Surviving Summer - Stream of Consciousness

Summer Drains My Energy
but here is my plan of attack
I promise to find a place that is cool
a place to plant my feet in a pool
Now this is not too easy
since pools make me queezy just thinking
of all the possible germs
what the hey
i gonna find that pool anyway

if not, i'm gonna find some ice cream
or ice cubes
or iced tea and maybe even
mint leaves
possibly an old time fan
or water balloons
or even the good old sprinkler
and i don't care who sees me :)

Territory of Moses and Rockwell, NY & NE

Last week while in NY, VT, and MA we were able to get over to see the Norman Rockwell space in Stockbridge, MA. Wow what a gorgeous place he had to work. I drew some of the lawn ornaments but have yet to scan them in. Also in Mom's (Gramma Betty) town of Hoosick Falls I found the storefront where Grandma Moses work was discovered. The store is now "Bagels N More" but they still have the plaque that states something like Grandma Moses paintings were in this window for a Ladies Auxillary Sale. (I will get G.B. to write down the exact wording for me.

Also kind of neat, the town has a mural by either her son or grandson and if I have a pic I will post later on. I sure hope your artwork is going well and if ever you get to thls part of the country I am sure you will catch the spark too. I think that there is soooooooo much to look at and paint, draw or photograph! Wow, now that was fun. Hmmm, now what am I gonna draw today? I think I'll have to think on that or maybe I will just read my Norman Rockwell books again :)

Day 3 - No Coca Colas

After my birthday I have been trying to give up my favorite drink - Coca Colas. Unfortunately, I could drink up to 8 a day. Giving them up is more difficult than not smoking to me. I never smoked so giving that up is not something that would be difficult for me. Let me see if I can make it to day 4 - no cokes.

Hope all are well and thanks for visiting!
