Random things....

Remember I told you an artist wanted to use my barn photo for one of his projects...a pen and ink project?
His name is Sonny Perschbacher, and a few days ago he contacted me and offered to send me a copy. I told him I would be happy if he just took a photo and sent it via email. Well, he did that but yesterday I also received a copy. I went to his sight and it is listed there....you can see it right HERE! For some reason I cannot copy the link he gives down on the right side. Anyway, I really, really like it. I would like it if it wasn't a barn I had photographed.

I am thinking I will have Sarah mat it for me if she can find the time...she is talented that way. And I will have Roger make a frame. Maybe from a piece of wood that came from our own old barn. It may be a while before it is done with the things coming up.
*************
Roger got the results of the blood work and the biopsy he had done last time at the doctor and they did not show anything at all out of the ordinary. So week after next he goes and has the patches put on. The only thing about them is he has got to keep them dry, so won't be able to get out and do anything and won't be able to take a shower. He will be fit to be tied with both of those things.
***************
Has anyone else heard of the Kim Komando show on radio....she is the digital goddess. I don't listen to her near all the time simply because I forget. But I LOVE her show...she covers so many areas and helps people with problems, tells about new apps, new programs, talks about security issues...she just covers everything. I really have thought about paying for a subscription till I can listen any time I want to.

Sure not everything is something I am interested in, but almost every time I hear it I learn something new. Or hear about a cool deal...some of which I have really regretted not grabbing. Oh, not through her show...but about a year ago one of the camera companies had out a little point and shoot camera for $89 that was water proof or water resistant....I should have grabbed that too quick to talk about cause I am all the time wishing I had one. Just to be out in the rain and snow sometimes...
*******************
The auction house came and picked up my daughter's stuff yesterday, along with a few items from our garage. I wish we could have brought it here and sold it through Craigslist or something, but just too much of it and it was too heavy for Roger and I to deal with. I still do not have strength in my left arm, so cannot do a lot of lifting. Someone is going to be very lucky to get her washer and dryer....I think they had been used a year.
*************************
We are waiting on the kids to get here...they should be here in another hour or so. They had things to do before they get here. It is not as warm as I would wish for Lorelei but she will probably be fine.

I am scheduling this to post later tonight...probably won't be visiting anyone till tomorrow evening....

Wow, the sketch from your photo is awesome!!! I am glad you are going to frame and hang it. I haven't heard of this radio show, it sounds awesome!! You will have to tell us some of the tips from time to time.

The sketch is excellent. I'd frame it too!

That is so neat that Sonny Perschbacher used your barn for one of his projects... SO neat that he sent you a copy... AWESOME!!!!! Hope you do frame it.

Glad Roger is okay --but I know he'll hate those patches... Men have a harder time with those kinds of things than women. Prayers for him.

I've heard Kim Komando on the radio some.. Very interesting lady.

Enjoy your daughter and granddaughter. I know you will.

Hugs,
Betsy

I can see why the artist wanted to use your image to produce a beautiful piece of art. Very nice!

Maple Lane said...

That's a lovely sketch and I know you treasure it. A frame made out of old barn wood is an excellent idea.

You've posted a fine picture and an interesting "catch up" on your activities... which is always interesting.

Ellie said...

Oh how wonderful to have one of your pictures sketched. Did a fine job of it too. You really should get it framed and put on your wall. Well done and congratulations.

Mary said...

Wow...he's really good! But your photo is what made it so great to work with. Really looks nice. He should give you a copy for free for providing the photo.

Neal said...

That is really nice. I made a comment below the picture. He has it listed as an old barn in Indiana rather than Tennessee.

The pen and ink is wonderful! What an honor to have someone draw from your photo!

Marie said...

I am so happy for you that the man made the drawing of your wonderful photo and sent you a copy! I think framing it in old barn wood would be great!

I'm sorry your hubby has to have patches on him. Glad the biopsy went well. I am not sure what he is going through right now. I must have missed a past post. But I hope he is right as rain very soon!
