Winter Reflections

Greetings from the desert!  I've been pretty busy lately, but I wanted to pop in to say hi, and share some wonderful news.  My little grandson, Tyler Jet, who lives in Massachusetts, is coming to visit for a week in February!  He will be nine months old and will finally get to meet his Tucson uncles.  Needless to say, I am very happy and excited about seeing Tyler Jet and his parents next month.

Here are some watery reflections from a couple of weeks ago:

Nice reflections of a place I love and miss, especially since we are covered in snow here in Massachusetts! I hope your family makes it out of here before the next storm arrives! You need to kiss and hold that baby!
