Retreat!

Todd Lockwood flew in late last night. We were supposed to spend today doing fun New York things, like visiting museums and such. Instead, we were held captive in Greg Manchess' apartment waiting for Delta to drop off Todd's lost luggage, including all of his painting supplies. What a pain. It was the only full day he had to explore the city. Instead, we hung out and watched a lot of Buffy the Vampire Slayer...Which is a good day for me but not what Todd was expecting, I'm sure.

Todd has come into town a week before his painting demo at the Society to take advantage of a working retreat organized by my friend Dan Dos Santos. Dan found a B&B with a barn-turned-meeting space up in the Berkshires -- he talked them into a nice price and then invited a dozen artists to come on out. The group will include Boris Vallejo, Julie Bell, Scott Altman, Dave and Tony Palumbo, and a bunch of others. The idea is to get lots of work done while still having time for light hiking, reading, and Pictionary....Or at least that's the plan. In the end, I'll be just as happy to fall asleep in a hammock for much of the day.

Way to show Todd a good time.

I shouldn't point fingers. I spent the day working and watching Battle Star Galactica. I'm all caught up!

Looking forward to seeing you in the Berkshires!

sometimes you can go to earn the Pirates of the Burning Sea Gold for your own life and you can also get a lot of happiness in the game if you play the game well. you can brush the potbs gold to upgrade and then you are very strong. You think that you want to play the game well and then you can get the potbs Doubloon for your own. you can earn the potbs money alone and you can give some for your friends; it can make you very happy I think. As long as you play the game you can go to buy potbs Doubloon as the rewards in this game.
