We had a long long drive but it was exciting to see the
St. Louis arch! We had been up in the arch a few years
ago so we decided not to do that again.
We took an excellent Trolley Tour of the city.
And then visited and toured The Cathedral Basilica of St Louis.
Fabulous mosaics from floor to ceiling.
We finished our sightseeing day with dinner at
"Sweetie Pie's" They have a reality show and
Linda was pretty excited to go there. She even
got to see Tim. They were filming while we ate.
Thursday was my teaching day at two elementary
schools in Belleville, IL. I painted apples all day!
The show was OK. Not quite as good as I had hoped
but the expenses were huge so it took a lot of paintings
to sell just to turn a profit. While I was honored to be
accepted (picked only 105 artists/craftsman out of over
1000 applications) I do not think I will return, but Linda
may have other plans in mind! I got pretty nervous when
she questioned artists about the shows they do in CO and
So we returned safely with no issues and unpacked, laundry,
repacked and are ready for this weekend.
