My dear PB-ers

Sorry to have been out-of-communication so a few days.

I made an emergency trip to Massachusetts for a family funeral and this is the first time I have had a chance to get at a computer.  My brother-in-law passed away within a week of a bad fall.

I will be back in action by the middle of next week.

Hopefully, there will be some time for me to check on all your work while I am gone, but not until after Thursday.

Miss you all.

aloha

Thank you, everyone.  We had a lovely wake and funeral.  It was so good to have all our friends and family around us.

It is snowing right now, so pretty to see it.  Haven't driven in snow for 28 years so I may not venture far today.

Keep painting and drawing, everyone. 

Miss you all.

I am glad all went smoothly. Keep warm and be careful when venturing out. If you get stuck inside today..... sketch us a snow scene!  ;)

Cheers, Val

Condoleances Mea  :flowers:
We just miss each other, I left just before the snow.  But I was hoping all would improve and that you would not have a reason to make that trip.
Cheers, Annie
