Punny Monday

If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.



(footnote:I'm running out of good puns so I've decided to switch to PARAPROSDOKIANS.
PARAPROSDOKIANS (Winston Churchill loved them) are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected; frequently humorous.)

Another Face Class

So......I took another Face class!!! Surprise, surprise, right? LOL 
This one was Making Faces with Lynn Whipple. One of the classes hosted/offered by Carla Sonheim.
I had never taken one of Lynn's classes but after reading the reviews and knowing it was hosted by Carla I jumped right in. 
And am I glad I did!
I no longer think of myself as a beginner so some of what was presented I was already aware of, but I ALWAYS learn something. Plus a class has a way of pushing your limits that you wouldn't necessarily do by yourself.  
And I wasn't disappointed.
I know I have my own style, and no matter how hard I try and emulate some of the artists I admire it comes out me anyway....but......I have to say, with Lyn's guidance, I turned out some not too shabby pieces that I quite like. 
It's a good day when I can add to my growing pile of 'friends'. 
Here are a few of the better ones.

Thoughts on a Thursday

Husband and my mother used to tease me about who had it worse…my mother for having lived with me through the ‘formative years’, aka the teenage years, or Husband for being married to me.  (nice, right? Lol)
My mother always claimed she won on the basis of seniority. She knew me longer than Husband…end of discussion.
Which got me to thinking…she died when I was 45. I met Husband when I was 22. That means when I’m 68 (not that far away now) he’ll be able to claim me on seniority. He will have known me for longer than my mother did.

I’m not sure if that’s sad or funny……..

Punny Monday

War does not determine who is right - only who is left.

Progress………More or Less

Since the GREAT A/C EXPLOSION OF 2017 and replacement thereof, we’ve had to put the house renovations on hold.
But……I’ve been able to squeeze out a few finishing touches in the bedroom.
The Big Red Chair will eventually reside in the living room, replacing Husband’s recliner (YAY! sshhhh….don’t tell him I said that…) and a new Big Grey Chair will be put in the bedroom.
But for now I feel I can call the bedroom/bathroom ‘finished’!

At least I have a nice place to retreat to when the rest of the unfinished house gets on my nerves.
