Leo, this is your month


And here is your "scope"

 Your ideas and actions expand outward in ever-widening circles. The mystical Pisces Moon in your 8th House of Deep Sharing intertwines your inner thoughts with those around you. Nevertheless, you may experience such inter-connectedness as an invasion of privacy. From a spiritual perspective, everyone subconsciously knows everything and accepting this oneness as the default can be quite empowering. Paradoxically, your thoughts and the outcome are simultaneous, for cause and effect are interrelated. Carl Sagan said, We are one species. We are star stuff.

How We Live

 Growing old is mandatory -  Growing up is optional 

It's been a good life with all of its challenges and rewards.  It might be enough to satisfy ourselves with what we have accomplished  to date but we all know "YOU'RE ONLY AS GOOD AS YOUR NEXT GIG!"

Onward and upward!  Join in the fun!


Meet Us

 Tucson Prime Timers hail from all across North America and from all walks of life.  Each member's unique life experiences and points of view go into creating an interesting and lively group. 

The majority of our members are retired, but several are still decades away from belonging to "the leisure class". 

Many have served America as members of the armed services in World War II, Korea, Viet Nam or the Gulf War. 

Tucson Prime Timers may be grandfathers, fathers, partnered or single.  

There are many who seem to be on the go all the time and some who prefer the quiet company of others at home.

Most of our members are full time residents of the Tucson area,  some are snowbirds. 

Fortunately, most of us are at a point in our lives where we realize that our "net worth" is not measured in money and "stuff", but rather in terms of our friendships. 

Whatever your reason for joining; to make new friends, to get out more often, to have new adventures...Tucson Prime Timers extends a warm welcome, hoping that we can become a meaningful part of your life.





It was in 1955 and I was stationed at Lowry AFB in Denver, Colorado. Across the way was Fitzsimmons Army Base. As our base laundry was undesirable, we fly-guys went to the Army base to use theirs. One day as I was leaving to go back to Lowry, I looked up and saw a man wave at me so I waved back. Then it dawned on me who it was as the radio and TV were talking about him all the time, every day! Eisenhower had a heart attack and was at the Fitzsimmons Army Hospital. "It’s gotta be him.”

I got back to Lowry and found that Ike waved to anyone in uniform from his upstairs terrace where he was recuperating. My next trip to the Army base, I got brazen enough to go up to see him. A Marine Captain said for me to go right in as the President received all and any service men that wanted to see him. Ike was in a wheelchair and held out his hand to shake. We had a very pleasant talk and I told him the Set-School training for Bombing /Navigation was coming to an end, but I would come back to say “good-bye” to him.

A week later I had mustered out of Lowry and would be on my way to a SAC (Strategic Air Command)
Base in New Mexico. “I thought you said you were from New England”, said the President. “I am, but I can’t afford to go there now” I said. “Well, son, Mamie is going back to Washington, actually Andrews AFB, and you can go with her, if you like”.

And so I did. I met Mamie at the guest terminal building on Lowry the next afternoon. Mamie was driven there and she came right over to us and shook our hands then turned and walked the stairway to the plane. There were five of us Servicemen that boarded the Columbine next. We did not see Mamie again until we landed at Andrews.  She wished us “Godspeed'' and from that day on I LIKED IKE.



While so many men and women joined the armed forces in the late 60’s and 70’s, it should be known that a whole cadre of men chose alternative routes. I for one in 1970, having just graduated from college had to make a grave decision. I grew up in a very religious home where following the inner voice was given weight. I decided to become a conscientious objector. This was contrary to most of my church family, but my pastor endorsed me and off I went to be interviewed by my draft board,

They wanted to rid me as soon as possible and allowed me to have this status if I worked within their parameters. Specifically I was to work in a hospital or religious organization for two years and not to receive an annual income greater that $5000.

While at Pratt, as an honor student, I was given an intern-like assignment that put me in touch with the national Lutheran church.

It is here that I worked for two years.

I do not regret my decision and I have respect for the men who risked their lives, but it was a foolish war driven by foolish men.

I have stayed consistent over the years with my convictions and I believe they are a real part of me. I did not suffer during this time. I was lonely and unsure of myself but in some sense it was part of my growing up.

I salute those who served and I hope they know that stand beside them.




I only spent three years in the Army in the early to mid 50s and two of those years I was assigned to the Air Force in Okinawa and Southern Japan.  For the remainder of my time, I was assigned to four different Army bases in the States either for school or for duty. Odd what can occur sometimes though as noted below.

While in Okinawa, I had a feisty roommate who had a wife in the States but was seeing a young Okinawan woman off base.  One night he returned to our room with deep scratches down each side of his face.  They were bad enough to prompt me to take him to the infirmary to thwart any infection since they had been done by someone's finger nails.  He got into a fight with a Marine and had him pinned to the floor when the Marine reached up and clawed his face.  I have often wondered how the scaring went over with the wife at home and what his explanation might have been.  I never kept contact with him to know.

When in Southern Japan I could not understand why my after shave seemed to continually be evaporating until returning to the room one day to find my roommate unconscious.  I got him to the infirmary only to find out he had been drinking my after shave all of this time and it finally got to him.  It was a surprise to me since we had access to liquor at the clubs on base at very reasonable prices (cheaper than after shave but he wasn't having to pay for it).  Needless to say, I requested a new roommate.

SAAF has 5 gay events:Gay Events


Is a family and pet-friendly walk-a-thon fundraiser with the goal of increasing awareness and support for people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. Each year SAAF provides services to nearly 1200 people living with HIV and AIDS and delivers targeted prevention outreach and education programs to over 17,000 people who are high-risk for infection.

Jello Wrestling:

Costumed combatants wrestle in a pit of Jell-O to raise money and a Diva Hostess will run a live auction offering unique and one-of-a-kind items for bidding. FUN!

Möda Provŏcateūr:

The first Möda Provŏcateūr, held in 2004, was created by Kevin Casey from Avalon for Hair, Skin and Nails after he participated in ‘Crème de la Do’ in 2003, a fashion and style show organized by an agency in Albuquerque helping to raise funds for local HIV/AIDS agencies around the country. Since 2004, Möda Provŏcateūr has raised more than $141,000 in support of SAAF’s programs and services.

Festival for Life:

Over the years, SAAF Festival for Life has grownup and adjusted. The most attractive element continues to be the gathering of fine design on show within the live and silent auction. It’s not only art, the auction also offers vacations, gift baskets, gift certificates, celebrity collectibles, trips, one-of-a-kind experiences and paper prayers. Our community has come to love this nice chance to seek out beautiful works of art and nice gifts.

Bowling for Tommy:

A fundraiser benefiting the programs, services, and LGBTQ initiatives of the Southern Arizona AIDS Foundation (SAAF). Bowling for Tommy was first started in 2010 to honor the memory of Tommy Gin, a long time SAAF Board Member and Community Volunteer, who passed away in January 2010.
