It was a privilege to be at the American Farm Bureau Federation annual convention in Phoenix. It is fun as a "small-town country boy" to travel to a large city. I just look at all the large buildings and think, isn't it amazing that structures like this can be built. The Phoenix Convention center had a north wing and a south wing. Both were one square block. Each had four levels, three above ground and one below.

About one block from our hotel there were two more impressive buildings. The Talking Stick Resort fieldhouse is where the Phoenix Suns Professional basketball team plays. Next to the Talking Stick Resort fieldhouse is Chase Field where the Arizona Diamondbacks baseball team plays. Monday afternoon walking back to the hotel I noticed a lot of activity around the Talking Stick Resort fieldhouse. As I walked by, someone came up to me and asked if I was looking for tickets. The Phoenix Suns had a game that evening. No, I did not go to the game as it had been a busy day. Besides, I would have had to pay for the ticket!
