I am a semi-retired California attorney and live in California when not relaxing in Arizona. I enjoy traveling, outdoor activities especially hiking, and gardening. I run 2 miles a day and play racket ball several times a week. I enjoy most of my meals made from scratch (the old fashioned way) using quality produce and avoid fast food restaurants and eating out at run-of-the-mill restaurants. I am happy and content and because I enjoy my home, I take good care of it. I trust that you will also enjoy the home if you decide to choose it for your get-away.
