#85 the letter "V" & a new magazine.

 I didn't get to this until just a short while ago, as I had lots of errands to run after my morning clase de español. When I got home, I had many business phone calls to make, then I had to spend time getting our flights for our big trip, then I had to make dinner, as I'd invited my son, and our NDL over. They didn't linger after dinner as they were tired, and so were we, BUT, I had to get to V. How this came to me, I don't know. But I'm happy it did.

I was waiting for my honey to get finished at his somewhat emergency appointment at the dentist, when I spotted this magazine. What a title! What a concept! What a combination! I had to see what the contents were and to my surprise, I found a very engrossing article about an artist in New Orleans (now deceased) that hardly anyone has heard of but did really nice work. His name is/was Noel Rockmore.
There was, also, a book review of Mark Richard's new book House of Prayer No. 2, which sounded really interesting. Who'd have thought that I'd find this magazine so interesting?  Not me.

My best friend's family definitely has a subscription to that magazine, and we laugh about it every time I visit them and see it lying around somewhere. The garden part is her mom, and the gun part is her stepdad. (Then again, this is the man who purposely met my fiance while shirtless and polishing his rifle so that he could intimidate him, so the Gun & Garden subscription was the least of my worries.) :)
