Our Bea

This is our Bea-short for Beatrix-she was an English Shepard- the good old farm dog. She passed on March 14th from kidney failure. She was the BEST dog ever-never ran away, never barked except in a thunderstorm)loved everyone, stayed in our yard with no fence! We miss her but know she is at peace now. This was taken on one of her best last days- she loved to be outside and would only come in at night. She was 14 years old.

Johnny Depp in Columbus!!!!!


OK- I have to post this...Johnny Depp is coming to Columbus and will be filming for the movie Public Enemies. One of the scenes will be shot in my Gallery!!!! The Gallery was once a bank and will be a bank again- although the scene will be shot from the outside- Johnny will run out of the front doors, get into a car and be drive away. I'm not sure yet if we are being robbed but I'll let you know as soon as I know.
VERY exciting!!!!!
