Unplanned trip to Arizona

I'm on my way to Arizona.
My dad (98 years old) called this morning and said he thinks he should come home (back to Minnesota)
He wanted to try spending one more winter there but he says he getting too weak and tires out too easily. (Plus the closest hospital is 100 miles away).

from this....

to this....

So I'll be boarding a plane on Monday to Phoenix, renting a car and driving 100 miles south to his little house in a small remote town. Then we drive back to Phoenix next Friday and fly back to Minnesota.

It will be a short trip for me but I plan to drive back to Arizona about a month so I can close up his house properly for the summer.

I hope....

So I will not bother to drag along my computer and I won't be posting or visiting until I get back.

See you all then!
(wish me luck that everything goes okay)

Hoping you have a safe trip. It's not often one wants to come to the snow for winter, but he knows what he wants!
