A Day in Tucson
I have awakened to a glorious day filled with sunshine in Tucson, Arizona. As I type this, I have just eaten waffles and strawberries prepared by my host Homer. He is taking pretty good care of me.
My first impression of Tucson is that it is really laid back over here. That's not a bad thing, because it is good for the soul to be away from the hustle and bustle. I have been pleasantly surprised that Tucson does have trees and green spaces. It's not at all tumbleweeds and sand blowing across the desert.
Homer's country estate is lush with very friendly creatures. There is Henny Penny the chicken, Joey, Puff, Mama Cat, and Snowball. Additionally, birds are always visiting this peaceful oasis. If I didn't know any better, I would think Homer is the unditzy version of Snow White.
This is me holding Homer's cat Puff. So, far... Puff is not nearly as mischievous as you may think. Sure, he has one vampire tooth hanging down, but don't let that stop you from picking him up. For a cat, Puff is quite huggable and needs loving as much as any other pet or person would.
Last night, Homer and I pigged out at Rosa's Mexican Restaurant. He had cheese enchiladas... I had a chicken chimichanga loaded with sour cream. Yum! Afterwards, I got to meet the very friendly Forrest who lives in the guest house. Soon, his friends came over and we were treated to quite the musical hoedown. The comeraderie made me smile a lot last night.
