(July 6, '09) Lorna, my cute, jolly and dependable wife came in from work yesterday - - and as usual, tired. But still, she was in good spirit. When I was asked what was left to be done for the day, I answered that if we were going to attend NAFAUM that night, Marilyn asked me that I fetch her so she could join too. I was a bit tired too from having resumed working on my pastel sketches. NAFAUM is really from July 5-9, daily from 9AM-10PM) - - but I have neglected my artmaking since I started working on their cover and program for the past weeks. Because of this, I decided not to participate in all its activities but to go there only after Lorna would have come home from work. There's also ample time for me to meet with some old friends who I had not seen for decades! Back to Lorna - -after making a few important calls, Lorna said "call her so we could go" - - so, I did. Marilyn, as in the past days complained of having pains with her left hand caused by a sore thumb. It was the pain's peak that night so she had to change her mind about NAFAUM. So, I then drove to NAFAUM (about 30mins to Midway Dr., TX) for dinner and for some Texan lessons in Square and Round Dance with all the NAFAUM delegates. There I met with a lot of old friends (literally, hehe).
