9:35.…June 1st…. We were Fine Art Editors Today!!!

We decided not to run all over the universe today because we didn’t care to take the chance with Vicki’s back upon talking and recollection of the directions of Vick’s chiropractor, Dr. Lee, whom we will see tomorrow or Tuesday. We thought we should maybe just stay home and recuperate, being satisfied to make a short trip to Eddie Russo’s for a really nice meal of Linguini with white clam sauce. (one of Vick’s comfort foods and Eddie Russo’s is the best) It was a good decision, because about 12:30, we were visited by Stanley Maltzman and his friend Joyce, to drop off empty egg cartons and pick up some eggs for themselves and a dozen for Stan’s daughter Susan and Joyce’s daughter. He showed us a new pastel picture he just completed and told us he was going to daughter Susan’s house in Rensselaerville so she could put his art prints on disc for a client and they had to hurry, because Susan had to shoot pictures of the prints with her camera, enter them into the computer and edit them before placing them to disc. We told him that we could do it for him in less than half the time and save Susan all the aggravation of lighting to get good pictures by camera because we would just scan his originals into a file. Vicki would do half and I the other half, after which we would add the files together and copy the file to a master disc for Stanley to keep and make two disc’s for him to give to clients, etc.

It was a pure thrill and a privilege to scan Mentor and Friend, Stanley Maltzman’s Lifetime collection of art prints to disc’s for him. His work is so beautiful and the quality of detail is incredible.

Stanley is truly an amazing and talented friend!

Tomorrow we will get back to work on the barn by placing the beams on center line marks and plate them to lock them down, then I will cut the ends off square and possibly place the steps up inside the stairwell. That’s tomorrow’s plan, but tonight it is 10:00 O’clock and were are giving up for the day.
