Making Fred's Day
My oldest daughter Kelsey is a sculptor. She takes seemingly mundane things and turns them into wonderful 3 dimensional characters, objects, pieces of art.(thanks Mrs. Buckley and Sally Price) Fred is one of the characters that I adopted. He sits on my front porch, greeting visitors or the mailman. He sits there regardless of the weather but he has told me that sunny days are his favorite. He watches our dogs play, snuggles up to the cat and collects leaves in the fall. It has been a hard winter for him....some of his paper mache has come loose so he is looking forward to spring....when his wire can expand and feel the heat. Fred looked so sad the last snowfall that I decided to cheer him up with some color. I swear I saw him smile!
