Fifty

It absolutely is true…50 years ago on September 20, 1969, Roger Hull and Bonnie Decker got married in Wilmette, Illinois… and I can’t find the wedding pictures anywhere…so I started looking at other photos of us through the years. We’ve always had fun. We have had somber and sad moments like all lives have, but […]

Visiting

These last few weeks I’ve been dropping in. Sometimes I was delivering dishes from my “transfer ware give-away,” or checking in to see how the dishes look in place, maybe seeing an art exhibit or looking at beautiful Japanese fabric…various. This has meant some pleasant conversation and lots of great visuals. Instead of a tight […]

The Floors!

Our house is old for this part of the world…1849. It’s been moved twice, and the current fir floors probably date from the first move in 1893.

Dads

Father’s day weekend…here was the first Father’s day/Grandfather’s day five years ago… Roger’s father (with C & C & R) Roger’s Grandfather holding Roger’s father… and this year Sidney and Vivien are in Christiansted, USVI…celebrating with their father!  

Making

There is a week between delivering my work to the Minthorne Gallery at George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon, and my actually seeing the exhibit up on the walls.  A week for the curator, Sarah Cuevas,  to arrange, decide, place.  I’ll see the exhibit (“Little Me”) in place next Monday when the curtain goes up […]
