Ducks

Because I miss TexWisGirl - run-a-roundranch 
Gotta share some ducks

My pup and I go for nature walks
Our favorite spots see us so often
wild creatures don't bother to run away

 my 100 lb pupster assures me she will stand steady 
while I "point & shoot" with the teeny camera
SO:
Ducks

we see lots of creatures, but enjoy the adventure so much
we simply get happy and continue on our way.
Hope you are all safe, well and happy.
love & love,
-g-
PS - Dear Colorful World - I visit your beautiful blog regularly - 
have not found a way to comment - 
I'm leaving this little note full of love & appreciation for you.

Here Ya Go . . .

 put tiny camera in pocket
returned to wacky sculpture park
to share new installation with you


It's actually HUGE





One sign promises there's conservation projects going on
                                              the other asks people not to climb on art

This guy was moved to make room

Now the guy seems to be lurking
giggle

Note to Self

Put Camera in Pocket 
The pupster & I were walking in the crazy sculpture park
I only like the place when the pupster is with me
We noticed the giant man was moved
Today there's an enormous deer . . gotta remember to capture it for you.

Inspiring hero of the moment
George Whitefield
(some of us spell it Whitfield because that's how we say it.)
D'ya know about him?
He prayed one day we'd become 
"One Nation Under God"
complementary portrait from BBC

Reading
 added to my reading list by MonkeyWrangler
Do you already know this blog?

Saw last week:
The Women's Balcony (Trailer/video)

 There's a small theater that specializes in independent and foreign film.
The kind of stories I enjoy.
I try to attend early, so I'm often the only - or one of a very few -
in the theater - 
The place reminds me of San Francisco.
There was a unique film theater within walking distance
(loong walk)
from my home.

love & love,

Gotta Post - It's Friday!

Sometimes i think 
"Got Nothin' To Share"
But then
I remember it's Friday
time to connect with YOU.
Which is happy-making.

SO,  I'm not good at this, yet - 
I'm learning to sketch.

I do one sketch a day
(well, sometimes two, if i must miss a day)
This is a first try at the mailbox
just a few days ago.

promotional pen from the pupster's daycamp
and color pencil
on cost-effective paper -
(because, well, I'm learning . . . giggle)

Hmm - I think that's already five.
Now, I'm gonna post
and then zoom to your pages to see what you've shared.

love & love,

Baby Roo

I keep thinking about a story from "Winnie The Pooh"
about Baby Roo.
He did not want to take a bath
so, he ran away and hid.
Things did not go as planned
and he thought he could put everything right by jumping out and saying,
Ah Ha!  I'm NOT Piglet, I'm Baby Roo!

Pooh stories are a "go to" place of comfort
because a mother
stayed in the hospital with me
(instead of going home with her own child)
and read a book out loud to me
even when I was sleeping
so I would not be frightened.

When i went to find a picture to share with you
I found This Great True Story instead.

love & love,
