10:22 am Sunday November 18, 2007

At 6:30 am it was 45 degrees at our site in this Casa Grande desert location. As I looked out my window, I saw men and women wearing shorts but also bundled up in hooded sweatshirts briskly setting out for their daily walks as the sun came up. Since I usually sleep later than this, I rarely get to see my fellow senior citizens as they join in this early morning mass exodus. Much to my doctor’s frustration, I personally think exercise is highly overrated! I know, I know—in spite of my disdain for working out—I am aware of the benefits but I HATE it! Quite possibly, my family will someday stand over me and my body when my joints, organs and muscles have stopped working and say, “We told you so!” That is unless I turn over a new leaf one of these days and I continue to have faith I will see the error of my ways …

Stepping back a few years, we visit a very real part of my early history and a moment in time dubbed the “Cold War” when we continue this travelogue at the Titan Missile Museum south of Tucson.
