Spent the last week in Tucson, Arizona, with one set of grandparents.  Not too much winter there.  We visited the town of Tombstone, one of the last wide-open frontier boomtowns in the American Old West.  The town prospered from about 1877 to 1890, during which the town's mines produced $40 to $85 million in silver bullion, the largest productive silver district in Arizona. Its population grew from 100 to around 14,000 in less than 7 years. It is best known as the site of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral and now draws most of its revenue from tourism.  This stage driver is bundled up against the cold desert weather waiting for paying customers to take a ride.

And for the update on our Marching Sundevils, they did a great job at the SCSBOA Championships, coming in second behind the band that never loses.  I think the head judge that consults with their field show has something to do with that...  Anyway, to see the show go here.  I'm sad that the marching season is over, but maybe now I can do other things too.  It was an extremely busy, but fun, two months.  Glad you enjoyed it too!

    Congrats to the sun devils for a successful year. You have represented them very well.
