Saturday Morning Report

Yesterday was spent sightseeing in the morning, and Sandra had adventures while I was at a meeting.

1. Tour of South Mountain. Great views from a volcanic massif. Talked to a ranger and learned a lot about the area from her. She was there to keep people from selling stuff to tourists. It was Cesar Chavez day & schools were out.
2. Sandra had a 35% profit at the Gila River Community casino
3. Seeing a lot of old acquaintances at the vendor preview at the conference.
4. Good food

1. Meeting. I hate meetings
2. Call from our house&horsewatcher. With the tornado reported nearby, any call was a worry. As it turns out, no real damage.

Small World Department:
1. Thursday night, our waiter attended CMSU in Warrensburg for a year; he's from Drexel MO south of KC.
2. Friday noon, we ate a quick bufffet at the casino mentioned above, run by the Pima & Maricopa Indians. I had to run early to get to my meeting and left Sandra to pay the bill (& play). She got into a conversation with the waitress, who turned out to be Navajo from the Canyon de Chelly area. Sandra mentioned a stop at a trading post last year, in Lukachukai. The waitress did a double-take and said "My parents own that trading post."

1. The B&B Association meeting was better focused than the one in Providence.

Today: Meet Lois (Su Casa B&B, KC) and go to the Heard Museum here. Then, it's off to the conference for the afternoon session. This evening, will meet other B&B folks for another SW/Mexican dinner.
