Vol XVI – #330 – Leland in the Morning Sun

It’s been said many times, “Oh What a Beautiful Morning”, and it’s being said today.  Winter still has a month to go, but this “Spring Break” is nice to have.  I’m going out on the deck and sit in the sun.   A free 2017 Leland Report Calendar is now shipping with all book orders!  http://www.artistasylum.com/book/h7b12a9f3#h7b12a9f3  

Vol XVI – #329 – No Snow to Show

  The sky quickly cleared this morning after an overnight rain. What snow remains is hidden in the shadows.
