A few years ago, I was awarded a Professional Development Course for artists. Part of the homework was to write an Artist Statement. I worked and worked; polishing an eliminating, until I only had the kernel that was “me.” When I read it out; I was told: “That’s what everyone would say.”
I got tired of being known as just “Doug,” or “Oh, him,” or “If he’s coming; I’m not going,” and decided to remake my image — “Doug the Beloved” [the guy who used to be just “him.”] I was just about to announce this, when there was a Pandemic and the bar was closed — why does this sort of thing always happen to me?

Kids: Your parents trust their well water because it's been pure and healthy for generations, but times have changed. Help keep your family safe with The Child's Water Testing Picture Book. Follow the simple instructions and diagrams to collect your well water samples, then bring them to a laboratory for testing. It's best to test weekly, or even daily during the Spill Season. Remember the Law: "Home owners with their own wells are solely responsible for the quality and safety of their water." So if you die, it's your fault. With frequent enough testing, it's comforting to know that your family will probably, in most cases, be OK.
