Barrie is home sick today. Darned hearing aids! I kept hearing this sound downstairs, and I finally went down to see what it was. Barrie was shuffling cards on the coffee table.
This is a place for my friends and family to keep track of what I am up to. I share my current artwork, as well as some from the past - and also my photography, including some old photos.
The robins have gathered in my yard for the chokecherries. They are drunk! One was in the back of Barrie's work truck yesterday and didn't want to get out.
Barrie was worried that her pups were sick. But they were too happy to be sick. The little rascals were eating chokecherries off the ground, and were just as drunk as the robins. They were so funny!
Can't believe we had that gully washer yesterday, and the power didn't go off!
Barrie felt so bad. She has been taking care of a house across town with a beautiful garden and flowers. The hail just about ruined everything. It's strange how the other end of town had soo much hail, and I had very little at my house.
Tracy on the front porch of the cabin we lived in at Ragged Mountain, Colorado. The house used to be a barn, and that is the original barn door. There was a nice beaver pond in the front yard, with fish in it.
The front of the cabin with the chimney. Bats got in around that chimney and were living inside the walls. They were no problem except when it rained. Then they came in the house instead of outside. We had no electricity, chased bats with a broom holding a Coleman lantern! I shot a porcupine out the upstairs window once. The first and only thing I've ever shot.
I can't remember what I was looking for on the Internet last night, but I somehow ended up reading about The Naked Cowboy. His name is Burck, and the guy actually has a college degree. I found he was running for mayor of New York City last year, but dropped out of the race. Burck formally announced that he is running for President of the United States in the 2012 U.S. election as a candidate representing the U.S. Tea Party movement.
"Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them."
I was reading from the book "Familiar Quotations" on my Kimble last night and come across the above. Do you know where it's from?
I got my new drawing pencils. Haven't tried them out yet - they are "Tombow" brand. The pencils I have been using have grit in them. The Tombow brand was recomended by someone in the drawing forum on Wet Canvas.
When Bill and Alice were here, Bill was drinking a wine, and I asked Kasey if she would get Grandma a beer. The next morning, I came downstairs, still in my pajamas, and Kasey said "Grandma, can I get you beer?"
