Re: Autumn in the Big Bend National Park
Robyn & others:
I suspect the ground hogs do sleep in but... it's been quite a while since we have seen one here. Doom-da-doom-doom! Rose bush rabbit however is seen daily. Some discarded cat will nail it but meantime we enjoy seeing the thing.
Our weather today was hot air... it's not just hot out in the sun. Heat Index hit 110F with a measured 100F. We went out to the Peruvian restaurant. Burp.
We also have a Museum If Art here. I'm wondering if they are a chain? And... where do they get that stuff?
Well, now I know why the canvases were on sale. Nielsen makes a lot of mouldings including eight* with a 3/4 inch rabbet. But... finding a retailer that stocks them, plus offers them in German Silver, is the problem. I smell a compromise and I am not happy about it. Perhaps a floating frame? Have to check that out. Perhaps put a 1/4 inch shim on the back and buy 1 inch rabbet framing? Perhaps use wooden frames? Fortunately I'm not in a hurry to do the framing.

Every time we go to the grocery store I'm amazed by the prices and the clever packaging that disguises smaller amounts and makes it hard to mentally calculate price per unit. And... the things in the pharmacy... where did they get the idea they could jack up prices like that? Book stores... paperback novels for $17! When I was a kid they were 35 cents. Really. A cheap new car costs over ten times what they did. Fifteen times... yeah some are far superior now but still I gasp at their prices.
Donald... he's a nutter but... Pence would be worst. The nut-job can't get his ugly agenda through but Pence is another story. Gasp! Maybe it would be best to keep donnie in office... if Pence is the option.
