  4. Absolutely marvelous to see you back again, but definitely worth the wait. Just one minor point.... that lighthouse is definitely not Bandon. More like Trinidad in California.

  5. But wait....I wasn't through the Twelve Step Program yet. Does this mean I will need to go back to Step One??

    Gorgeous museum collection! I am glad Wild Horses...couldn't drag you away...

  6. Love the picture set, but I'm intrigued about that lighthouse (being a bit of a lighthouse nut). I know it's not in Bandon. In fact I can't think of anywhere in OR that it might be. California maybe? Gorgeous pics!

  10. The painting in your header photo is dramatic! It captures that same essence that you catch when photographing the mountains. Amazing. Do hope that you are doing OK and that the surgery will happen soon and be done with. Thinking of you and glad to see you painting and posting.

  16. I agree with Sue, your header painting is a master piece, with such vivid colors of purple and green. Caleb and Bobbie looking good hiking the Perimeter Trail, keeping their footing around the waterfall. Hope all is well with you.
