look what i found growing in my garden this morning…

sweet reed.

great week though deer threw big bash in the garden one night and clearly smoked all my bean seedlings. seems they are recovering. (the beans, i mean)

had a visit from a cardinal red dragonfly on the pomegranate bush yesterday. wish it would play pretend barrette in my hair for a day.

dig was here dougging away all day thurs and fri helping me plan for luke’s birthday surprise. shhhhhhhh.

had lots of sweaty little boys running around the garden last night playing “around the world in 80 days.” hurling themselves ’round and ’round at the end of the rope swing under the live oak. that live oak should have a great big whistle around its neck for all the games it referees.

have been busy in studio all morning. ooooooooooooooohhhhhh…fun things are dancing off the page.

    Dear Curlin,

    I can’t believe I am writing to you right now! It’s your old neighbor Elizabeth from back on John St. You and your family have been on my mind lately. I am a senior at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul majoring in advertising copywriting. Coincidence? I think not. You don’t know this, but when I used to babysit for Reed and then Reed & Preston, I would look through Luke’s advertising books. There was one advertisement in particular for Great Clips. Bow Wow with the Bow crossed out. I want to do that! Anywho, I am taking a copywriting class this semester and was struck dumb when I saw that one of the assigned texts was written by Mr. Sullivan. As if that weren’t enough, I went to the arboretum (spelling?) last week with my mom. In the card shop I picked up a cute card with a little lady in a pink petal dress. Hmmmm….flip…Curlin Reed Sullivan…
    “Hey everyone! See this card? I changed her kids’ diapers!” Too much coincidence. Just felt compelled to get in touch and find out how you and your family are doing. Especially Reed. He was always such a cutie. I will never forget him tearing buck-naked through your backyard with the Darth Vader mask on. I’d love to hear from you! You can e-mail me at ejsaloka@stthomas.edu
