Well, well, did I mean to say Bye, Bye November... or Buy Buy November... LOL I didn't realize until I started adding color that I'd make an error... and then I thought... well it is Cyber Monday so maybe buy, buy is an ok message.

My daughter and grand-daughter made me a little pocket paint tin the lid has the picture of a boat and this sea captain... inside my daughter used clay to make 12 little cup dimples for color...My friend Rita only carries 3 colors (red, yellow and blue)... I gotta have WAY more colors than that.

The interestate system didn't exist when I was born, I can remember when parts of it were graded and the culverts under it were big enought for an adult to walk thru without bending over, my cousin Barbara and I used to walk thru the culvert to visit a friend that lived on the other side. Today, there is not a hint of my Uncle's house nor of the friend's house that we used to visit... progress to be thankful for... and a little nostalgic about too.

The good cook gene didn't get passed to me... the eats too much, gains lots of weight gene I got just fine.
Amazing that I started checking the temperatures at the same time hackers were braking into servers in England and revealing the whole Global warming game is a Scam and a hoax. Check it out here whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/globalwarming.html

We had a covered dish reception... all my friends Southerners one and all, brought food for the wedding party, we provided the keg, champagne, and wedding cookie...a big custom chocolate chip cookie cake. It was a day I'll always have fond memories of.

Living in the South we don't see much snow here. Last time was about 20 years ago, while living in Atlanta it snowed pretty hard one night. The next morning my neighbor (obviously a Northern transplant) had gotten up early and shoveled his driveway, he then knocked on my door and offered to shovel mine for me (sweet really, me being a single lady at the time)... anyway, I thanked him and said... "Bless your heart that is so sweet of you to offer to do that for me... but, God put that snow there, and God will take it away... and nobody is going anywhere until he does!" It was a hilly neighborhood, and sure enough a pile of cars ended up at the bottom of the hill because even a Jeep can't get traction on Ice. That's how we do snow in the South.

Political cartoonists draw the Capital often in their comics... it's a very complicated building...so I just drew the dome bit... to illustrate a cute joke I got today... hope others think it's funny too.
If the Indians had given the Pilgrims a donkey instead of a Turkey, we'd all be having a piece of a-- next week. LOL

I'm so glad Ikon finished his UD, I know how special that title is, how hard it can be to achieve, and the bond you forge with a dog trained to that level... is like no other. I'm so glad Vail liked the portrait.

I find 'political correct' speech very annoying. Where is all this double speak taking us? What is the point? Just whose delicate sensibilities are being protected? Who started this nonsense, that's what I'd like to know?

I opened the back door headed to lunch and gasped, I do believe she and her baby did the same. I froze and so did they... for a long moment Moma deer and I locked eyes... I had to go so I slowly started walking, they jumped a ran a short way... not into the swampy woods... just a bit farther away... It was a magic moment for me.
This should be viewed by every AMERICAN....
warning us of the evils of (ism) communism.

Beetle Bailey was one of my Dad's favorite comics, he figured the artist MUST have been in the army to have done such a great job on it. I'm glad I got to see the World War II memorial when I was in Washington DC. My Mom and Dad went to the dedication ceremony.
