    Shoot - have to work this weekend.......

    I hear the Wyeth exhibit is pretty special at the Portland museum. Features NC, Andrew and Jamie.

    I went to the opening of the Wyeth exhibit at the SAM (Seattle Art Museum) and it is astonishing! If you're in the NW for a short time, it's well worth seeing. The Christies American art expert kept walking around saying, "Wow.....wow......wow". Many paintings from private collections, just in from Chadd's Ford, PA - ends 1-15-18 and not going anywhere else.

    "My friends who see my collection sometimes ask what something costs. I tell them and they are in awe at my stupidity." (Baccaruda, 12/03).I find it hard to believe that he (Trump) rushed to some hotel to meet girls of loose morals, although ours are undoubtedly the best in the world. (Putin 1/17) Gone but not forgotten. IGWT, Speedy, Bear, BigE, HokieFore, John Burns, Russ, TahoeDale, Dahlonega, Astrorat, Stewart Blay, Oldhoopster, Broadstruck, Ricko.
