Peoria is tucked away between Phoenix and Lake Pleasant and surrounded by rugged cactus and the Sonoran desert's breathtaking mountains.

True story. Early one morning as my wife was signing-in at a corporate golf tournament, a charming and magnetic man sidled up to her and, with a playful twinkle in his eyes, he smiled mischievously and told her that he loved her. Turns out, that man was Walter Gretzky. This was just another notch in my long (and partially true) history with the Gretzky family.
