So we had the M and P unit up for my show at the Gallery at Serenbe. It was Mothers Day weekend and it was my first gallery show. Come December it will be 4 years since I started painting and selling those paintings. I have always wanted to be approached by galleries and ask to be part of a show. Finally my friend Mary ask me to be part of a show down at Serenbe. Mary wanted to have me and Tim Mosby, an artist in the Serenbe area, team up, fill her gallery with our art, tell everyone to come by Saturday and buy art. And, eat BBQ. And that's about the way it went down.

Tim took my art and laid it out around the gallery. He then went to his barn/studio grabbed pieces he thought would look good with my stuff and hung the whole gallery. It looked great and we both sold a lot of art.

We also took the M and P unit all over town, quickly.

Local 3 for an awesome dinner. Soft shells. Mussels. Craw fish and sausage on risotto. A broad pasta with fava beans, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and mushrooms. Duck meatloaf. Panko fried flounder in a lobster stock. Braised short ribs /kimchi. Martinis, bourbon tasting. Need I SAY MORE?

Saturday night we ate at the Feed Store where Patrick made us martinis with his favorite vodka, 360. We ate shrimp and grits, Frito Misto [fried soft shell CRAW FISH, fried pickles and
onion rings] and for the third visit in a row Lil Lady ordered wings on a sweet potato waffle, smothered in sorghum syrup and butter.

We also managed to work in a pound of craw fish and shrimp poboys earlier in the day Saturday.

And, a couple friends from Hoover, Al. showed up at the gallery opening, that was nice.

And, now, M and P unit are home, Hoover is back in their house and me and the Lil Lady are on the front porch eating craw fish and drinking beer.
