It runs in the family, of course ...

My west coast sister (Long Beach) just sent me these pics she took at a reception for a student art show in which her soon-to-be-graduating son Scott had an entry, and in which he won a $25 gift certificate for his art! Yep, that's my nephew.

Above is a close-up of the winning picture, a graphite drawing of some Easter Island type statues. Pretty cool, if you ask me. Pretty cool even if you don’t.

And here’s Scott escorting my brother-in-law’s Mom into the reception. What a considerate, handsome, intelligent, athletic, artistic-type guy.

When I was talking to my sister on the phone yesterday. she told me that Scott, having mastered water polo, is now on to bicycling, and

plans to start training for triathlons in the near future. She says it’s kinda weird when your kids grow up and start doing stuff.

Scott: Yeah, me and my buddies are thinking about cycling across country
next summer.

All-righty then.

Back to the reception: here are younger brothers Brian* and Mike*, along with Grandma**, the artist himself, and Dad**, taking in the greatness & mystery that is Scott’s art.

*also loaded down with good looks, talent, intelligence and athleticism

** and just where did think all those good looks, that talent, intelligence and athleticism came from? ... yeah, that’s right ... it runs in the family.
