Soon I Will Be Leaving Texas & Greeting You From Phoenix

Starting Thursday, March 15, I will be sending blog greetings from the Phoenix, Arizona zone.

I called my mom and dad a few minutes ago to tell them I'd soon be incoming.

Apparently there will be a BBQ the day after I arrive. Spencer Jack will be there. I have not seen Spencer Jack since August of 2008.

I did not use the Southwest Airlines gift card I got at a Christmas party to book the flight. Flying Southwest to get to Phoenix is just way too much bother, what with that annoying Wright Amendment ridiculousness. I would have had to fly to Denver, Albuquerque or Las Vegas, before continuing on to Phoenix.

US Airways will be taking me directly to Phoenix, with no visit to Las Vegas, Denver or Albuquerque.

Now that I finally got around to booking a flight to see my mom and dad, sister, brother, brother-in-law, nephews, sister-in-law and Spencer Jack, I'm sort of looking forward to it.

Apparently I get to go to an olive grove, among other things. I don't recollect ever going to an olive grove before.

Arizona and BBQ? I like brisket but chopped rattlesnake seems less appealing. I look forward to your report on what they claim BBQ to be in AZ. I hope it is better than BBQ in Woodinville...

Well, Steve A, you need to factor in that these are all transplanted Pacific Northwesterners doing the BBQing. I'm hoping for barbecued salmon. With fresh dungeness crab brought in by my nephew.

Yummm, dungeness crab.

Have a great time and post lots of pics!
