Dog #3 08.11.03

So I’m beginning to work on the two little dogs for the upcoming “beach” party/art auction in october. Just as I am getting close to being finished, Julie contacts me about doing another large dog. Anyhow, I could use the money and of course, the second one was much easier to do than the first. I said yes with the understanding that I won’t be ...

a vampire? 08.08.03

Ok, today someone asked me (jokingly, of course) if I was a vampire. Do you know how many times I’ve been asked that? Or a witch? Or if I’m wearing pantyhose when I’m not (white ones, of course…) Or I startle people at night? Honestly, I’ve GOT to come up with a good, witty answer for this one. Being a pale pasty kind of person, ...

I know that the professional disaster management crew is working REALLY hard to try to clean things up so that all of us can get back to a more normal routine.

a really icky day. fire, feelings, and all that other stuff 07.24.03

I am so glad yesterday is over. Now, personally I’ve had some really BADDDD days, and I wouldn’t exactly put this one in that category YET but I have no idea what the followup to yesterday will be. First, I get totally soaked walking to work. Yes, I had a portable lightning rod… (I mean, umbrella….) but the sky was just pouring buckets literally…Everything in ...
