Bailey Heads for the Hills

Above my studio door.















Benjamin Franklin said that fish and visitors stink after three days. There was a slight odor that hung around Bailey but I’m not sure he smelled as bad as a three day old fish. He did eat all the fish that we had in our freezer and the couch will never be the same. He laughed when I showed him the James C. Christensen painting that hangs above my studio door. “The blind leading the blind” Yea that’s what it feels like sometimes. Bailey said it was time to head towards the mountains. He packed up his art supplies and checked which way the wind was blowing. He gave me the biggest bear hug I have ever had. When he saw the tear in my eye, he said he would stop by from time to time. I watched as he lumbered up the road toward the mountains. It’s always hard to have someone as big as Bailey as a guest in the house but I’ll tell you one thing. It was a lot easier to have Bailey around than when the triplets came to visit.
