One of my.............

bigger blunders in life, was done this past week. Please allow me to bore you. My last post was due to some soul searching & thinking about days gone. Along with that came one un-kept promise. In my "This is my annual..." post, I wrote that the Mom of my deceased friend called to let me know what happened. During the very log conversation, she had me promise to go & visit her. I didn't know when or how, but I stated that I would. A bit of time passed, I lost her contact information........& thought that was it. Recently, I rediscovered it. Well, some of it. I found my friend's brother's (that's a mouthful) contact info. So a letter was written....................yes, pen & paper! My request was simple, could he pass the letter on to his Mom. I wrote that I had not forgotten my promise & I needed to keep it. Then came the blow (actually the e-mail). Not long ago, his Mom died of a heart attack. Not that is was any consolation, he was very happy that I had thought of his Mom.

Needless to say, I felt the fool . I felt miserable. Still do & will, no doubt, for a very long time. For the most part, one can redo things & try to make them right. Unfortunately, this isn't one of those times. It's amazing how one little thing can & will occupy a place in the memory archives.........probably forever.

One thing that I have now had pressed upon me. Don't waste any more time. It's too precious, and things can change without being ready for them...........................cheers

Between work &..........

health issues, I stayed away from this. Nothing (too) serious was wrong, just enough to constantly keep things out of sorts. For a few weeks, I have been wanting to get into posting something more regularly. I had, actually, I have, some ideas (imagine that, me with thoughts of interest?!), some artwork, just too little motivation. The simple reason, it's the time of year. For the answer to that, just go over to " Previous Posts", & scroll down to, "This is my annual....." (or March 2006, either way it'll be found). Little changes, except for another year passes

Once I get through this week, things should get a bit better. Cheers!

Twas the night before Christmas.............

and in the house,
Someone won't shut up,
And it isn't a mouse!

Unexpected guests stopped by. At least only one is annoying. Unfortunately, she's the reigning Queen of annoying. I said that I had a few minutes of work to finish. A fib.....yes. Does it bother! They are the relatives of"She Who Must Be Obeyed". As such,her headache. I guess that I can't hide any longer, I need to go be polite (why?).

To any & all Season's Greetings.

Now it's time to go back for a bit of "Cheers"

The art isn't mine

The image is from a December 1957 issue of McCall’s magazine. They told the story of Walt Disney’s Christmas Carol, a slightly different take on the Dickens’ classic. Its main character was a mouse.

It's time .................

to post another scribble from the archives. Not much going on here. Eye issues have kept me away from doing much (besides the day job). About all I have been able to create is a stack of hastily scribbled ideas...........that only I can translate (I hope?!). Until I do something new, I'll try to post the old stuff. Visuals are much better than my prattling!

This moment has been brought to you by lack of sleep, lack of money (never have enough), & the lack of anything better to do right now!

So I wasn't.............

sleepy last night. As such, I am now! Gotta stop getting up & reading. Here's another scrawl from the archives. Enjoy & criticize.........Cheers!!

Today has...............

turned into one of those blah days. As the day job is always slow after a "holiday" weekend, I've called it quits for the afternoon. I'm sorting out my archives (paper & pc), & found this. It was hastily scribbled during the hiatus. Just a couple of days after my surgery. One should be able to tell what kind of experience I had! Cheers!!

....does the adjusted scrawl look better? At the least, one can make out the coffee dribbles on the paper. Why did I use a 35mm camera for so long!?!?.........cheers!

My Hiatus...........................

has, more than likely, gone unnoticed. The quick scrawl over there, (done over a stale bagel) pretty much sums things up. I've just been waiting to fall off my twig. It was the first time I picked up a pencil in.......too long!

I cleaned out the old posts. Kept a few that I wanted to, & got shod of the worthless stuff. Now, let's see if I can actually be positive & productive!!

The previous and trivial ramblings have been brought to you by too much day job, the mixing of chaos & insanity, the digital camera (finally), & just no time for much else. Cheers!!
