Kelly: I'd luv to dine with your whole fam damily but not this trip. I
catch a plan from Buff to Motown to Cedar Rapids.
I read of that kid of yours in a fedora. Coooooool, way cooooooool!
I hope this new project you allude to is the opening of a
shop/showroom in an abandoned store front in the hard hit Rust Bucket
zone. Bad times for all often means good times for artists. Rents and
house prices become affordable and we are accustomed to living below
the line of poverty anyways so it appears that life is good for us. I
have read there are places in Motown for like the limit on your Visa
card. Maybe not such a nice hood though.
Gotta go get ready for a student of mine from yes 30 years ago that is
coming to buy a 12 place dinner service. She is a design consultant
and I can't wait to see her. I used to take my class to her grandpa's
house . Every square inch of it was carved, fllors, window sills,
talbles. He was a weird old Austrian that had a hunk of meat on the
table, a jug of wine, a knife stuck in the table. I taught Marketing
and had no real reason to take my class there other than I thought he
was the most perfect example of a man at 90 living the most creative
Tip of the lid to that kid of yours.
