In Loving Memory of Tipsy

September 9, 1996 - January 29, 2011

Like Abby, you were my dog all your life. As with your sister, it was time to let you go. I'll always remember my amazement when I saw you scale the 6-foot private fence so you could go play with the neighbor dog. I hated seeing you barely able to climb the stairs. I miss you already, but now you and your sister are together again.

At the Blanton

I went to the Blanton Museum of Art on the University of Texas campus this afternoon. It was the last day of the exhibit Turner to Monet: Masterpieces from the Walters Art Museum. When I was finished seeing the special exhibit, I wandered upstairs to see the other pieces of art on display. I walked into one room, turning the corner to see the first piece on the wall.

And there was Frodo Baggins....

Seems I'm not the only one who think so ;-)

Peter Paul Rubens' "Head of a Young Man" is part of the permanent collection at the Blanton.
