I am a retired fine arts teacher, sculptor/painter, writer, and a native Californian. I love my family,dogs, horses, movies, reading and music, probably in that order. I have been married forever to a very nice man who is nice to old ladies, dogs and children.


  1. Dear aunt Kayti, Love your writing. We leave on Tuesday for a week in Barcelona with Scotty Annie and the girls. Then off to the Swiss Alps for a week with Friends. Then off to Prague, Vienna and Budapest for a nine week tour – three nights in each city by railroad tour. Never thought this little farm girl would go on such an amazing trip.

    Today we planted our winter veggies in beautiful vegetable boxes made by adorable gardener Fernando. We just love him.

    Chris thoroughly enjoyed his visit with you all and said you were in good health and spirits.

    We are so sorry to not be at your 70th. What an extraordinary accomplishment! You are an inspiration to us all!!!

    Know that we love you and look forward to having you as our house guests soon.

    Be well – we love you so much💕

    Love to you and have fun at your party. See you both in October – Linda and Chris

    1. Hope you can go to the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. A must! In Prague at the end of the Charles Bridge is the Jewish Ghetto. Sobering but important to see, considering Teresienstat was on 14 km from Prague. Have fun!
