Vaccinated today for JnJ

This is how it went, but first, tomorrow morning 4/1/21 you too can get it in Greenacres. no registration required. Sponsored through Palm Beach Co.

while waiting from 6:30 to 9:30 when line started to move.

I was prepped to get on line w Publix but I got a wake up call at six w the announcement “ no registration required and do you want to go”. I was outside of my house at 6:10 waiting for my friend Tammy . I grabbed some matzo and OJ for both of us. We were probably the 56th vehicle. Most single passenger and many there for the food distribution. 3rd car in line said he got there at 4:30 a.m.

8 rows Of 20 cars each

So we sat there watching the parking lot fill. It appeared to be running late. They would separate us into two lanes as we got nearer . The rain clouds were present no sooner did I make that observation it started.

Very organized here Thanks volunteers, we only came for the vax

We were guided down around the bend and told to park. Here where one did not know where the other organizer was intent on. Looking at the photo it appeared we could sit outside the car. I proceeded to dry the two chairs in front of our car.

Carl is sitting by Q sign , on my dry chair all others soaking wet.

IMPORTANT. See the “Q” signs. That’s how you register. They ask the pertinent questions are you allergic? have you had it ? etc etc. you get back an e-mail w your registration number and Barcode but chaos system prevailed it was the blind leading the blind. Some got Green wristbands. Where did you get those? Turned out had nothing to do with anything. The barcode, Is generated via the (q) thing. If you do not have cell phone or capacity as this 80 year old woman. Below. There is help on site that can generate this info for you.

She felt so discombobulated, had the phone but could not operate it. ( I was in the same boat. Tammy assisted me on my IPad . ThANK YOU. Tammy.
Natasha nurse administering the vax

It rained, did I mention this? And rained. Tents were brought in, and so I don’t think there were 400 people. Overheard was that RPB knew Monday that they were getting the JnJ. when asked how many were there from Royal Palm Beach not a single hand went up. People that were there got news via Social Media, the gentleman w nurse Natasha said his wife was in the medical fields that’s how he knew.

Moi in line I was one of the first 3 Scared had not had a shot in ever so long. It did not hurt. Was told to go sit 15. All’s well that ends well. Posting this 5 hours later still everything is ok. This J nJ is effective within seven days.

Will be here in LWB soon as our City Mgr. mentioned In his closing remarks at last City Hall Mtg.

ART alive and well in Lake Worth 3/12/21

Ok it’s not Miami or N.Y. Like some naysayers are alluding. I did discover some new talent right here tonight.

By invitation, Showcasing the awesome art of Glass. At Benzeiten tucked away in Royal Poinciana neighborhood. 2nd and S F st. Look for the colossus bronze at the entrance. Parking from 3rd.

See Leonard Bryant photography FB

There was the community show at the HATCH, more sparse than previous years. Blame it on COVID but they managed to fill it with future artists. Always a delight interpreting a child’s vision.

Even my little charge approved of what they saw on my iPad, that I shared the morning after. As It’s spring break we will make appointment and go see in person, then a Ice Cream treat, to remember the special day.

Just across the street a new art space full to the rafters like the Impressionist Salons. Quality however varied I.e. Salon de Refuse. All the famous ones we know today, came fron “The Salon de Refuse” so an art movement was born.

And yes, I found some I shall follow even my charge WeeWillie pointed to one he liked from the ones I photographed. He has a good eye. I chose the same artist, different painting.

William liked the far left, I was drawn to the bottom.

Onward to downtown my friend and I headed. On the Corner of M and Lake Ave. a NEW space. No gallery name visible but lights were on and hours posted. So any weekday from noon to 6 p.m. worth your trip.

Next door, one painting made my heart stop, art! Ok I’m a traditionalist, also beautifully framed.

Yes I had a oil painting accepted In the community show. I submitted 3 and what I considered my best was rejected.

Accepted and they misspelled my name LOL

Fred W. Hunt birthday

This is a Homage to a artists artist. Done in photo memories

A memoir from my recollections and soon to be in a book.

This stunning work had an unusual start in the Embassy program. Usually selected from existing art for Ambassadors residences overseas. This was a commission destined to the Panama commemoration of the return of the Panama Canal to its people. It was $42,000. And now again available.

The Gift

A small moment from a dance I commissioned for Fred Hunt’s Birthday and Performed in the gallery by Monica Craun during the “Homage a la femme and the artists who love them” exhibition. Video is on the OneEarsociety blogspot .

Miles of Smiles

Still available but has a hold on it so Dr H can finish his man cave. Lol. Purchases are personal and his wife did not want to look at Gary on a daily basis. They invest every other year . $17,000 location of Miles of Smiles is Wynnwood.

Cocoanut Grove Cottage

This was a gift to me of our cottage on the Brennan Property. This image became the Mothers-day Invitation for the 1st Coconut Grove Artist Studio Tour. (over 250 artists were registered in the Grove by the Miami Cultural Council) 42 were on the tour.

This is a very tall water colour titled “The Rosy fingers of dawn rising above The Gates of Hercules” ranged from $12,000 – 17,000 several variations were created for homes with very tall ceilings and some Corp. offices. Additionally he added one to the murals at the U of Miami.

Margaret Stoneman Douglas homestead

One of the smaller oil paintings at just 16×20 It is the home of Margaret Stoneman Douglas author of “River of Grass” “she was a delightful person” Fred had the pleasure of meeting her while he was painting. It was completed after her death. Still in our private collection for 7,500 the home is on the Historic register.

Handels Messiah

Home somewhere in North Miami Beach by a radio executive. The performance took place at the Arsht Center. That year a major accident delayed the performance. We were all invited back for the next nights entire performance. I chose not to go, Fred took our 89 yr old neighbor. searching for scissors I went to the studio and there on the easle was the almost finished painting. Only a few touches were needed. We first exhibited it at Fairchild Gardens and it sold. While still on display some performers from the H M came by and recognized themselves as well as some other performers. There were many amazing moments, like hearing music emanating from a painting he was working on painting in Woodstock Studio

Just a few of the One ear Society participants in the annual King Mango Strut

This was our annual event The King Mango Strut. Here we spoofed the City of Miami, not our first time. Parking meters were the issue. A young man on rollerblades added quarters to the almost expired meters in the Grove, Miami parking authority not happy. So we came out as the Fairies that year. We were inclusive volunteers children, we announced the theme and they showed up. Did not have to be a One Ear Society member.

Woodstock Drum Circle on the green

We loved Sundays on the green. Drumming commenced sharply at 4. If you needed to learn there were practice lessons earlier around one. It ended at six just as the Trailway bus pulled in and the entire circle dispersed, back to the City. There is a video of the drumming on the Oneearsociety Utube channel. See how many you recogniz
