The Younger Daughter has been promoted and is moving on from Missouri; hence, an addition to the Your Tax Dollars at Work list. In about a week she's heading off to Arizona to do whatever it is that archeologists do on the Coronado National Forest.
I'm kind of wondering just how much forest there can be when all the photos I've seen from that part of Arizona feature a lot of rock, bare dirt, and cholla cactus, but who knows? I have a vague recollection of there being trees up in the mountains when we lived in Tucson several decades ago. I guess I'll find out next fall when we head that way with the Guppy. We now have the perfect excuse to be snowbirds -- a relative who lives in Arizona. If the kid is smart, she'll make sure to find a place to live that does not include RV parking.
