My 90 years old friend Mark asked me to help him to choose a painting he wanted to send as a gift to his son-in-law’s 70th birthday.
We went to an arts gallery and I recommended to buy a nice, colourful abstract painting by a local artist. Mark bought the painting and sent it to his daughter Maria who lived in Las Vegas.
When Maria received the painting she called Mark and told him that she liked it very much. She put the painting in the dining room and the room became brighter and more pleasant. She added that her husband Sergey did not know yet that the painting was a gift from Mark. She was going to tell him about it on his birthday.
In two days Sergey called Mark and thanked him for the gift.
A week passed and Maria called Mark. She was very upset. She told Mark…
This morning in a post I stated that people with children are very, very rich. Later I found my old post that proves that people with grandchildren are also very, very rich. I decided to reblog it for you.
Long time ago I saw a painting. It was just a declining brown line on the white canvas.The author of the painting explained to me that it was a woman with a dog. Both the woman and the dog were outside the painting.
I am not an artist. I’ve never played golf. But I enjoyed walking two courses in the early mornings and in the evenings and seeing how people played golf for many years.
Here, in Pocono Manor, the last step of the golf course is very difficult for many players. It has a pond in the middle of it. Each season many golf balls find their peace in the pond.
I find my peace just looking at the pond at any weather. It’s always beautiful, but it was magical one day when there was fog in the area. Unfortunately, I did not have camera at that time.
However, I have camera now and I want to share with you my photo of the pond. I took the photo from the Manor Drive. Golfers are shooting from the left (outside of the photo) and the last hole of the course is on the right (you can easily imagine it).
