What I’ve Been Up To, May part 2

May, part 2.

Here’s the beautiful art my friend Dawn Murphy did for me for my story in Contact Light. I <3 it so much! IMG_9296

Dave sadly moved on to another job post the loss of Hitomi. It’s a bummer to not have him around the office even though he’s still around for lunch and such. So we made a fake Dave.

Joe was in town so we got to record and play a bunch. He brough his new double necked Ovation:

Oh Raoul. He likes his beer.

This was at a house concert Kevin and Jenna had for Native Run, who were really great.

Raoul even watched. (He literally was, it was really funny! He likes bands.)

He also helped out at the merch table:

I bought two little 1790s sepia pins. This one is so sweet, with the woman playing a lute!

Alex’s amusing lunch email:


Are you sad? Is the weather getting you down? Can you just not bear to think about another weekend of cold, wet, yuckiness?

THEN COME ON DOWN TO POLLO CABANA!

Conveniently located in the scenic greenway center, pollo cabana has all the amenities you need to over come the rainy day blues. It’s got

Hot food
A roof
Tables, AND NOW FEATURING CHAIRS!
Nearness
The chance that someone else will drive you there

All that and more is available at your local pollo cabana, so come on down! Try to leave your dreary place of work by 11:45.

What’s stopping you? Chicken?

I put together this montage of all the selfies taken by John Mather the day the JWST mirror faced us.

Near the Town Center, there’s a development that has a small lake and a walking path. And a random wildflower meadow that is so pretty!

On my flight to Abbey Road on the River I spotted this cool letter to the editor in the Southwest Airlines magazine about a JWST feature they did.

While I was gone, Doug sent me this pic of Willow in front of my computer. Maybe she missed me!

Another pic from Doug. Happy girl!
