Saguaros tomorrow...

It's April...

...and yes, yesterday was sunny here (for any of you readers who live here in WA)...
...the day before yesterday... SNOWED!
Enough already.

My wife and I are heading to Arizona tomorrow, to Tucson.
I can hardly believe it's been over 14 years since I visited.
I lived in Arizona (about an hour and a half south of Tucson) from the time I was 5 to when I was 8.
When my parents moved to Georgia, I missed the clear night skies--for months I kept thinking "WHERE are the stars? WHERE are the mountains?"

We lived in a neighborhood on the edge of town--the last subdivision before the desert began, and being over a mile-high, the night-time sky was often more white than dark, so plentiful were the pinpoints of starlight...

This visit will only be a few days, but what a welcome change from the lingering reminders of winter...

Change of subject.
As the French say--du coq a l'ane...(from the rooster to the donkey)

If you've never seen the film "The Return of Martin Guerre," rent it.

Time to expose pasty legs to the sun tomorrow...
