I told you last week about my Canadian vistors. They are still with
me. They don't seem to be doing much about nesting, though. They spend
their time walking around the yard of my house and next door at Gran
Liz's House, as we still call the house she lived in when with us
in Mathews. I am still hoping they nest and bring up their young here.
Below is a photo of the members of the Board of the P.
Buckley Moss Society. Malcolm took the photo in Williamsburg at
last weekend's Board Meeting. Apart from Lance Allen, the Society's
Office Administrator, all those you see in the photo are volunteers
who give freely of their time to ensure the success of the Society.

I'm very pleased with the progress of the Society and
the help that it is bringing to children's causes across the country.
I want you all to know that any children's charity, anywhere in the
world, that can use a piece of my artwork to raise funds for their cause,
is eligible to apply to the Society for a donation. All they have to
do in their application is to show that they have a worthy plan for
generating the funds. Usually, this is by holding a raffle. If any of
you know of a children's charity that might be interested, please put
them in touch with the Society office, either by phone at 540-943-5678
or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
This Saturday I will be at the Buffalo Springs Herb Farm in Raphine,
Virginia, in the Shenandoah Valley for their May Day Celebrations. On
Monday Malcolm and I leave for Panama where I will have another three
weeks of uninterrupted painting time in my island studio.
Finally, for those of you who have joined me in the challenge to lose
ten pounds by June 30, I'm happy to tell you I'm on my way toward that
target. This morning I was down three pounds and, if I can only keep
up my reduced intake of pasta, I will make it by the deadline.
Meanwhile, I want to share the following quote from Werner Erhart that
was sent to me by Marie, one of my fellow weight loss challengers: "Incremental
improvement is better than perfection postponed."
Very best wishes.
