Scottsdale, Peoria Top 10 retirement rankings

 Several Arizona Cities made the Top Cities to Retire list. It is hard to beat Arizona’s weather in the winter time. My wife and I have lived in Arizona year around since 2004. We would not trade this desert living life style for any place else.

There are so many things to do here and lots to see. If the summer gets to hot in Phoenix….just jump in the car and drive 2hrs north. It is hard to believe but, a short drive north, the temperature is 20-40 degrees cooler.

PHOENIX — It’s probably no secret to those already here.

Lazy Arizona Sunday

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday afternoon as much as I am! Enjoying the unseasonably cool temperatures for Mesa, Arizona (Phoenix metro). Usually by this time of year, our daytime temperatures reach into the low 100’s A few days ago (May 15th) we had over and inch of rain that afternoon and evening.

Today I am sitting on my back patio in the 45+ community of Sunland Village East, watching some t.v. and, mowing my yard during commercials. It is hard to believe how fast our grape fruit tree is producing new fruit. I just finished picking all of the over ripe fruit two weeks ago. Family, friends, and neighbors picked and ate a few hundred from this tree. The new grape-fruit will be ready to start picking by the end of December, and really get sweet by mid January. If you find yourself in Arizona this winter — call me, I will let you come and pick some. Many of neighbors have an abundance of oranges and nectarines. With a bit notice, they will allow us to pick some.

Hope you have enjoyed your day and, if you know of anyone looking to purchase a home in an Arizona Retirement Community — I would greatly appreciate the referral!
