Hello everybody,

I just stopped by to let you know I am NOT in hibernation, although the temperature is Spencer, Iowa today would encourage that pastime. We are settled at a balmy 1 degree, and that's with the sun shining! Ollie and I tried to go for a run yesterday. Ten year old Golden Retrievers are only good to about 1o degrees, I've discovered. We only got about three blocks before his legs cramped and we had to mince our way back home. sigh (summer's coming, summer's coming)

On the painting front, if you want to bop over to my project blog, that will tell you the whole story, with photos, no less. In a nutshell, I spent the whole week on a canvas that last night was removed from the stretcher and put in the trash. Sorry, but sometimes these things happen. When your thinking and brush work in tandem, and one of them gets muddled---well, there you are. At any rate, the junior and I are flying to Longmont, via Denver this afternoon. We have not been to Brian and Lynn's (eldest son and daughterinlaw) for too long. Today is the day, but the bad news is Wayne can't go. I will take him out there this summer:)

Later, Cooper

What, you couldn't go somewhere WARM. Maybe Brian and Lynne would you in Dallas...or Miami.

How many blogs have you got, girl? I think there's a writing in you trying to get out. Let me know.
