Albuquerque Show

Back for a day! Just another turn around trip. Heading for Indianapolis later this week.
We had a great time in New Mexico. We hit all the high spots in the state making a giant loop. Spending our first night in Flagstaff waiting out a bit of snow Elaine shoveled out the truck bed on day 2 so we could get the trunks back in.
The next day we got into Albuquerque shopped a bit at the Magnolia gallery and headed over to Rhonda's for Elaines shrine pin class.Rhonda's store was great a huge classroom, lovely people! We had a wonderful time Thursday and Friday!

Back in the desert for a few days till CHA.
My dad likes to play with rocks so here is his latest cairn and
one of my brothers got a couple of new puppies so I thought I show a picture of each.They are pretty cute, eh?
The demo at Saltwater went very well. If you get a chance to check it (Saltwater)out do! Downtown Fullerton is a great place to shop.
This week before I head over to CHA I hope to check out a few of the galleries here in Joshua Tree including Art Queen. 29 palms and Joshua Tree are home to many murals as well as galleries as well as a few good thrift and antique stores. This time of year the weather is usually great except for the occasional sand storm or flash floods, HA, we have had both this past week!
