Things Are Looking Up

We just returned from the beauty and challenge of the red rocks of Moab and Sedona. Our modified Geo Tracker “Toby” took us to places most vehicles could not go. It was fun but we also had a treat on returning home.

The cooler fall temperatures seem to have inspired a lot of clean-up around the hood. Our location near 4th and 17th had a couple of challenging spots for walking and they have really been spruced up. Thanks to those property owners for making our neighborhood more walkable and MUCH more attractive. Making our usual morning rounds we observed a number of properties along 4th Avenue looking tidier.

As the temperatures are more friendly for outdoor work, I hope momentum will build for individual and group efforts to clean up our public spaces. Perhaps the volunteer group from earlier this year will resume efforts to trim around stop signs and along sidewalks. I will be glad to join in.

I am a relatively recent Armory Park resident (2/16) along with my wife, Donna and our little dog Lulu. In our 7+ decades, Donna and I lived over 30 years in Anchorage, Alaska before moving to Arizona. We have been Arizona residents for 16 years before coming here including 12 in Green Valley and four in west Tucson. We love the neighborhood for its history, walkability and interesting residents. Lulu insists on walking every day so you may see us following her around and picking up trash to keep our neighborhood presentable.
