Dean's Stained Glass
email%20dean.jpg
Sometimes, when you least expect, great things happen! The other day I received an email from an old friend who I haven't seen in about 30 years ..... from back in my days in Birmingham, Alabama. Its so exciting to catch up with old friends and see where we have both gone since our paths crossed eons ago.

Vanda said she had tried her hand at stained glass and had built several pieces. Two of her pieces are pictured below. She promised more pictures of her other work.

Vanda has retired from her corporate job, has a small ranch where she raises horses, and has plans to travel extensively in the next few years. I am pleased that one of my pieces of glass from decades ago is still safe and being enjoyed. I am much more pleased to have crossed paths again with this independent, self made woman who I can again call a friend.

Vanda reminded me of the stained glass window I built for her back then and said it still hangs in her window. In 30 years, unfortunately I have forgotten much, so I asked her to send a photo of the window to "jog my memory". She did, and the picture is shown on the right. My memory is still not "jogged" but I know I built it because I have a set of 2 just like it in blue that hang in my kitchen today.
