We had to fight Libby Watts Jordan, Frank Lloyd Wright/Rosenbaum home/museum director to "borrow" the Phil Campbell table for the weekend. It's been on display at the Rosenbaum Museum gift shop. It will be on display at the Museum of Alabama's grand opening ceremonies in Montgomery all day Saturday.
Please come join in on the celebrations. 9am to 5pm Montgomery.
We are kinda bonkers over recycling around here. Now this one I'm getting a kick out of. 16 or so sets of shelving came from one of our local huge success stories, Books-a-million. I've had them for years, but just now putting them to some pretty great use. Hopefully their super success vibe will spread up here with us in Lexington.
So good getting back to work after the freeze out. Our friends from the North get a huge kick out of just how a little snow and ice totally shuts us down down here. I have to admit, we have no clue how to handle it. Well, other than ramming into the car or nearest pole.
Still haven't gotten our dust collector back up on it's feet. We'll regroup and try again today.
I just ran across this song/poem, and thought it was a perfect venue begin sharing the word for our GRCRR memorial paddle. It will be July 19, "bout a quarter till nine", and take place at the location on Cox Creek Parkway where the race began for years.
If you wrote this song in the '80's, let me know and you'll win one of the original bumper stickers. If you know what the last verse (that i didn't include here) was, let me know and you win one of the original award pins from the race.
What fun it was to share a first tour of our new studio with our dear friends Chiong Chen, UNA's art department chair, along with Nannette Robbins and David Cassady. Although David's up here daily, it was Nannette's first visit. I think I almost talked her into a wedding in the cotton gin. Where ever it is, i have a feeling bells will be ringing soon,
We've talked about cranking up the Great Cypress Creek Raft Race (from the 80's) for years.
For liability reasons it just can't happen.
No home made rafts this decade, But I sure think we can paddle our kayak or Canoes and remember and laugh about one of many local's favorite historic events.
saturday July 19, first Saturday of the Handy music fest "around a quarter till 9" my dogs and I will begin the historic 2 hr+ paddle. Any friends that would like to join in would be more than welcome. Bring old pics if u have them. Maybe we can even have some bbq or ? Waiting for us.
If u "played" any role in the GCCRR of the 80's, if u entered it or one of the crazy events / competitions afterward, if you r sick of your parents talking about it, or if u r hot Saturday July 19 and would like to cool off, I've got one thing to say to u
"come on down" and join in the fun, and help us celebrate one of the areas beautiful natural resources.
Again- no sponsors, no event; no canons, no Coober Peedy - join me for a memorial paddle down the Great Cypress Creek.
