priest tried to pay
for the haircut but the barber refused
saying "you do Gods work."
The next morning the barber found a

A policeman came to the barber for a

Its good to feel
solid ground under foot after a snow melt.
Somethin with a little traction to
allow a quicker pace without the fear of
landin on the backside.
I can remember when those
trampoline jumpin places were
spreadin through the country. They
charged by the half hour, so we used ta try
and get as many jumps per minute as possible.
After a three or four hunderd hops,
gettin back on earth left the legs
feelin like they were still
bobbin up and down. Just too much fun.
Those of us landlubbers who
were raised in the Midwest also feel a little
uneasy on large bodies of water. Gettin
out of sight of land takes some gettin
used to, let alone the constant rockin
of the boat.
Most boat rockers in these
parts need ta keep their feet on the ground.
This is some fact, but

NOTES from Hyde House
Armstrong, Director of artCentral
Thankfully, the thermometer has
weakened its hold on us, and for that we are
grateful! I will say, however, that two of the
candy mosaics still out in the Pottery House have
melted a bit, and it would be good for those to
be picked up. To any parents of kids with art
still remaining here from artCamp, I will leave
the door to the Pottery House open just until the
end of August, but then we must lock it once more
in preparation of our fall schedule. I will
remove the art at our Atrium Gallery at the end
of the month also, so stop by Sirloin Stockade if
you desire to see your childs art displayed
there. Coming up in the fall I have been told of
a couple of special events at Cherrys
Gallery downtown just prior to the Midwest
Gathering of the Artists the weekend of September
11th and 12th. Watch the paper for word from
Cherry on the details. Later in September we will
open our new show with photographer Linda Teeter
on the 24th, entitled GRAFFITI. This is a whole
new body of Lindas work, photographs taken
in various cities with the theme uniting the
whole. I am excited about an accompanying event
that our board has been busy working out the
details on, which we are holding on October 2nd,
a late Saturday afternoon/ into the evening event
here on the grounds of artCentral, entitled
GRAFFIFI BASH! The invitations will be going out
soon, and all members will be invited, but we
welcome the general public as well to this adult
social event which will include various
"paint-involved" activities and
demonstrations. Come in clothes you might be
willing to sacrifice to the trash, as you will be
involved in the painting of a long mural wall, a
giant "jigsaw cut 25" will be displayed
divided into pieces for guests to decorate with
brushes. Watch artists create a 10 foot mural
above you, chalk art on the drive, and enjoy
snacks, adult beverages and treats. Guests will
be given the opportunity to "create"
and I hope you will join us for this fun time
together, in our first ever "paint
happening" here at the Hyde House, presented
