Sunshine and Spring Training

I’ve been a little m.i.a. from the blog these past few weeks but I’ve been enjoying some downtime in Arizona visiting my oldest daughter who moved out there last August.   We had some fun exploring the Sedona area and Grand Canyon, but my husband was in his glory sitting in the stands of his first Spring Training game with the Cactus League in Phoenix.   Great day watching the Cubs vs Diamondbacks in the warm Arizona sunshine!



  • Everyone Needs to go MIA every now and then! True story when we left Mass in converted highway bus AZ was the original destination and pops wanted to continue to study and work with:

    “Paolo Soleri (21 June 1919 – 9 April 2013) was an Italian architect. He established the educational Cosanti Foundation and Arcosanti. Soleri was a lecturer in the College of Architecture at Arizona State University and a National Design Award recipient in 2006.”

    We got as far as New Mexico before the bus decided it was enough travel (The Rest of story). And yes the Bus was bought from Bowen bus lines that had the cape cod route Buzzards Bay, Woods hole, etc…Think still has the Massachusetts plate from 1968 on the farm.

    I spent three months at Fort Huachuca deployed for testing communications equipment back in My active duty days mobile communications Group…1981 Apr-May-June…1979 Joint Service all branches// –Joint Test Element (JTE) Joint Task Force (JTF) was established 1979…Special Duty…

    • It was my first visit there. I bet a lot has changed since you were there! 😊


      • Without a doubt nothing but change worldwide…I looked at some old pictures of Lanesville BW Polaroid childhood 1957-1968 and some color ones my younger brother and mother went on visits to her moms in Bay View 1970’s 1980’s and 1990’s… while I was servicing overseas…Pictures of Duley street to Lanes cove, pictures from Gloucester Harbor and Washington street from Bay view to Lanesville brother said he walked it even had “lanes Cove Market Open seven days a week before closed think apartments now.” And the building on Tucker street and Washington street 127, was antique Shop (and a Pigeon hang out too in my days there. They were restoring the building next door to that which was next to our rented house 1957-1968 then.

        I see if I can scan them and send some time down the line…if possible???
