Dancing with The Mariachis

“Do you have a list of things you always wanted to do in Tucson that you never got around to?”

The question came from Linda. She and Mike (John’s son) had moved to Tucson the previous fall and were exploring all things new and exciting about living in the southwest. It was fun showing them some of our favorite places and activities. But now our situations had reversed. I had decided it was time for me to leave Tucson for a place better suited to aging in place and had put my name on a waiting list for just such a place — Becketwood, a senior coop in Minneapolis where I had history and daughters.

He had oversized ears and big round eyes that gave him a perpetually startled look. I knew I should not be taking in a kitten, but he was adorable. Resistance was futile. I named him Sweet William the Lionhearted, which seemed appropriate at the time. But as happens, the fuzzy five pound kitty became a glossy twelve pound cat now called Bill. Continue reading

Ultimately, we decided the following notice was negative in its approach:

We recently started putting this message in the back of all SRP publications. In case you haven’t seen it:

A London publisher once said, “People will beg, borrow or steal a book, but not buy.”
