There is a great new exhibit at the Mini-Time Museum of Miniatures in Tucson, Arizona, Lagniappe Plantation Home. The detail is amazing.

Every room is wonderfully done. The attention to detail for the time period is a delight to see.

The word ‘lagniappe’ has the same meaning as getting a thirteenth doughnut when you ordered a dozen, like a ‘thank you’. This exhibit is sure to please you and you’ll get that ‘extra’ bit of delight when you see it.

There is also a great Christmas display.

The trees are beginning to turn colors in Sabino Canyon. Beautiful day today. Riding the tram up to the top of the canyon, then walking down, you can get lots of great photographs.

Amazing hiking trails in Sabino Canyon too. If you buy a tram ticket at the entrance, you can get off and on at any stop, all day long.

Agua Caliente Park is located in Tucson, Arizona at 12325 E Roger Road. The ponds and grounds are very nice, but my favorite part about the park is the Ranch House. The kitchen is like stepping back into time..I believe the late 50’s to early 60’s.

I imagine a Ranch House had to be very efficient with not a whole lot of frills. The kitchen, dining and living room fit the picture I have in my head of that to a ‘t’. Everything is neat, well organized, and functional.

The history of this park has been traced from 5500 years ago to the present. Read about it on the Friends Of Agua Caliente’s history page. They have done a wonderful job of keeping this park up and preserved for us all to see and enjoy.
