I am mostly happy about getting to visit with our friend Sid. He is a pretty incredible human being who I have missed more than most everyone in Tucson. We met Sid by being regulars to his little shop at the swap meet. He has all kinds of amazing treasures, jewelry making tools and oddities. For some reason, he took to us and we took to him. It was a weekly treat to visit Sid at his booth while we lived in Tucson.
This last visit, I picked out the incredible ring in the photo above. I can't remember what kind of stone it is, but it reminds me of a paint by number sunset and I love it. Sid also gave me a beautiful necklace his wife, Fawn, made in the 70s. Doug left with a silver and Turquoise ring that Sid made many years ago, and a jar full of Turquoise bits for marquetry. We got to visit with him and his daughter, and leave with treasures, as always. If you visit the Tohono O'Odham swap meet, be sure to find Sid's booth, it's the one with the school bus!

Our favorite lunch after the swap meet in Tucson is Guilin on Speedway and Country Club. It's healthy Chinese food, and just about everything on the menu can be made vegetarian or vegan. I always get Mongolian Beef, but you know, I am a creature of habit.
Hope you're enjoying the guest posts so far. There are still a few left. We are currently in a little hotel in Houston for the night. We are both itching to get back to work. So much to do! But don't worry, if you have a pending order, it will be in the mail early next week!
