We had a ball with Martin’s Gallery and a very successful show. The Hanover (Pennsylvania) Area Historical Society is housed in the Warehime-Myers Mansion, which is where we unveiled my new print commemorating Hanover’s 250th birthday this year, Sestercentennial, Hanover, PA. The unveiling and reception was held Friday evening, and it was such fun to be in the beautiful mansion, which is featured in my print, along with the Hanover Market House and the Neas House.

Hanover and I celebrated our milestone birthdays together after my friend Cathy Gorsuch arrived at Saturday’s show with a surprise birthday cake for my birthday, which was actually last month. There is nothing like getting older—I’m getting a lot of mileage out of this birthday, and life is good!

I was in the company of such good friends and in a wonderful, cheerful atmosphere—a great place to have a show. It’s always a joy to meet lovely, new people and to reconnect with old friends. I always look forward to having breakfast with members of the Lake Marburg Moss Chapter of the P. Buckley Moss Society at the Dutch Country Restaurant when I’m in town.

My son-in-law Corrado, daughter Patty, son Chris, and I are in St. Petersburg, Florida, this week, packing up my studio, home, and gallery. It’s difficult moving out of a place that I’ve loved so much for so long, but I know that I’ll be happy wherever I am in St. Pete. Change is inevitable in life, but it brings new opportunities, too.
Next week, I’ll be back in Mathews, Virginia, ready to celebrate our Independence Day on the 4th of July. God bless our troops, past and present!
