  • Brother home, back from Texas and didn't get in show

    PHEW!!! Another crazy week. My brother came home last Wednesday. He's much better. Fluid is mostly gone from around his heart,he had 2 stints put in and still has some blockage. He can go to work when he can walk the 3 1/2 blocks from the parking lot to his office without getting winded. He told me last night this is harder than he imagined it would. Open heart surgery on hold right now depending on future tests in 6 weeks.

    We got back from Texas Tues night visiting the grandkids. They are getting so big I can't believe it. The picture shows Chris the youngest, Samantha and Ben, the oldest. That's me and hubby with them somewhere in the Alamo.

    Got a letter today saying they loved my work but had 4 woodworkers and didn't want to add another but would contact me if one backed out. Oh well, Leaves that date open for another show!!

    Happy to hear about the heart condition being on the mend sad to hear you were not accepted to their show. Consider it their loss.

      Betty, the picture with your precious grandkids speaks to what's really important.

      It's their loss not to have your lovely work in this year's show!

        Betty -- Your brother's improvement and spending time with the grandkids are the important things in life. And If I were king of the craft show, you'd be there, even if I had to kick another woodworker out..

            So glad your bro is doing better. Bummer about the show, but you will be on the list next year, I'll bet.

            Love the pic of you, hubby and the gkids.

              Glad to hear that your brother is on the mend and that you get time to spend with family. Shows come and go but Family is much more important. They will miss your work I am sure, their loss.

                Hi Betty - so glad to hear that your brother is on the mend. Regarding the show, I guess it's a disappointment for you but take the news with a pinch of salt. Jury decisions are always subjective and its best to take them or leave them. We and you know your work is good and there are always other opportunities.

                Great photo of the grandparents and kids. Looks like you make a fun bunch when out together.

                      No, Rolf, that's not my house. It's somewhere in the grounds of the Alamo, in front of the Library, I think. There is another 3 day show in Oct I am applying for so I'm not too concerned about not getting in that one. It was close, we could stay home so no hotel fees. But like everyone says, their loss not mine!!!

                          Betty I see the prayers for your brother were heard....glad he is back home.

                          I remember one show years ago we juried for and got into...they came around the first day and said we had way to much stock displayed for the show. They gave us a 5'X20' booth and we put up a wall display and filled it....they wanted us to remove most of it...said it would not be fair to others that did not bring as much. Sold the hell out of our items and did not try to go back the next year...even when the invited us!!

                              Its a marathon not a dance. My 14 year old grandson ran a 8:50 mile in the 10k and finished 150 out of 1550 runners! My 12 year old granddaughter ran a 11:16 mile and came in 661 out of 1600 runners. Beat her mother by 100th of a second! I’m sure Sarah let her cross the line first. Tomorrow is the...

                              I must apologize to everyone on the list. I'm afraid my ornaments will be late. Thursday afternoon, Connie got checked into the hospital with congestive heart failure. Between that and her alzheimers, it has been an interesting couple of days. Once she is released from the hospital, she will go to an...

                              These items, except the Christmas sign, are for 2 orders. Had a tough time this week, that brick wall kept getting in my way! Other than the market, I’m off until Monday! I decided to raise the price of the Christmas sign to $40. Tomorrow will be a heat wave - 45 at 6am! Mostly sunny. We’ll see...
