Jaunt Out West
I spent most of the week on business--the first part in San Francisco for a keynote speech for a global sales force summit. From there I flew to San Antonio for a presentation to business owners of audio/video/broadcast system integrators. Great folks all around.
Here are a few pics from walks around the Island.
Ospreys in Turmoil
Three doors down from our house there are a pair of ospreys trying to build a nest on top of a pole. Huge credit for effort, but their results are pathetic--take a look a their nest. In addition to their building, they seem to be continually fussing with other ospreys. Here are a few action shots.
Jan’s Awesome New Chest
For the third year in a row, Jan is donating a piece of her art to raise funds for the Calusa Land Trust. It will be auctioned off at the Annual Duck Race to be held Saturday, March 3 at Woodies in St. James City (www.calusalandtrust.org). If you are in SW Florida that day you ought to come--it is a hoot.
Here are a few pictures of the steamer chest that she is donating. Yes, I know I am biased, but it is really cool…makes you want to grab your sunglasses, charter a boat, and head for Cuba!
Also, four images of Jan’s other art pieces* have just been uploaded to www.janalexanderart.com.
*For example, one of her paintings is called “The Cover Up.” Years ago when I was dating a famous Italian model, this beauty painted her self-portrait for me, which I hung in our foyer. One time I came home from a business trip and it was gone--painted over by Jan in my absence.
See you next week after a week at home on the Island.
