tend to head down to the dock more often in the mornings these days.
Especially now for what I call my "September Zen". It's a moment of my day
to breathe deep and remind myself that everything is right in our world.
That's especially handy during the current
political climate. We used to watch the news channels a lot.. way more than
we should. For a time I thought I would have to up my dose of blood pressure
medicine. But a good friend of ours bought us a Roku for Christmas last year
and we discovered Netflix. Then we discovered 'binge' watching, and thus our
viewing was turned away from the horror show and on to other silliness not
based in reality.
Kathy still set's up behind me at the dining
table, working on her crafty ideas, while we lose ourselves in fantasy
worlds of doctors, neurotic nurses, high tech crime fighting (and zombies
for me after Kathy goes to bed). We still kept up with the news over our
lunch hour, but as we entered September even that changed. Now I just check
the headlines through the internet and skip the current clown show of
pundits and hyperbole.
Even with our binge watching, Kathy's time at
the dining table is productive. Her latest work is another coloring book,
but this one has a great twist.
the "Route 66 Postcard Coloring Book"... 5x7 postcards you can color, remove
and send to your friends and fam, or just enjoy while you're exploring
America's Mother Road.
We are taking
delivery of our first batch this week and hope to get a few Route 66
businesses on board with having them in stock for travelers, in addition to
them being in our online General Store. Our way of celebrating the 90th
Anniversary of Route 66 this year. [If you are a 66 business that might be
interested, or know of one, please let us know].
If coloring postcards aren't your bag of tea,
but you like Route 66 images and artwork, don't forget we have plenty in our
Photo Print Shop, available in many sizes of prints, print wraps and
canvas.. you can even put our pictures on a coffee mug, mouse pad and more.
Just click on the photo you like, choose buy and then browse our selection
of products. Makes a great gift for the road warrior on your list.
Thanks again for your continued support!
Kathy and I are blessed to have you in our lives and send our best wishes
for a wonderful fall season.
