Sun City Celebrates 50 years. I highlighted that on Sunday, May 16th you can join the Sun Cities and I for a theater presentation of a woman portraying his secretary and birthday cake.

Midcentury living in the "West most Western Town" in Scottsdale

Thompson Rock garden is a Sunny Slope paradise that is folk art sculpted from rock, concrete and other items. I had pleasure of meeting the woman who lives there now, she opened the gate allowing for a close up view.

She introduced us to her friend Gus and his amazing Building Material Museum + garden. His Family move in Sept. 1929 and began building his amazing collection in the 50’s

Boojum Tree, which is a fantasy place that evokes old Mexico and a hidden jungle atmosphere.

Show preview!

My day began with lunch Los Reyes De La Torta in Sunny Slope with the delightful Christina Plante. Coffee was nice displayed on arrival with the wafting scent of cinnamon. YUM The hongas (mushroom) quesadilla was tasty and large. Paul enjoyed the leftovers and NOW wants to go! We made our to view the Thompson Rock Garden from the inside with Miriam the current own of the 50 year old garden. When Miriam mentioned that her friend Gus had a great collection. Now to find something more fantastic there was bit of a drive. Most shocking was the coming to a culda sac and continuing on. We arrived at Gus Building Material Museum. My jaw dropped and I got to touch a medallion from the old Fox Theater in Downtown Phoenix.
The day did not end there. We made our way to the Boojum Tree, a complete out of Valley experience into the wild of a tropical paradise. See and hear more stories attend either show on Thurs April 8 or Fri. April 9th
