Chairman Bao is a Shih Tzu. We travel a lot. I drive. He watches. We've logged at least 10,000 miles and he's never once said, Sweetheart, don't you think you should stop and ask someone?

This is what our booth at the Trade Show looked like. Actually, doing a Trade Show was a bit like having a baby -- an interesting experience, but not one I'd want to repeat. You stand there and smile. And smile and smile and smile, whether anyone smiles back, or not. Disapppointingly, there weren't nearly as many people as the organizers had promised. Par for the course, I was told by other exhibitors. Ah, well. You live and learn.
We took a different route home from Denver, through Durango and Flagstaff. It's beautiful country, especially in Colorado. The leaves are changing, and some of the vistas were truly spectacular. You don't see anything like this in Australia. I sometimes think Americans don't realize how very beautiful this country is!
So it was delightfully scenic, but it was also slow -- mostly two-lane highways (one lane each way) and a lot of roadwork. Six hours of driving for each of the first two days, four hours yesterday. I really must teach Bao how to drive!
Back home in Tucson, our so-called monsoon has ended. We got a grand total of three inches of rain. I'm thinking that instead of calling it The Monsoon, they should dub this annual non-event, The Dribble.
