The Joshua Tree Christmas Card

Some people complain about the desert heat, but I have to admit, I am acclimated to it. I am not sure what it is about arid climates and regions, but I do fine hiking and biking in these. People act like it is ludicrous take a trip to Joshua Tree in late September, but I spotted plenty of other people up there. Besides, some us are the type who have to literally run out of air conditioned buildings to warm up by taking walks at noon, so a Joshua tree card would be perfect at Christmas. I grew up shoveling snow in the San Bernardino Mountains and can handle the cold if I must, but I seem to do quite well in the heat.


The Annie The Cat Pillow

The Annie the cat pillow is “purrfect” for an ailurophile. Click on the pillow below to purchase over on Fine Art America. This pillow has a reprint of my original colored pencil and oil pastel drawing of Annie the manx cat, who happens to be looking over the hillside. She is standing next to two scrub oak trees, which are a common species up in the San Bernardino Mountains.
