I wish I had a picture of us hanging out cloths together using her solar dryer.. She called me on my cell on my way out to her house in Benjamin, Utah and said that she was hanging out cloths. Tomasi only heard one part of the conversation, "okay, Mary, we'll hang out cloths together then". Tomasi said, "what does that mean, hang out cloths together?" Laughing....I've not hung out cloths in years and so that phrase didn't click with the his vision.. ha
Mary is an awesome artist....does gorgeous gourd art. I'm sure you'll be impressed by her gourds. go to

Here is Ofeina, Tomasi and Angelita and her husband Derek.
Here is a vase that was in the "fishie bathroom". it is made from found sea glass and if you look closely, a fish hook as well. Maureen and Dan have a great deal going on for Christmas. They ONLY GIVE ONE GIFT person (they had 7 children) and they MUST BE HOME MADE. Dan taught high school art and Maureen is her own kind of artist. I just thought this was VERY CLEVER.We had a little party from folks that used to live in PARK WARD in Payson, Utah over at Lavern & Ron Crump's House. A beautiful home out in the country. She had a fantastic set up for their chickens and I took a photo, but it disappeared in ether space. We had a sweet talking BBQ time with them. We so love our friends from Park Ward. Afterwards we followed Maureen and Dan to their new home in Payson, Ut. What a beautiful home and so taistfully decorated. She was R.S. Pres when we lived in Payson and I've loved her from the "get go!". She's from England and has soooooooooooo many stories to tell, she should write a book of her life!!! Here she showed me her most treasured possession. It is a porceline vase that her Dad got many years ago being a merchant marine.....she had packed it well before going on their last mission.....stored it....and FINALLY were able to get these things out of storage. It was at the bottom of the things and all broken up. Her son put it all back together again. just click on any of these photos and you can see it up close.
We went to stay a few days with Sarina and her darling 4 boys. the first thing they wanted to do is play with their granddaddy. He was making paper airplanes and then one of them said, "can you make a helicopter?
