While certainly not on the scale of General Macarthur's return to the Philippines during WWII and....
......not even on par with Michael Jordan's return to the NBA....
....but perhaps as momentous as the return of the Jedi....
....I began my return to Oro Valley, AZ but not without challenge including a 2 hour layover in Chicago where I was confronted with the temptation of a wine bar. I succumbed to the temptation with not just 1 but 2 glasses of wine. I thought it would put me to sleep on the long flight but no. Finally, after 13 hours I arrived in the evening of a day that had a high of 75 and sun.
Like last year, my first full day was a day of rain, weird. But forecast looking good and lots of images and reports to come.
