Dick Douglas celebrates birthday
Vicki Swords, Leslie Swords and Amy Mask dined at South of Beale. Afterwards they went to the Orpheum Theater and enjoyed the show, Tyler Perry’s “Madea.”
Happy belated birthday wishes go out to Dick Douglas, who celebrated Saturday night. Get well wishes also go out to him. He had a recent stay in the hospital.
Grady and I went “neanderthalling” through the cemetery over the weekend, snapping pictures. It was such a beautiful weekend. If you have never seen the “Our Charlie” headstone, last name Wells, it is worth taking a gander. It is down toward the middle of the cemetery. It is a granite headstone with a little boy laying on his dog. It speaks volumes for the times of our grand Hill Crest. The stories that can be told by just looking at the headstones are immense. We also visited the grave of Hiram Revels, which is one of our marvelous historic places of rest. I encourage everyone to go “neanderthalling” through Hill Crest. It is such a peaceful and beautiful place!
Monday afternoon, I went down to Oxford to visit with famed artist, Glennray Tutor. He donated five of his signed lithograph prints for the upcoming Kate Freeman Clark Art Gala. When entering his studio, I was completely awe-struck. It is an immense studio with very high ceilings, perfect lighting and his works displayed - some finished, some works in progress - all around. He even has a black cat, Woofie, who hangs out in the studio with him. If you are unfamiliar with Tutor and his work, his pieces are all photo-realism. Each piece looks as if it could be a photograph - perfect in every sense of the word. Very close attention to detail, very colorful and super imaginative! If you are into art and get down to Oxford, look him up and visit his studio. It will not disappoint!
Sometimes living in a small town, we take for granted the people who actually are in our city government to help us. I met with Felicia Autry earlier in the week. I had a zoning question for her. Having never met her before, I was unsure what to expect. She was such a delightful person and full of information. She knew exactly what I needed and with whom I should be speaking. It was very lovely to find myself “neanderthalling” up to the third floor of City Hall and have someone with such knowledge and fabulous personality sitting across the desk, willing to help! Kudos to Felicia Autry - what a valuable asset she truly is to our city!
