Congratulations James!

Friday James got his masters degree from LSU. He didn't want to walk in the ceremony, so we celebrated at here at home with his brother and his wife. We had homemade pizza for dinner Friday, and Saturday morning James made French Toast for breakfast. These are a couple of pictures of a cake I made for him.

Saturday night the four of us went out to eat at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse. It was delicious and the service was top rate. It was the first time James and I had eaten there.

Saturday James I and went to Mobile, AL for the day. We went to see the Pompeii exhibit at the Exploreum. It was really interesting, but to cameras were allowed, so no pics. They had an IMAX theater there, and they were showing a movie about ancient Greece. The screen was all encompassing - like a planetarium.

After the movie and exhibit we went to see the USS Alabama at Mobile Bay.

Our Artwork Arrived!

While we were in Sedona, we spent one night browsing through the local art galleries. I was impressed, and sometimes it takes a lot to impress me in the art world. Not that I don't appreciate simple beauty, but I love it when you see something truly creative and imaginative, something different. I was awed with some of the sculptures we saw, but they were out of our price range. . .$40,000 and up. The last gallery we went in was one that I almost passed up. I didn't care for what was in the display window. It was full of weird cartoonish sculptures, but I decided to wander on in. I'm glad I did because we found a little treasure there. Click here to see what we bought.

It is not an original. It is a hand pulled lithograph reproduced from the original after Geisel's death per instructions that he left in his will.

It's at a framing shop right now. I'm not sure where it's going to hang yet.
