Thanks for the usual stellar reporting from the Tucson show. Alas, I couldn't make it this year because of work commitments and am very sad not to be there. It is such a shot in the arm during the winter doldrums. Keep up the good work!

We miss you Brooks!

Well, Jim is safely off to the airport and heading home and I am going to sit in, order room service and load photos to catch up on my days! I was supposed to at a couple of events tonight, but would like to rest, load photos and add some fun text. The Westward Look show is over and it has been really fun watching people carrying flats, or boxes, off to new homes. I talked with a number of people who got great treasures. Some expensive, some inexpensive..doesn't matter, it's all about adding new treasures to the collections. What fun!
