On another note, yesterday was "Road Trip" for me and two if my buddies, Joyce & Cinde. We went to Phoenix to soak up some warm temps, shop, eat too much, and attend the "Chihuly in the Garden" exhibit at the Desert Botanical Gardens:
Here is a sample of the Chihuly Glass Art on exhibit
Joyce, standing next to a giant Saguaro - she's a little over 5', so you can see how tall it is!
