  1. this was great – and I love that painting. Look at me! the little noodle at the TOP of your comment section. (I’m doing a happy dance). Sorry to miss your other posts – time to catch up.

    • Top. Bottom. I don’t care, as long as you swing by the patio for a poem now and then…and a rest in your yellow chair. The one with your name on it. 🙂 Have a wonderful week, Sue! ~Lori

  2. A Monday in Cottage Grove isn’t quite the same thing. Maybe if I went for a stroll with my dog, my parasol and possibly a small, agile monkey. Delightful poem and painting Lori!

  3. Love your poetic interpretation of such a beautiful painting. Great job, Lori!

  4. Chicago – my favourite American city. And my favourite place in Chicago … the Art Institute. This brought back a flood of such happy memories. Thank you for always bringing us something very special here.

  5. I’m happy the poem brought back memories of pleasant times, Jacquie. Thanks for coming all the way over to the Midwest for a poem. I’m delighted to hear from you!
