When Elaine told me she had been accepted in the Salida Arts Fair, I was, well, I was delighted and sad at the same time. I was delighted for Elaine. Elaine loves to be included in art shows.

I was sad because if Elaine is accepted in an art show, I’m accepted into an art show. Elaine is happy. Me, not so much.

The day (Friday) started out great. The twins helped with the packing . They were expecting an unplanned mini-vacation. They were excited and getting along.
