This shows the process I used to make this year’s “new year” card… the first good one always goes to my parents! Here is the lovely little fir at my parents’ house — these open trees show the ornaments off so well! And here is the elder stidkid trying out his grandfather’s cross-country skis for […]
When we returned from my parent’s house this afternoon I sat down to load a few pictures. And learned that Eartha Kitt died today. Here is the BBC article about her, and here is another from a local TV station. I always thought she was elegant, brave and talented. I know that she was determined […]
