Scoff if you must, but over 20 years ago I placed my $5 pool entry on the Arizona Sun Devils and I won. I bought this watercolor from Jodi Rossi, author and illustrator of the children's book, Gully Washer. (Sorry about the reflections) My scientific method was to choose the team most westerly of the two in each game which in the end came down to Arizona. This year I picked Catholic schools. Go Zags! I look forward to this tournament and the connections I have to people in our pool, and yes, we go back 20 years
I know I showed this in my last post but I kept thinking about it, wanting to see it, not wanting to pay for another frame. Last week I finally resolved this by using double-stick tape and attaching it to a framed picture already hanging in our bedroom. It's a watercolor that belonged to Ian's dad, one that his dad really enjoyed. After I couple of days I asked him if he noticed anything different in our bedroom. It took him quite a while, we both laughed, and we left it there. I call it Ginkgos in Love.
