Fourth Time's a Charm!
Aside from talking about clipping my daughters toe nails, this will be the most personal post to date. Sit down and enjoy my white trash family!

So.... How do I start this? I was just talking to my Mom (the best mom in the world just in case you're wondering) on the phone. My Mom and Dad are in the process of moving out of the house I grew up in and we were talking about the requisite garage sale they had planned with my sister for tomorrow. My Mom then breaks the news to me that they're not going to do the garage sale on Saturday because my sister decided not to do it. Before I could ask why, my mother says, that my sister doesn't want to get stressed out over the garage sale because she's getting married the next weekend. Now at this point I'm saying "whu?" and my mom just keeps going as if she just told me my sister had to do laundry or something. Now some of you would be excited and yelling "Tell me more!" if you just heard this news flash, but in my family it's a little different. You see, this will be my sisters fourth marriage. You heard it right folks 4! I guess I should also mention that she is only forty. I should also mention that the man she is marrying is still not finished with the community service he is serving for the last "encounter" with said sister, and to tell you the truth, I'm not sure if there is still a restraining order out on him or not. Ain't love grand, or should I say, ain't joint insurance policies grand?

Tiny Toenails
Have you ever clipped a one year old's nails? It's a frustrating, nerve-racking, but kinda fun process. That's if you have a willing participant. Lily lets me do it, but they're so tiny, that no matter how still she is, I can't help thinking I might get a little skin. So far, so good.

Oh, these are her feet at five months. I don't have a more recent picture.

First Fridays
OK, I've committed to showing the Vortex prints at the next First Fridays in Las Vegas at The Arts Factory. This time I hear the city has been pushing the event hard, so it should be a big turnout. As long as it doesn't rain again, they say to expect eight to ten thousand people! Is that number right? Holy Shit! Where are they all going to stand?! I hope a bunch of them stand in front of me with their wallets open this time while I feverishly wrap their newly acquired art in it's protective bubble wrap.
