The New Digs

I used to live in Central Phoenix – I lived in Central Phoenix for 31 years.  Most of my childhood however, was spent in a ‘suburb’ of Phoenix to the S.E., the location of Arizona State University, Tempe.

I lived there from when my dad married my stepmom, until I got married and we found a house.

So the prodigal resident returns.  Tempe is surrounded by Phoenix, Chandler, Scottsdale and Mesa, so it’s land locked.  No more outward growth.  It used to be a college/farm town.  Now it’s just college.  But the population has more than doubled in the past 31 years.  And building has grown taller to take the growth.

Coincidentally, my new digs were built in 1981, an expanse of the the town to the South, when it was all previously either cotton or alfalfa.  This newer part of town is largely foreign to me, so it’s like moving to a new city, kinda.

I’m now sharing a townhouse.  No outside maintenance, but with a communal swimming pool, and community mailbox.  So, it’s a mixed bag.

Hopefully, we’ll save some money, though.
