Welcome to my first venture into the world of blogging. I live part of the year in Arizona and the other part in Michigan, so I hope to share observations about both regions.

I will be at the Arts & Craft Fair on Saturday. A great opportunity to check out the new book, Stony’s Tale!
Saturday, 11/10/18 – 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

PLUSES AND MINUSES

Glad to be back in Arizona. On the plus side: the temperature in The Valley (aka Phoenix) is to be 74 degrees today. On the minus side: the weather qualities just below hazardous– not the best for someone like me, who has a couple of lung issues from an early childhood fungal infection, which scarred my lungs.

We loved visiting our kids and grandkids in Michigan and Ohio. That was, of course, the plus side. On the minus side, the temperatures ranged from -3 all the way up to a balmy 15 degrees.
