Today, Wendy did a fabulous pear that we all thought was magnificent - great color and loose brushstrokes. She left class early before everyone had a chance to see, and we all agreed that it is a great little pear. What do YOU think?

SIMPLY THE BEST! the other Tina...

What a great show Tina Turner gave in Minneapolis last Thursday night!!! She is AMAZING! She still has that super passion, soulfulness and energy she's known for at age 69, and it was on fine display. Great dancers, theatrics and pyrotechnics made the show dazzling. I got to go to the show with my friend Molly with tickets given to us so generously by friends. Thanks so much for your generosity, friends!!!! We got great seats on the 13th row center!!! Go see Tina on this last tour. You won't be sorry! She delivers BIG!


Our Beloved Tina...

As some of you know, Tina got hit and killed by a car yesterday evening when she was being walked and bolted after a squirrel in front of a car.  We lost grip of the leash when she suddenly pulled away.  We miss her dearly and know she's in heaven now getting every squirrel she wants, jumping even higher than she could, running in open air.  We will miss her fun personality and warmth towards us all.  She was the best dog we ever had...  We love you, Tina!
