And Then There's . . .

. . . Mrs Iago's birthday. The twelth, on a Friday and a full moon, a big 'un, at its closest to Earth as its gonna get this year, with the twin and her stewardess collegue, and a fair amount of decent vino. My bro-in-law and I watched In Bruges in the hours before dawn, more or less, while the three gals and the third gal's guy carried on a loud and rambling conversation which deafened me to much of the dialogue in the flick and forced me to concentrate more than my vino-addled mind was willing to read the Chinese subtitles. By the time we got home by shuttle bus and mass rapid transit and railway train way across to the southwestern sector of the basin, exhaustion made it easy to crash. And Mrs Iago had a real good time.

Next year I will try harder to get her a birthday prez.

But here is a prez for me, which well may be the fountain that provides the means to get that prez for my girl.


Yup. That's it.

Hi Doug from Oregon in Taiwan.
Thanks for the compliment on my artwork. I get very little traffic on my blogger site, so it's nice to hear a kind word from a stranger far away. I really started my blogspot just as an easy way to show my portfolio, without having my own web site. I really need to learn more about getting it out there, so I'd appreciate any tips you may have. What line of work are you in? Did you live in Oregon long? After 10 years of living in the Portland area, I just moved to Phoenix, AZ. Well, whenever you have the time, you know where to drop a line...thanks, and nice to meet you!
