Miss Ruby is here

Miss Ruby arrived to stay for a week to help me work on my dissertation! Knut took us out to Chez Nous for a fabulous dinner. We all three wore nasturtium shades tops and black pants and looked striking together. Then we visited the nasturtiums. The Fake Picabia Sisters reunion. We'll have to do mail art for our brothers Picasso and John Held Jr. and Bruno and PLG and all the sisters in our hats. I wrote most of Anna Banana's essay yesterday and got nice mail answers from her to a few detail questions to fill in the gaps of specific dates for publications. I made an essay-writing template to keep the little essays in a uniform format to showcase the unique creativities of the different artists I interviewed.
