Primitive and Modern

    Chatty is back from her fabulous trip back through time in Northern Arizona.  She came home (it felt good to be home);
she kissed The Wiz (it felt good to kiss The Wiz); then she noticed that The Wiz was coughing his head off, sneezing,  trembling like an aspen, puffing like a grampus, and altogether QUITE

    Last time, she visited Tombstone and Bisbee.

    This time, she is concentrating on Tucson, and all the fun things to do there.

    Her good friend Book Girl has agreed to come along for the ride.

    Because time is limited (2½  days, 2 nights), Chatty has had to rein in her enthusiasm and keep it to what can realistically be done in that time with real appreciation – instead of just flying from one place to another. It’s tough, because there are so …
