With our daytime temperatures now in the 100's, I was relieved to bring my pruning, digging, and my gathering of other desert debris to an end. It is probably a good thing that our Waste Management Company only makes "Brush and Bulky" a semi annual event. All I know is that my body,after a weekend of work, is exhausted and is now decorated with numerous scratches, needle pricks and assorted itches from handling desert flora. As you can see, my helpers also had a hard day, however they were great workers, and I felt especially bad when they were carded by our local authorities as possible illegals. While I haven't heard back, they really seemed to be nice people. Their work ethic really stood out! I'm not sure we all work that hard? Well that's another side of Arizona!!!!
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.
