A Thing of Beauty

The all American image; just how we hope the turkey will look as it arrives at the table.

So many things to be thankful for, but today especially for me is the encouraging word of a friend. I've been disappointed by what a trial it's been over the last year to keep this blog going because of slow internet service and an old spastic computer, and I've been tempted to shut it down. But a friend said, "Oh  no, Alex; keep it going." So watch for more on this blog as I try to give it a new look and maybe a new theme.

Quote of the Week

"The painter will produce pictures of little merit if he takes the work of others as his standard, but if he will apply himself to learn from the objects of nature he will produce good results."
