Something to treasure forever.

May your father in law rest in peace.

Lou, that's nice stuff and if you can come up with the money, you should have them framed in simple black or gray frames with an acid free mat. I would start with pieces that are signed. He had a good eye for detail and as I said, it is nice work.

What a talented artist.

My reader is the same way. If I post in the afternoon, I get it in my inbox late in the evening.

As for Google, who knows. It marked all of my Reader as read yesterday. I was not happy. (Hugs)Indigo
