Blackbird Naturals

The supposed day long deluge was only morning drizzle.  Although I really didn't deserve the treat - I did a GrubShack lunch this afternoon after waiting for the road to dry out.  Got a double delivery today.  UPS brought me my copy of "The Omnivore's Dilemma" and USPS brought me something really special - more about that later.

Was pretty pleased with my rock work yesterday so I went out and fetched 3 more loads.  Spent the late afternoon assembling the e"rock"tor set - adding some stone walls to the fire pit project. One or two more days of drizzle and rocks and I will be returning to spray paint mode.

Back to the special delivery today...this is my tale of a crazy life path and 6 degrees of separation.  Way back in the 80's, I met and became friends with a makeup artist named Bonnie Maller.  She introduced me to photographer Chris Callis who I worked for and became good friends with.  While working for Callis, I met another photo assistant and good friend - and now successful photographer, Dan Winters.  At the time, Dan was dating Denise Milford, now another successful photographer and film maker - and good friend.  After I made the move here, Denise introduced me via the web to her sister Debbie Young.  Debbie introduced me via the web to Anthony Anderson - both I consider good friends though we have never met in person.  Today I got Truffles I ordered from the company that Anthony started with Alexandra and Andrea.  The truffles are UNBELIEVABLE!!  The internet links are as follows:

John - We are thrilled that our truffles landed safe and sound and honored that they made their way to you through 6 degrees of separation - feeling way more like 6 degrees of connection!! xoxo Anthony, Alexandra and Andrea

PS We're fans of all of the 6 degrees! We love Debbie - can't wait to visit in AZ xoxo

John, just got back from the BlackBird Naturals central headquarters! We had lots of yummy truffles and a good time with the chickens and the crew too.
Hope you are keeping cool in the heart of Texas!
