Mr. Dork and I have been searching for a vacation
Oh my gosh.
There was endless sunshine. Endless. And the glorious heat! We had to install a pool in the backyard :) (That's someone else's mansion in the background. Bet they're thrilled to overlook our pool.)
Oh my gosh.
I was stunned at how cheap the consumer goods and groceries were! We pay about 40% more for the same items in Canada.
I know every city has different housing prices, but I nearly fell over when we were passing all these signs advertising new (nice!) houses that said, "Houses from the $80s", "Houses from the $90s". Can you imagine? It seemed like such a good deal that I wanted to buy a dozen. Believe me, I can't afford a dozen, but I hate to pass up a sale.
My favorite moment though was visiting the library in a real classy part of town and smack dab on the front door is a sign telling you you can't bring your gun inside. I think that most Canadians, unless arrested at gunpoint, will never see a pistol in their entire lives, especially not at the library!
If I haven't sold you yet on Arizona, you should also know there are dragons you can ride:
And not a snow cloud in the sky.
