Art Opening with Dawn

Oriole by Finijo

Dawn and I scheduled one of our dinners out, but then she got a better idea. A former employer of hers, Jim Blackburn (an environmental attorney who does really good things in Texas) sent out an e-mail about an art opening he was having, so we went to the opening before dinner.

The show was held at The Art League (next to Inversion Coffee House) and it was titled: Birds: A Collection of Verse and Vision by Jim Blackburn and Isabel Scurry Chapman. Ms. Chapman painted birds native to Texas on cigar boxes and Mr. Blackburn wrote poetry about each bird and it all connected with the conservation that is so close to his heart.

After the opening, we went to Barnaby's for Dinner. Ryan was our waiter and he was both funny and charming, as usual. Dawn is now a fan of Barnaby's burgers - which are arguably some of the best in Houston. We need to schedule more of our outings, but we always seem to get caught up in our day to day lives and just don't make time like we should. Maybe we will do better in the coming year...
