Tucson City Fathers think I am a really handsome guy!


Since moving to Tucson last September I have only spent a few weeks there, (now in Laredo, TX, off to Freer TX in a few minutes).

Have continued to find it funkier than expected and easy to get around with no traffic jams ala San Diego.

But I have to say that I am very surprised to find that the Tucson City Fathers and Mothers find me so attractive.

Seems everywhere I go at night I keep getting my picture taken.

For years I have maintained the practice of simply going with the flow of traffic and have no speeding tickets.

Driving around some abandoned streets at night I really don't keep track of the posted speed and all of a sudden am facing a couple of tickets.

Its quite an honor but at a couple a hundred a shot I am beginning to learn that around Tucson its better to go slow.

1. One of the things I LOVE about Tucson is its relatively slower pace -- a nice relaxed feel to it.

Where I was from outside of Philly, my friends knew me to be a relatively laidback
kinda guy.

I still had to back everything WAY off when I moved here.

2. People may like to take your pic, but kids LOVE to hear me talk!

I kid you not. Kids around my apartment loves to catch me off guard and say hi. They have learned if I am not thinking I will speak in my native southern accent. They think it is awesome. There is a six month old that can't stop laughing at me saying howdy to him. His parents have tried to duplicate it, but he knows the difference from a real southern accent and a fake. He hears the fake kind he cries, hear the real deal he can't stop giggling!

3. I don't know what's worse in Tucson

The drivers or the roads.

I guess it sort of makes sense (for Tucsonians), if your roads are old and crumbling and filled with potholes you should probably go slow.

Drives me effing nuts.
