This is just an update with no disasters forthcoming.
All is well on the home front so far. Like half the West we worry about the fires and tolerate the smoke. Welcome to August!
I am including some photos of paintings from the past. On Friday while we were waiting for more company to arrive, my favorite librarian called to remind me to put some painting in the upcoming (tomorrow) Hunters Fair. I had forgotten all about it, so I quickly went into my laundry room which doubles as an art display room, and grabbed 4 paintings that were already matted and framed. Putting them in the car, I told Dale to entertain our company that was coming to go out on the boat and promised I’d be back shortly. Of course one doesn’t just drop off one’s artwork and run, there is a bunch of forms and tags to fill out and get receipts for the stuff. Finally, I got that all done and I went back home. Our company had arrived and we spent a nice day fishing and swimming.
The next day we all went up to the Fair and when I looked at the paintings, I saw I won both a Blue Ribbon (first) and a gold ribbon saying “Supertendent’s Choice” for my painting of the Wolf. And also I got a purple ribbon (second) with an additional gold ribbon saying “Judge’s Choice” for my Koi Kites. I can hardly hold up my big head.
So that’s it for now.
