Cathy, We would love to see your photos online if you can share them.
I'm so jealous of you guys who get to go see this. "And in the end, the
love you take is equal to the love you make." Or something like that.
I think that is what this is about. Christo is so giving. THink of the
other scores of greedy CEOs who have taken so much and given back so
little if anything. Christo is all about beauty. Plain and simple.
Excess money from EVERYTHING could go to the Tsunami, but it won't.
Contrary-wise, (Alice in Wonderland word), we had 3 5th graders take
brownies up in front of the Rice Supermarket a few weeks ago to raise
money for the Tsunami victimes....3,500 big buckos in 2 hours. We have
raised 15,000 bucks through carwash events at school. Yesterday I had
my darlin little dog River at the dogpark/schoolyard near my house. He
ran in the lake and got all muddy despite my desperate screams of "S T O
P !!!!
R I V E R, S T O P ! ! !" which just made him run faster to the splash
pit where about 7 other dogs were already being very bad and having such
fun. ANyway, kids at this school were having a Saturday carwash to
raise money for tsunami victims. We took River through the carwash and
he got a dogwash. Very funny. The kids were all excited for the change
of pace, but of course they had to go ask their principal first. She
said yes, so River got to donate $$ to the tsunami fund and he came home
clean. What a good dog. In Houston, it seems everywhere you look there
are fundraisers for this disaster. Houston is a very giving town.
