First, before I say anything else, I want to thank Fe-Lady and her husband Brant for their hospitality in hosting me on my visit to Arizona. It goes without saying that Don and I appreciate everything they did for us while we were there to make us feel welcome and show us around their city. We had a most enjoyable stay, and it will be something to remember for a long time. I also value the friendship I have made and hope this will be just the beginning of future meetings.
We got back to semi-warm temps and sunshine, so the switch back to Michigan weather wasn't quite as painful as it could have been. But this morning, back to dark and rainy. After sunshine and dry, that is hard to take. At least the grass is green and the flowers are blooming!
I am going to try to recap some of the day-to-day experiences we had, and hope this doesn't get too long and drawn out.
