I’ve been back in Mathews, Virginia, for a few wonderful days by the Bay, and the Canada geese have rewarded me by coming by a few times a day with their families. They seem to love us and our distribution center (P. Buckley Moss Galleries, Ltd.). There’s lots of grass for them to pick bugs out of.

I got to ride my John Deere for a few hours cutting grass and walk with my friend Nancy in the morning. Work time has been great—the light for painting has been wonderful. The trees are growing, and I can’t see my neighbors’ house anymore. I’ll be headed back to Radford via Waynesboro this weekend and will miss my friend Gilbert’s 90th birthday. He and another friend Robert are having a joint birthday breakfast in Robert’s garage. My neighbor George gave me some of his delicious young lettuce—he shares his garden, as do all my neighbors. Now, I’m off to the mountains. All is well here in Mathews, and they don’t really need me. I have a group of efficient women running the distribution center.
I’m thrilled with the new gallery in Blacksburg. Signs will be going up on the building soon. I’m also looking forward to being in downtown Waynesboro with another lovely building. Our last show at the Museum will be July 11-13; then it will be moving time. Come say farewell to our beautiful Museum and grounds. The office of the P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education will also be moving downtown, location to be announced soon.
Many thanks to all who have sent birthday cards and good wishes. What fun to go to the mailbox every day and find a million cards. The older I get, the more good wishes I get. I want to give a special thanks to the Central Iowa Chapter of the P. Buckley Moss Society, which made a $500 donation to the Foundation in honor of my birthday!
