I am currently in Nashville Tennessee sitting in the Comfort Inn doing a seminar on “Spiritual Renewal” for the Green Ridge Church of Christ. A fine group of God’s People let me tell you. Jack Martin is serving them as a minister and doing a great job. I am having a good time.

I noticed last nite that my good friend Wade has tagged me with a list of questions from A to Z. As I understand the unspoken etiquette of tagging I am supposed to respond with answers to the questions and then tag someone else. So here goes:

    Wolverine, huh? Wish I had a Batman toothbrush. I’ve got a Batman everything else. Think I’ll check out Get Smart on your recommendation.

    Bobby, Bobby, Bobby… the seasons in Tucson are not all the same! They are just different from the rest of the world,and more subtly differentiated from each other. It goes something like this:

    July-August: monsoon (humidity,afternoon downpours)
    September-October: fall recovery (temperatures drop to 90’s-80’s, you can go outside all day)
    November-February: winter (mountain snows, valley rain showers, people shiver thru 50 degree temps)
    March-April: spring (palo verde trees bloom, we break out the shorts again)
    May: summer (cactus blossoms)
    June: uber-summer (cactus fruit sets, mountain fires start, 100+ degree temps, people stay inside 8am-6pm unless you’re in the pool)

    Easterners have to be knocked over the head with their daffodils and snowstorms and leaf-piles and such to know what time of year it is. Here in the wild west, we learn to read the signs a bit more carefully. Don’t worry,Bobby, you’ll get the hang of it.
