Cheryl was in town so oh goodie we all got together for dinner at The Sherman Room.
This picture looks just like The Sherman Room, from the ’60s, folks drinking Manhattans in the red leatherette banquettes before they order their steak and baked potato. They have a small bowl of iceberg lettuce for a salad, and except for the mushrooms in butter for your steak don’t ask for vegetables. They don’t have any.
Each student made one of the buildings. Kaitlin’s is Mia’s Art Studio modeled after the art studio where she takes classes.
A story: Monday morning Lynn and I did a big ‘mountain’ climb at the ranch. We went at a slow and steady pace on a steep up-up-up for 45 minutes and then a short flat stroll and then a steep down-down-down. Here it is Wednesday night and my calves are still so sore I can hardly stand up from a sitting position. Ouch.
Driving north for this year’s visit to The Ranch I stopped off in Santa Barbara for a few hours with Nancy and Michi and then continued on to Paso Robles.
I had never spent any time in Paso so I thought it give it a stroll. The wineries here are building their reputations and as you’d expect restaurants and tourists follow. This is the town square/park. I liked this tree but that was about it for the park.
Kaitlin has been running an Art Club on Tuesday nights and sometimes on other nights too. She’s done it twice when I’ve been there and it is So Much Fun!
Both times she has designed a project for us to do. Tonight we made self-portraits and displayed them as you see here. It’s so delightful I’m just grinning the whole time. Kaitlin made the plan, she passed out the materials, she encouraged and praised all efforts. I am already looking forward to my next chance to attend Art Club!
