Here we come, Tucson!

It's been a long time since I have been able to just leave town and spend time away.  Now, I have Pat Scholz, who can house sit and take care of my animals (dogs and birds) and give me peace of mind.  My friend, Abdul, asked me if I would like to work the Tucson Gem and Bead show with him.  I jumped at the chance!  I've been wanting to see it for years!

So, we drove and drove and drove.  It took 3 days, going through territory that I had not seen before...

It's amazing to me how so much land is still uninhabited.  You can film cowboy movies here and it looks like the Old West.  Someone described the landscape as "Kitty Litter Decor" and I have to say I agree....  Where have all the good trees gone?

Big open skies, vast landscapes, an Indian restaurant in the middle of nowhere, roadside crosses where people lost their lives...............  Very different from Kentucky!

We are here and have set up.  More on the show very soon!

  1. Hope you have a nice time in Tucson. I'm originally from there and the gem show brings a lot of great business to the town ... plus it offers a lot of goodies to see and buy.
