Flowers and a Travel Plan

How are things with you, Gentle Reader?  We are fine.  Jim continues to improve.  We're still going to the gym frequently.  One of the things we do are walking lunges.  It's difficult, and requires balance to remain upright.  When we started, Jim needed to hug the wall to stop potential falls, now he's out in the middle of the floor.  It's been pretty cool to see the improvement. 
Allergy season has begun in the Old Pueblo.  The steenking yellow trees and bushes are blooming.  These are yuccas, and their amazing flower spikes.  Their displays never cease to amaze me with the sheer size of the effort.

The first blooming cactus in the RV park.

So, things are progressing.  We are, however, bored spitless.  In fact, some days our ennui knows no bounds.  We sigh, and wonder how we will stand it until mid-May.  We're not.  If we don't get a break from Tucson we are going to go nuts.  Therefore, we will be going to Paris for two and a half weeks.

PARIS!  We're going to PARIS!  I am so excited.  Honestly, I don't care if it rains every day we're there, it's PARIS.


  1. Wow. When you take a break you really take a break. Have a fantastic time.

    1. Thank you! If we hadn't seen "special fare" and "sale" attached to the airfare and hotel prices I wouldn't have clicked on it. But those words were hard to escape.

  2. Sounds great! You're long overdue for a change of scenery.

  3. Sounds like just what the doctor ordered!

  4. OMG -- that's awesome! Paris!
