Christmas is just around the corner, and I'm all set. Sent out my cards and got my gifts. Of course the greatest gift was delivered on Nov.23rd when my granddaughter, Beatrix Lily, was born. She has these wonderful, long, delicate fingers. Obviously, the artistic gene has been passed on. I've included a picture of her whistling. This is one precocious child. She's beautiful and intelligent. (Hey, I am her grandfather, but I'm telling you the God's honest truth.)

Yes, once again both sculptures were down at the train station. Awise man once told me, as he passed me by, "You must be nuts to do that!" Well, I certainly can't argue with him over his evaluation of my actions. It's becoming more and more tedious re-building these sculptures. The fact that it's becoming colder and colder outside, doesn't help. Even finding a five dollar bill at the train station didn't make re-building the rock sculpture for the umpteenth time any more satisfying. So, again, there's a rock sculpture up for unknown people to pass by and marvel at. That is, marvel at the insanity of it all. Sure, I could cement the sculptures, but then they lose the natural appeal of being balanced just so. Well, we'll see how much longer I continue with this endeavor.
