Another Highlight Of My Colorado Vacation

I got to take a little side trip to the Lipstick Ranch Studio of KC Willis. It's in a beautiful little town that is just as quaint as KC's Studio.

Just look at this cute victorian house!

This is one of her fanstastic collages that greet you at the front door.

And here is KC and her side kick Fiona.

KC working away at her sewing machine.

The piece that just had to come home with us. Her husband Logan makes all of her frames. He's quite the talented guy!

Alot of you know that I took KC's online Collage Camp class. It was well worth taking and visiting her in person was the icing on the cake. What a doll! I highly recommend her classes as well as a visit to her studio. And she is doing retreat classes at her studio now as well as online classes. I hope that Judy and I get to take a road trip to Colorado for a class in her studio next year!

A few more days with the kids and grandkids. What a great time we have had. School, karate, guitar, batting cages, miniature golf, playing bingo ( 1953 Bingo, nothing electronic) every evening after dinner. We've chopped wood, had some snow, big fires in the fireplace, and great meals. What more could you ask for? Pictures soon!

If You Love Horses Like I Do...

Check out this web site. . These horses are magnificent. They are in danger, and if I could save just one I would.

I have been reading this web site for a while now. These wild horses need to be saved.

Just look at these pictures and tell me it doesn't break your heart.

Why Is It???

I have done this before. I have made funeral arrangements. I have made a few trips to the Mortuary to sign papers, deliver papers, pick out urns and every time I walk in to this Mortuary I feel like they are going to walk Myrna out from a room and tell me to take her home. It's not wishful thinking, trust me, I know she is in a better place. Maybe it's because when you walk in you are surrounded by doors that everyone is behind. Kind of an odd arrangement if you ask me. That's it, it's the floor plan that bothers me. Yup, that's it! Too many doors bother me.

The Journey Is Over...

Dear Aunt Myrna passed away early this morning. It was peaceful and really a blessing. No one should have to live with the pain that she did. Granted, it was her choice, but still no way to live.

In My Mind This Is Where I Am...

In reality, this is where I am...

Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It's the transistion that's troublesome. Isaac Asmiov

It's been quite the journey with Dear Aunt Myrna (DAM). And, who knows, she could stay in transistion for a long time. That is what is troublesome. It's not where anyone should be.
I'll keep you posted.
