The Gallery at Round Top Show

by Lyn Foley on November 14, 2013

I am better and better each day – and working again making beads! I’ll have new jewelry ready by November 29th for a trunk show at The Gallery at Round Top. Ken and Karen, the wonderful artist/owners of the gallery will set-up for me, since I still have a ten pound “lift limit.” On Friday, set up day, I’m offering a 10% early bird discount, and you’ll get the first look at my new pieces. Mention this blog post to receive the special price.

The trunk show will continue all day Saturday, November 30th, from 11 to 5. I am looking forward to being out and about doing what I love to do – sharing my work with you. There will be lots of other things going on in Round Top that day, so if you are up for a road trip, come join us in our great big/little town!

Meanwhile, on November 17th, Jim is being honored by the Houston Area Parkinson’s Society. (Read about it here: Neither Jim nor I have owned any “dress-up” clothing since 1990 when we moved aboard our sailboat to go cruising. So, the past week or so has been an intensive search for jacket, shirt, tie, slacks for Jim and party dress, shoes and stockings for me. Jewelry? No problem. And we are also donating a piece to their raffle.

The event serves a very good cause, so if you are in Houston make your contribution, and enjoy a great dinner party event at the same time. (Plus, you’ll get a rare look at the two of us in some very snazzy attire.)

Otherwise, our world has been about my recovery from heart surgery. I am progressing very, very well, am super grateful to still be on the planet. I again send you love and thanks for your support and concern.

Happy (early-bird ) Thanksgiving!

Greetings from “Jubilacion”. Wow! You two have been busy since we last talked. I’ve spent the last hour checking out your blog. I didn’t realize that you had written a book about your sailing adventures. Can’t wait to read it. In fact, I bought two books, one for us and one for a friend of my sister-in-law, Joanne, who was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s.

We just arrived in Seattle on Thursday. Al’s got the engines and generator running, and is busy getting everything else operating……. you know how that goes. We hope to get away from the dock by May 15, and won’t be back in Seattle until mid-October. Don’t know how much longer we’ll be able to cruise. Al’s going to be 84 this September! But, we’re both relatively healthy, and still love boating, so we’ll cruise as long as we can. You can check out my cruising blog from last summer at We’d love to hear from you. Please email me so that I can give you our phone number here in Seattle.

Warmest regards,

Al & Sandy
