This is a very abbreviated description of areas that
capture my interest.
Training and Rescue -- My specific
training interests are: positive reinforcement
training; dog obedience; dog agility;
herding. I am active in breed rescue activity as well
as parrot rescue.
-- Despite the fact that my home is crammed
to the rafters with antiques, (to the point that I need to
call an auctioneer to take some things on consignment) I
still manage to attend local auctions and the big antique
shows. Ebay is its own story....
Folk Art --
I have the strangest collection of folk
art. Of interest to me are: Alibrijes (fantasy
animal carvings) from Mexico; garuda from Thailand; animals
from Nepal; Netsuke from Japan; Anima (paintings on bark)
from Mexico; Embroidery from China; Old wood carvings from
Port St. Jolie Canada; Inuit stone carvings, and last but
not least, Koshare (Koyala, Hopi clown) sculpture, drawings,
paintings, etc. There is something very appealing to
me about handmade items that speak of the culture from which
either a godsend for those of us who live in
rural areas, or an instrument of the devil for those of us
who buy all household items except for groceries, online.
Mr. UPS is my new best friend. He wasn't too thrilled
when the beautiful 9'x12' rug had to be delivered.
I'll be visiting him in the hospital for his hernia.
lord knows I'm trying
