Heeeeyyyyyyy, look who it is:
It’s everyone’s favorite octogenarian – soon to be nonagenarian – Expert Dottie!
I recently visited her in Sedona, Arizona to see her new digs. Nice views, eh? We took an early morning walk, and it was breathtaking.
Once the sun popped up, the views became even more stunning.
Of course, the company was even better than the views.
I neglected to take selfies with her – we got sidetracked. For those of you wondering, Dottie’s doing awesome. It’s hard to believe she’ll be 90 in a couple of weeks, or that a year ago around this time she was preparing for heart surgery.
She’s once again charming everyone around her and making tons of new friends. As is her usual M.O.
We did a couple of laps, then sped off for breakfast and a busy day.
If anyone would like to send Dottie birthday wishes, I will happily pass them along to her. I’m sure she’d be thrilled to hear from you.
She’s feeling better every day. Lucky me got to have lunch with her and her new friends at the rehab center.
I’ll see her again on Thursday, so you should expect more selfies soon!
No, in fact, I have not fallen off the face of the Earth! I’m still here. But instead of being in the Land of Enchantment, I now live in Phoenix, Arizona.
The story of how, and why is coming. (I’ll give you a hint – the answer has nothing to do with the question I’ve been asked for weeks now, which is, “because Albuquerque isn’t hot enough for you?”)
I gotta go with baby steps for now.
But I feel bad for neglecting all of you, so here’s a glimpse into part of what’s happened since I arrived:
“Reunited and it feels so good…”
That’s Dottie and me. We’re not that good at selfies. Er, I’m not that good at selfies, that is. Dottie may be phenomenal at selfies – I haven’t asked her – but since she has a flip phone, I kinda doubt it.
More about how I came to spend the last couple of days with this charming lady soon. Also, we will be back with an Experts post, probably on Friday.
And the story of the move will be ongoing for awhile. Because it’s a long story.
Hopefully you’ll find it to be an interesting one. 🙂
