Building a BBQ

Song - "I Love Lucy" opening theme

Beautiful day today and it made me think about grilling our dinner tonight.  But then the clouds came in and I decided to save the BBQ for another day. 

I have some old photo's and postcards that I have collected over the years from the Lake Tahoe Flea Market.  It is pretty "funky" but occasionally I find something to add to my collection.  Usually it is just fun to people watch.

Sisters? Friends? I love the laundry flying and how tight the woman in the back seems to need to hug the woman in the front.

This photo reminded me of the old "I Love Lucy" episode when she and Ethel build a BBQ.  Lucy loses her wedding ring in the cement and they have to take it all apart and put it back together (kind of) in one night.

"Lucy: Now Ethel, I'd do it for you if you'd lost your wedding ring. Ethel: If I lost my wedding ring, we wouldn't have to find it. We'd just have to buy another box of Cracker Jack"

There is a small group show going up at the gallery in May that I am participating in.  So for the last week I have been painting some 8 x 8 canvas's of my garden flowers.  I have a few more to paint but I just love painting happy flowers when it's gray, cold and storming outside!
