Formal(ish) Introductions: Part 1- Tucson and Breakfast Man

It has been so fun to get to know all kinds of new friends from around the world since I started blogging!  What wonderful peeps and dogs we have met.  "Hello!" to all of our new friends!
Since we are getting to know each other I thought it would be fun for you to know a little more about my peeps.

Where we live:
Breakfast Man and Lovie Lady (more on her later) live in Tucson, Arizona, USA. 
We love it in Tucson because about 10 minutes from our house we get to hike here:

Tucson is located in the Sonoran Desert and gets really, really hot in the summer.  Those tall things in the picture are called Saguaros and have big thorns on them so you really shouldn't do this:
"Why do your crazy peeps live there if it gets so hot?", you ask.  Well, because both of these pictures were taken in December.  (Just had to rub it in a bit for my friends like Byron who are living in the snow right now. Hi Byron! Stay warm!)   October through May is so pretty here.  It rarely gets below freezing and we get to play outside all spring, fall and winter. It's prefect for hiking, biking, climbing, flying (more on this to come), games of fetch- just about anything! During June, July and August and sometimes September we don't go outside unless we are wet or travel somewhere else. We spend most all of our time in the air conditioning or in the pool. 
In Tucson there are a lot of people who live here in the winter and somewhere else in the summer. We call them "Snowbirds", aka: The smartest people ever.  Someday the peeps hope to be smart.

A little more about Breakfast man (BM):
BM does bring home the bacon (yum...bacon...), but if he could, he would spend all of his time doing this:
Flying Uncle J's Glider in the middle of nowhere, aka: El Tiro Gliderport.I think you get the point.  He kinda loves to be up in the air in those silver birds and to borrow stuff from Uncle J. He taught me how to fly too! Here we are at my first lesson, age 12 weeks.     

I loved it!  I go everywhere I can with him, and we have had some fantastic adventures.
When BM and I aren't flying around in the middle of nowhere we are building our own RV-8 together.
When it's done it will look something like this:
Cousin J built that one himself and we all think he did a great job.  LL thinks it's super pretty, but I think it could use a bit more fur in it.  I'll have to work on that.
I am super- lucky to have such a great peep.  He is my very best friend.

Next up... Lovie Lady and Mr. Peanut.
