A Sad Day

I'm feeling so many emotions today that make it hard to write.... yet I need to.  I don't have a painting to go with it... except maybe these two....

The house he grew up in was the same one I grew up in... and today the new owners tore it down.
He was an only so it was easy for him to keep it and raise us there.  But there were three of us, his children and only one still lived there.  Only one could have saved it, but she chose not to try.  And she blames the other two of us for selling it.  Today I'm not liking her very much but I'm sure I will get past it.

Merry Christmas

Wow, where did the time go?  Are the rest of you ready for Christmas?  I'm not but it will be here anyway won't it.  So why am I not ready?  I have no idea, I can only account for a few days wasted and those weren't a waste; time spent with my Tuesday Painters group is never a waste and here are three sketches I did with them recently.

I also spent some time with my brother's family in Mt. Pleasant where his daughter got her Masters In Public Administration.  Very proud of her determination to get this done. 

And, the annual Gingerbread House with my grandson.  He knows I'm not the best baker so he has preferred that we buy the kit.  However, now that he's done some baking he thinks maybe with his help I'll be able to do it okay next year.

Merry Christmas and a Joy Filled 2020 to all of you!
