Fall comes in from the West.

The light, the leaves, the chores........."everything must change".

I unload the groceries and consider covering the boat before it gets filled with leaves!

Big Weekend!

Retirement party and show at the Prichard for my mentor and friend, Bill Woolston.
First, Gallery Director Roger contemplates his party while my wife hob-nobs!

Our friends serve the drinks.........and Mark Hume (who designed and built our house) chats with my old professor George Wray.

And at the bottom, Bill shares stories with the Dean. Finally, former co-workers of mine from University days, Jenny Rod and Marty Fromm!

The Old Family Slide Collection

I've been scanning some of the old slide collection so we can see them again.
This one from a long, lazy afternoon ferrying our new driftwood dock over to the lake property from Kootenay. Diane is spitting seeds at the camera and I think Vickie is trying to retrieve some that have gotten into her suit! Around 1960.........! Those were really nice times!

Some interesting looking things and people here....and some of them very, very, very LOUD!

Renches............

They call her "Noni". I have no idea what language that is from.
Texas I guess.




































You can see where a lot of that "Rench Spunk" comes from!

Anybody home??
