A Turkey Speaks...

"I have never understood
why anyone would
roast the turkey
and shuck the clams
and crisp the croutons
and shell the peas
and candy the sweets
and compote the cranberries
and bake the pies
and clear the table
and wash the dishes
and fall into bed
when they could sit back
and enjoy a hamburger."

Here's a sneak peek at one of my very special offerins' for November on The Humble Arts.

I'll keep you posted.

We Went For A Walk Today...

I told hubs to smile for the camera.
He's such a wise @ss...

That's one of the reasons why I love him so!!

We placed this silhouette on our old brooder house because it reminds me of my daddy. ♥

Hi Daddy!

October Is Fire Prevention Month Too...

This was a big deal back when I was a young'un. Especially back in 1970. (I was in 1st grade.)

The day before the firetruck and firemen came to our school to discuss the importance of fire prevention, we participated in a contest.
We were to draw and color a picture of the dangers of fire. The followin' day, the firemen would judge our pictures and pick the winner.

I drew "Never Burn Leaves."

To the left of the man is a pile of leaves burnin', not a Stegosaurus' back. The lil' blob to the right is his terrier doggie. Those are trees in the background.

Not only did I take first place, I won the top prize of $2.50. (Yep a whoppin' two dollars and fifty cents)
Woo-hoo!! I was as proud as a peacock and sittin' pretty on my mound of cash.

But I immediately ran to the candy store after I got out of school that day. I loaded up on Pixy Stix, Mallo Cups, Wax Bottles, and Razzles.

I blew my whole stash, but it was worth it.

I want to thank my mama for savin' all my art. I am forever grateful. ♥

C'mon, I'll Take You To See The Wind Turbines...

Most folks know them as giant windmills.

I'll take the long way, so you can enjoy the autumn views.

Hello ladies!

These things are freakin' enormous!!

We've got 'em all over the place in these parts. It's "strange" how we haven't reaped the benefits of them though.

But I'm guessin' G.E. has.

Didn't T. Boone Pickens get stuck with a whole sh*tload of them? About two million worth, I do believe.
Boy, he must have a huge garage.
