A successful show and moo moo's in the road

I had a great show this weekend. The next few weeks I will be working on some special orders which will be quite fun. I met some wonderful people at this show. There was a couple that had a booth next to me and they were screen printers. They were helping a local artist promote his art on t-shirts and painted rocks and they had plans for pillowcases. I was of course touched by the story of this artist. He is a young guy that happened to be painting a street mural and a young boy was watching him and became fascinated by a rock he had painted. The little boy couldn't stop rubbing on the rock and was almost obsessed by it. The artist found out this young boy had Autism and since then he has been making art for autistic kids. This is where the awesome pillow case idea comes in. They are going to put textures with the art work on pillowcases. I Love the whole idea! My son was diagnosed with Aspbergers when he was 10 and at one point carried around a squishy ball in his pocket to help calm himself. Those rocks would have been awesome when he was younger. I will post some links and information on this artist when I find out more. 
My weekend started out great, but quickly took a turn for the worst. Sunday the girls and I were running fevers and I didn't have any Motrin in the house. I drove to my in-laws around 11:30pm to borrow some medicine from them. On the way there I hit a joke. My son and I are fine, but man my car is totaled. I still can't believe it! I'm not sure what the total damage will be, but life without a car for awhile should be challenging. 
I don't want to bore you with all my life drama, but this just stinks.
On a happy note it is Veterans Day and also my daughter Rachaels birthday. We are celebrating with a meal of her choice, meatloaf, baked potatoes, salad, and grilled shrimp. It sounds like an odd mix to me...we will see how it turns out. She is singing in a school program today, so I better get going and watch that kid do what she loves.
