Does this look different? No ??? Well, this blog is being produced on a brand new computer and it's a big deal to me. This is a MacBook Air. My 9 yr old MacBook Pro was on it's last leg. We'd replaced a few of it's parts but it still only had 20 min of battery time, got too hot to hold when charging and the mouse pad was failing. When we were in Scottsdale, the Apple store was calling and we answered. I'm still in a bit of a learning curve but I love all the additional features.
We are home ! But far from settled. The stairs are still missing most of their railings and some touch up painting is needed and the patio hasn't been started. But our stuff is all here and this is where we'll finally hang our hats.
Before we headed north, we settled into Jeff and Jen's guest room and their beautiful home in North Scottsdale. We shopped and ate and had the RV worked on. The pool was too chilly but still nice to lounge around.
Guinness also lives there. He is a tad suspicious and does not like to have his picture taken. Every time I raised my phone, he quickly retreated. I finally tried the dog bone bribe but his wary look says he still didn't trust me. He's a great little gentle dog.
A couple weeks ago, we joined Jen and Jeff at their Club for 9 holes. I meant to take a lot of pics of this scenic course. I only managed to capture one of Jen before I forgot about photography and had to concentrate on staying out of the desert. There were snake (rattlesnake to be specific) warnings and I gave up a ball to the cactus field instead of risking my life.
Another day, we headed down to Tucson to the Pima Air Museum. We'd been there years ago but it has changed significantly. This is the trainer that P learned to fly in when he was just a kid and
And this is the same kid at the hanger dedicated to the Vietnam conflict. Still very cute and young at heart.
Jon had a short layover in Phoenix and we were able to meet for breakfast. Jeff is now a manager at the GM Autonomous Vehicle site and he gave us a grand tour. Very interesting to learn how they are developing an autonomous driving car and partnering with Lyft to get into that market.
Jeff, Jon, the matriarch and patriarch and Jennifer....... a mighty fine looking bunch I think.
The weather is warm here on the western slope but very very windy. Lots of snow on the peaks and the trees are leafing out. We will get back in the golf and pickle ball scene once the winds calm down. Until then, there are still boxes to unpack, pictures to hang and friends to catch up with........
