Saturday was a day of chores—bathe the dog, laundry, vacuuming, etc. In the evening we joined the rest of the ATV gang for potluck and bean bag tossing. Emmi thought those bean bags made great chew toys—she was absolutely certain everyone was tossing those for her! The food was awesome as usual! Several of our gang are missing in action—Fred and Nancy are back in Oregon dealing with a very ill family member, Joe and Kathy are playing in California and Cathy has left Mike home alone at North Ranch while she is back home in Washington for a while. We miss them all!!
While I dealt with North Ranch HOA business this morning, the cowboy started a painting. By late afternoon he had created this:
The colors are much more vivid on the actual painting—I love it!! Geri told Michael about this artist, Jerry Yarnell who does a Saturday morning TV program. We accessed his website and purchased a couple of his CD’s and the cowboy has been learning! Yarnell has a wealth of information on his website and when we are back in Montana on unlimited GB’s Michael can watch more videos.
And then the “cowboy” arrived. Our friend Tom is a woodcarver, a very talented woodcarver. At the end of last season I asked him if he would carve a “cowboy” for me. Today the finished product arrived—Michael was delighted as was I. It looks so much like my cowboy and the detail is amazing!
Life is good!
