Thank you Geoffrey Williams !



Gunnar & I drove to Dallas on Saturday ( to deliver a case of Old Style Beer from Chicago) to our daughter & son-in-law. We went out to dinner at a fun Cajun restaurant called RAZOOS just as we were finishing our meal a man walked up with a large piece of paper in his hand he said


"This isn't for money I'm not selling anything but I'm an artist & I like to challenge myself by sketching -- I made this sketch of you folks and would like you to have it"


How fun was that!!??!! I love the sketch talk about flattering I just lost 20 lbs and my old lady wattle--


left to right my daughter Kajsa, son-in-law Brendan, husband Gunnar, then me.

Isn't this just the most amazing case of synchronicity? How wonderful he gave you the sketch and signed it for you too. I'll bet he was equally amazed that you are an artist as well. Such a nice story!

That is really neat. Did you tell him you are an artist too? I'm not sure I'd like to part with my sketch so easily as he did. Great for your family though.
