Acclaim for Tucson Radisson

Tucson Radisson Pool, originally uploaded by Shirley Buxton.
As we stepped from our room onto the landing, this was our night view at the Tucson Radisson where we stayed three nights last week. It was a splendid hotel in other ways:
  • They supplied seamless internet service at no charge.
In my experience this is unusual for fine hotels. It seems strange, but cheaper lodging places seem more likely to provide free internet service.
Also very neat was a notice on the desk that down in the cafe they had laptops that any guest could use. Had my own so I didn’t need to check that out. It seems they also offer free copy services.
  • They served a spectacular breakfast buffet at no charge. (well, no additional charge. I’m sure we paid for it.)
Jerry and I both agree we have never eaten finer breakfasts anywhere. Presented on the bountiful buffet each morning were: eggs, bacon, sausage, biscuits and gravy, toast, quick bread loaves (banana, blueberry, oatmeal) , waffles, french toast, freshly baked muffins, oatmeal, fresh fruit, yogurt, milk, dry cereal, orange juice and outstanding coffee.
  • Our room was a two-room suite. The living room area had a couch, chairs, desk, fridge and a microwave.
  • Our mattress was a Select Comfort. Down comforter, lush pillows.
  • Parking was convenient and free.
  • The glass elevators took in the scene pictured here.
  • The prices of the rooms were reasonable.
  • The grounds were splendid.
Going to Tucson? Try the Radisson on Speedway. It’s a great place.

Tucson Conqueror’s Conference Report

Last night the auditorium was packed, and extra chairs were set to accommodate the 1200 people who attended the final service of the Conqueror’s Conference in Tucson. It was a dynamite conference, with powerful preaching, outstanding music, and beautiful people.

Jerry and I survived, thank you very much. The last function of the conference was a “banquet” last night after church, so it was around midnight when we got to bed. We were up at 6:00 this morning, ate breakfast in the dining room at 6:30, and at 7:20 (10 minutes ahead of our self-imposed schedule) our luggage and the girl’s luggage stowed away, we pulled from the parking lot of the Radisson onto Speedway and headed toward the freeway. I believe both girls were asleep before we left the city limits….and they slept most of the way home.

By 2:30 we had taken the girls to Brittany’s house in Kingman, made it to our place in Lake Havasu and had unloaded all our gear. About 4:00 I fell into unconsciousness on the couch, and Jerry was in like state in his recliner. 🙂

I love this picture of Brittany and Shelby that I snapped as they were descending in the glass elevator. They are sweet, tender girls whose histories have yet to be charted, and whose life journal is yet unscribed. I want them to be happy, to have stable marriages and beautiful, healthy children. I wish them joy and peace and prosperity. I am bent on the day they will know true love, and the moment they will experience the long glance of an adoring husband. Most of all I want them to continue their approach to God, and their dedication to His plan for their lives. He has such anticipation for each of them. You know that, don’t you?
