There was a lot of fishin going on this weekend at the Annual Palmetto Sportsman's Classic at the Fair grounds...It is hosted by the S.C. Department of Natural Resources...The fish tank had about a thousand Rainbow Trout in it waiting to bite some little boy or girl's hook...
First you got to get in there and "fish"...
Hold her steady...son...
There was a Easter party Saturday afternoon at PETS Inc. in West Columbia ...for animals...mostly dogs and their owners....Hot Dogs and Hambergers were selling like Hot Cakes (pun intended) ...Baked goods were sold...Prizes were awarded...DJ's were Jiving...Everyone looked happy...even the pet owners...

Whoever took it got up very early and took this picture of the last nighttime space shuttle launch and was kind enough to share with his co-workers and whomever else would appreciate the beauty of the space launch.
The picture was taken using a tri-pod and the elapsed time for the picture was several minutes in order to get the full fire-trail (this is why the stars are little lines instead of dots).

If you are single and sociable...then you can find a group of like-folks at the Columbia Senior Center near Five Points...They meet once a week and join forces to attend various functions in Columbia and the surrounding area that are fun to go to...You know...dances...plays... picnics...you name it...
First of course is buisness...They take time to plan their coming days, weeks, and even months...(Want to go on a cruise?)

Columbia has been been blessed this week with the presence of a very gifted artist by the name of Rose Chiu...She hails from Taiwan and has a fantastic art exhibit at the Richland County Library on Assembly Street...Her work is fresh and inspiring...If you have a chance...don't miss seeing it...
Linda Z. and Ms. Chiu and I...

A young man named David gave me a photo he took of me during a festival last year...The artist looks quite "Dapper" in his beret and his posies...hehe
This young lady who I sketched previously decided to draw my lady friend and I ...She did quite well...Don't you think?

I have always liked Columbia's skyline...and driving east on the Jarvas Klapman Highway towards it is always a pleasure...I've taken this shot many times and I think this is one of the better ones...On the left side of the pix is a frontage road that I once lived on (in the '60s) ...My wife Nancy and I bought ( made payments on) a two bedroom bungalow for 7 thousand dollars on a quarter acre of land...From our side porch, we had a wonderful view of Columbia...Alas, the family grew and we had sell the house and we headed west...(not to California though...) just west of where we were living...

Last night my friend Penny and her daughter Dede and my old friend Jerry went to the About Face Session at the Art Museum where Penny posed for the portrait group...It was a cold and blustery night (and a promise of snow) so not many of the group were there...But we had a lot of fun painting Penny...
