Bob will be having a show of his art, in an attempt to divest himself of all of it, on Nov. 22 at the Cozy Dog in Springfield, IL. Bob sketching in the Afton Station guest book on Sept.8, 2009
Bob is an incredible artist with a style all his own. Here's one page of a huge, detailed birds-eye-view map of Route 66 which he drew. __________________
Update on my Halloween horror: Shortly after I got home from dialysis this afternoon a nice looking young man rang my doorbell and when I went to the door he said "Um, Ma'am, I think I may have scared you to death on Friday night". Uh, yes, that is putting it mildly. Well, it turns out he's my next door neighbor! They just moved in a couple of weeks ago so I'd never seen him before thus had no way of identifying him. He was very sheepish and extremely apologetic. As I'd suspected, he was coming home from a law school Halloween party and was stinkin' drunk, came to the wrong house, and he said that's all he remembers. He woke up in jail a few hours later and now he has to face a judge, whom the police said will probably give him community service. He's a law student so he's a little worried about the incident going on his "permanent record". I'm convinced that he's really a nice person. I told him he might want to lay off the booze from now on, because if I'd had a gun, he might be dead. Oh, he dropped his entire set of keys in my yard that night. We found them and he was very grateful for that. I didn't bother to tell him about the language he was using while he was throwing himself against my door. Case closed!
