On Saturday I was to meet with my first potential person for my Young Dad’s with Children Portrait series.Â I was excited about meeting him but it didn’t occur.Â I’m hoping to contact other sources to help me be in contact with young dads who may be interested in being part of this portrait sequence.Â This is an idea I’ve had for a while.Â The idea is in it’s infancy stage so there’s not yet much to report.Â As other opportunities unfold in making this project a reality I will keep you posted.
Diane and I had tea/coffee with our very wonderful friends Jacqueline and Jean Claude.Â We so much enjoy their humor, wit and friendship.Â As Diane and I were driving to their home there was a tarantula rain storm that was so strong that I needed to pull my car off into the breakdown lane.Â I just couldn’t see because of the heavy rains that pounded against the windshield.Â Also the cars ahead were barely visible. After a few moments I started driving on the highway.Â The rain seemed to lighten its weight slightly. Finally, we safely came to the home of our friends.Â We had a terrific afternoon.Â Then it was time to leave. Jacqueline is an amazing gardner and baker.Â She had prepared scrumptuous scones, raisin tea cake and home made strawberry jam. Y U M M Y!Â Jean Claude makes the most delicious coffee – he carries with him a little timer to be sure of the coffees brewing exactness. I had two cups. After a glorious afternoon of laughter, wisdom and advice Diane and I departed with profound love and gratefulness that these two terrific people are part of our lives.Â Adieu.
