The third cup of coffee

Ship Island Ms.

Sitting on our back porch listening to the chorus of birds in the early morning cool, sipping the last cup of coffee, preparing for our trip to the gym to move, lift and stretch, it is a beautiful spring day in Arizona.

A friend gave us a Topsy Turvy tomato hanging grower and we are watching our plantlings begin to grown for an eventural harvest. Our first venture into growing something in a long time.

Our museum palo verde is preparing to blossom its little yellow flowers. At just five years old it has two masaive truncks coming out of the ground that are 10 inches wide and we are wondering just how big it will get.

Yesterday was tax preperation day and a meeting with some advisors about getting ready for retirement for Laura in five years. Like many, the flat market has broken the rule of 72s for us and we need something to improve. I am amazed at how much our life changed after we moved west and bought real estate and got an empty nest. Glimmers of hope. But the real treasure is life, health and a morning like this.
