Dennis and I Discover Antique Chinese Carvings

Dennis and I should not be allowed in towns with beautiful art galleries and antique stores. We're a financial danger to ourselves.

We found ourselves in Santa Monica for medical reasons and decided to explore the famed Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills. Big mistake. We wondered into an antique store. Next thing I know we're walking out with four antique chinese carvings. We had to use the balance remaining on three credit cards to do it. We were feeling broke and had no business making this purchase.

Despite the expense, we enjoyed these additions to our home. They don't fit. We really don't have the space. But aren't they wonderful? I'm sure Quan Yin brought us luck during the year that we traveled down to LA on a regular basis while Dennis was involved with a clinical trial for cancer. That's all finished now. The carvings have long since been paid for and Dennis has been cancer-free for three years. The Emperor and Empress guard either side of our mantle piece and the Quan Yin on their elephants guard our guest bedrroom and our living room. They were worth it.

And just what was kept inside the Emperor and Empress???
