Conchita 2


I thought you all might like to see Conchita in her new home. I brought her back to our apartment in New Jersey last weekend, and immediately cleaned her up. She was filthy, having apparently resided for decades in the closet of someone who smoked about 20 packs a day. I removed a thick layer of orange nicotine scum from the glass and frame. Turns out the frame is gray, not olive green! Who knew?!




Anyway, she cleaned up well and we put her in the guest bedroom (a.k.a. the squirrel room). We also cleaned up the room to make it a bit more user-friendly. Conchita now hangs above my meditation cushion, and as you can see, Ernie sometimes likes to spend time with her.

She cleans up real nice.

I love the story behind this pic. Just when you think the race is over along comes a second chance.

I'm so glad Conchita found a new home. She's sort of like your house mother as she hangs there in the guest bedroom.

Ernie looks like he's in a highly meditative state.

You know at some point you're going to end up with Conchita's ghost haunting that room. You do know that, right?
