Mid-march found us in Tucson visiting two of Jerry's cousins, Sandy MacNaughton (and hubby Don) and Jacque Bates. It's been a long time since these three were together and there were many tales told. The truth of those tales will remain questionable, but the fun had by all was undoubted. A plan for a reunion of all of the Begley cousins is now in the works. We were so thankful to Sandy and Don's daughter and son-in-law, Kristy and Rob, for the super parking site in their driveway. It was the perfect spot for us!
After the family visit we rolled on south from Tucson and are now spending some time with friends on a ranch near Bisbee, Arizona. The owners are taking a break to travel a little and our friends Jan and Barry are babysitting the animals for a while. So here we are sharing the views of the mountains, enjoying the sun and the solitude. The old rodeo horse, Ajo, and wild burros who live here wait for Jan to feed them each morning.
