Tucson By Choice!

Walk This Way...

Walk this way...

The funniest comment I ever heard in response to "Walk this way..." was made by my Grandpa, who lived on the eastern shore of Virginia.  He was taking us out to a favorite seafood restaurant for soft-shelled crabs.

The hostess invited us to follow her, saying "Please walk this way." 

"Honey, if I could walk that way," quipped Grandpa, "I wouldn't need the talcum powder."

But I digress...

Our community, Tucson Estates II, is surrounded on three sides by Tucson Mountain Park.  It's 44,000 acres of pristine Arizona Sonoran desert, with miles and miles of trails for hiking.

Slim Jim here never fails to make me smile as he beckons "Walk this way..."
