Renwal of faith in mankind!
So I am sitting in my car at work this morning trying to catch the end of a song...a man walks out of his townhouse with a great poster celebrating Baltimores Bicentennial dated 1797-1997. The man with him carrying more framed posters of Baltimore by other artists. On his way back to his townhouse I stopped him and said where did you get that great colorful poster saying "Celebrate Baltimore". He said would you like one I have an extra? I said sure, having just been paid. He went in his house and brought out a nicely blue framed poster,said he was a collector. I was telling him, I have a poster of when Harborplace opened in 1980 that many have wanted,but I can't part with. He was impressed with that. But I am an artist and I have some cityscapes in spray paint that happen to be in a 2 page spread right now,in a magazine. I said would you want one in exchange? He said sounds interesting and sure! After more talk we parted ways and I promised to bring him my art soon. Now how wonderful was that? Someone was going to give,for free, a nicely framed poster,not just a rolled up poster that you admired? Made my day!
Just got Tickets ordered to see "The Boss" in August. My friend is a huge fan so ok I said yeah. I love concerts anyway,and he and I did the "Asbury Park" the "Stone Pony" T-shirt trip from Atlantic City this past winter. Last year we saw Bob Seger in D.C.,previously Fleetwood Mac,2 Eagles concerts,Foreigner,Greg Allman,and a Stevie Nicks. My husband sends us with his blessings and isn't into concerts.
