Moved to California

Joseph has moved to California. He accepted a post-doctorate position at the University of California - San Diego, and he has spent this past week moving all his stuff from Tucson to his new apartment in the north part of San Diego, and getting setteled in at his new job. His good friend, Bill Nye, (not "the science guy") helped with the move and accompanied him on the trip. This weekend, Joseph and Bill are back in Tucson. Joseph is taking care of some final business, and his friends are giving him a farewell party. He made a lot of friends during his five-plus years in Arizona, both at the university and at church.

There are still many photographs of beautiful Arizona yet to be posted on this blog, and I am sure that Joseph has already taken some of the San Diego area.
