joansteward and I will be leaving Friday morning (maybe late morning, I hope earlier rather than later) for Phoenix. Since it's 400 miles away from Los Angeles, and since school has started, there will be no nephews tagging along.
Maybe next year.
In the mean time, I've done a fair amount of packing, and will finish up tomorrow. Most supplies will be purchased in Arizona.
Those who intend to go, I hope to see you there.
