Hi all,

Looking forward to chatting with you all on occasion.  I retired last year from Boeing with 28 years as an senior avionics engineer.  Worked on design, program management, and customer fleet introduction on 777, 747-8, and 787,  Prior to that I retired as Master Chief (E9) Avionics Technician, U S Navy.

We are now snow birding between Sammamish and Glendale.  We live on the 12 fairway of the Legend at Arrowhead Golf Club here in Glendale.

I prefer not to associate with witches, they make me nervous.  (If you are able to be in two places at the same time, in my book, you are a witch!  Unless you are Loki of Asgard?)

Arizona, huh?  I used to live in San Diego (still not too far from there now) and it seemed like a lot of Arizonaians (Arizona-ites?  Arizona-uns?  Arizonans?  Arizonans ;)) would move AWAY from there in the summer and come to San Diego to get away from the heat.  What are they called?  "Heat-birds?"  "Sun-birds?"

Anyways, welcome!

You see, we live in Washington 6 months, then in Arizona 6 months. So while we don't live in both simultaneously as you thought to assume, we do it alternately.  As for San Diego, in 20 years of Naval service I spent far to much time there.  Literally speaking we would probably be "rainbirds" considering Seattle's weather.  Hope this clears this up for you.

There was nothing to clear up. ;)  I was being 100% facetious in the first paragraph, and just being silly in the second.  It was just a long winded welcome. :)
