It was a fabulous Spring Folk Art Show ...However I picked up a terrible cold and finally on Thursday I realized I simply had to crawl in bed take aspirin, drink lots of juice, tea and get some SLEEP. So the dogs and I took to the mattresses. I'm up today feeling a little better, but taking it slow. Plan to be back in action by Wednesday. Keep on punchin.
