I haven’t posted in 6 weeks. And I have a good excuse. Really.
They’re called Henry and Joe. They’re my grandkids and they’ve been with me for a month. Oh yeah, a couple of others came with them. Like their parents, their aunt, and their other grandmother. But those people are incidental, right? I mean, compared to two darling, blonde 6 and 3 year-olds, EVERYONE else is incidental.
They leave tomorrow for England, which is home. Yup, my grandkids speak with English accents because my son married a Londoner and they’re raising them in a darling village south of London. Odd to hear my own grandkids say: “Grand-muthuh, might I have a glahss of woe-tuh?” Jeez, they sound smarter than me.
After they leave, I’m in the studio solid until January 26th. All will be revealed, but suffice it to say I’m doing a large painting for the new Boquete Public Library. It opens on the 26th and my painting will be featured on the ground floor. And with family staying with us over the holidays, I’m late. Very, very, late.
I will see you in late January and I will have posts on our activities: 5 days in Boca Chica at the Pacific Bay Resort, 5 days in Bocas del Toro, zip lining in the tree tops above Boquete and lots of other fun.
I have no idea what is going on in the world, but I can quote word and verse of the Scooby Doo movie. Rock on, Scooby. “Ruh Row, Raggie!”
