Dear *|FNAME|*:

Summer is upon us.

I had polio as a child and they fixed me with exercises in the pool. As I grow older and my mobility is again challenged, I find that exercise in a pool is working again. Love this pool up here in the trees and surrounded by mountains.

What is special about summer?

  • What a joy it is to take photos on my cellphone, better than any camera I have ever owned before. Did you know that you can email us the photos right from your phone and with Photo-to-Artwork we can put them together as a virtual painting or a collage. You approve the basic design and the frame. You pay only for the framing, and the ArTex which makes your picture look like an oil painting. Remember, the photo work is free. We can personalize your gift for Dad, or Nanna and Poppa.

  • Father’s Day is June 15th. Men are sometimes hard to please, for they have everything. Many settle for a generic gift, but that would be a disservice. You want to get your father a special gift, a gift that cements the special relationship you have with him. Photo-to-Artwork if a great gift for Dad, but an even better gift for Nanna and Poppa. Grandparents Day is on Sunday, September 7th

  • In the summer kids often visit with the grandparents, especially up here on the hill. Have they outgrown Mickey Mouse and Cinderella? Suggestion: Decorate your kid’s room with animals and this will last throughout the teenage years. We carry unusually warm animal pictures by Ruane Manning. Remember, you choose the image and we can frame in any frame of your choosing.

  • In the summer one wants one’s skin to be soft and smooth. When I go to the pool my skin gets dry and my feet crack. There is an outstanding solution that works for me that comes from Africa. I always have Shea Butter on hand in the summertime.

During the summer months we display our Art Gallery at the Flying J Truck stop in Lebec. You can find us there outside Denny’s on the weekend before Father’s Day, and on the Labor Day weekend. We may even be there on the Fourth of July this year.

They have great restrooms at this Truck Stop.

I was barely sitting down when I heard a voice from the other stall saying:

"Hi, how are you?"

I'm not the type to start a conversation in the restroom and I don't know what got into me, But I answered, somewhat embarrassed,

"Doin' just fine!"

And the other person says:

"So what are you up to?"

What kind of question is that? At that point, I'm thinking this is too bizarre so I say,
"Just hanging!"

At this point I want to get out as fast as I can before I hear another question.

"Can I come over?"

Ok, this question is just too weird for me, so time to end the conversation. I say,

"No, I'm a little busy right now!!!"

Then I hear the other person say nervously,

"Listen, I'll have to call you back. There's an idiot in the other stall who keeps answering all my questions!"

Cell phones, don't you just love them!

Quote for the Month

If we could see summer
through the eyes of a child,
we'd find magic.

Here is a testimonial from a Single Dad for Father’s Day.

"As a single parent it has been important for me to be a stable Dad. A part of this has been to make an aesthetic place that my children can come home to and be proud of. Picture Lady helped me do this.

"Recently I brought out the pictures I bought more than a decade ago. I like the images but some pictures were damaged and the frames were just no longer fashionable. The new pictures I had recently bought with the textured finish were so, so much better.

"So, with the help of the Picture Lady, I engaged in a project to resurrect my old artwork. I trusted her to choose new frames and treat the images with a textured finish. The result has been just short of phenomenal! I am so very happy with the enhancement to my favorite pictures.

"Picture Lady you are appreciated!"
