Frank Burns, "It is nice to be nice to the nice."

About 3 to 5 years ago I was talking with one of my neighbor's daughter and she said that she was looking @ some Georgia O'Keefe stuff ... she would have been 11 or 12 then .... so I lent her a book with a bunch of O'Keefe pictures in it and well today I noticed that she had done a multi colored chalk pastel drawing of a flower and put it in the book when she returned it. It is awesome. So I went and got a frame and gave it back to her and her family.

She turns 16 or 17 this December. I hope she keeps up her artwork. She is taking on line college and Sr. level high school work now and she loves to walk my young lab too.

Btw I am also giving her the Georgia O'Keefe book too.

Sorry to ramble.

1. I love Georgia O'Keefe. I got to go to the

museum in Santa Fe. Some of her pictures were provocative? The ones Id seen before were just flowers. What two wonderful gifts!

6. Being a Giver is very rewarding.

You are a good neighbor, as is she.
