Not only did the trip home 
from YouCan'tGetHereFromThere last forever,
it made us sick. 
A gnarly bug, incubated for those untold hours on the plane,
gave us weeks of explosive sneezing and rumbling coughs.

Just to prove anything at all is moving here,
we've finally gotten the garden in.  Mostly.
  I like to wait until it's at least 90 billion degrees out,
 don't you?

In other news... 
I have this sketch awaiting on a 2' canvas,
and though I've actually put some paint on the beast, 
I think I'll let 'er git along some before the unveiling.

Yeah, yeah.
 Both the garden and the painting will get done.

Oh no! Sorry about the bug! Glad you got the garden in. Can't wait for the dog painting.

It will all get done when it gets done.

I am quite confident you'll get it all done! I really enjoy the start of the dog--it's a work of art in and of itself. Sorry you've been sick and glad you are better!

It's too bad a trip to Ayuhland got you sick. But I am digging the canvas!

Carol, Celeste, Kevin, Page and Hallie---

Just when my bag seems too full of it to lift, y'all step up to help me carry it. To encourage me and humor me. And do I appreciate it? Why, yes I do!... 'Deed I do!
