Happy Birthday Larry! Project Fun For John and I

9/8/14 Monday in Lebanon,PA (Hershey Campground-TT)

We got up late so the morning went quickly. I wrote/posted yesterday’s blog, did my light housecleaning and visited with Larry/Gail.

Then we got ambitious this afternoon: I cleaned screens, blinds and windows while John cleaned major tar spots off the rear end of the CRV with “Tarminator”. This product was recommended by our brother-in-law Gene and does it ever deliver!!!! Sap, all the bad stuff just wipes away. Then he waxed that part of the car. It feels SO good to stand back and enjoy the results of your efforts. Plus it was good exercise. We’ll be walking a lot at the RV Show (starts Wednesday) but we’ve done so very little since arriving to Hershey, I feel like my walking muscles are melting away.

Speaking of Hershey campground, here’s another view near our site. I was waiting for the sun, but was too busy cleaning to nab a photo then, so I got it the next day when it was all cloudy.

For dinner we all (Larry/Gail, Susan, Randy/Sue and John/Trish) went to an Italian restaurant: Gabby’s Italian Bistro, on a recommendation Randy got at the doctor’s office!! It was wonderful food and good prices and the sweetest waitress. Leftovers galore. Happy Birthday Larry. Life is Good.


About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
