Karen’s Commentary: First, thanks to our cousin Annie in Phoenix for two big envelopes stuffed with cut-out coupons. Second, my husband Ted and I went to see the Traveling Vietnam Wall, and what an experience it was! I never dreamed it would have such an impact on me as I knew no one who was killed in the Vietnam War. When I got right up next to it, the overwhelming sadness hit me like a ton of bricks, and Ted was just as affected as I was. Cars with the names of all the 9-11 victims on them were there, too. What a fantastic tribute to those who gave everything.
Darlene’s Commentary: The Highway 62 Open Studio Art Tours is growing every year, and allows the artists and community to come together in mutual appreciation. What a great idea! I’d love to tell you about the artists and their work, but unfortunately I became ill on Friday, and fearing to spread whatever virus or bug that I’d managed to catch, I decided to stay home. Bummer! When I was home frumping because I had to miss everything, an idea popped into my swollen mind: Wouldn’t our community center be a wonderful place to have a show for local artists to display their work and meet their neighbors? I think so.
