On their way to Tampa, Charlie and his girlfriend, Claire, are stopping by for the night to see us in El Paso. They are headed to a dance/theater workshop ( I think) for the next two weeks. We had the pleasure of meeting Claire on one of our trips to Tucson and think she's absolutely perfect for our Charlie. She has her own dance company and spent all of June performing in China (with Charlie, too) in 14 different cities. I'm looking forward to seeing all their pictures tonight! After stopping here they are headed to Austin and then New Orleans. At least they're starting their vacation in El Paso, because the town would be a quite a let down after a visit in those other cities.
Charlie, Tim, and I have been close friends since high school and he's one of the only people from Sahuaro we still keep in touch with. He was more or less our matchmaker and we were honored to have him sing at out wedding ceremony. He's the life of every party and brings us so much joy.
