As usual, tons of stuff going on and plenty more to come. I might catch a break in January. Whew. I have nothing to show you tonight except for a youtube video Jay Sr. sent to me. Rick Miller....what a talent. Enjoy it.
The other thing I need to do is invite you to my next exhibit. Here's the info--
Where: Gryphon Cafe', 105 W. Lancaster Ave., Wayne, PA 19087, 610.964.1988
When: First Friday, November 7th, 5-8pm.
This will be a very casual event, please bring the kids and anyone else you'd care to invite. We're working on having some live music. There will be finger foods, beer and wine and the menu that the cafe' serves--hot and cold drinks and desserts. I would be so thrilled to see you there.
So that's the main reason I haven't been posting. I'm painting like crazy, but I'm not going to let you see any of them just yet. In addition, there's been the myriad of medical tests, with the next two being nuclear stress tests coming up on Tuesday and Thursday. Then there are the injuries I constantly inflict on myself now that I'm fiftyfine, and, as my doctor told me, "wearing out". The nerve of him! He's the shoulder doctor. I got the MRI results and I tore the tendons on my bicep, rotator cuff, and the one down my back by my shoulder blade that I can't remember the name of, which also leaves me with fluid on my shoulder, tendonitis and bursitis. I'm a mess! Actually I'm feeling much better since he gave me a shot in the back of my shoulder. When I saw the needle I cried like a little girl. The doctor got pretty annoyed with me, so I took the shot and wow, the pain was gone in ten minutes. I'm supposed to be going for physical therapy, but they can't fit me in at the rehab. Everyone else must be wearing out too. The neck MRI was excellent. My lymph nodes are fine. TYG! I still haven't been able to catch that raccoon, but I don't think he's been coming around anymore. I just keep the traps ready for him. Two of my Cuckoo Marans pullets have started laying eggs. Their eggs are small and not real dark, but dark enough to qualify as Marans eggs. Very exciting. My nephew Pat and his fiance' Jessica were married on October 4th. Wonderful, lovely wedding. Happy Marriage Kids! Last Sunday we celebrated Derek and Pat's birthdays. Happy Birthday Guys. I made the braciola and fusilis. Pat and Jess brought the salad, the boys got the bread and wine and Jeanie made the desserts. Dark and white chocolate bread pudding with a brandy sauce and a grape cheesecake.BTW, she made a chocolate, caramel, fleur de sel cake for me for my birthday. Really, really delicious.
That reminds me, I made a mistake on the 24th of September. My sister Amy's birthday is not on the 24th, it's the 25th. Sorry Amy, duh. That's it for tonight. I'm going to paint some more and then go up and watch Saturday Night Live with Jay. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
