  • Hello Connie and all who left comments. I have moved to the west side of Florida, closer to Tampa/St. Pete., closer to my favorite shows.
    I want to thank you all for your comments about continuing to do shows in your later years. I'm 80, work alone, and love doing shows. I fell at the Beaux Miami (2020) show going into the museum and had a bad injury, then the covid came. I have asthma and COPD so didn't even apply till now, because I've had the vaccinations. My first show is the fun Dunedin next weekend and I'm hopeful that all will go well. I am renting a tent due to daylight savings starting that weekend.
    Reading all your blogs gave me renewed hope that I can continue for another couple of years making things easier by renting a tent.
    The art show folks I've met are the nicest and helpful people I've ever known.
    I have been very lucky and I know it. The awards I've been so grateful to have received, the places I've been, and the great people I've met and hope to see again this season in Florida.
    Thank you all for the inspiration to continue.
