Why is the Lovely Sharon in Palm Desert?

Utah people often ask me why the Lovely Sharon spends so  much time in Palm Desert.  They ask me "What does she do there all winter"?  I have been asked that question dozens of time but I am still surprised when I get asked the question.  Let me explain the reason through photos. There is no editorial comment, just photos.   All of the photos of my Utah existence were taken this morning, Sunday March 27, 2011.  The Palm Desert photos were taken over the last several weeks.
