Back in Tucson. Got in early afternoon, unloaded the Beast into the waiting Hyundai (yclept "Buttercup") and was in the house doing laundry soon thereafter. Retrieved my dog from the neighbor friend who'd been looking after her, took a run to the grocery store, and here we are.
Reflections on the time away will follow, sometime. Tomorrow at 8 the HVAC people show up for the annual checkup for the big box on the roof.
