Where in the world is COSMO?

Have you been watching the updates on Cosmo's travels?  He has been a busy little guy.  He was hanging out with all the designers and manufacturers at the show. We were able to do Facebook updates, but had a little trouble with the blogger account while we were in Chicago, so I will do some photo updates when I get more uploaded to the host account.  Meanwhile, stay tuned to Facebook (watch the link to the right) and see where he was.
