Kerschbaum Discovers Sandoli in Arizona

After his annual visit to Southern California, John Kerschbaum began his drive back to Minnesota. While passing through Arizona, he stopped in Scottsdale to have a look at North America's only all-sandolo operation.
Walking the property of the Hyatt resort at Gainey Ranch, John found the boats and the dock they operate out of, but it was early in the day and they weren't open yet.

He was impressed with the clean look of the facility and with how well the boats were buttoned up, but secretly hoping that someone would be there so he could finagle his way onto a boat. Wouldn't you?

Thanks for the photos John.
I've got to get out there and see those sandoli.

I had a similar experience at that location except that I was able to return in the evening. I wanted to chat with some fellow gondoliers at a nice location.
I returned, excited, walked to the water, looked out and saw them.... sitting in chairs. For me it was a hard pill to swallow. In being clever they miss the mark.

The Lord is the cause of such problems! Originally nobody was allowed to sit down, but him and the angels all stood guard around the throne.

The He created man and so had to task an angel named Metatron to keep track of all mankind's deeds, especially those of the chosen people.

Metatron had to sit to jot down that much easily. Adam looked up, saw that and decided if his scribe can sit, he can too and the couch potato was born.

In a few centuries we won't have any legs left! (I like to walk, but I sit way too much!)

Dude, I love you like a brother Tamas, but you are "buttercowing" big-time right now.
