    Thanks for the pictures, Terri. I've been wondering for YEARS what your pebble looks like - my DH and FIL were both PanAm pilots and had Guam layovers OFTEN in the '60s. Neither EVER took pictures.

    I understand your missing New England. I miss it too when I'm in AZ for the winter - but I don't miss slipping on the ice or shoveling snow! That's why I'm in Tucson for the winter :lol:

    Tucson! Love Tucson. Was just there in March. Saw the Sonora Desert Museum for the third time. Just can't stay away. Also visited Tombstone for the first time. Had a wonderful visit.

    I have cousins that live somewhere around the Tucson area...dont' know where.

    I know in the airport here, there's some pictures and storys about PanAm and their flights. Something about PanAm being the first on island or something or other.

    Pan Am was the first airline to MANY places, especially across the Pacific in the China Clipper - the beautiful Flying Boat. We're about to celebrate the 75th anniversary of that magnificent airplane. I'll save the details for a time when I'm not hijacking Terri's thread!

    Couldn't resist 1 more hijack :lol: We're members of the Desert Museum so we can take visiting friends with passes. It's one of the WORLD's great museums - a combination of flora and fauna on 200+ acres. Best time is in March/April when the desert flowers and cacti are blooming 8) 8) 8) .

    No, I'm not with the Chamber of Commerce :wink:

    Thanks Terri , just beautiful pics . Loved the banana tree pic but that spider is big , isn't it ? My daughter saw it and cringed ! She hates spiders . I'm sure in a way you will miss being in Guam lol. Do you know where he will be stationed next ? Annie

    The spider really wasn't that big. We zoomed in for a better view. Was about the size of a quarter, little bigger maybe.

    We are hoping for VA, well, that's what we are penciled in for.
