Hal, so interesting to read your post about the art shows. What a wonderful response to the person who wanted to commission a portrait of her dog. Very tactful and leaves the situation open to a happy resolution.

Hi to all -  Doc liked Grumpy Cat but had to be educated - - said he'd rather s face punch than Facebook  --  said "I tried it.  Didn't like it!"  He excelled at Grumpy Cat lesson #1.  On oxygen since Friday, so I have actually been able to breathe and cough at the same time - it's hard to remember being able to breathe. Doc declares my lungs much clearer - go back for another follow up on Thursday. 

I'm not driving until I can get off the oxygen - I'm sure I'd get tangled up somehow.  At my stage of Advanced Chronological Enhancement  (ACE, of course) one can't be too careful.  Oh, wait - there are my sunglasses - they aren't supposed to be there - well, I think I'll just grab a cold drink on the way by the fridge - but we don't have a bird, do we? - what  was I talking about?  Who are you?  Hi, I am Holly - haven't we met before.  Is that a donut on the floor???  Whew - where was I??  Did I float off again?

I'm having trouble getting my mind working - did you notice? 

Geri, fortunate that your monetary loss was not great and that you are all safe and sound.  I think I fear house fire more than anything.

Did I read someone's post wishing Marsha a 'Get Well Quick ' or did I dream that.  I'm so far behind that I am just overwhelmed.  Can someone update me?  Is she ill in the middle of my pity-party?  I feel so blessed to be supported both artistically and in friendship by all of you.

WooHoo - - MORE NEW PARTICIPANTS!!  It is so exciting to see new names and faces  (even if they do think that I am new - -guess that's what happens when one falls into hole and forgets to climb out!)

Oh, Jen - your back just does not cooperate all the time, huh.  That's not fun and pain meds are a blessing! Hope your back is better soon.

I feel like we have gotten to watch The Curly One grow up - ring side seat!   I think the first pastel I saw that you did, he was about toddler age and trying to climb up to the table top with a ladder improvised from the bottom drawer.  Made me smile then and makes me smile to remember it.

Sammy - have you gotten yourself on an even keel with the A-fib meds?  I think George went through 2 before they found the right match.

HAL - exactly the right answer to the lady about commissioning her dog's portrait.  I probably would have been silly enough to say Id' love to, give her a price and then beat my head against the wall.  This way is win-win - - the best there is.

I haven't resized the sketches I did in Louisiana - but maybe I can get them up in a while before I fall back into a medicated stupor. If so, then tomorrow.

OK - someone else's turn now - - I've overstayed my welcome.  And it thunder booming outside.  I may have to unplug my computer.  I moved it to the bedroom over the weekend and it's not on a good surge protector as on my desk.

Hi Holly, gosh we are all falling apart lately what with Marsha and now you with pneumonia and my back being at best " fragile" . I had an attack like that last year where I couldn't breath and my daughter recognized what was happening to me over the phone and told Howard to get me to a doctor immediately. Her husband has asthma. I nearly collapsed and probably would have if not for her. It can happen fast. Take care of yourself. I am a bit worried about making it around the airport on Sunday as my back is not making a quick recovery. Good health to all of you!

Jen C & C's always welcome

Jen, you may already know about this, but if you call the airline ahead of your flight, they will arrange for a person to take you in a wheelchair from the terminal entrance to the plane and vice versa at the other end. I was temporarily incapacitated one time when I had to travel for business and couldn't walk the long distances, and it was a lifesaver ...
