In between I walked in Rillito River Park. A rainstorm came up as I walked in a section called Rio Vista Park. I 'hid out" under a picnic table overhang. As I stood and waited in the rain, a flock of White-Crowned Sparrows came out to forage.
After that walk, my wife, her step-mother and I visited an art gallery we knew. Then my wife and I headed to the Finger Rock Trail, a trail through the Saguaro cacti in the Santa Catalina Mountain foothills.

At night we watched the sunset from a foothill height, as it shone a sliver of yellow and orange among deep cloud cover.
This morning we got up at dawn and made it to our 8 a.m. plane back to DFW. We bid a fond farewell to my wife's stepmother and her Shih Tzu dogs Pip and Posey. We made it to our flight in good order. During the flight I watched a documentary about the Grand Canyon, which I have only seen from the air while on airline flights. I also read the Margaret Oliphaunt novel upon which I am working.
After we landed, we drove home. Then I headed into the office, stopping at Panda Express first for String Bean Chicken, mixed vegetables and Broccoli Beef. I worked for a few hours. After work, I headed to my Weight Watchers meeting, where my weight was a bit up. Then I walked on the Chisholm Trail in Plano.
We finished the evening with turkey and roast beef on sandwich slims and salad.
My wife worked on a soup.
