Mom's Birthdate

Fitting there was a Royal Gala today, impeccably dressed men and women on their best behavior. Regal and well coiffed. Pomp and circumstance and lots of glitter. Mom would have loved a tiara.

The "Hood"

The flowers are blooming, the trees are leafing and color is popping - all over DC, my brother's beautiful neighborhood.

Gump- try 1 and try 2

Better here, more of his "attitude" and less fussed with. I better get some practice in, I have two puppies coming in a few weeks! not so good
No inspiration lately, even with spring springing up here finally, I still feel like I am hibernating - so I picked up my pen and forced myself to draw Gump, my daughters 7 month old bull mastiff . Too fussy, and not a real likeness, even though he held still for a cookie.

Full OOPs Moon

OOPS, I think I added the script too late last night. This full moon is not the Lenten Moon (that was last month), It is the Pink Moon, or the Grass Moon, Egg Moon, or among coastal tribes the Full Fish Moon. Around here it could be called the Full Flood Moon.

Citgo

Anyone who visits Boston proper, knows the giant Citgo sign stands right beside Fenway Park, sort of a guiding star to the Red Sox mecca. I dedicated this page to a few of the Fenway icons I have not recorded in the past.

Yawkey Way

Standing in line for admittance to Fenway, I noted the lovely old brick work and that Fabulous Fierce Fenway Green.(but I sure got confused in the diamond brick layout!)

Spring Somewhere

My brother in DC sent me gorgeous pictures of the cherry blossoms and then fields of tulips and daffodils - I am still waiting here in Connecticut for any color.
