the desire to replace the faded prints of Portofino in medical establishments.


we’re quite worn out in the corporal realm – what with writing and more writing and also some Other work for other (lovely) people that requires driving through Canyons and concentration and everything and who-we-are-in-RL is doing some Very interesting consulting (which she told us not to talk about so we shan’t).


but before we head into the re-write stage of The House On Church Row this weekend, there’s a Morning in the Library (research for the next one – a 1920s Hollywood Novel) and Lots of email to Respond to (we were a little remiss yesterday) and a concerted effort to replace all the faded prints of Portofino in medical establishments.



by writing (emails, although we prefer to send cards, it might be easier to use electronic communication today) to all the doctors’ offices in beverly hills (for a start) and letting them know we have gorgeous pictures that will help people feel better when they’re sick or frightened or under-the-weather

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAwe *did* write to Cedars where many a movie star gets helped.

haven’t heard back yet (and it was a while ago – *sighs*)

so we’ll go smaller and start with doctors’ offices* (as we’ve met quite a few in our time).

*thank you to maria for this suggestion last night over a skim decaf milky non-caffeinated beverage and safe flight to the old country!

we love to have friends that Travel.

open for business.


we gave up with the PayPal button (in geek speak: “there’s an interoperability issue between the divergent code types of wordpress and paypal) *yawns*

and then we thought – gosh – what happens if our stuff becomes Terribly Popular and we end up spending a Lot of time at FedEx doing ground shipment and answering customer service email about printings and manufacturing and we got Quite Exhausted.

so we went to visit our friends-down-under (in Australia, not the people who live on the 1st floor in our Melrose Place type apartment building here in Los Angeles) at Redbubble and they said “we’ll do it, possum!” (because we imagine everyone Australian sounds like Dame Edna even though we know that’s not true).
