After driving nearly 2000 miles and traveling along many famous historical trails like the Sante Fe, the Oregon and the El Camino Real, I finally arrived safetly in Minnesota on Monday evening. Overall, the trip went without a hitch and the car performed admirably. Little did I realize the battery problems that lay ahead today on Tuesday and the need to call AAA for assistance. In the photos, my good friend Jim is showing the Minnesota registration of my Honda next to the Arizona plates. That's me with the jumper cables, and the Italian Pie is where we had a wonderful luncheon, not as planned, but delayed by three hours. Good anyway! Well tomorrow is a new day.....and we have some great tennis planned...plus back-up transportation if needed!
In the days and weeks to come, it is my intent to post photos and share my many rich and fulfilling Arizona experiences. Hopefully, this blog will engender and create an interest on the part of the reader to know more about the diversity of the "Grand Canyon State" and possibly visit. (November 23rd, 2009)
I was born and raised in the cold country of Minnesota. After spending thirty seven years in education, retirement in Arizona was my answer. Today, my interests and passions include traveling, playing tennis and being with my grandchildren.
