My good eFriend, Kayla, aka Berryvox, has a passion for historical markers. It’s a cool passion! I found this marker at a rest stop along Hwy I-77 in southern Ohio on my way down to NC. This one is about blimps for god’s sake! It’s a crazy world!

From the day she was born, Kelly has added color to my life. Her playful creativity as a child is stuff of family legend. The ups and downs of her adolescence were painted with the joys and pains of life. She discovered some of her gifts, which include her intellect, athleticism and musicality. She has a view of the world that is special and unique. Her stories are Kellyesque. Her writing is spectacular. I wish she had a blog.
It was wonderful catching up with Kelly in AZ these past few days. I enjoyed meeting her manfriend, Jamen. As a father, it gives me great joy seeing her make the decisions that shape her life. A colorful life. Like the unfolding of a beautiful flower.
I skipped out of a “lunch with the professor” thing to have a “lunch with Gail” thing instead. Wouldn’t you?!
I used my iPhone Urbanspoon app to find Cowboy Ciao, and to make a lunch reservation online. And it lived up to it’s excellent reviews. Gail and I split pretty much everything. So we shared their signature specialties, the Stetson Chopped Salad, Mushroom Pan Fry, and a remarkably tasty Bread Pudding served with a 5-spice vanilla ice cream and cranberry compote. The bread pudding was my personal flavorite.
I promised more pics.
Gail and I are in AZ. We decided not to bring computers. I feel… disconnected!
So, sitting at the airport this morning waiting for our flight, I thought I’d check to see if a WordPress app was available for my iPhone, and… sure enough!!! Why am I so excited about this? I feel like a kid with a new toy!
(Don’t tell on me, but I’m posting during my conference. Shhh.)
Here’s a pic from inside our room at the FireSky in Scottsdale. I hope you can see our nice little view. More pics later.
