My MOO mini cards,  you can have your own artwork or photos turned into mini business cards, regular business cards, square cards.  Someone at the Marc Taro Holmes workshop in Savannah gave me his square card with some of his artwork on it,  so I had to give it a try too.  I only did 8 designs, but you could load 100 different ones and each card would be unique.  Check them out at

We rode down highway 17 to 'point south' and had lunch at the Wendy's off I-95 there. Perfect weather today, not too hot, not too cold, JUST RIGHT.  I think I read somewhere this week that Winnie the Pooh was 90 years old... imagine that.

Hum, the thumb is not white, it has paint on it, wonder why the scanner did that?  Lots of fun today at the boat show, lovely wooden boats so well preserved and obviously loved by their owners.

Really chilly ride to work this morning, had 2 hours to try and remember where I packed away my long johns.  Did not find them yet...  Some funny eyes just because.

Haven't seen this cute commercial in a long time.  I still think of it every Wednesday, and from time to time I draw a camel to remember.  I started work on a rose painting today, got it drawn and a few petals have an initial wash.  I may have to pull out a Flamingo painting that's been languishing on my table for months since the colors are similar, pink rose, pink Flamingo.

Happy Birthday to the love of my life, my darling husband Ron. He got his big Orange bike back from the Harley shop today, so he had a happy birthday before he had to go to work.  Hockey coming soon, cooler weather is making riding a real pleasure these days.

Does anyone use these anymore?  This one is tiny, like only 1/2 an inch long, so I use it to clip chip bags closed.  I remember hanging laundry to dry as a kid, I kind of enjoyed the smell of sheets dried in the sun and fresh air.

Such a gorgeous day today, Ron and I picked up our motorcycles from Dave's house this morning.  After lunch with him, we took a little ride up to Awendaw SC,  roads mostly clear even though it was high tide.  Still lots of folks with no power so we're very lucky.

Matthew finally left the area around 5pm today,  most of the damage (tree limbs down mostly) happened this morning.  I slept thru the hurricane coming in last night, but was wide awake for the winds from the backside of the storm.  We lost power on and off several times this morning, and we heard transformer boxes going off, sounded like a shotgun blast.  We'll go pickup our motorcycles tomorrow, moved our cars back into our our driveway late this afternoon. The other side of our street has no trees, our yard has 2 big ones in front, so we parked our cars across the street between our neighbor's houses to keep them out of the wind and away from the trees.

Hurricane Matthew the day after

The trees actually lost all these branches today, AFTER the hurricane was well away from us.  It has stopped raining, but I'm afraid to let the dogs out in the yard for fear the falling branches will hurt them.

A bit of ponding in the backyard, it used to do this even more when there was a swamp behind our house, MUSC built a classroom building and parking lot where the swamp used to be so the ponding in our backyard isn't as bad as it once was.
