This is Tempo having lunch off a yellow plastic lid, on her placemat because she is still quite messy.
Yes, Tempo is growing. She has gained a pound. Doesn’t sound like much, but she was ten ounces, so she’s more than doubled her weight! She is also learning to pounce, run, jump, and climb. In fact, Ms. Who-dini can also climb out of her tub, hence the tape around the top edges. She’s a very smart cat. She is very entertaining, and occasionally very scary.
I love nothing more than hanging out at Dally in the Alley! I met up with wonderful friends and got to see a lot of beautiful people and beautiful things. Here’s just a sample.
My feet, Issy feet
Alan and Mark have a lot in common

The Northville Art House will hold an auction on Thursday, September 18th. They are auctioning off chairs painted by artists to benefit the Art House, and this is the second chair I painted. I call it rebirth.
The chair was another foundling, picked up by the side of the road. I felt it needed some Egyptian designs.
It is a pretty chair to start with, and I wanted it to feel just a little throne-like.
I had a lot of fun playing with the colors and shapes.
I called it rebirth because the lotus flower represented rebirth in ancient Egypt.
The Northville Art House is having a fundraising auction called The Painted Chair. I’m proud to say I will have two chairs in the auction. This is the first, I call it My Hoppy Chair.
I am a big fan of beer, and that has left me with a plethora of bottle caps. I decided to use them to cover an old chair.
I painted hop vines on the back and around the bottle caps.
The goats hanging from the back of the chair are from Celebrator Doppelbock, each bottle comes with a little plastic goat tied around the neck.
