How to keep your supper warm....

"On Saturday Night Aunt Doris Went to the Bingo and Forgot
 to Take the Clothes Off the Line"
Original,Mixed Media by Cara & Pam

How to Keep Your Supper Warm : Place two sleepy kittens
on top of it and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
In the gallery....
KNOCK!  KNOCK! KNOCK on the door! I answer the door.
Me: Hi!
Lovely Lady holds up one of our 5 x 8 brochures and points to the front.
Lovely Lady: Do you have any idea where this place is?
Me: Ha! Are you joking?
Lovely Lady: No, I’m not joking, there really is a place called The Grumpy Goat Gallery.
I look at the brochure and the huge photo of our house that is on the front.
Me: But you are here.
Lovely Lady: Yes, I know I am here, but I am trying to find THIS place.
Me: But this IS the place you are looking for. This IS the Grumpy Goat Gallery.
Lovely Lady is amazed and exasperated.
Lovely Lady: Well, I don’t  know how on earth I ended up here. What are the chances?
Me: The chances were slim. What luck.
I contemplate telling her that we are closed, but can imagine the conversation that THAT would spark...
Lovely Lady: How can you be closed when the door is open and you are here?
Lessons of the day:
Sometimes when you are looking for something, you find what you were looking for without even knowing it. 
Sometimes when you find what you thought you were looking for but don’t realize it, you realize that what you found was what you were looking for in the first place.
Sometimes when you are closed, you are actually open.

Thank you So much Martha Witcher from Thistle and Rose Handweaving in Utah
who sent Rose Nylund the most beautiful note in a gorgeous hand-made card.
She has put it up above her bed, in a place of honour!

Dearest Rose,

I am very happy to hear that you like your handwoven card. Hope you like the row of little goaties I wove on the front.

When are you taking reservations at your B & B?
