The mature landscaping with trees was a major factor in buying this house.

The landscaping is very nice too. I envy you that double garage.

Lots!

The important thing David is, do you have lots of model and painting space?

That was June '64. Seems like a long time ago now. My granddad is buried in Southlawn Cemetery in Tucson.

When I first came here in '74, there were several buildings on the base with painted green rocks for lawns. These days that has all been replaced with desert landscape. It's just simply too dry here for grass although nearly anything will grow with sufficient water.

Very nice,DD. Had an uncle in Phoenix, his "lawn" was painted green. No mowing, but he dusted it once a week. Like your front door.

Thank you. If you ever gat to Tucson, come by. We'll "put another steak on the barbie". The only places with grass around here are parks and golf courses.

Yes, Brian, it's closer to the higher mountains.

David, it looks great! Nice lawn too, no mowing.

You said the key word DD, that word is: "home." It makes all the difference between living in a house and having a home. Welcome home, you deserved it. Looks beautiful. Congratulations!

For some, the American Dream takes awhile. This is the first home I've owned.

I shall certainly miss having this view but after 12 1/2 years it has become more practical to live in town. The time out here has been extremely productive in models, 80 + or -, and a hundred or so paintings. I won't have unrestricted views from the new place so sunrise and set photos may be replaced with shots of thunderstorms over the Catalinas which from the new location are practically in the back yard.

Can you hear the coyotes? Yuk, yuk

The dealer did all the windows and charged $399. As it's brand new I didn't mind because around here tinted windows are almost a necessity. They gave me what I consider a good deal and a .9% rate on the financing which means about $300 over 3 years. I looked at Toyota Camrys and they are a bit nicer on the inside but also a bit more expensive and they offered a military discount only to active duty and didn't seem very friendly. Style means a lot more than speed and in the end I just could not come to terms with the grille. Call me somewhat old fashioned, I guess.
