New things from Linda Abbot, former resident of YV, knows the Merry boy who climbed this first.

It's early days, you may still have a chance at it. It was just hung yesterday in the window to show with two others of hers.

It's "Early" and it's $900 or $90/mo. rent.

You might like to hang it thus.
But probably not at this price.

When out walking on a tour of town yesterday I went into see Miss Ann at the Merced Montessori School. Bevin, my daughter, attended there and then went to her mom's to K-thru-the-rest.

I had been thinking of going in there for years, in fact, and I found her in, she had a brief moment, and I told her of her student's success as a female lawyer, etc. Bragging is good if it makes each of us feel good about the person of whom we are speaking.

Miss Ann has a grip like a teacher!

I also took time, since I was in the neighborhood, to knock on Dudley's door. He and Boomer played golf every Wednesday afternoon with two other of their friends for decades. He was a lawyer, and he handled the affair of my lost thumb in the sixties.

He had a fall recently, went into rehab, and just got out. He sat and listened to my adventures a bit, then we discussed a matter, with me explaining how I needed his good advice as Dad's old buddy, a thinker, a planner. He was only to happy to comply. It felt good to be able to look at him and recall our own times together on golf courses and in Wawona, especially, where my late wife and I spent our honeymoon in 2990.

It's good to visit older folks, even just a few minutes gets you into the Age of Before and you think how you never knew till you heard the guy spiel...

Those wee the high lights of the day, for me. I hope it was the same for Miss Ann and for Dudley.

I blame Art for freeing me to do things not conventional, not the norm, not the quotidian. I'm no Pollock, but it's a crazy world, and to try to make sense of it, a sense of continuity is sometimes more needed than outrageeous nouveau chic of the month. Dudley has some nice work at his place in Wawona. I wanna go there to see it and judge it again after all that time away.

hey there, say, mouse... wow, this is an absolutely abSOULutly wonderful
post! yes, the older folks and their 'art of learned skills' ALONG with their art, is to be treasured by us!

art and artwork, does that to us... it helps us to SEE more beauty than many folks ever get to realize is 'hiding completely insight' ...

:)

turning see that WE SEE into neat art, is so fun, yet--we DO have to 'see' it first, or: we could pass it by...

passing it by, means, we lose the live art of it...
and we lose the 'new staged-in-paint' art of it, later, as well...

thanks for inspiring us!!!

hey there say, tobia! ... say, i was all ready to mail them today, and well:

i decided to add a tad of dark to bamboozal's face, so he'd look more like him... and i did one of my 'best tricks':

i ruined the face... i been here about SIX hours now and have not fixed it...
so, will have to stay up all night and fix it...

if it is not freezing, i will mail THEM BOTH tomorrow...

sorry--i am very very famous in my house, here, for ruining everything i touch... :)
but--alas, i HAVE to, or i do not get the likeness ... i should settled for less, but i that i not good for portraits...

i am very thankful, though, that i did not have to 'touch up your mom', or
she would be in 'ruined limbo' too, for a few days, :))


it will be okay, before i send it, though, not to worry...
:)

i reckon i should have left it alone... but who'd have thought, ONE tiny DAB would have ruined it... :))

hey there say, all...


this one is NOT done, i need to DO the rail, but,
i've waited sooooooo LONG to get to this and get done, i just
want to 'help myself' feel encouraged, :))

the photo was another 'not very good one and very tiny' :)
but i love the sentiments and love in it...
and WANTED to see it painted...
plus, wanted to make it a surprise gift...

it is A RENEWAL of vows, and the really neat gal is pregnant and her
really neat husband is a really neat guy!
they were italy... :)

i could not find a clear photo of the buildings so they look a
bit 'like a fakey backdrop' :)...but in this case, that's okay,
folks can keep couple more in mind, i reckon...


will put the finished one up, when i DO the highlights on this rail......

THIS one, is for mouse's neice (i reckon i ruined the surprise)
... but it will be a surprise, for her, though...
there is something special about having uncles...
i never got to have places to go with my uncles, or even
see them... hope it will be a precious memory of that day:
i think? he said that they went climbing...

am going to send it this week (in case mouse, you are here--so you will know it is on the way, soon)...
