    Joel, love the drift wood fish! this is uncanny. our irrigation ditches are flowing here in our open space fields . . . also the where Adán and I walk home from his school. He collections cottonwood twigs to toss in the ditches and runs after them as the float away. I will share the drift wood fish with him. By the way he is still talking about the fact that your autographed Lori's cd for him!!! cheers
