I've got a goal to meet by Saturday. Could I have a little bit of cooperation, please? I'd appreciate it.
Dear Phoenix Firemen,
Thank you for your early morning jog in the park this morning. You make the desert scenery so lovely.
Dear young couple that is the epitome of youth, good looks, athletics, hair salons and tanning booths,
You chose the ugliest dog I have ever seen as a pet. What were you thinking?
Dear Scruffy man in the fishing hat,
There's no need to greet your fellow hikers with that kind of morning breath.
Just saying . . .
Dear little old lady with the hiking poles,
How in the heck can you hike so much faster than me? I've been working on endurance and speed all year. I've got much more endurance, but I guess I still need to work on speed.
Dear little red snake on the trail,
I am supposing you are perfectly harmless. For sure you are teeny tiny. However, I would appreciate it if you stayed off the trail, (for your own safety, of course). You scared me and made me a bit jumpy the rest of the morning. You lizards darting across the trail . . . you weren't helping either.
Dear Phoenix Mountains,
I love you too.
