Since J&S live an hour outside Santa Fe any trip into the “big” city means errands. Which were accomplished swiftly.
Then we went to an art show by their dear friend Father Earl Rohleder. The words on the sculpture that greeted us at the gate were “Peace to the Whole Place”. Father Earl donates all the proceeds garnered from the sale of his metal sculpture to projects that help the poor in South America. His sculpture is whimsical. Frequent themes are peace and nature. This gathering also enabled us to meet more of J&S friends and enjoy the home and garden of a sculptor friend of Earl’s. We bought the piece Earl is holding: Should be a nice greeting at our door, complete with a doorbell button in the round mouth. J&S purchased a piece entitled “The Funky Chicken” and took it home and placed it in their garden were it happily bobbed its head in approval.
