The Adventure Continues

Staycation Day 3. So far I have chatted over dinner with a Texas oilman, scheduled a photo session with the artist/sculptor I told you about, seen a film, gone to three museums, walked around like crazy (can you guess where?), went on a cable car, and had my feet massaged/mangled in Chinatown.

I have not been working on your interview questions, for those of you who volunteered, but maybe tonight I will get started. But I did begin making some of your prints to send out, so don't think I've forgotten about you.

I miss you! But I've got to run. I'll catch you later.

The artist/sculptor has got to be your greatest find to date-except for baconaise. Can't wait to see some of those photos. Totally carpal twinging right now. keep having fun!

It makes me happy knowing you are keeping busy on your time off. Much happier then if you were sitting at your computer pondering away about questions. We can wait, you only have so much time off! Enjoy

So... I want to know what film you saw?!? I never get out to movies much anymore and it's been so many years since I've been to San Fran... I need more details so I can truly live vicariously through you!

You're going to have to go back to work so you can get some rest. A Texas oilman eh...I remember you telling me that all San Franciscans were not alike well contrary to popular belief we Texans are not all oilmen, cowboys, ride horses to work, nor do we all either add, nor subtract letters or sylables from our words.

Enjoy your "staycation". Oh the butter...a straightened...with a curve in the middle metal clothes hanger. Don't forget to heat, not too hot, one end. The hot end pokes through so it can be lifted by the cooler section.

You usually make outrageous points, but this is the first time you've illustrated them so succinctly. =)

I am so glad you are mid-frolic!

Sounds like you're busy as a bee and having a blast! (It must be alliteration Wednesday. I don't know.) How nice that a chance meeting with a stranger could lead to scheduling photo sessions!

I'm really looking forward to my print, and I loved that conservatory shot. It lead to some picnic daydreams. : ) Keep enjoying the staycation!

Hey, TB, no rush, I look forward to seeing those images :-).

Greetings from London.

sounds like an amazing day! I may have some of that this week. I went on a photo hunt adventure this afternoon but was not successful. Tomorrow I need to go to the museum.

I went to the bookstore I was planning on photographing, and it was CLOSED - like no books, no sign, nothing. I thought I'd whip over to the pottery place down the street and at lease get a few good shots - and it was CLOSED too. No potts, no nothing, no sign. Desperate, I started shooting my industrial work area again, and have yet to get a look at the results.

staycation! sounds like fun. I love when people enjoy their home enough to 'vacation' there. :)

Sounds like you're making excellent use of your staycation! And since you've posted this photograph, I think it's safe to post photos soon of some sculptures I took a while back, which seemed rather, shall we say, direct? :) xoxox

I will wait patiently to see the pictures from your session, with the sculptor. ; )

Good night, love.
