Safford, Arizona ... Aren't you tired of me complaining about being so far behind? And all the pictures are again lost, so I am depressed about blogging today. I picked Safford as a new place to go and stay for ahwile. It is located 160 miles east of Phoenix and very near the New Mexico border. I looked it up on the internet and one of the stats is that it has a population of 33,000 people and is 2928 in elevation. There is one RV park, Lexington Pines, and it is just the nicest place to be. Friendly folk, great manager, good vibes! The weather has been warm days and chilly nights, my favorite ... but today it is COLD. So we drag out the heavier clothes. Found Curves and Mary, the worker bee there, was so welcoming.

I met Betty Drake my first day here when she invited me to share with her a piece of her freshly baked peach pie. Yesterday Betty and I went to see the movie, "Shall We Dance?" It is the best movie ever ... Richard Gere, J.Lo, Susan Sarandan. A feel good movie that should appeal to everyone.

CeCe, the manager, is just the best concierge and a lively activity organizer. She right off the bat asked me about natural healing, don't know why, maybe she smelled the oils? And she is telling everyone of my magic oils. Maybe that's why I'm here. I have often thought about having classes at RV parks but did not pursue that path. Maybe this is why I'm here.

I'm here because I wanted to spend some time in a small town in Arizona to study tax lien certificates, a subject that I took a weekend workshop about and have all the CDs and materials and internet stuff ... so why can't I settle down and get started? Such puzzlements. But the verdict in the Peterson case got my attention last night, and the craziness around Arafat's death depicted on CNN kinda captured my gaze ... would this ever happen in America?

So will end this ramble and post the latest picture of the twins sent by their dad, Andrew, my grandson.
