I love this view of the hill. The city is nearly invisible. But it is right there, all around Glassford. The history of this hill is interesting. It is an extinct volcano. There is a cave, a lava vent, at the top. In the video. when he zooms in, Mingus is on the right.
The hill is named for Col. William Glassford. In the 1880’s he helped form an advanced system of heliograph stations to monitor the movements of Apache Indians, U.S. military and civilians. Seven men including one cook were stationed on Glassford Hill.
I ordered these back issues over a month ago. The information did state that it would take up to four weeks for delivery. Stampington and Company is selling back issues at clearance prices. I was anxiously awaiting their arrival. I have already started reading three others, conveniently located next to my reading chair.
I’ve gone and done it again. I signed up. Christiane Drieling invited me to take part in her Art On 45 event. It will be my first juried event. Selected works will be auctioned to raise money for NCLAC (North Central Louisiana Art Council). To aid in their commitment to establish a valuable art program at the local Boys And Girls Club.
THe deadline is January 4th. Plenty of time. Ha ha ha. Anything goes. I have a few ideas already.
This weekend for me is about tech chores. Updating my shops and dealing with some website issues as well. Checking things off of my to-do list. I finally finished organizing my Pinterest boards. I started it last September. Yup, during the 30 day challenge. The boards I use as inspiration were a wreck. Now I can easily find what I am looking for. I know, I know. I am organizationally obsessive. Ha ha.
One last view for you. This from a few nights ago. Gotta paint this sometime.
Enjoy your weekend!
