It's November. Charlie was in the hospital last month with pneumonia. He was there for a week. Stopped smoking. Then he started smoking again. Needless to say I was not happy. I even threw things and broke them. I did not break my momma's red pyrex bowl.
Charlie's sister came to town for the weekend. Charlie took her to the Shreveport Fall Farmers' Market. I took her to the Highland Jazz and Blues Festival. She brought a nice bottle of wine from Baton Rouge and shared it with me and I taught her the delightful joys of boxed wine.
Katee and her new hair. She's becoming quite the star on my Youtube channel. How to make art and work and take care of family. These are my struggles. So maybe I make art out of my family. Multi-task? (Kathryn)
I'm feeling tender popped and in need of a soft red sweater to hug my life...
Found the words "tender popped" on some trash blowing in the streets of Highland the other day while out walking the dogs. Took this self portrait at Sam's Town Casino earlier this year.
Katee finished the semester last week. Yay! Has a three week break before a big schedule of working at computer labs at school this summer. We're working on getting an art business up and going. (Kathryn)
... of our family and found pictures that are of other people's families. There are even some society pictures from the Shreveport Times.
I continue to work on my creative space. Most recently, I gathered up the six old suitcases I've purchased over the years. After thoroughly scrubbing each one, I'm now deciding what to store in them. (Kathryn)
I like walking Eko in the Greenwood Cemetery. We don't go very often and I'm sure he hates it because I walk him in a stop and start manner because I take pictures and collect flutters of fabric flower petals. He likes to gooooo!
We found this so-dead-he-looks-mummified squirrel when we were there in February. I took lots of snaps and then picked him up with one of Eko's poop sacks (clean!) and drove him to Deb's house. It was the hardest thing I've ever done because he would have looked so wicked on my shelf next to my taxidermied alligator head.
