Fabulous Tour of the Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson Exhibit
Invalid Image LinkInvalid Image Link
Join me, an experienced docent, on a tour of this great exhibition sampling the works of the world renowned Columbus artist, Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson (1940-2015). This survey of her work is a reflection of the vast estate that was bequeathed to the Columbus Museum of Art.
In "Raggin’ On: Aminah Brenda Lynn Robinson’s House and Journals" Aminah combines traditional art materials with found objects and everyday materials such as buttons, cloth, leather, twigs, shells, and music box workings to create magical two- and three-dimensional works of art. This promises to be a fun exhibit to tour together! The tour will take approximately one hour after which you will be able to visit on your own. This tour is offered again on September 20.

Come deepen your connection with other UU women at Chippewa Lake. We can collectively decide a book (I’m thinking of a biography) to discuss. But don’t forget to relax, eat, drink, swim, kayak, cycle, walk, watch videos, play cards, color mandalas, visit an antique store, a second-hand shop, or the lovely gardens of the community.

Previous years’ experiences have made it clear that it will not be hard for us to find lots of meaningful connections. How often do we really get to talk?

Nancy will arrive Friday, and two nights are included if you want to come then. There is a friendly local bar/restaurant where we can unwind and people watch. Or come Saturday if you don’t want to hurry. There will be lunch, dinner, and breakfast. And any/all activities as above mentioned. Leave Sunday for church or be as lazy as you wish.

Peruvian Chess Set & Florentine Chess Board
Invalid Image LinkSold

These chess pieces were hand cast in Peru. My mother brought them back from a trip in the late 1970's. The pieces are cast metal and have a nice feel to them. The leather chess board is 11" square, includes storage for the pieces. It came from Florence Italy, also in the 1970’s.

Great to play chess with, or as "atmosphere" in your den or family room.

A new chess board like this from Florence is about $100. I found two similar Peruvian chess sets on an auction site; they were both over $200.

I would like to take you to one where we will have some instruction before we hit the trails. After the O-meet we will find a place to eat and compare notes. I will cover any entrance fees and the lunch afterward.

There are many O-meets on the schedule so we'll arrange a time that all of us can go.

Maria, Juan, toddler and infant are seeking to make Columbus their home. They had steady jobs and a home they loved. But they faced credible death threats which forced them to flee suddenly, leaving everything. They walked more than 90 days from Honduras to Mexico and waited months to cross the border through a legal port of entry. Maria gave birth shortly after entering the country. Forty-eight hours later they boarded a hot, crowded bus. When they reached Columbus they had nowhere to turn. Their case for legal Asylum is strong but they need support for counsel, application fees and daily living until they secure a legal work permit and a home of their own. 8 0 .00025E7 25 8/29/20 6:30 PM N N N

Vintage Silver and Coral Necklace

This gorgeous 17" heavy sterling Navajo necklace was purchased in Tucson, AZ. The artist is not known. The silver is inlaid with coral, alternating with round silver beads and coral cylinder beads. I showed this photo to the owner of a Native American art store and the first words out of her mouth were "keep it, this coral is no longer available." Make this lovely necklace your family heirloom. 1 0 .00075E7 75 N N Y

Note: As of 3/1 Tours of the hangar and facility have been suspended until further notice. I will continue to monitor this status and I will send everyone an update if I learn this policy has not changed by June 20 or so.

Read David McCullough's "The Wright Brothers" first to appreciate how far aviation technology has advanced, and Ohio's starring role in its history. Then come spend a few hours on a Sunday afternoon in May with Jim for a tour of his workplace. The highlight will be a chance to view the hangar where several business jets are usually being worked on, and we can take a peek inside one and imagine experiencing this luxurious method of travel either as a pilot or passenger.

I trimmed people's toenails for LifeCare Alliance as a Wellness Nurse for 12 years, and I had very positive responses from my clients.

This service is not a pedicure; I don't paint toenails. But trimming toenails reduces calluses and makes walking more comfortable.
