After our great evening with the Foster's in Tucson, we decided to stay over again so that I could visit my friend and mentor, Sam Patania. Some of you know that last winter I was lucky enough to work as an apprentice for Sam, who is a third generation jeweler here in Tucson. His grandfather opened the Thunderbird Trading Company in Sante Fe, New Mexico. Sam and his father and grandfather are remarkable jewelers and their work can be seen in many galleries across the US. Sam is the proud father of two beautiful children with a new baby on the way with Brenna, love of his life! Congrats Sam and Brenna! I'll be working again with Sam come January through March in 2011! We'll be planning the Orchid dinner to coincide with the upcoming Gem Show in February. Sam also gave me a beautiful gift during my visit, a fish bracelet that I've admired for some time. I am so very blessed to have such good friends. I also have another beautiful coral bracelet that Sam created and is for sale to some lucky lady, just ask me and I'd be happy to show you. In fact I'll add pictures of both bracelets here soon. Thanks Sam and see you soon! So.. now let me introduce you to "Club LC". Steve calls the bus, the LARGE CAR (LC). And as many of you know, Steve is into keeping fit and healthy and likes to work out EVERYWHERE. So here are pictures of our push up session in the kitchen part of the bus or LC. Check out those shoulders! And then of course there is "resting" after all those push ups!

Overnight at the Voyager in Tucson, visit with dear friend Kathy. till tomorrow.....
