Long Time No Post

Seems like ages. I have been so busy, that it's hard to keep up.  I am getting ready to show ALL my comics to my class so that I can finalize enough for a book.  Going to get hints and ideas and critiques  - love the idea and am also a bit scared.  I am spending this weekend inking, finishing drawings, scanning, printing.

This is how it all started!!!

Wish me luck.

Animal Wednesday - Birds! (and a frog)

We were biking in Florida last week, off road and in the hot hot sun.  DH stopped suddenly and indicated that I should slow down, get off the bike and follow him.  I did of course, and saw this guy up in a tree.   Bad pics of course, as he was far away and I only had my phone with me, but oh - so glorious and beautiful.  We had binoculars with us and got a really good look at the majesty and beauty of this bald eagle.

In addition, we saw the Eagles nest - it is enormous, about 8 feet across. 

You can just imagine baby eagles being raised, generation after generation, in this nest.  

On another bike ride we had this hawk follow us around for a few miles. Did we look like mice?  I can't imagine that we did, but sometimes these birds seem curious about humans. Perhaps they also know that our thumping noises sometimes scare little mice out into the open. 

A more common siting was this bird, waiting for us to throw it something.  Nope, sorry bird, no snacks for you. 

Finally on a late night walk we saw this little guy - crouching down trying to avoid us.  We took a few pics and then left him alone, he was so cute. 

Happy Birdie/Animal Wednesday

A Conversation.

Here is a perfect example of Venus and Mars.

The scene: getting ready to go out to dinner, each person in the duo getting dressed and generally trying to look good.

Me:  Does my hair look OK?  (Translation: all I want to hear is "yes, great")

Him:  Well, I think that you should decide whether it should be long or short, right now it's in between.  You should just make a decision.   Your roots are showing a bit, but not too bad and if you fluff it up you hide that, but I like the highlights that you did.

Me: !!!!!

Question: Does this happen in your house?
