DSCN0017DSCN6315DSCN0532DSCN6288Where I grew up, there were no brick buildings. It was a desert town, and if you believed in Santa Claus he might show up in a dune buggy, rather than a sleigh. There was not a shortage of palm trees or cactus and I don’t think there were any fireplaces. Maybe a few in some of the older homes. The sun usually shown brightly on Christmas morning. I think it was a very long time before I experienced snow. It’s so  interesting to think about how each of us was raised and how we adapted to that environment.
