Default I'm almost done in Arizona

I've been very busy the past month or so... after having purchased a condo in Scottsdale, Az. as an investment. Bought it without Mrs Kuki, so 10 days ago I brought her down with me, and we proceeded to furnish the place.
Actually cruise related, because some cruise friends from Missouri met us here and helped decorate.

Mrs. Kuki headed home Sunday, and I've been left to finish up some details, and wait for deliveries, installs, etc.

The place is now done, and we'll look forward to spending some Canadian winter days down here. Here's a couple of pics...
My view for morning coffee

The living room



More pics of the joint in various stages in the personal galleries if you care to take a peak....

Congratulations on the new condo, Kuki!!!

But I am afraid I have to tell you that having your cruise friends come help you decorate your new condo does not make it "cruise related".
Nice try, though.

I love the chaise next to the fireplace. do you really need a fireplace in Arizona?
Also, nice view of the golf course - must be heaven to you!

Congratulations! I know you will enjoy escaping to the south when the temps in Calgary drop below freezing.... and stay there! Next time Don and I pass through Arizona, we'll give you a call!

Good looking place Kuki! Now that you live on a golf course you probably will never leave the place.

I just bought a new condo in Minnesota. It's pretty nice and even has air conditioning and is nicer than my regular house. Here's a picture.



Take care,
Mike

No excuses, with all the camera equipment you have, why the phone cam? Nice place Kuki, best of luck with it. I know you'll be spending lots of time there since it snows till May in Calgary.
