Dorothy Retires!

Tomorrow will be Dorothy's last day to work as a receptionist at the Hastings Indian Hospital in Tahlequah.  Yesterday the office took her to lunch and had cake for her and her friend Laura who is also retiring.

I took this picture a few weeks ago of Dorothy at her desk.

It's the end of an era.

Quote of the Day

The primaries have been great for the economy.  Dimwitted billionaires are dumping money they don't need into the campaigns of people who can't win, providing much-needed jobs for ad writers, poll-takers and yard sign manufacturers.

Do you remember, at the depth of the recession, when Keynesians kept saying that we could jump start the recovery by just paying a whole bunch of people to dig holes and fill them back in? This is exactly the same thing! Keep going, Republicans!

It's warm. The grass is green and the trees are blooming. My mind is beginning to stir from the winter doldrums.  Here's what we've been doing lately:

Marley, Hunter, Jenna and I went to the creek and found some
good fossil specimens.

We celebrated Burk's birthday... well as Dorothy's and Jenna's.

I made this bed for Jenna's doll.  Dorothy made the mattress,
blanket, and pillow.

Dorothy dug out her old family pictures and arranged them
on the wall. I put some of my photo editing skills to work on
the oldest and most time damaged photos.

Then I took the picture above
and the one below...

And made this one:
