Quite Possibly

gay clown

the gayest thing I've ever drawn...also gay in a happy clown kinda way.....there should be more gay, happy opposed to the other kinds

btw sassymonkey, if you haven't figured it out yet...this post contains clowns....sorry

real world work is kinda hectic right when that happens...I am behind on most things internet related....I should have gone to clown school

and for the total opposite of happy, gay least in my sketchbooks....

Phone Phase

phones drive me crazy in reality, but the old ones are kinda dad worked for Ma Bell for a long time....when we were young kids, he did a stint as a lineman...drove the boxy Bell van, had the climbing spikes and everything....

one of the coolest thing on his toolbelt was his test set....great for playing Star Trek, Star Wars and Rat Bastards btw

we always seemed to have some odd phone around too, like a Mickey or Snoopy...they were push button thugh and something awful happened to Snoopy's head, causing it to be caved in on one side...tragic, but the phone was still functional so it lasted years that way....

it's kinda amzing that corded phones are not the norm anymore....too bad in some ways, because those heavy duty ones from the 40's and 50's weighed a ton and were fun to take apart...also an effective weapon when thrown or launched...

and you can't talk about vintage phones without mention the Pink Princess...they were dreamy

anyway, more vintage phone info and pictures here...

from Charlie Gibson's lips

he has spoken, it has been covered it on the ABC evening's on
their website even...

don't be surprised by this like I was....

but there are a bunch of mommy bloggers out there...maybe even 15,000...hell, some of those women are even making money doing it...I could hardly believe it

I wonder if those political types have ever considered the's almost legit now and may be catching on

and btw ABC...just googling mommy bloggers, returns almost 3 million hits alone...thanks for the newsflash

I'm feeling musical

chesney album done right

let's all be honest....isn't this is the album Kenny Chesney should have released recently?

I'm just saying.

2 things

that spark heated musical discussions between me and J

1 - what's more important?...the singer or the songwriter?

2 - is it possible to love Robert Plant, yet not care for Led Zeppelin?

this is serious stuff....

and while I'm on the subject of Robert Plant, he and Alison Krauss are releasing an album at the end of this month...Raising Sand...can't wait for that...the liner notes blurb on amazon sounds excellent....

lucy gets a bath

how can two women and six animals generate so much laundry???

they aren't big animals....and neither us, nor them have been mud wrestling lately...hell, it hasn't even rained to speak of in months....

so why is this a double-digit laundry load day???

where is my crown??????

How appropriate after this weekend's trip and since I saw it a couple of spots..why was such a great self portrait? says I'm a Nerd Queen.  What are you?  Click here!

though I was robbed in sci-fi and what's up with that dumb/dork/awkward score??? I'm a social butterfly


there is a special

place in my heart for renfest festies....yes indeed there is....many more pictures here, more to be added

it has been too long since I've been to one of these things....based on the amount of cleavage present, it won't be long until we go again....

exciting purchases for me...

chain mail bracelet

these festivals are how us geeks interesting, colorful people met up before the wonder of online social networking...nice to see things haven't changed

helpful hint if you plan on attending in warm weather...avoid all costumed individuals late in the day as those heavy costumes apparently don't breathe....

I don't mind admitting

I'm totally excited about our trip to the Charlotte renfest this weekend...opening day too...rumor has it there will be vampires...

I am beside myself actually...and a hotel with wifi and a jacuzzi...I may decide to run away and join a renfest instead of the circus

Fort Gangrene

over the weekend I decided to attack the overgrown wisteria, kudzu and trees growing in and around our backyard fence...there was a tremendous pile of branches, vines pieces and other stuff after I finishedj...I managed to get scratched and bruised pretty good, thus the gangrene

I also decided to dress up the rusty old swing set by spray painting it with leftovers I had from other turned out to be sort of a cotton-candy-camo...

then I decided to use some of the larger branches and wisteria trimmings to start a fort....I added a table to a nearby tree, moved the fish chimnea and brought the giant fiberglass panther it's a good spot to contemplate the world and drink beer...I also have the perfect trebuchet shot at the redneck's storage shed, should I decide to take it

do I know you

Scout has no shame and was properly re-introducing herself....if she keeps it up, she will be contemplating her world from a different spot in the yard
