Grateful Willie Nelson has resumed concert tour . . .

From CNN:
The country singer's publicist told CNN on Monday that Nelson will be performing as scheduled at the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo on February 16, after several canceled concerts.

Though he did not attend the Grammy Awards on Sunday night, Nelson won the award for best traditional pop vocal album for "Summertime: Willie Nelson Sings Gershwin." 
The 83-year-old's concert on Thursday will kick off the remainder of his 
"Willie Nelson & Family Tour," which includes 27 upcoming dates.

Time to create new art - this has been on my wall a long time.
(from my altered book project)

Haven't visited "The Garden" in awhile.

Attending a Conference next week.  Intend to return refreshed.
Looking forward to visiting Your Blog. 
Moments from now I'll be clicking on your links at Willy-Nilly.
It's cold-ish.  I always do "contrast and compare."  It always help to "get over myself."  There was a week when the warmest was 4 degrees (yep, four degrees) - so, this morning at 24 degrees is "balmy" - right?  Puppy Gets Her Adventures.

Borrowed from Netflix.

 treat for the eyes
and ears . . . 

color me happy.

ask me again . . .


Wonder where the dog is . . . 

Grandfather made a rule I should always have canine company.
Grandfather didn't speak much.  His words were honored.

There are always companions.  Sometimes a cat.  Once a Bobcat.

  I am not speaking to the photographer.
(yes, i still remember why . . . giggle)

Marching Away

2016 has officially marched away

There is a television station that plays programs my dad enjoyed

time for some quiet
an ice storm will keep me home for a few days

YES!  my puppy and i went for a walk this morning
we didn't head home until the freezing drops began

I don't remember where you are . . .

There is a willy-nilly place
but, I've lost you
1.  There's a new law in Missouri allowing for many more guns to be carried

2.  On New Years Eve local musicians posted where they were  - 
and how much gunfire was going on
It was concerning. 

3.  A Long time ago my Great Grandmother talked to me about "Protection." 

4.  She gave me a long hat pin with an amethyst on the end.

5.  I Miss her, and the pin, and the idea that a hat pin was all that was needed to stay safe.

love & love,
