I have been busy painting this summer, but am having trouble updating my web site, so if you check my on line galleries occasionally, I apologize for not have something new for you to look at. Hope to have the issue rectified shortly.
I have work out at several venues this fall and an opening reception coming up next week at Zapitista restaurant. I will be exhibiting 8 works along with Sid, another Glenview Art League member, and it should be a good time. Zapitista is an upscale Mexican restaurant and will be providing the appetizers and cocktails for the reception. Yumm. It is located in the mall at the corner of Willow Rd and Waukegan Rd near the Home Goods Store.
Opening Reception Thursday August 22 6-8 PM
992 Willow Rd
Hope to see you there,
Peace & Love to all,

Springtime Class of '70 Re-Union Event
April 21, 2013
You are invited to our Springtime Class of '70 two-act re-union event next Saturday April 27th.
First, cheer on our Class of '70 - 200 Yard Freestyle relay at GBS - 2:30 PM and/or join us for dinner and drinks at Hackneys - 5:00!!!
Representing the GBS Class of '70 is Jon Barth, Rusty Cobb, John Neff and Bob Spaulding with Bill Cherf as alternate at this "Wild and Crazy Big Dance": the Illinois Masters State Swimming Championship. This will be held at none other than the Glenbrook South H.S. Natatorium on Saturday April 27th. The relay team is attempting to set a GBS Class of '70 - 200 Free Relay World Record in the 55-64 age group category, maybe even win a coveted State Championship Swimming Gold Medal to boot.
Brief swim bios on this Motley Swim Crew:
Jon Barth: Willing to sacrifice his body for the good of the team. He recently showed off his swimming prowess and almost drowned. Jon is a consummate business man always looking to protect his most prized assets as he asked: Should I wear a Jock Strap? (NO!), what about swim goggles? (YES!)
John Neff: Pulled out of a comfortable swimming retirement of over 40 years. He was a remarkably good GBS Breaststroker, he swims the same as he did when he last hung-up his GBS H.S. swimsuit (hopefully he'll have purchased a new swimsuit by then.)
Rusty Cobb: The perennial athlete who claims to swim 1 KM / day!
Bob Spaulding: Watch him in his annual chase for that proverbial carrot of winning an Illinois Masters Swim Championship. What will happen if he actually wins and eats his coveted carrot? Will he hang-up his swimsuit and goggles for good? Nobody knows...
Bill Cherf: Flying in from Denver for this wild and crazy event. Bill will be at poolside wildly cheering the relay team on, ready to jump in and save the life of any drowning relay member, putting his own life at risk. Wow, what a guy!
The swim event will be around 3:00 PM, so get there by 2:30 under the GBS Class of '70 banner (you can't miss it). After the swim event, all of you are invited to Hackney's at 5:00 for dinner, spirits, and more fun. $20 for dinner at the door, run your own tab for spirits.
for Hackney's reservations. The first 35 will have inside seating, the rest of us will dine under the stars on this warm (relatively speaking) evening. Looking forward to seeing you once again!!!
An Invitation from Jude Kitts
Just a quick note to share the news that next week will be the beginning of the
first ever solo showing of my artwork. Pretty exciting stuff.
I've attached a flyer with all the information and hope that those of you who
live in the vicinity will be able to attend the opening.
Other than getting everything framed and ready for the show, I have been busy
walking dogs (my source of steady income these days) and just had cataract surgery
yesterday. Things are still a bit blurry, but I'm told that when it clears up, my vision
will be better than ever. I also recently redesigned my web site if anyone wants to take
a peek. Of course, it already needs updating but here it is;
Hope everyone is doing well - staying happy and healthy.
Looking forward to seeing some of you at the opening,
Nonviolence: No Higher Calling!

I recently received a letter from Connie Ford-Pacheco about the Glenview Naval Air Station Museum and Challenger Learning Center that is being talked about.
We all have many memories, good and bad, about the Naval Base while growing up in Glenview. It was a part of our lives and the memories will always be with us.
Below is a link to the petition that is being circulated to help get this project off the ground.
Please take the time to sign the petition and be a part of what will be a great center of memories that we grew up with.
Have a wonderful Holiday Season.
