I took Lynn to the Phoenix Sky Harbor airport yesterday.  She left at about one-thirty and got safely home.  I could track the flight on the Delta site as she flew.  Pretty cool, in my estimation.  It took me about three laps around Terminal 3 at the Sky Harbor to escape.  I finally had to ignore the Navigator and use my Montana Windage to get out.  The trip was about sixty miles from the Park.  I spent the rest of the day just hanging out and playing the guitar.  I had some leftover enchilada casserole for dinner with a nice fresh green salad.  Life is good.

This morning I got out early and replaced the tires on Dolores II and took a short ride around the Park to check her out.  All went well.  I then took a drive to the closest Costco and had lunch and bought some candy to help celebrate Easter. Then I went to a nearby WalMart and returned the Trekking Poles.  They had already begun to self-destruct after only being out on three hikes.  The new ones I got from Costco earlier in the week look to be of much better quality.  Time will tell.

After dinner I took another ride around the Park.  It got up to 92 today, but by dinnertime it had cooled enough to make for a pleasant ride. Lynn called a few times today with various questions and comments and it was good to hear her voice.  She didn't tell me to do anything, so that was good.  I plan on going to Mass at St. James the Greater Church tomorrow morning.  I'm unaware as to why he is greater than the other St. James, but may know more after I've been there.  I'll keep you posted...

It's very quiet here in the Park, except for the traffic noise on I-17.  Not many folks moving about today, perhaps due to the heat or such.  I'm looking forward to moving out into the desert again on Monday.  The solace of the place is good for one's spirit, I've found.  Dark nights surrounded by the firmament is good.  There are several bike trails there, so I'll try my hand, so to speak, at tackling some of the easier ones.  Hiking trails abound there too.  We stayed there on our journey south in January of 2011, so I have some sense of what to expect.

Have a Happy and Blessed Easter and keep in touch, even if it's a stretch...

Haven't seen Lynn yet on this end.Quiet seems to be the central idea of this post. Quiet is good especially with fresh air to breath and a chair to sit in. Enjoy the desert. Happy Easter. Hope to Kayak today, but a lot on my agenda. It will be a toss up as to what actually gets done. What has to get done: call Tom, you, send two wedding cards, kayaking?, and church web site. Stay well and happy in the dry and quiet air.
