Sights and sounds of Payson ... Morning and evening, folks walking happy dogs, beautiful roses all around town (and how lovely the aroma), three kids walking along McLane with fishing poles over their shoulders, hummingbirds busy at the feeders, the gorgeous and mouth-watering salad section of Bashas' deli, sun and shadows across the Rim and the Mazatzals, the kind lady with a delightful English accent who calmed my distress at the chaos of Wal-Mart's remodeling and helped me find what I was looking for.
Payson. What a great place to live.
