Jenns theme was what would you do if you won the lottery?
After much thought I decided that I honestly dont really like to travel on planes and I love the USA...honestly do....That if I won the lotter I would sell my house buy a big orange motorhome..can you see it...and travel all over the US with my kids...How cool is that..That would so do it for me...

I am on my way home and waiting at the airport with a pretty long layover in Phoenix...so I thought I would right about my experience the last four days...I am sure I will have many more stories to tell later too...First let me say that if you ever get the opportunity to attend an art retreat like this one unearth retreat . The kind were you get on an airplane or drive real far to meet together with a group of woman you have never met before and make art...It sounds scary hu...It is scary and it takes a-lot to do it...but this being my second retreat I have to say I had the most magical creative,spiritual experience of my life at these events...

The church organist,
Was in her eighties
And had never been married. She was
admired for her sweetness
And kindness to all.
One afternoon the pastor
Came to call on her and she showed him
into her quaint sitting room.
She invited him to have a seat while
she prepared tea...
As he sat facing her old Hammond
The young minister
Noticed a cut glass
bowl Sitting on top of it.
The bowl was filled
With water, and in the
Floated, of all things, a
When she returned
With tea and
They began to chat.
The pastor tried to stifle his
About the bowl of water and its
strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and he could no longer
' Miss Beatrice ', he said,
'I wonder if you would tell me about
this?' Pointing to the bowl.
'Oh, yes,' she replied, 'Isn't it
I was walking through
The Park a few months ago
And I found this little package on the
The directions said
To place it on the organ,
Keep it wet and that it would prevent
the spread of disease.. Do you know I haven't had the flu all winter.
