I recently had a revelation thanks to some good friends of mine that I have a great deal of respect for. I would like to apologize to my new neighbor who I made a brief reference to in a blog post from April 15th. I humbly expect your forgiveness for referring to you as a dumb ass, featuring a photo of your vehicle stuck in the mud, and making light of the fact that you and your wife like to watch television. Although the references were uncalled for (but without true malice - more a trial by fire initiation hazing), I must say that I believe your response has been rather harsh. I forgive you for all the things you have said about me in public and on the internet. Although I do not expect us to be friends, there is no need for us to be enemies. We both have a lot of work to do and we are all in this together. Please accept my sincere apology. I would respectfully request that you do not malign the character of people I know. I take a great deal of offense to that and I am not at liberty to forgive you for things you say about my good friends.
That being said: I finished painting today. The cow birds and occasional Yellow Headed Black Bird are enjoying the view till the roof goes on. 71,92,70, .46", B
