Each week I stay a few days with my mom to help her. The weather there is much hotter than where I live. The days reach 100 degrees. Although the evenings are still warm, it’s enjoyable to be outside. Here are a few shots taken one evening after the weather cooled down a bit. The tree on the left in the first photo reminds me of a castle.

My mom has some old newspapers from the small town where she was born in Minnesota. They are from 1925.  The illustrations for the advertisements are wonderful. The dresses show the styles of the 1920’s.

Besides needing a fashionable hat, it seems gloves were an essential part of your fashion statement,  the latest style having “cuffs”.

Here is a recent sketch I made while reminiscing on the Camino. I used a vintage music sheet I got at a flea market.

More roses from my mom’s garden.
