Crumble In

i was doing something else altogether
When I stopped to read an article from
Atlas Obscura
and found 

My grandfather ate this regularly.

Wow!
His Life Story - as i know it 
doesn't match the history
in the nifty article
BUT
Sure makes me happy to see it
and remember my Grandfather.

Cartoon Dancing

maybe next time.



This music made me feel like "Cartoon Dancing"

Cave Painting

A few weeks back I was thinking
maybe. someday I'll be able to draw like the cave paintings in France.

Then, I lucked in to a drawing course from BYU
AND
The First class 
we drew stuff that looked
 like it came from those same caves
It's TRUE

STILL
I don't draw as well as ancient mankind
giggle

class notes
not as nifty as cave paintings

me?  I'll persevere

Flamingo

I can hear "put down those crazy pencils before someone gets hurt!"  
And - these guys are from two different places . . 
I have a habit of filling a page with whatever fits . . . 
But, a child in a Flamingo Suit . . 
even if the pencils have a hard time with "Flaming Pink" . .
 it was worth the craziness . . . 
Still Laughing . . 
 Hard. . . 
the colorful shirt guy came from a class I decided not to pay attention to . . 
so, couple of days ago . . . he showed up here while i was listening to a lecture . . .
 they are so close together on the page . . . 
well, there you go and there you have it.  
I gotta hide those crazy pencils for a while . . . 
(Still Laughing!!!)

Take Time for YourSelf . . .

Time Just for My Self?
I took a little today.
After attending to scheduled appointments I stopped for "a cuppa"
and claimed a corner to read a little bit. 

Except, i had a hard time keeping quiet
BECAUSE
I decided to read:
James Thurber.
 
What a delight.
His sketches are included
but best of all
at least to me
is the HUMOR.
 
Yay!!! for some humor.
 
In case introductions are called for:
James Thurber
 
You don't have to spend any do-re-mi.
The public library will have his work.
There's LOTS to choose from.
 
go ahead - give your life a little giggle room.
 
I highly recommend it.
 
love & love,
-g-
