St. Patty's day events

Happy St. Patrick's day.
Gail took a good pic of me on one of our painting excursions:
After a 7AM mammogram and thyroid ultrascan, I hopped on the freeway down to Green Valley, a retirement community where they have a thrift shop. I saw this Singer Spartan on craig's list the night before. I arrived 10 minutes after the store opened and nabbed it! 95$!
A ganga as they say here in Tucson. I like the shape of the green button-holer case!

The obligatory puppy pic, hard to get all four in one image.

And the latest paintings... been raining here (sort of rare). This is honeybee's entrance with a little trickle of water.
A view from a river walk that Gail rides her bike on. Thought this looked like an Italian villa.
This is Saguaro west, with green-ness every where. Who knew that desert could have a lawn!
