1st day of Spring?

Cold, cold, cold here on this first day of spring? I noticed a little green today, my snowdrops are peaking through no flowers yet-but there is the promise of flowers...

Art on the Lake in Curtis, MI

We have been invited to once again, participate in Art on the Lake at Curtis, Michigan this coming Memorial Day weekend. This will be our 2nd time there! We had a great show last year--the weather cooperated nicely and we spent a fun filled and profitable day in the sun enjoying other artists, great food, a really good band and for the grand finale a renaissance parade complete with my favorite----Bagpipes!

The men in my life...

This photo was taken last year at Fayette State Park in the U.P.

On Golden Pond

There is something about Dave Grusin's artistry that captivates me...He is an incredible pianist.

A quote from on On Golden Pond---

Ethel: Don't you think that everyone looks back on their childhood with a certain amount of bitterness and regret about something? Your a big girl now. Aren't you tired of it all? Bore. Bore. It doesn't have to ruin your life, darling. Life marches by, Chels. I suggest you get on with it.
