Last evening, the La Mariposa Swim Team had its first meet which was held at Ventana Canyon, a beautiful lodge in the Catalina Foothills, just north of town. Piano Man performed well in both the backstroke and freestyle, while Desert Princess did the same in her two events, even finishing second in the freestyle. It was great fun, and while there was nervousness by the grandkids over their first meet, afterwards their faces had smiles, and an attitude of "Let's do that again!" As you can tell Grandpa was very proud.
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.
