Relaxing in Tucson for the Winter: Jan 24-Apr 2, 2016

You may recall from the last blog, we stayed a couple months in Southern California near the Salton Sea, then traveled to Tucson for the remainder of the winter. “Settled in.” Watched the Super Bowl. Found musicians to jam with.  Gave and received massages. Located a great fitness center. Victory Worship Center is our favorite church in Tucson. Plenty of great praise and worship, followed by excellent teachings every week. Volunteered to help with the Easter Egg hunt. 300 volunteers. 2,000 children. Plenty of grins while watching children of all ages hunt for Easter eggs.

We celebrated Bev’s 86th birthday. Happy Birthday Bev! Joe flew in from Colorado to join in the festivities. Always great seeing Joe. He helped Sherry turn one large ostrich egg into enough scrambled eggs to feed thirteen of us. Ostrich eggs taste a bit creamier and lighter than chicken eggs.

Evenings usually fill with Bev, Sherry, and Bob playing card games. Sometimes we watch a movie together, like “Jersey Boys”, “Monsters, Inc.”, or “Mama Mia”. Fun shows. One evening, a Tucson magician kept us entertained as we kept wondering “How’d he do that?”

Changing to daylight savings time while in Arizona drives us crazy. Not because Arizona doesn’t change their time, (well, maybe that’s part of it), but because when we awake on the first day of daylight savings time, every clock is different, and we have to remember where we are at, whether daylight savings time changed where we are at, and then figure out which clock has the right time! I’m sure we never got it right, because now we’re always late! <grin>

Our Adventure these last three years started with taking a break, and it’s been great. Now Bob is doing his best to qualify for a Cyber Security position with the Federal Government. He has a few certifications to acquire, and some schooling to complete to get it done, but that’s what he would like to do to wrap up his final working years before retirement.  Wish him luck! But until a hiring happens, we will continue our “gypsy lifestyle” while On Our Adventure!
