A Beautiful Morning and A Thank You

Not ready to come back to the blogging world 
so much to do and catch up with and grieve but
this morning was so wonderful I had to post a photo.
.
Monsoon Season is officially over but a few tropical storms can pop up 
here and there. 
We desert dwellers love this extra blessings of rain. 
Today at noon when I took this photo it was a cool, for Tucson, 74
beautiful overcast gray day with a drizzling rain gently falling.
A real treat for me. 
A few doors were open to let in the soft sweet air in.
A real treat living where I do. It is usually to hot to leave the doors open
because every critter you don't want in your home will walk in.
From scorpions, wolf spiders and the odd snake or two.

So to have a door open today was wonderful.
Reminds me very much of the day Dr. Watson died.
Just a sweet beautiful day.
.

I will be back to blogging in a few weeks after I catch up.
.
I would like to Thank everyone who left such lovely and wonderful
comments on Watson's post and e-mails.
I have read them many time as my tears fell and they comforted me.
I tried to answer each one but it was very hard.
Several friends of friends and a few new people that I don't know 
left heartfelt notes. 
They were very appreciated.

  15. Hi again, dear Gayle! Mrs. Shady and I went on a cross country trip to California last summer and drove through the Sonoran desert. We stayed in Tuscon a couple of days and visited Saguaro National Park. We saw a herd of javelina sleeping in the shade outside the visitors' center. I collect cacti and loved seeing vast fields of columnar and globular species. We had a great time in your vicinity.

    Thank you very much for visiting SDMM today and for letting me know that you appreciated my comment about Watson. I reviewed your post about him and again experienced pangs of sadness. My thoughts and prayers are with you, Gayle, as you go forward without that wonderful little guy in your life.

    Love, Tom (Shady)
