Finally warmer weather.

A new development at the Big Tucson Gem Shows mentioned on my site, were all the tote carriers, like for air travel, that so many were suddenly using this year. Was it mass subconscious consideration about how to lug around rocks and a thousand strings of beads, or did someone somewhere suggest to take your wheeled suitcases with you to make it easy?
