My good friend Jim in his TENNIS TOUSAN blog reminded me the other day that Winter had definitely arrived in Minnesota. Here in Arizona, the changes in season are not as apparent or dramatic; no snow, no ice, or below zero temperatures. While there is frost on some evenings, the only real change is the need for one to prune back summer plants, which I was doing this week on the flower beds that dot the rock retaining rock wall that surrounds. Nevertheless, Winter will arrive officially on Tuesday, December 21st at 4:31 Mountain time here in 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.
