On Leaving "Wrinkle City"
Too soon after Christmas it was time to leave our Tucson abode. When Lesley was here and she and her Mom went to the Stitch 'n' Chatter group, the topic of "local names" for the community came up. The first name mentioned referred to the style of construction of the homes – Tin Can City! The second name referred to the age of the residents – we were told that the average age was 72, so the community was called "Wrinkle City!" The third name also related to the age of the residents, but it was slightly more morbid – "God's Waiting Room!"
