Eric was kind enough to tolerate a batch of my "interview" questions.

A note from The Sauce -- all of my references to Jo Jo are about my friend Jessica who is a roller derby lady and a burlesque lady and a crafty vunderkind.

It may become apparent that I have no idea what vunderkind means. Or, by some chance, I may have used it correctly. Either way - keep it to yourself.

Beryl's Story About "Big Painting:

The story behind the painting is this: It's of an orchard in Wenatchee. and I don't know how to reduce what I've got. When my mom first moved there as a step mom to my two bros she had no experience with "country." She was out picking asparagus and a bull snake slunk out and wrapped itself around middle bros leg.

She freaked out.

Beryl Trades Me Big Painting for Appalachian Dolls

Pink, glittery landscape painting
Appalachian Dolls - After

Beryl took pity on the Appalachian dolls and did some surgery to separate them from each other

"I thought you might like to see I've resurrected the kids. New: hairdos, faces, buttons for hands, tie and buttons on shoes for girl, button and belt for boy. Interestingly enough, when I turned around the shirts I found a sticker that they had been made in China. It would be interesting to know, "green-wise," the size of their footprints. I'll give them to Community Services for the Blind."
