75 Degrees in Tucson Dec. 31, 2008

Funny the only way we get to have a snowman in Tucson is to fill one with hot air.

Snow in Tucson

Well at least you can see it from Tucson.

The Catalina Mountains are covered in snow down to the 3000 ft level. Oro valley is about 2800 ft.and getting few flakes.

It could be more after dark. We almost had a white Christmas. We are having a white Boxing Day.

Life on the run

When does it start? This need to be always on the go is moving down the age ladder.

When I found this at the neighbors up the street it reminded me to slow down a little. No need to rush to the end of the journey.

I think Ben Franklin was right "haste makes waste" and possibly a shoter life span.

The View From Target

This is what we see every time we walk out of the Target store in Oro Valley, AZ.

What a fantastic view.

Pima County Courthouse

I almost never go to downtown Tucson. This morning there was a photo walk with a Tucson Photography Meetup group.
There is an NPR StoryCore trailer in the park across from the courthouse. Behind the courthouse is another park with fountains, flowers and pigeons, lots of pigeons.

I'll be coming back downtown on another weekend morning for more shots of downtown Tucson.

Need a Light

Thousand and thousands of lights, but not the one we are looking for.

The search to find light continues.

Best Western Scottsdale

When we made the online reservation we asked for a quiet room overlooking the pool.

We got it, and it is quiet.

After The Office Potluck

The Christmas office pot luck was today following the office meeting about Social Networking and Web 2.0.

The surest way to get real estate agents to a meeting is "Have FOOD".

This is what half the table looks like as the meal winds down. There was a separate table for deserts and cookies. The best way for a diabetic to survive the holiday goodies is to eat proteins, take pictures of the food, stay completely away from the sweets and write about. Which is what I am doing now. :)

Flying way too fast for that landing

I knew this wasn't going to be a good day when I put my boots on this morning.
