Always a pleasure to be in Arizona -- warm temps, sunny skies, etc. Today is my dad's 81st birthday, and we have a few things planned:

- Lunch plans at a retirement community he is thinking he may move to . It is a very nice place, and I really think this is the right thing for him to do -- he misses being around people!

- Dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant in Tucson. Their specialty is a dish called Carne Seca. Besides just being amazingly good, the way it is created is quite interesting -- the beef is "cooked" on screens on the roof! Gives you some idea just how warm the sun is here in southern Arizona!

Tomorrow I run in my first out of town 5K race up at the University of Arizona. Will blog about that tomorrow.

    It is great that you and your dad will be able to spend time together. Dinner sounds delicious. I love Mexican food and hope your father loves the new community because loneliness is not fun. Best of success in your run emoticon . -- Lou

    Happy birthday to your Dad! Enjoy AZ. We were out there last year at this time visiting my Mother and sister near PHX. I wish I could get out there more often.

    My dad is in Tempe. We did something similar when he turned 80.

    A tip: remember to hydrate constantly. AZ's air is very drying. I always wanted to get the t-shirt with a picture of the old man on the front. He's desiccated. The caption reads "but, its a dry heat".
