Today we went to Tucson. Our neighbors were kind enough to watch Izzie for the day and so we spent the day in Tucson. It was an interesting trip to say the least. On the way we went through Florence which has several Federal prisons. One of them had an execution scheduled today, at 10:00 a m to be exact, which was about 20 minutes before we drove by it. Needless to say there was quiet a bit of traffic due to all the TV networks that were there. Then on the way home we got caught in a roadblock, set up because of an armed bank robbery, it took forever to get home. But we had a good time in between. Went to lunch at one of our favorite places and did a bit of shopping, then we drove around the historical district. We were talking about how much that area of Tucson looks so much like New Orleans when we realized that both areas were settled by the Spanish so it makes some sense that they are similar.
Except for the plants, the colors, the style makes me think of New Orleans.
We had lunch at La Placita, one of our favorites.

Tomorrow is perfect for a " Joycie day" neither of us has any plans, so I hope it will be a lazy day. It will be in the 90"s, so I think it will be too hot to do anything. Hope you all are having a good week.
