What a day.

We had a great day today. It started with seeing the twins off to school and then we had old friends ( relatives too ) come visit us. We had snacks at the condo, went out for lunch ( Mexican ) and then spent the afternoon at the John and Dominique de Menil art museum. We enjoyed seeing the Picassos, Magrittes and the Jackson Pollocks, but I wish I had had my camera when we went into the chapel and saw Mark Rothko's paintings. You wunta believed it. There were three canvasses to the left, 3 canvasses to the right, and three canvasses in the center. Huge works about 10 feet by 5. All of them were black or dark purpley-black andWell, Jackson P is a stretch for me. Looking at dark canvasses and imagining seeing stuff is beyond my capacity........

The old friends ( relatives ) were Eric and Susan Muirhead. Bev's cousin Eric, his dad was Bev's uncle. He gained national fame back in 1977 ----- he was the Dr who participated in and oversaw the autopsy of Elvis Presley in Memphis. ( EP died of overdose according to Dr Eric M )

Any way, we go back a long way and we had a nice time talking, taking in the art and enjoying some nice wine..... it was so fun that none of us wanted the day to end.

But it did. But not before we had Cain Five (1998) and Shropshire Blue on whole grain French baguette.........followed by cigars on the patio.....

Lovely it was.

Here's a pic of the three of them.
