My brother was an art major at Texas Tech. My dad was quite a good artist. Don't know if you've heard of a west Texas artist named Kenneth Wyatt, but he is well known in these parts.His daughter, Jill, is a great artist in her own right and my sister's best friend. (They graduated hs together.) Ruth (my sister) and Jill used to work a lot of Ken's shows when they were in hs ... which is how Ruth met the actor Ken Curtis, who played Festus on Gunsmoke. He was a collector of Kenneth's art and went along on some of Kenneth's shows.

We also have a friend in Santa Fe who is an artist and photographer.

Kate has a lot of artistic talent and passed it on to her younger son Mark, who is an architect in Austin. I wish he painted more. He's really talented.

Me? Naw, I didn't inherit the ability to draw paint or sculpt. My brother got all that! I guess I inherited the musical genes. Our dad was an incredible talent in art, music and creative writing. I can only WISH I was half as talented.

More than you needed to know!

We look forward to sering you at CL in April!

Melanie

Lists? Oh yeah! Big time! Only I never put them into Excel, which seems a great idea, and one which I plan to steal. (Tx, Di!)

Back in my TT days as a single mom, the short list for leaving was taped up right over the door almost at eye level so I wouldn't forget to check it. That kept me from driving off with the electric cord still plugged in and other such smart moves.

As to art ability, take some time with Diane if she's teaching. You will amaze yourself. Di is a good teacher as well as a talented painter. Not all artists can do both.

Besides that, look up Zentangle online and give that a try. It's art for people who can't draw, they say, and it's really true. Remind me to tell you my friend's story. I gave her a card I did with Zentangles on it and then showed her how to get started.

Cheers!
Sue

Brilliant! Let's do it! I can foresee bidding wars and all. Everybody has a good time no matter what -- win, lose, or draw.

Tina, you know you only have to turn your back for a few seconds to get well behind. We all need speed reading skills!

Aside from the rain, how are things with you?

Barring any disasters (touch wood, where's my rabbit foot?) we are leaving Sunday a.m. for points south for 3 weeks.Stops en route are Port Huron, MI, Georgetown, KY, Marietta, GA and then St. Augustine, FL for 3 nights, a week in Ft. Myers at Seminole Campground where we are staying in a rented RV and then 2 nights in Cedar Key on the way back. This is a slightly shortened version of the trip we were supposed to do last January before our daughter suddenly developed epilepsy. She is doing well right now and lots of backup systems are in place! I think it is too early to find you and Martin in Naples? After this "exploratory" trip we should know if we want to take the trailer down next fall in 2015 and store it for part of the winter, for a more extended stay later in winter. Wouldn't be able to head home until mid April because of snow up here. Wish we could stay for months, but family issues prevent right now.

Wow... I had visions of the MOHO hooked up to the truck which had the motorcycle riding in the bed, which then was hooked up to the jeep....
this looks manageable, just don't make any sharp turns or you might squish your bike! You are smart to get all your ducks ...errr... toys.... in a row!

That sounds like a good reccy trip. Where in Cedar Key will you stay, right on the island or nearby? I was looking at that the other day and saw some lovely campgrounds, some over on the Suwannee River.

I will PM you right now about a possible mini-c, but it won't be in Naples, not this year anyway.


Cheers!
Sue

X2 Tina - I also recall mention of you possibly joining us @ CL in April via Cabin - Cottage or Yurt. Note the yurts have no bathroom but are located next to the group Pavillion / showers / restrooms. Yurts are more convienient to the Pavillion and RV spots but it isn't a huge park. But it is a nice one. I wish I hade more pictures of the place. We would love to have ya join us.

Dwayne, my jeeps both say tow four down or on a trailer. Something about the transfer case getting discombobulated or something if one axle turns while the other is stationary. Maybe look on line as I'd hate to see such a nice looking unit join the paperweight category.

Hey I could be wrong but I have to pass on what my book says.
