Am hoping to be at the owner's trial in South Georgia this year - still not sure. But this is an oil from the trial a few years ago - it's at a Different Drummer in Thomasville, GA.

Yes, this is true. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2811135/And-thought-going-dentist-bad-Hilarious-photos-traumatised-pets-vet-refusing-go.html

Hilarious photos show traumatised pets being taken to the vet

A vet appointment strikes terror into the bravest dog's heart, so pity these misty-eyed pets - who raised a smile with their attempts to hide or guilt-trip their way out of that dreaded trip.

I got an order for a chrome lab with pheasant hood ornament and sent the wrong one. Hence, I have this brand new chrome Louis Lejuene mascot that was sent back to me because I have to sent the customer another model. It retails at $425, but if someone is interested, I will let it go for $335. The other neat thing about it, is that it comes with 4 magnets (which retail at $85 plus.) Magnets mean you can mount it on your hood without drilling holes in it. Those come with it free. Shipping is $10. So basically, you get a $510 mascot for $345. If anyone is interested, let me know. The details of it are here: https://www.sportingartisans.com/sculptures-ceramics/hood-ornaments/sporting-art-labrador-with-pheasant-large-hood-ornament-wildlife-art.php#sthash.TioEUOQn.dpbs

Just sold this painting - "Thomasville Yellow" - yesterday to a nice guy in McAllen, Tx who saw it in Southwest Art Magazine. First time that's happened.

A great quotation: Women don't want to hear what you think. Women want to hear what they think - in a deeper voice.
