Hemingway and all

Hi. Well, that was an awful weekend. Sickness, irritability, bad weather... oooof. OK, done with the rant. I hope yours was much better! I did read two wonderful (though disturbing and morbid) Hemingway stories. I'd have read more, but these needed to sink in a bit. He tells a great story. The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber meant a whole lot more this time around (read it 20+ years ago??). I also finished the The Capital of the World. Marvelous but very sad. I highly recommend a Hemingway fix every once in a while. I'll be with him for a while, with forty seven more stories to read in the volume we had hanging around.
Since Hemingway's on my mind and he loved the bull fights, I smiled when I saw this sweet little painting by William Posey Silva... Reminds me of Hemingway. To be auctioned tomorrow at John Moran.
Bull Fight - Madrid by William Posey Silva.

You find the best stuff in the history of ever for your posts.

The chilly weather kept us indoors tackling home projects. I hope to post a photo of refreshed built-ins in a week or so.
