Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night…

“…stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”

Here’s a clue to what the R&T BeadTour crew willingly goes through, to bring beads to your town!

Yesterday’s bead show in Denver was up against a major snowstorm.  Our bead-truck driver and road crew, coming from Omaha, squeaked in ahead of the blizzard.

2 of us flying in from Spokane had a rougher time, though…

√ Delayed in Spokane

√ Unexpected plane change in SLC

√ Lightning strike on their plane over Denver

√ Baggage unloaded and left on the tarmac (as the handlers were called in to avoid lightning), so baggage was soaked

√ Rental car couldn’t drive in the blizzard so they had to upgrade to a 4 wheel drive

√  They finally arrived at the hotel at 9 pm instead of the 4:30 they expected!

On the bright side, we safely unloaded the beads through the snow, and had a great Denver show…
