I guess it was so I wouldn't

have to listen to her jokes.

Funny thing is that I

didn't get to know Maggie

until recently.

Those of you who know her,

you know how tough she was.

Had to be.

But what most of you might not


is she was a great artist,

an artist that was never

given the opportunity

to pursue her passion.

In addition to my blue eyes


God, her eyes, and my fair skin,

I too am an artist.

About a year ago I

decided to rent a place,

send out invitations because I

was going

to paint a family portrait.

My whole family.

- Hurry up!

Let's go, c'mon.

C'mon, c'mon, c'mon!

C'mon, c'mon.

Hurry up!

Come on!


After you.

- Whoa!

Oh my god!

- Yeah.

- Think it's big enough?

Yeah, over here.

- Mom, how did you find this


- Oh, a friend recommended it to


You'll appreciate this.

I had the canvas delivered a few

days ago.

- Yeah, what is with the canvas?

- I wanted to paint the family,

and get us together for a few


away from the house.

- Cool.

- Remember, take plenty

of photos this weekend.

- Okay.

Yeah, no problem.

I'll just, ah, I'll do that.

- You little!

- C'mon, c'mon!

- Oh, shut it!

I'll get you.

- Hey, I brought the bags in.

How's the studio?

Because it cannot be any

better than this kitchen

and there is a smoker

and a barbecue out back.

- It's perfect.

What did I say?

- You're right.

- I love you.

- I love you.

- All right you.

- Wait before you pull in here.

- Oh just sh-sh-sh.

I think this is it.

What do you think?

- Well...

Yep, those are the longhorns on

the gate.

- Uh-huh.

- Yep, this is it.

- Okay.

This is nice.

- A little rustic, huh?

- Wow.

- Daddy?

- Your parents are here.

- Yeah.

They're here!

Uh-oh, I can't miss.


- Hey!

- Oh, momma!
