Waiting for Our New Grandson

DEC 13 2012:  I took a 2 week trip to WA to be with my daughters over Thanksgiving and I took a roadtrip with my cousin Joanne (Bonnar) and her friend Heidi, to Vancouver, BC.  I got back in time to cut our Christmas tree from our land, decorate it, and send out a couple of packages for Christmas.  While in WA, I was with Shannon and Jessica at our favorite coffee shop on the water in Port Townsend, when I was commissioned to paint a mermaid for a guy from AK who is living on his boat in the PT harbor, so that he could send it as a Christmas gift to his nephew.  That was cool!  I sold and bartered quite a lot while on the trip, out of my Tiny Turtle Travelling Gallery.  Any day now, our grandson will be born in Menasha.  My stepson Nathan and Heather are his parents.  We're excited to meet him!
