Senor Azul was thrilled when he heard he would be visiting Cindy Gillett's studio in Idaho during January. It was a perfect time to explore Boise's local ski resort Bogus Basin.
The snow year was a bit late...but Senor Azul did a snow dance on the airplane, working his rooster magic. In fact, as Señor Azul, TC and Hen were unpacking, six inches of fresh new snow fell on the mountain. Whew, just in time!!!
He tried to convince TC and Hen that his idea was the best...but they were more interested in picking out the soft pastel colors to be used for their portraits. They were secretly hoping they'd spend their time sitting by a warm and cozy fireplace sipping hot cocoa instead.
Being kind hearted, TC and Hen gave in. In fact, Hen thought she might try out snowboarding while TC and Senor Azul stuck to traditional downhill skis.
Senor Azul was so excited on the chairlift he crowed all the way to the top of the mountain. While TC was somewhat amused, Hen was simply petrified and kept peering over the edge of the chairlift, sure her little chicks would meet an untimely demise.

All in all, TC and Friends had a terrific time skiing in Idaho and yes, afterwards they all sat by the studio fireplace sipping their much needed hot cocoa.
