A wife, mother, grandmother, friend, Weeble. Over 40 years of married life we’ve added a little girl who grew up and later graced us with a great son-in-law and one grandchild we adore.
We’ve had 20 years of travel opportunities sponsored by Uncle Sam. The final place we landed was the Arizona desert. Over all the years we traveled our road together we’ve had many homes, making the best of it where we landed. Places with adventures, a few mis-adventures for seasoning and a lot of laughter along the way.
Honey-Darling, a great guy and good man, always concerned with my happiness, once asked early on if there was anything I liked about Phoenix. I was hot most (all) of the time, my truck didn’t have any air conditioning (we bought it in Alaska), we were raising a teenager (insert your own mental image here).
Response – I liked the road out-of-town just fine.
I never actually got around to running away. Over time my feelings changed. The dust from all the transfers settled. The mythical stark beauty of the desert and wonderful surprises found here and a healthy sense of humor, won me over. We’ve settled into life at our home in the desert.
There have been more good days, months, years than bad and it adds up to a great life.
If you are interested in laughing along with me (or even at me from time to time), and perhaps sharing some of the wisdom you’ve gained along the way while we grow older and better this could be the place for you.
Regardless of where you are in your journey you are always welcome.
Come sit on my electronic porch with a cup of your favorite whatever and visit from time to time as we get on with the business of living a life from 60 to 100 with as much fun and as little damage as possible!
Home Comes Alive updates the next big adventure of my good life with a husband and two young dogs – all living together peacefully, most of the time. Welcome to everyone interested in sharing the fun and foibles!
