A Knight in a White Van

When I went out to go to an early doctor’s appointment this morning, my Annie van wouldn’t start.  I opened the hood and pulled out my handy car starter, which usually does the trick.  As I was hooking it up, a Knight in a white van pulled up and asked if I needed help.  I tried starting her with the starter – nothing.  He pulled his van up in front of mine and pulled out one of those battery reading gadgets and tested the battery, which was nearly dead, and then gave me a jumpstart, which worked and got me on the road in time.  The Knight’s name is Oliver and he is a landscaper that does work around Annisquam.  I owe him a debt of gratitude, and it was just one more reinforcement of how incredibly kind people are on Cape Ann.  Thanks so much Oliver. 

The picture is one of my new glass paintings, and since it is a flower and he is a landscaper, I thought it would work since I didn’t have my camera to capture him jumpstarting my old girl.

    1. Thanks Kathy. It is 8×10. I’ve mainly been working small 5×7, 8×10 and 11×14 as my space here is limited and I hold the glass in my hand as I work on it. I did a couple of 16×20’s but won’t do that size again until I get back to Rocky Neck where I have more work space.
