Everything and nothing

 

Okay, the great ride finally happened and it was as much fun as I had hoped and I finally understood why Man-wonder didn’t argue so much about me wearing his Ranger Rick hat. He knew I’d be wearing a pair of honking big puffy ear protectors (I got the lime green ones) and the only thing that fit under them was a baseball style hat.

I should have known he was being too nice. . .

My biggest discovery of all—bum muscles I’d forgotten I owned and, two days later, learned that they can cramp just like any other muscle.

Holy muscle spasms Woman-Wonder!

Aside from that spasm of fun, things have been quiet around here; mostly due to the heat. Our biggest excitement is arriving at the beach of our local city park shortly after dawn

morning cometh

so Man-wonder can join the others patiently trying to lure a pink salmon onto their lines.

Me? I find a nice bench to sit on and do a little writing, a little reading and lots of chatting with whoever comes by. I ended up sharing the bench with a local artist. I love it when life gives you gifts moments like that. I was able to pick his brain on watercolor paints, brushes, types of paper to use and why and mini-lessons on how he achieved some of the effects in his work. I even managed to snap a picture of his 30-year-old paint box and hear the story of why it was given to him.

I do deserve a smack upside the ear though because I didn’t think to snap any pictures of his work.

What a big goombah eh?

But I did get his card—which just happens to include his website;

So maybe I’m just a medium-sized goombah . . .

    • Hi
      If you are using WordPress it’s easy to follow their instructions in choosing what style, etc. you want from what they offer. It’s a case of snooping, studying and deciding. That’s all

      Good luck!

  2. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I
    provide credit and sources back to your blog? My blog is in the exact same niche as yours and my visitors would certainly benefit from some of the information you provide here.
    Please let me know if this alright with you. Thank you!
