Historic Tucson



Went down to Tucson's historic district this afternoon to see the art museum and the old houses in the area. Some of the architecture was striking.



Part of a mural in the background sets off marble used in the museum's construction.

Things you don't see in Fertile



Okay, I was shooting from the hip and didn't get a good picture of this guy at the coffee shop because I didn't dare ask him if I could take his picture. Yellow shoes, mauve socks, white boxers, yellow shirt, plaid bow tie--and mauve jacket on a man who looked to be in his late eighties. Priceless.

The Tucson effect

Each year when December rolls around, I debate: Is it worth it to go to Arizona? Should I just stay home and tend the stove?

Most years, I cave in and go to Tucson, but with mixed feelings. Perhaps this year the charm will wear off. Perhaps this year I will get there and realize that I really no longer enjoy it.
