Tucson Times

Mel & I went to Tucson for the weekend.  We left late Friday afternoon and once we got clear of the Phoenix traffic it was AWESOME driving with the top down in the Camaro.  This pic is of Mel when we were checking out this morning.  We had such a great time at The Big Blue House.  If you're ever needing to stay overnight in Tucson, you should stay here.  We had such a great time.  It was so pretty and had such a laid back, chill vibe that was pretty much perfect.  Each of the rooms has a kitchen and hanging on the porch was so cool.  Miss Lea says that the first weekend after Halloween is not to be missed.  Huge Dia de los Muertos celebrations and a parade goes right down the street in front of the house.  Sitting on the porch with a few adult beverages is a great way to observe the goings ons.  I'm going to try to talk Mel into.  Sounds like a pretty cool way to celebrate our anniversary if you ask me.

We'll have to make sure that that trip get us to Tucson early enough on a weekday so that we can do the tour at the Airplane Boneyard.  We were at least able to drive along side the fence on base and check some of it out - again pretty cool to have the convertible since that made it extra easy!  

Here's one plane that caught Mel's eye.  Wonder why?  

Now I'm in my office, watching football.  Badly needing the Bears to win so I'll tie for first place in the football pool and contemplating creating something.  Hopefully for the Papertrey Playhouse and Dawn.
