Tick Tock

No one’s heard from us in a while because last week we decided to sell our home in Altadena and ever since we’ve been hustling like crazy to get the house ready (um yeah…like we didn’t already have a million things to do!) We’ve also begun packing in earnest and the RV is in the shop right TimeMarchesOn_USArmmyWWII_tint700wide now getting outfitted with a complete solar power system so we’ll never have to run that noisy, messy generator. Plus, the Schwartz required a few unexpected and pricey repairs. Ugggggh. Meanwhile, time marches relentlessly on…

For those who don’t know (and for those who forgot) there are several terrific gift-perks to order on the IndieGoGo page:

Greeting Cards – I like to send cards that are unique and support local artists at the same time, so this is my favorite perk! Find it at Very Jazzed to Greet You! Set of 10 cards created with images from JC’s original Jazz Series paintings – 5 jazz giants in each set, 2 of each! 5.5×4.25”, blank inside. Free shipping! $30 level

Thank you! – For those who don’t want anything in return and those who don’t like to be boxed in, a thank you on our website. Any level greater than $1

Mail – You’ve Got (Real) Mail! – When was the last time you received real mail from real people? Not a bill. Not an ad. Not a catalogue that you never even asked for. But a real, handwritten note! We’ll send you a locally-sourced postcard from the road! $5 level

We can’t begin to express our gratitude to all of you who have and continue to support us. Whether that be offering your time, talent, good vibes, information, thoughts, connections, or dollars – all of it helps so much.

And stay tuned! The web page bearing your name and our thanks will be posted within the week!
