We had a great day today. After leaving Tucson Mountain Park, we headed across the Gates Pass. It’s a road with a great view, but certainly is winding and narrow.
After a quick stop at Best Buy to pick up a disk drive exterior to replace one which had malfunctioned, we stopped to see an old friend from junior high school that I hadn’t seen in 50 years. Katherine Madison Cerino and her husband, John, live in North Tucson with a view of Mount Lemmon and the Catalina Mountains to the north and the Rincon Mountains to the east. It was a pleasure to remember our days in Swarthmore and talk about the people we both knew.
I must say I like Katherine and John’s home and life style. I haven’t experienced a Tucson summer, but an 80-degree day followed by 45-degree night, seemed just about perfect. Being able to sit out side in the shade with a book and no bugs is another plus. I’m so glad we were able to get together and hope to see them again in less than 50 years.
