My Dyslexia

Having the skill to write, spell, and punctuate has never been my strong suit. Growing up as a young child I was always nurtured to be creative and artistic which came naturally to me but I could never quite grasp written language. I now know that it's a learning disabilty with a name: DYSLEXIA.

I write from the heart and I make my best effort to get the words on the page properly but as you'll see I don't always succeed. I ask you to enjoy what I write and post but to be understanding and kind. Brian

Thanks to all for a great Birthday

Hello everyone and thanks for a wonderful birthday, Well as per normal, Kevin pulled all the wonderful people in my life together to share another year of growing old and marking the passing of time.

We started off the weekend with a great time at my aunt Dee's and uncle Jay's they hosted a pool party and in the true style of Indiana it was the storm of all storms. Thank god it waited until after we ate the wonderful food. Dee and Jay made my favorite pasta sauce and chicken on the grill. My mom brought some great salads too. And, we had some great company: my brother Shane and Shelly, his wife, my nephew Carson nephew, Mom (Debbie,) Dad (Rich,) cousin Becky, dear friends Chris and Al, Colleen and Paul and last, but not the least, Kevin and I. We were treated to not one but two of Kevin's famous, if not infamous, Italian Cream Cakes. He was afraid we were not going to have enough and he was right. With my family there is never enough cake.

On Sunday he invited my dear friends Sally and Tim. Sally came for the day and Tim came to visit later in the evening for dinner. My favorite meal was on menu: pepper steak with rice and hot and sour soup--man it was the best. And let's not forget the cake: white cake with lemon curd between the layers, lemon icing and candied lemon peel! 

Monday I went to get to work at the studio and Barb, Phyllis and Diane stopped by. They are great friends who I haven't seen forever. In true Kevin style, we had enough leftovers to feed them lunch and still have leftovers. Everything might have been even better on the second day We visited and laughed and told old stories and new ones got to get caught up.

Later on Monday, Kevin and I met with two of the dearest friends in the world--Jane and Alissa from the mall where my studio is. We went to a Mexican restaurant where we carried on and laughed and laughed. [Tell us about the BEES, Jane!] We ended the evening with at a fun yogurt shop.

I can't tell you all how special you made the celebration of my birthday and thank you all for being my friends. You ALL mean the world to me and I wont to take this opportunity to let that be heard. LOVE to you all in the coming year and beyond. Kiss Brian
