How I Got There

Dannys
Last night driving down Highway 99 near Gerber (CA), saw this building (this version in my mind). I stopped and learned that the building was originally part of an almond ranch; then it was Danny’s BBQ – named after the owner’s son, Danny – who lost his life in the war. After it was a restaurant, it was sold and became a Card Room. Now stands vacant and dilapidated.
Here is the photo that Ana took for me while I was getting the history of the place from the current owner:

I added “Danny” (a photo of my Dad when he was home between being in the RAF and joining the US Army Air Corps.)

Used Photoshop & OnOne software. Hey, you can’t there from here!

Philosopher
Part of my series on “Wot’s Going on in a Cat’s Head” Acrylics on hand made paper. Shirley, you don’t expect me to explain what is going on in this cat’s mind. He’s a philosopher.
