I'm from Phoenix, Arizona, and just posted a thread a few days back and have been pleased at how people jumped in to help.
I am married with husband, 3 cats, a piano, 12 and 6 string guitars, and several flutes. Mostly I play the standard silver flute like you see in orchestras but recently got a "Native American Flute" which is wooden and has a wonderful "eerie" sound. My husband, I, and a third partner have a band called "Mountain Rain" that plays at music festivals, coffeehouses, and the like. I teach blind and visually impaired adults independent living skills.
For those not familiar with Phoenix, it is desert territory. After an oven like summer (110+ degrees), we are finally getting refreshing cool nights (50's) and perfect "get outdoors and enjoy it" days(70's).
Take care, and a great Thanksgiving to all!
