Southwest Still a Winner in the Early Spring

Better late than never is the old proverb and so we touch base with AZ in the early spring even as the spring wears on in the mid west.  It was a fine sojourn on most fronts though an eight hour flight delay on the outward leg definitely put a test on flying patience quotient.   

What else did was on the docket.  There was a trip to Mesa to see a Cubs pre-season outing.  The big Z, now newly demoted to the bull pen, looked like a real winner and threw five scoreless innings. We took Flat Stanley to the park with us so we could show his exploits to our grandson.

Other highlights were the Desert Poppies that were peppering the countryside and the Heard Museum of Native American Culture.
