We saw the Kids in the Hall Live at the Hard Rock Ampitheatre at Universal Studios. I really like that venue - it's fairly small (which I like, it's not one of those huge 80,000 people arenas where you can't see anything!) and personal, and very nice inside. The "Kids" were FANTASTIC as always! It was a great show, they did some classic skits, and then about 75% of the rest was all NEW material, which was hilarious! It was so cool, almost like I'd stumbled upon a couple of episodes of the show I'd somehow missed or something. Ihave the DVD set and know all the skits almost by heart, so it was a real treat to see new stuff as well as old.
Before the show, we went to Jimmy Buffett's "Margaritaville" bar and got wonderful drinks. Gotta love Jimmy Buffett =)
In other news - my sister Kachina (sunkachina) and her children Theo and Ellie are participating in the Heart Walk up in Kansas City to raise money in the fight against Heart Disease. Theo is only 4, and Ellie is only 2 - I think it is really cool that they are doing an event like this so very early in life, and I want to encourage them!
If anybody has a little extra change to donate for their Heart Walk fundraiser (very good cause - I'm sure most of us have known somebody affected by heart disease) - you can visit their donation site here:

Let me see - what else is new....
Mostly I've been working on a new project - a new direction for some of my artwork - basically a combination of 3-d and 2-d artwork, involving a lot of wood work, sculpting, casting, powertools and more (Matt is helping a lot, hehe). I should have my first piece finished up tomorrow or the next day - so be on the lookout!
In the meantime, I have some three original cute little 4"x6" OSWOA™ paintings!
OSWOA™ stands for "Original Small Work of Art" - if you search OSWOA on eBay you'll find lots of actual original artworks from great artists - all the same size - 4"x6" - that is a great size because it is a standard photo size, perfect for photo albums, photo sleeves, frames, etc. These are actual, original paintings - NOT prints of any kind. I have three of them for you today: "My Pet Bumblebee," "Tiny Sugar Skulls," and "A Dolphin Friend," - all are ORIGINAL acrylic paintings on 4"x6" sheets of cotton canvas (larger than my usual "mini paintings"). Due to OSWOA™ rules, the auctions must start at $9.95 instead of my usual .01 penny auctions, sorry about that! No worries though, I will have some penny-auctions soon too. Each is up for a 7 day auction up on eBay - ending on Friday, May 30th at 7:20PM -7:33PM Central Time and you can see them below (scroll down to the bottom of my "Originals" page or click on the OSWOA link on the menu to see them!:
