Recent events

We've had an unexpected illness and death in our family and I've been, and will continue to be, out of the loop for a while. First Tuesday (the 4th) and Third Friday (the 21st) are on for March. It'll be good to see some folks. Take care.

Is it really February?

Well, yes. It is.

So - packing tape shoes led to packing tape other stuff...most recently brassieres formed on an old mannequin torso that lives in the studio and gets dressed up for holidays. So maybe this year she'll just have holiday lingerie. And now I'm thinking of Myra Breckinridge. Damn!

This is going to be a short post; last night I encountered the seamy side of my lovely Christmas present from Gordon. Suffice to say that the cabbage wasn't the only thing effortlessly sliced in pursuit of dinner. It's not that bad, no professional attention needed, but my queasy side just knows that if I move my left hand too much my whole arm will fall off and then I won't be able to drive myself to the studio tomorrow. And tomorrow is First Tuesday, the Valentine Edition. Can't miss that. Unfortunately I have a million things I wanted to do today. Oh well.

My mom renewed my zoo membership for my birthday again! The price of admission has gotten pretty high; now I have to go only three times in a year to make it worthwhile. I love feeling free to go there for just a few minutes, say hi to the grizzlies and then walk home again. And maybe I'll do that right now.
