Happiest birthday to my dear friend Susan.  Twelve years ago in this month
I finished this little portrait of her, and I love it, and the story behind it.
Forgive any issues with this blogpost, I'm working on a computer I
don't know, and I'm not a techie.

The cat in the painting is Simone, who was a very beautiful cat, and 
 loved sitting on people's shoulders. Susan didn't grow up with
cats, and wasn't crazy about that affection, but let me take the photo and
I painted this little portrait.  

Susan is a wonderful person, and I wish her a happy and healthy year in 
this time of great stress.

Happy Birthday to your friend, and just FYI, your blog looks great. No apparent problems at all with the new blogger version and borrowed computer!!!! Both email and the post are working per usual, so don't worry! Always great to hear from you! XOXO

Thank you so much Laurel,

It is a very awkward system, and I have a brand new computer to do it with,
although I much prefer my 10 year old Mac. The new Macs are badly designed,
and combine that with blogger's new bad design, and Wham. Not good.
Sorry for complaining. I love your work, and you.
