October - how did that happen??

I spent the weekend in Joshua Tree, Ca, with a friend. We attended 2 - 1 day workshops with Ellen Hill, a water-colorist. On location in Joshua Tree National Park, way out, behind lock gates and awesome. Ellen was great, the other students interesting and sharing and the scenery magnificent. Son Brian learned to rock climb in this park.

With the right frame of mind and incite, the desert is beautiful. The 2 park ranger volunteers were also wonderful.

And apparently no blog would be complete without food.

We went to Ruby's Restaurant at the end of the Huntington Beach Pier. Meet daughter Erin and Michael.
Michael, a 20 yr. vegetarian having a Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Sandwich - he said he had been thinking about bacon. Pork seems to be something people dream about.

And Tom the wood turner These are segmented wood bracelets. He is busy buying all sorts of wood to cut into really tiny pieces to make bracelets. Ebony wood apparently goes for $98. a board foot. Too bad I like black and white. A Capricorn accountant - appears to be a perfect match for segmented wood.

Happy Columbus Day, apparently no mail delivery

Weren't you just there, not long ago? The photos of the rocks are beautiful. The bracelets are wonderful, too!
