Franklin, I enjoyed your paintings on Dorsch's web site. How's that online anatomy book for artists coming?

Further more, what did you take to get rid of your cold? I think it's cousin has invaded me. Lemon and honey?

Thanks all.

Zicam, alternating daytime and nighttime Tylenol cold, multivitamins, probiotic with bifidus, and chewable C, constant fluids, and as much sleep as possible. I'm in it to win it.

I went to the opening tonight, and had a good time. The paintings were interesting and very beautiful. It was definintely worth the trip.

The Bethea show was very good. There will be a closing show on May 12 for those who missed the opening. For what it's worth, Snitzer showed up, but I'm not sure if he came to see the paintings or the installation work by another artist, Patrick Flibotte, which was also opening. Once I noticed he was there, I was not inclined to notice him any further.
