Sitting on the porch drawing Kit McKlaw, a big possum just tiptoed across in front of the porch, real quiet.
I thought it was an alligator.

I received an interesting package from Larry Judd yesterday. I wonder: what could be in it?
Hung the large canvas prints at Myxmedia yesterday. They look great. Now we have to hang the 22-ft banner! Big Job.

Finished framing all the large canvases for the DOGBAD Show this afternoon. Shockingly beautiful if I may say so! Glad I got heavy frames

Spent all day schlepping glass around and having it cut, then delivering it to the gallery. No fun, really. I have to paint, not drive!

Got a good deal of painting done over the weekend. Saw Ed Mell today & told him how much fun I'm having. "It's a good racket!", he kidded.

Been Laying out the DOGBAD Show Catalogue (or Dogalogue, if you prefer). First time using Adobe InDesign. Think I got it nailed.

Have not posted the past several days- I forgot to do. Too busy painting. Tired, headache, not feeling too chipper either. Persevere.

I created a DOGBAD Facebook group tonight and invited just about everyone I have an address for, to the show Nov 13 @ myxMedia.

Mothers Day with Mommy Away

My mom passed away December 6, 2009. Mrs Johnita Adelaide Flemington Steinhilber suffered a bad fall in April broke her shoulder and never recovered. This is the first Mothers Day since she’s been gone. I miss her more every day. She gave me my life (along with my dad, of course!), much of my sense of humour, art skills, moral and intellectual compass, musical taste, language skills, fixed my meals, made my clothes brought me to school, brought me home, served me orange juice, got mad but tolerated my drowning my grits with Worcester sauce, attended Yale when women weren’t allowed, flew airplanes, practiced law, continued her education well past retirement age, worried about us, and I could go on forever. I miss you Mommy, Daddy misses you even more if I know anything, Mica misses you and everybody who knew you misses you. I love you. We love you.

Why do people vote against their own interests?

This article appeared on the BBC news website today, having been broadcast on Radio 4 this week. This perceptive observer explains that in order to succeed in the US political arena, the candidates with logic on their side must behave as reprehensibly as the anti-logic parties, by so doing appealing to the largest number of voters. Unfortunately though, the people to whom a reasoned argument appeals won't want to vote for them...this is great for comedians, not so great for citizens.

Perhaps what we need is a national wife, not a "leader": someone who can quietly keep everything running, and is smart enough to let a fool go on thinking he is "right" & that he is running the show when he is not, and that everything is his idea.
I suspect our problems are more chemical than ideological, or anything else. Reduce the testosterone levels to bare minimum, and see if things don't improve.
