I am just about ready to go to Paris! I "tricked out" my iPad for the trip....with a keyboard in the case....a gadget to upload camera photos, and a European adapted charger. Plus---apps installed for translating and practicing French. Oh, and a few movies and books in French. I didn't forget a Rick Steves travel book is loaded into the iPad, too! Hope I have everything I need!

It was a rare treat for me to share the opening day of the Nationals baseball season with my grandson, Griffin, a true Nationals fan. This is a picture of the team after the 2-0 win over Miami.
I also used the time to "brush up" on sketching from the tv screen....which used to be a favorite way to get free models---but some of them move a lot. I ended up with this, and the face is sort of generic. Interesting that the pose was easier to "compose" from several guys than the face was, but here it is. I wish I had photographed the sketch with no paint. I think it was actually a little more interesting. I started to do the crowd in the background, but ran out of time. Picture a sea of mostly red, with a little white....that is the effect.
And now...for true followers of the blog, pictures from the Easter egg hunt yesterday! Both girls and boys won! All winners....because of a tie. I was tempted to post only "my" team, but the guys look great as winners, too. We all had a lot of fun, joined by friend Melanie and her family.
