What I did
Tohono del Chul

Monday, April 22, 2013

This morning it got warm quickly, if you can call 83 degrees by ten thirty warm.  We're enjoying the heat, especially after all of the "cold spots" that we've seen this trip.

We met our friends at the Tohono del Chul Park for lunch and had a great visit and meal.  We see them rarely, usually once in Helena and the once when we're down here in the winter. We share common interests, which makes the visits fun.  We toured the grounds some after eating and got some good shots of the many flowering cacti.  I'll edit the shots and post them tomorrow in Glendale.  

Why are we going to Glendale, you may ask.  Well the Ford Dealer her in Tucson was too busy, just like the one in Las Cruces.  Thus the AC wasn't really fixed.  We have an appointment with Sanderson Ford.  Interestingly, they have facilities there where we can get power and water hookups while the fix the coach.  Sounds great to us.

We hope to do some more motorhome shopping there before we settle in at an old favorite park, McDowell Mountain Regional Park.  You may remember that we stopped there on the way down here in January.  Time and the miles surely do fly!

It has cooled down nicely here at the Bar J.  The nearly full moon lights the area in a subtle, yet shadow provoking light.  The birds have settled in, but the multitudinous canines are still restless and are making their presence known.

We too are about to "hit the kip", as the Irish might say.  We'll head out early to beat the heat a bit and get to Glendale early.  Hopefully they will be able to do the AC repair tomorrow, but if not, we have plenty to keep us occupied.

See you in Glendale...

If the flowers are blooming in Tucson, they should be fantastic at McDowell. Looking forward to pixes.

Well, a little behind here cuz by the time you get this you will be in Glendale and hopefully your AC is running cooly now. We are getting a slow warm up here but I am sure you follow that online. I sure am glad there is an internet and I know you are too....for all the reasons you and i share. Anyway, getting ready here for Hailey's wedding shower so lots of company. When do your renters depart?
