Hal, so interesting to read your post about the art shows. What a wonderful response to the person who wanted to commission a portrait of her dog. Very tactful and leaves the situation open to a happy resolution.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
Hi to all - Doc liked Grumpy Cat but had to be educated - - said he'd rather s face punch than Facebook -- said "I tried it. Didn't like it!" He excelled at Grumpy Cat lesson #1. On oxygen since Friday, so I have actually been able to breathe and cough at the same time - it's hard to remember being able to breathe. Doc declares my lungs much clearer - go back for another follow up on Thursday.
I'm not driving until I can get off the oxygen - I'm sure I'd get tangled up somehow. At my stage of Advanced Chronological Enhancement (ACE, of course) one can't be too careful. Oh, wait - there are my sunglasses - they aren't supposed to be there - well, I think I'll just grab a cold drink on the way by the fridge - but we don't have a bird, do we? - what was I talking about? Who are you? Hi, I am Holly - haven't we met before. Is that a donut on the floor??? Whew - where was I?? Did I float off again?
C & C always welcomed and encouraged.
CONGRATULATIONS, FRED!!! YOU AND RUTHIE ARE JUST PERFECT!
I'm having trouble getting my mind working - did you notice?
Geri, fortunate that your monetary loss was not great and that you are all safe and sound. I think I fear house fire more than anything.
Did I read someone's post wishing Marsha a 'Get Well Quick ' or did I dream that. I'm so far behind that I am just overwhelmed. Can someone update me? Is she ill in the middle of my pity-party? I feel so blessed to be supported both artistically and in friendship by all of you.
WooHoo - - MORE NEW PARTICIPANTS!! It is so exciting to see new names and faces (even if they do think that I am new - -guess that's what happens when one falls into hole and forgets to climb out!)
Oh, Jen - your back just does not cooperate all the time, huh. That's not fun and pain meds are a blessing! Hope your back is better soon.
I feel like we have gotten to watch The Curly One grow up - ring side seat! I think the first pastel I saw that you did, he was about toddler age and trying to climb up to the table top with a ladder improvised from the bottom drawer. Made me smile then and makes me smile to remember it.
Sammy - have you gotten yourself on an even keel with the A-fib meds? I think George went through 2 before they found the right match.
HAL - exactly the right answer to the lady about commissioning her dog's portrait. I probably would have been silly enough to say Id' love to, give her a price and then beat my head against the wall. This way is win-win - - the best there is.
I haven't resized the sketches I did in Louisiana - but maybe I can get them up in a while before I fall back into a medicated stupor. If so, then tomorrow.
I haven't resized my sketches from Louisiana but If I can get them before I fall back into a medicated stupor, I'll post this after noon, or if not, then tomorrow.
Alex, Hal, Sammy, Jen, et al , with all the good wishes - - Thank YOU!
OK - someone else's turn now - - I've overstayed my welcome. And it thunder booming outside. I may have to unplug my computer. I moved it to the bedroom over the weekend and it's not on a good surge protector as on my desk.
Jen C & C's always welcome
Jen, you may already know about this, but if you call the airline ahead of your flight, they will arrange for a person to take you in a wheelchair from the terminal entrance to the plane and vice versa at the other end. I was temporarily incapacitated one time when I had to travel for business and couldn't walk the long distances, and it was a lifesaver ...
