Whew!  We made it to Arizona.  The last day of driving was long and snowy.  We drove from Santa Fe into Scottsdale.  Leo is a road warrior.  He rode across the country with very few complaints.  One the way to Santa Fe, I had to visit a Taos church.  It is about 200 years old, plus or minus.  Georgia O’Keefe depicted it as an abstraction.

I hoped LewAllen and LewAllen Jewelry was open on Sunday.  But, no.  Their store being closed, saved me some money. I can’t resist Laura’s handmade charms. I did find a hat shop for my friend Tony.

On Monday, we visited Xanadu Gallery in Scottsdale.  We wore masks and gloves.  It was quiet on the streets.  Sadly, I saw lots of empty store fronts.  I think Covid has been hard on Scottsdale retail businesses.  Xanadu is one business that I always visit.  They have a nice selection of wall art, glass, and sculpture.

Leo couldn’t help himself.  He asked to have his picture taken next to this puppy.  Who is cuter?

I am thinking that I should create large buildings when I return that are thin enough that light would glow through the porcelain.

Take good care, C2.
