This past Tuesday, I arrived in Minneapolis to attend my niece's wedding and to get in some tennis playing with my now older tennis buddy, Jim. That's Jim in the tennis clothes holding up a tennis racquet. What is interesting and noteworthy about this trip is that my car broke down a second time. This time, however, we were "johnny on the spot" and jumped my vehicle and then headed out to buy a new battery. We were especially proud of the fact that we completed this unforeseen challenge in less than an hour and still had time to play some great tennis. The days are quite beautiful now in Minnesota.
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.
