A.R.T.; Artisans Road Trip; (inquiring minds want to know:)

Good morning!

What a beeyoutiful day! A few weeks ago I whined about the office makeover, but today I am really reaping the benefits. Overhauling the office made it possible to turn the desk that the computer sits on, and I am currently alternately typing and looking out the windows at lovely colored trees tossing in the breeze. Sounds like the subject of a poem, eh?

A.R.T., northwest Iowa artisans road trip, coming up next weekend, so how about I just give you a copy of the press release? [Sheesh, I knew being on the publicity committee was a great (?) job, but this is a true bonus.]

For Immediate Release

Hi. I spend all day today in Vermillion SD seeing Katy's sorority house.
I know I can't come next Saturday but I wonder if Roberta would come with me on Sunday.
Do you have a big crowd? Would you be able to visit?
I'd love to see your person.

Good grief, maybe you can call it Brent's graduation and just be done with it.
You don't have to feed them do you?
Will they buy paintings? Or is the purpose of this not to sell, but to demonstrate your art? Are you supposed to be painting for them to watch?

P.S Don't answer any of those question, woman. You've got 200 people dropping by this weekend. You don't have time to write on this blog!!!!!!!!!!
