Gilead’s Party   Leave a comment


I went to a wine and cheese party at an artist’s house. We’ve been friends for some 20 years now, and this is the first time I’ve ever seen his house. Heck, he has never seen mine. I wanted some pix because it is my belief that all artists surround themselves with art and cool stuff. ¬†Artists’ homes are just marvelous places to visit.

It was also an art sale. I bought a coloring book, Gilead’s Kickstarter feat.

The food table–15 different cheeses, 3 different crackers, assorted nuts, and healthy vegetables.

(This is where I got my 3 veggie servings for the day.)

I don’t know the guys in the foreground, but this is really a picture of Stellar, Gideon’s wife, the lovely lady in the background. She’s in the kitchen guarding the wine. She poured some for me. Yum!

Jason, Emma, and assorted colorful octopi. Gilead says the tentacle pix are popular and he sells a lot of them.

More tentacles!
