Finally, I sold my Tucson foothills custom home that I've re-designed, renovated, and expanded. I just moved to North-central Phoenix, after 30 years in Tucson. I've loved Tucson, but it's time to move on. :-)
A native of Southern Minnesota, I escaped the long gray, cold winters, and arrived on the hottest day in Tucson back in 1984...just in-time to experience the washes and low-lying areas flowing with Monsoon storm water! :-0
Although I had a job offer in San Antonio, I "took the long way around, and fell in love with Arizona, when I learned they played baseball and tennis nearly year 'round; and I decided to stay!
I have been a Chief Executive/General Manager most of my life, with more than 28 years operating my own systems integration sales business of selling large, centralized high-speed check imaging hardward and software to banks and data centers around the nation.
Now, I am looking forward to starting a new chapter in my life, and new career in the Valley!
Now, as a Empty-Nester, I have been figuring out the loop highways and arterial streets; finding interesting places for good music and dancing; developing new single women and men acquaintances that some may turn into friendships; and also "church shopping".
If you also love Good Music, and Dancing with an Attentive Partner, and believe that "Character Really Does Count", send me a note!

I prefer romantic comedies, and comedies in general, since there is enough violence in our world, I don't see a reason to have to watch, and pay money to see more?
Favorite shows: The Mentalist; Monk; MLB Baseball; Person of Interest; Mad Men; Suits; Franklin & Bash, and all those old Black & White series Re-runs of old Leave it to Beaver, Perry Mason, The Fugitive, Route 66--I love seeing all those mid-century big, long cars with those huge fins and chrome!

TIVO/DVR (Digital Video Recorder) for the programs I miss while being out, or watching something else/channel surfing. It avoids channel flipping, and missing one program when two good ones are being broadcast at the same time slot.
The biggest benefit is to be able to fast-forward past all the commercials! :-))
