Art fort

The first photo is what I saw in front of my desk when I walked in this morning. (Actually, it's still what I see right now!) It's a piece of art strapped onto a rolling A-frame, which is what museum workers use to safely transport pieces within the museum.

I walked around to the front and saw that it was a very large oil painting!

This piece is called The Last Civil War Veteran and was painted by Larry Rivers in 1961. He is considered a Godfather of Pop Art and was acquainted with Jackson Pollock. I was told it's a new acquisition and an important piece.

It's really neat that it's here for the time being, but it's also like an extra wall in my office!

Ah, love

This photo was taken in my neighborhood. I don't know about you, but I think there is nothing more romantic than an apology/love letter, written in silver pen on a sidewalk sale sign....

It says: Amy, I love you (heart), I miss you. I trust you. I want to tell you I'm sorry for saying your name. It's just hard to talk to people about personal issues. I want us to kick it on the beach?? or do you have any throw backs?

Questions: What is a throw back? Why/how would Amy see this?
Hey Amy, I just want to let you know how I feel. Go to this sign that's taped up on a pole, yeah, the one for the sidewalk sale....I totally left you a note.
