We had to cancel the show in Ft. Lauderdale this weekend. We've been in some pretty tough weather conditions over the years, so the windy and cold conditions of a winter morning didn't scare us, but other circumstances combined to make it impossible to go. My deep I apologies to anyone who expected to see me there. As a consolation prize I had a nice studio visit from some collectors who come to visit when they're in town. They love my work, so it's like being surrounded by hugs while they're here!
It's quite common on Marco Island for people who have a surplus of lemons or other citrus bounty to place a basket of the excess by the door inviting visitors or customers to take what they can use. We picked up a couple of these fruit from a basket by the door of someone we were visiting. It was completely new to me and I just had to try one.
