Thought I better say I am still here.

Apart from being heavily involved -still - with yellow plastic ducks I am busy on other fronts.

All Saints Episcopalian Church at Strichen had its annual art exhibition.

It is a lovely wee church.  Balanced on all the ends of pews, on pews, on the shelf all the way around, up the pulpit and in front of the was packed with paintings and photographs.

I sold this one.

Stupidly sad to see it go!

I am now in the throes of arranging an exhibition.  This is our second which will be in Dalrymple Hall in Fraserburgh.  The three art groups who meet their weekly, at different times, together with the Photographic Society take over the hall for the weekend at the end of June.  Trying to sort out rotas, labels, hanging is a nightmare.

Here is me last year. And I still havent worked out how to have a wine glass holder on the 'chariot'......

Another Art exhibition looming at Mintlaw next week.

Oh - I have set on a pair of ladies who start next week cleaning our home.  My last experience of employing a cleaner was many years back when I worked full time.  Strangely there is a duck theme here too.  I had a collection of wooden ducks.  Over the weeks of her employment she managed to break off every beak from every duck.  Perhaps I should stick to plastic ones.

So I leave you with a photograph of a variety of signs down our lane with a yellow plastic duck in there somewhere. No prize for spotting it.

Although I would like to know what happened to the dead in the 19th century......

Jill you are a hoot! Thanks for making me laugh out loud. And I'm so pleased about your art-iness. Keep up the good work!
