One Week Until the Opening!

May 26, 2011


20/20 Vision: Travels Along America’s Accidental Highway is becoming a reality! A cool new banner hanging from the entrance of the Carnegie Center for Art and History even says so.

Jan recently delivered the photos to the Carnegie Center in New Albany, Indiana, where she got an early look at the gallery space. Everyone involved is excited and looking forward to the opening next Friday, June 3.

All told, this project was decades in the making. Now it’s just a matter of days before it comes together for all to enjoy.

Happy National Tap Dance Day!

Those who live in the Chautauqua region of New York point, with justifiable pride, to the area’s charm and beauty, the Finger Lakes wineries, the Chautauqua Institution…. Certainly they’re not lacking in a sense of humor, either.

Although Shoshoni looked like a ghost town, a sign in the drug store window announced an upcoming Cowboy Poetry Night.

“I get up at 2:30 in the morning to be here by 4. At 5 a.m., there’s always a trucker, and a few farmers for coffee and a bite to eat before going out in the fields. The retired guys with wives are still sleeping then, but they’ll come in later and meet for coffee. There’s never a time when we don’t have customers, which is why I like this job. I’m never off the floor more than 10 minutes total in a nine-hour shift.

“It’s the same old crowd, day after day. The same old conversations. I can always tell what time of day it is just by looking down the counter.”
