Going To Austin

<span class= I'm taking a short break for the Memorial Day weekend and visiting my daughter and the Penis Posse. For those who aren't too familiar with Austin, it's the capitol of Texas. This is where our leg and reps hang out and do nuthin' and where our gov, Perry (a.k.a. hair god) runs our state...actually, the lt. gov and cronies run the state...not going to get into TX history, but that's how it's worked since after the Civil War.

I've been working on a few things in my lab...er...studio and started making doll heads. I won't be able to get back in there for another 2 weeks since I have prior commitments that require me to move heavy objects and sweat!!! A dear friend of mine is closing down her shop and it's a bit sad. Those of us who helped put it up 11 years ago, will be packing it up next week. The economy and personal issues have forced her to make this difficult decision, but in the long run, I think it's best for her. She told me she was planning on spending some time with me in my studio so I can help her find her artistic voice...probably with a few bottles of wine...who can't find their voices that way!!

Well, need to get to my mother's and take her out shopping. She just came back from a wonderful trip in Dallas where she and her "conmadre" were wined and dined by their other "conpadres." She went to Shreveport, LA for some fun gambling and actually won!!! So she needs to get back into the swing of her life and buy some food for the week...I think she's taking this widow thing really well, but my pop said she would!!! Love ya, Pop!

Have a wonderful time - and I'm not even going to ask what a Penis Posse is.

Aren't I the soul of discretion?
