Lunch was fun. I ate with David P, David F, John B, & John D. It was sort of a farewell dinner with David P. He leaves the Red Barn after this next week, but he only goes to Salina. Then he returns to Guatemala in mid-May. It was a nice meal with really nice people.
I then went to Red Barn. The guys followed. David F had many new paintings to show us. Some wonderful African inspired mask pieces & some great wheat fields.
Work went pretty well. Marsha was there all afternoon. Four ladies from a neighbouring town came in for tour. All very nice. But. One had a small child. That child was on the furniture, touching art work, not staying with us. I was a nervous wreck. I told the child once to not touch anything. They finally took her outside. But not for long enough. EVERYTHING in the Red Barn is priceless & cannot be replaced. If one of his chairs or tables or tools is ruined, it cannot be replaced. It is part museum & part gallery. We have signs telling people this. After they left Marsha taught me something new to do. Not hard to do. I will enjoy it.
One of the ladies looked so familar. I kept looking at her. And she kept looking at me in the same way. She finally remember who I was. She was a foster child in my grandsons family. She used to go to church with us sometimes. I had not seen her for a long time. She is still very pretty, probably in her early 20s. A nice reunion.
When I got home my stomach hurt so bad. I took a zantac but nothing. I am sure they stress of an out of control child did not help. Nor did waiting for the crash of something ceramic breaking. We went to Salina to eat. After I had food in my stomach I felt lots better. Maybe I need to eat smaller & more frequent meals? Might give it a try.
We bought groceries tonite. Never a cheap affair. At least the town was slow wherever we went. March Madness keeps people home.
The entire day was cloudy, foggy, misty. I actually like this kind of weather. Supposed to have chance for severe storm tonite, but there is nothing on the radar. Hmm.
We bought some pig strips for Jo. She loves them!! She was like a dog possessed. We could not get near her! If one of us tried, she would turn away or scurry away. There is no sharing!!!
The new abandoned calf is still alive. It will suck on a bottle. But it went over 12 hrs. with no food. That screws their stomach up. Hopefully she will survive. See what tomorrow brings.
I am officially on ‘vacation’. As a ‘college student’, spring break started for me last friday. No class monday evening. So where is MY ticket to Ft. Lauderdale or Texas????
