The Cactus Keep Us Amazed

All of these buds opened up overnight.  What a sight.

Prescott, AZ

Yesterday we drove to Prescott to see the Western Art Show.  Prescott has a great town square, and a Court House that could have been from "Back to the Future".  Great hamburgers at The Palace!

More Blooms

There are new blooms every morning.  Just when I think it's all over - it starts again.

Waiting for a Jet Airplane ..

We've just spent a week in Arkansas and Missouri visiting family. So tired of hotels - specifically Holiday Inn Express. Last night's hotel, Bentonville, AR, had the worst tv we've seen in a hotel. Very old, small crt that needed convergence in the worst way. Could not tell the scores during the bb game! We stay in HI Expresses because their quality is something upon which can be relied. Except for the Bentonville property.

Just to give us a little nudge out of here - our promised Enterprise rental car discount (as promised by the agent at pickup) could not be obtained because the ticket counter did not open until 10am! All the other counters were open. I guess I could go through security again, but...

Donna is looking forward to dry air again!

It's Dry

Yesterday was the driest ever recorded in the valley of the sun -- 2% humidity!!! Must be the reason I'm so thirsty.
