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.

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.

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.

Snazzy! Did it come with the windows blacked-out? mriley reminded me of an old tip for shopping used cars. You turn on the radio and if it's tuned to a rock station the transmission is shot.

I had that need to know feeling a few years ago. Chickened out at 120 with more pedal to go.

sleek and stylish dd! I have a 2007 model.
David Duckett, Comment for image # 3851310 May 17 10:46
I don't know. and probably never will. It has a 189 hp engine and quite good acceleration when you step on the gas but I rarely go over 80. I would guess it can do 120 easily.

What is this vehicle's top speed? When I ask teenage drivers this question, they tend to quickly answer before realizing they should have replied they didn't know.
