Mom! Mom!
I finally figured out how to
work this video-cam- kind of..
I know the picture remains
stationary...but can you
hear me talking?
Can you?
I am sending you this because
I want you to know that
you were
Dead Wrong!
Remember when I was
a teenager and
you kept telling me that
drugs would ruin my life?
That too much acid
would fry my brain?
Well! Lookit me, Ma!
Here I am!
48 years old and doing just fine.
I've been painting, too...
Yes I have!

Behind me is one of my
best pictures so far.
I call it
Study In Orange
and I'm gonna sell
it for about
a gazillion bucks
to the big art dealer
down the street...
although he seems to be
"out of the office"
everytime I stop by.

Well, anyway...
just wanted you to know that.

I'm doing fine and
many thanks to Daddy
that left me all his money
so I can buy more art supplies.

I hope you are getting by
on the $468. a month
you get from Social Security...
That's all for now, Mom.

That painting should sell well at Halloween.

Oh, Girl! You just won't DO!

I'm so glad you like the little kitchen---I've waited so long, thinking that when THIS is finished and THAT is done, or even when all the shelves in the den are straight---THEN I'd clear out that pass through and put in the little kitchen properly. So then came the day, and it's such a bright and cheery little place---couldn't you just sit down and DWELL?

Those charming tiny dishes are from BitsyNest, I think---they are two-piece and so small that the littlest movement would knock them rolling, so I secured them into the already-filled and decorated hutch I got from Trishiesminicorner. Sheesh!! I sound like one of those vacuous starlets walking the red carpet, naming off who she's WEARING.

You stay well and warm way up there!

Diana, I know that they call a one color piece art...but Hmm? My neighbor lady (in town) painted a picture in all brown and need I tell you how that looked? LOL No shapes, no lines, it looked like a palate on which,she mixed her browns. I keep wondering if she had mistakenly framed the palate instead of the canvas. hehe. Let's just say, I never made an offer. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

Good one! Not sure that is art. If I could paint it, it definitely isn't art! lol

Have a wonderful weekend! As always, thank you for your support!
