Fort Huachuca

Tuesday, 12 Jan 2016 | Views [270]

A New Year

Monday, 4 Jan 2016 | Views [173]

MY BELATED NEW YEAR RESOLUTION is to keep this journal updated regularly, even though little of importance seems to have occurred.  We spent the holidays quietly in Wilcox in the still unseasonably cold weather.  We rang in the new year with ... Read more >

Shivering Snowbirds

Sunday, 13 Dec 2015 | Views [235]

Ready to Go

THERE SEEMS TO BE SOME CONFUSION about our previous entry.  Our trip isn't TOTALLY over — we're just in another country, the USA.  After breakfast in Paris, lunch in Reykjavik, and dinner in Colorado — no wonder we’re confused.... Read more >
