Watching disastrous hurricane news coverage and wondering why we complain about heat and some humidity…

We are blessed, even in summer, to be living in Sun Lakes, Arizona! The competitors in our Association continue to enjoy their Saturday morning outings, and we are very pleased to report the results of their contests:
