Milliron Monday: Ireland

 

Abbott "Pete" Smith D.V.M.
June 16, 1938 - February 22, 2010
Welcome to Milliron Monday where every Monday we celebrate the legacy of Pete Smith, D.V.M., and  Milliron: Abbott “Pete” Smith, D.V.M. The Biography (Monday Creek Publishing 2017), including his wife Jody (1938-2021)

What's on your bucket list?

They say that creating a bucket list helps to "get in touch with our true values" and gives us something to look forward to - a new adventure and/or new direction. It's called a bucket list because it's a list of things to do before you kick the bucket. Everyone should have one.

Pete and Jody had a bucket list; however, I think Jody's list was a bit longer than Pete's. Top on Jody's list was a visit to Ireland. She had traveled throughout parts of Europe before she was married, but she was drawn to Ireland. In her personal library, which was extensive, she had many books of Ireland - Irish fairy tales, picture books, and more.

Jody hoped she and Pete could travel to Ireland in their golden years. There were hurdles that prevented the journey. Life got in the way somehow.

Great advice from bucketlistjourney.net is to "Don't wait for the 'perfect time' to begin - make your bucket list not because you are dying but because you want to live!" 





Have a great week ahead.


Through captivating, powerful, and emotional anecdotes, we celebrate the life of Dr. Abbott P. Smith. His biography takes the reader from smiles to laughter to empathy and tears. Dr. Smith gave us compelling lessons learned from animals; the role animals play in the human condition, the joy of loving an animal, and the awe of their spirituality. A tender and profound look into the life of a skilled veterinarian.

Mother of the Bride Shopping Online and How Can the Hardware Store Help the Florist? by Sandra Russell



I am going to be the mother of a bride! My daughter is marrying a nice guy, working in the entertainment industry (film technician) in California on a Saturday sometime this summer. Probably in July? The wedding plans are not well formed yet due to Covid restrictions lifting in unusual and unplannable ways. Soon though some of these doubts as to venue, day or evening service? indoor or outdoor? and so on will be resolved. 

Meanwhile, I found a dress online that looked pretty darned versatile given these unknowns. This dress is a little dressy/elegant, but could go to the beach, a church or a mansion/museum setting. My daughter agreed, and ordered the dress for me which came in the mail today. The size is right, the fit is good, but the color called "rose/gold" photographed in the Ad as a sort of rosy/peach. It is really a bit coffee au lait, but in the light can flash a bit of rose or a bit of gold. 

Rather than describing the shade it is, I got some paint chips at the hardware store and held the lace up to the charts. I am hoping that with any monitor, the range of complimentary tones might be easy to read. No one is going to wear matching clothes (that I know of?) but thought I would mail out copies of the paint chips so that others would at least know what I will be wearing. Maybe florals or other accents can pick from the color charts to harmonize a bit? I'm excited to see how it all turns out. Maybe some of you wedding planners could find this color tip useful?

Painting Roses by Sandra Russell

Painting Roses
by Sandra Russell

I've been driving myself crazy trying to learn to paint roses by watching YouTube videos. I find that the artists whose work I admire are difficult to follow as in a 'paint along' process; there is a gesture or tone unseen, or a holding of the brush angle that the artists hand just doesn't communicate to his mouth? I know I could not teach techniques so random as rose petals to someone else. I did teach China doll painting to some new workers in a porcelain factory some long years ago. That method was very precise, used only a small set of colors and brushes and techniques and so was not as difficult to translate. Still the person learning had to have an eye for the most delicate of nuance in the blush of a cheek or in and especially in the setting of the eyes and the painting of the brows. Got a couple baby dolls looking a bit like Count Dracula...fortunately the paint had not been fired on and was easily removed with a tissue and some baby oil.

I think for painting roses or any other flower, it is still best to paint from life. Because your relationship to that blossom, how the sunlight hits it, how the scent effects the mood of the experience will alter your touch with the brush. I am hoping to see all the blooms this spring and summer and even keep as many Victorian ladies kept. A small garden journal with flowers and plants growing at their feet. The direct way is just so much deeper an experience. Happy journaling to you all, sketch, write, take photos...be in life, make it yours.

Milliron Monday: Chess in a Nutshell


Abbott "Pete" Smith D.V.M.
June 16, 1938 - February 22, 2010
Welcome to Milliron Monday where every Monday we celebrate the legacy of Pete Smith, D.V.M., and  Milliron: Abbott “Pete” Smith, D.V.M. The Biography (Monday Creek Publishing 2017), including his wife Jody (1938-2021)

“In life, as in chess, forethought wins.
― Charles Buxton

 
Jody often told the story of the hand-carved chess set she had bought for Pete while she was traveling throughout Europe. When we found the book in Jody’s things, it reminded me of her story. Here’s an excerpt about the famous chess game from Milliron: The Biography:

After the wedding and upon their arrival in Colorado, Jody presented Pete with a lovely hand-carved chess set she brought from Switzerland as a wedding gift. Pete really liked chess. He didn’t have a chess set, the only thing he owned was his car. “It doesn't say much for our honeymoon,” Jody said. “When I was in Europe I bought the book Chess in a Nutshell: How to Play Chess so I could learn to play. A few days into our honeymoon, on one of the evenings he didn't work, we played chess. I beat him. I got to see a new side of Pete. He stomped and said, ‘Where's that damn book!’ I went to bed at three or four a.m. Pete stayed up that night and read the entire book. When he was finished reading, it was early morning and he couldn’t wait to play, ‘We are going to play chess! Wake up! Wake up!’”

And, of course, Pete won every game thereafter.

 
Have a great week ahead.

I'm dreaming of a white 'daylight savings time' by Sandra Russell


Well tonight marks a 'spring forward' where at midnight we lose an hour…suddenly it's 1am. Feels a bit like Cinderella running down the steps and losing a shoe. But the surprise of it all is the amount of snow we got to usher in the Spring. Some friends in the area report measuring up to 81/2 inches at their bird feeders. I went out with a yardstick in my backyard about 20miles north of that person's home and measured 61/2 on my jardinière but only 41/2 on the picnic tabletop. Perhaps the sunshine has caused the snow to 'settle' a bit there? Anyhow, I got the notion that if you have to ask, 'what season is it?'

You are probably in Athens County Ohio. Ironically, I just got a new short 'Spring/Summer' haircut yesterday when some folks were out and about in shirtsleeves and light jackets. Hopefully this temper tantrum from Mother Nature now will cause a relaxed sunny disposition by the end of the month. Meanwhile, keep those bird feeders filled and hold back on garden plantings a bit longer. But we are saving sunshine, right? Have a happy longer daylight!

An Apology to Lucifer  

by Sean P Haley, Wayne E. Haley    

Father Thomas Morelli thought he knew the story behind Lucifer’s fall from Heaven. However, upon making the acquaintance of renowned book authenticator Lorenza Pellegrini and being invited to stay in the opulent Venice villa belonging to her “master,” Thomas discovers he has only heard part of the story.

In Boston, psychoanalyst, best-selling author, and outspoken atheist David Wright has been tasked to handle the funeral arrangements for his dear friend Albert Kennedy. What could have driven this controversial exorcist to take his own life? The answer, it seems, is contained in a tome that isn’t supposed to exist.

Joining forces, Lorenza, David, and Thomas must race against time to prevent an ancient battle from reigniting.
