Annie and I had a great time. It felt like luxury having so many of our friends in one place at the same time. It must be how the triplets' moms feel about having all their kids' birthdays on the same day. These are the cards the triplets made for us, even though it was not our birthday.
Violet chose a lovely violet-lavender background for hers. You see that my hair is quite long compared to Annie's, which is entirely accurate. Please also note my very fashionable high heels and red dress (red is my color). Annie claims she is not wearing a dress, but rather, a long shirt.
Alex chose a neutral background with the Duck at Machu Pichu. Annie has climbed to the top of a ruin, and I am shouting moral support from the base while enjoying a cold beverage (not shown). I am extrapolating from Alex's fine Minimalist style; I regret not asking the artist herself what she was saying here.
Mason did grant a brief interview about this piece. The cover is self-explanatory:
He expands: 'these are two places the Duck shouldn't go: the sea ... '
'... and outer space.'
Thanks, Mason, Alex, and Violet, for your original artwork!
I'm back home. Whew. We'll be here another week, then back south again.
