Washing the red trolley.


Painting the back wall of the Cafe.

Before & After.


Done. It matches.

Painted the counter too since it was peeling.


Sparkling!


We have been volunteering at the ‘Spring Cleanup‘ for the last two years. This was our 3rd year — at least for Teischan & I. We have also done the ‘Fall Cleanup’.

Cleaning the trolleys have become our speciality. This was our 3rd year doing so. There was only two this year. We have done all three in prior years. This year we had to fisrt remove Christmas decorations from December. It is all fun.

Then I agreed to pain the back wall of the ‘Cafe’. I had NO idea what I was volunteering for — & was definitely not dressed for painting. But, c’est la vie. It was a beautiful day & I am used to going topless. Yes, the wall needs another coat of paint. We, however, had run out of both paint & time. But, it will do for now.

The Castle is opening on July 1, 2020. It is looking good.

We will make a few visits between now & Christmas.

Definitely worth visiting. Enjoy.

Father’s Day 2019 — Teischan’s Hand Painted Present.

As with the Father’s Day card, what can I say?

Just makes my day.

Yes, I kind of knew I would get a painting. That is her thing. Her trademark. The mother and I get paintings for all the important holidays.

But, I do NOT take it for granted. It is always special.

Not much I can add. A solemn day in the end. Day to reflect, a day to give thanks — that we are speaking English rather than German.

Please check ALL the ‘D-Day‘ and ‘Red Poppy‘ posts on this blog. The search box is on the sidebar. In those days I covered much.

Remember. Reflect. Rejoice!

This is a magnificent piece of art in it own right, even if you put aside the subject matter. The portraits of the five Allied Commanders are special; portraits Dick Bobnick’s forte.

You really must check this painting out. The detail is incredible.

Continuing my series on the historic aspect of Canyon de Chelly as opposed to its majestic grandeur.

I have already talked quite a bit about this ‘White House‘, the best known and most visited of the ruins, as well as posted this video on the hike to the ‘White House’ ruins. Just wanted to share this picture.

Even more of the historic aspect of Canyon de Chelly as opposed to its majestic grandeur.

Yesterday I shared with you the ‘Massacre Cave‘ ruins on the North Rim. This is the cave itself where 115 Navajo, men, women and children, were massacred by the Spanish, in 1805 — with guns.

Just the NAME ‘Massacre Cave‘, on the North Rim, tells you ALL, chillingly. 115 Navajo, men, women and children, were massacred in the caves, by the Spanish, in 1805 — with guns.

These ruins are NOT really a part of that Massacre. They are ruins that are BELOW the cave, on the other side of the Canyon.

I have already talked about the ‘Antelope House‘ ruins. This is the artwork from which it gets its name. In the North Rim.

“Alice In Wonderland” Lewis Carroll’s 185th Birth Anniversary — In Lieu Of Google Doodle.

by Anura Guruge


lewiscarroll


There has never been a Google Doodle for British polymath Lewis Carroll, real name: Charles Lutwidge Dodgson.

Other authors, artists and mathematicians, of course, have been honored.

I have a hunch, and that snippet, above, on the left his painting of a young lady, who was his muse for “Alice in Wonderland”.
