silly sign• From my father's silly sign collection.

• It really was a different world. Walter Cronkite was the most prominent anchorman when I was a child. He was the most trusted news image and voice on television. And I was there. With his death that world has come to an end. ~ link

• There is no internet or landline connection at the condo where we'll be staying for a few weeks. We move tomorrow. So my online activity will be limited.

• We submitted an offer for our #1 choice house earlier this week. The seller was supposed to respond by 5 p.m. tonight. We heard nothing so we now assume that it is a no go. We've now put an offer in on a HUD home utilizing their online bidding system. We should hear on that one by Monday. It would require a lot of work so we bid fairly low.

Tonight's winds and humidity build-up have all fizzled with no rain.

• And you thought we were all a bunch of retirees! Seven Arizona cities have received the "Playful City, USA" designation. It has to do with kid-friendliness. ~ link
