         Yesterday we began our day with another wonderful Arizona sunrise for our sendoff as we headed to the Phoenix airport. Got there, checked in and hung out waiting for our flight back to Toronto. Departing and arriving 20 minutes late. Got a shuttle  for our rent a car, up graded to a nice Nissan sentra . Headed to our Daughter's in Aurora and was welcomed by everyone about 9:30 local time. Snacks and catching up, then off to bed for a good night's sleep.

           Ma's  service is this Wednesday in Whitby Ontario. For the Obit you can click here interested.
          Today did a bit of running around town here for a few items, looking for some dress clothes for me. Hmm. Son In law had a bag full of things he was purging that I was welcome to check out, Guess what I found a wonderful suit and dress shirt that actually fit me! Picture on another posting with a real nice suit.
       They have a new addiction to their family Fergie a 10 week old Goldendoodle. What a fun  puppy they have here and quiet playful.

she is a pretty good puppy
         It is way too cold here for me after bering in the desert. temps today -13c (8f) plus a cold wind chill. I don;t care how cols the desert is it sure is not like this.
       So I went to the rec centre and got some walking done on the inside walking track. They have a vice pool, hockey rink and exercise facilities here.

Where have we been this Winter


  1. Sorta makes you really appreciate the Q weather! :c)

    1. I have always appreciated the winter weather in the Q. much better than here.

  2. Aurora is obviously not in the snowbelt! Good start for your grandson's blog.

    1. Not as much snow as you have there and you are not that far away.

  3. Enjoy your Mother's Celebration of Life. Hope you will be back in Quartzsite before too long.
    Be Safe!

    It's about time.

  4. I love taking photos from the plane. Beautiful.
    That Salmon fillet looks delicious.

    1. If we have to fly it is nice to take some pictures from up in the air for a change.
      The salmon was wonderful.

  5. I like taking pictures out of the window of a plane. Well, that's when I actually get a window seat. It sure looks cold up that way. I agree with the Weavers in that the salmon sure looks good.

    1. A window seat is what I enjoy too. And the pictures always fun.

  6. Glad you made it home okay - definitely a weather shock. That salmon filet looks delicious.

    1. Yes to cold is COLD. Sure don't miss it. Yes the salmon was awesome.

  7. Even though you always have loved the southwest temps, it must be 100% nicer after a quick trip back home to the northern cold and snow! See you soon!

    1. You are so right, no matter what it is there in the southwest, it is better than here back home !


We love it when you take the time to drop us a line.
