Please, it is an absolutely important notice:

You must be absolutely careful with Jordi. He usually strangle (all) his Spanish clients once a year (at least).

I had been strangled, more or less, one hundred times.

Jordi is absolutely dangerous (or I?).

Just went out to check on my goats and I found one of them, Aragonite, had passed away. Not a very pleasant morning as I am terribly fond of my pets.
It seems that I have bad luck when I travel as far as losing pets. My helpers/home sitters get nervous when I go to Tucson as once I lost one of my dear pot belly pigs, Bessie and another time a wonderful parrot.

Ah well, life continues otherwise.....

Rosemary, it was great to see you. You are always smiling and full of life.

Carles, I made sure to buy some minerals from Jordi so he wouldn't strangle me. Although, there has been a time or two I wanted to strangle you too Carles! ha ha!
Luckily you were far away from me!

All in fun.

Fortunately for all of us he seems to be quite inefficient at doing that apparently ;-). But I'm saving your comment and will be sure to have some grapefruit juice nearby to mollify him next time we meet.

Gail, still thanks for sharing all your great photos with us. Let's hope you have some left for us to enjoy.

Christophe

PS: as Carles said, be careful with Jordi...

But... my strong octopus tentacles arrive very far away... (simply to take care of good minerals).

I have never seen such violence at the Tucson Show. Why is everyone hitting someone or strangling someone?
