No TIME CHANGE here!!!!

One of the NEAT things about Arizona is, they don't change TIME. So while the rest of you are fighting with setting your clocks, we don't have to! That seems mighty nice to me, especially since we are so close to the West Coast. So, it's the same time this morning as it was yesterday at this time!!!! But BOY, the rest of you are way ahead of us now......:-)..........Wait until we start heading WEST,,,,,then we will PAY for it......2 hrs ahead in Lincoln, 3 hrs in Tallahassee. :-(

Scott seems to be progressing within his Doctors expectations against this Leukemia that has dealt him such a disastrous blow. It has really set him and Ann back. It seems his Insurance is not what you would expect the State of Nebraska to have for their employee's. It leaves a staggering amount of medical co-pays and living expenses for them to pay out of pocket. I personally think this is a DISGRACE to the state. However, that being said, it doesn't help them pay the bills. Ann is having to take a Leave of Absence from her job to assist as his personal nurse. He couldn't survive without her. Thus, her salary is on hold. Scott has plenty of "sick leave" built up, its all the medical and extra living expense that's killing them.

We had a pretty busy week again, but a lot of it was getting this INCOME TAX info compiled. WHEW,,,we about have it ready to ship off to them. I hate paying the IRS!!! It depresses me!! I probably shouldn't feel that way, but I can't help it. It's now when I wish I was REAL rich or REAL poor. It seems they don't pay any taxes, us middle wage earners pay it all for them!!!

This beautiful DESERT continues to green up and warm up. Wild Flowers are starting to bloom all over the country side and soon every cactus in the place will have a BIG blossom on it. Its a sight to see!!!!

Thanks to you all again for your thoughts and prayers for Scott. Words can't explain how much we all appreciate it..........Again here is his caringbridge web site so you can keep up with his progress. As he gets to feeling better he will be able to keep us all informed more.

Glad you stopped by. Hope to see you again next week. Stay SAFE !!!!!

It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
