CBWC: All Things on a Farm I have a lot of farm pictures. It was hard to pick out the best ones so I went with my favorites.

Ten were just not enough. Thirteen Commandments for Seniors #1 – Talk to yourself. There are times you need expert advice. #2 – “In Style” are the clothes that still fit. #3 – You don’t need anger management. You need… Read More ›
BEGINNING TO BLOOM
FOTD – April 29 – The Garden Outside First, I am here to announce to the world that we have a tulip! One tulip 🌷 Yellow. Right in the middle of the garden. It doesn’t look much like a garden… Read More ›
SKETCHBOOK 61 – TWO GOLDFINCH
I’m not up to doing a lot of anything much today, but this drawing is ready to go. Two pretty bright goldfinch. Can’t you hear them singing?
Garry and I got our second booster this week. Garry had almost no reaction. I thought I was on edge of death. It was a lot like the reaction I got after the second part of the original vaccination, but… Read More ›
FLICKERS, FUCHSIA, FOLIAGE AND MORE
CMMC – APRIL ALPHABET LETTER “F” START OR END
How easy it is to shop online? I spent the last 3 hours searching for an effective flea and tick repellant for the Duke. There are some new products on the market including an edible tick and flea repellant, but… Read More ›
EDGES AND LEDGES!
CFFC: Edges and Ledges In a rare act of cooperation, the photographs I was looking for popped up immediately. Garry used to like edges and ledge, but that was a while back. I don’t think he’d be out there now.
SKETCHBOOK 60 AGAIN – THE DUKE
The Duke rests quietly next to me on the sofa, sometimes unmoving for hours. He makes a great model. I actually drew this about a week ago, but didn’t finish it until a couple of days ago.
SKETCHBOOK 60 – THE BIG PICTURE
I’ve been drawing small pictures as my wrist was healing. Last night, I decided to try something bigger. Definitely not an attempt to look “photographic.” I don’t think art should be photographic, at least not in this century. We already… Read More ›
EARTH DAY AND SHARING
SHARE YOUR WORLD & BE KIND TO EARTH! 4-26-2022 With all of the mess going on across the world, I still think trying to get our planet healthy — for us — should be our number one priority. It isn’t… Read More ›
ORCHIDS FROM A DIFFERENT ANGLE
FOTD – April 26 – Violet Orchids I was in the kitchen looking into the dining room and I loved the way those tall violet orchids looked in front of the French doors. Usually I just look, but this time,… Read More ›
THE RMV MIRACLE
Today a miracle occurred. I got my driver’s license. The official REAL one with the star that means I can (gasp) fly on an airplane! That I somehow managed to score a license feels miraclulous, especially because I am STILL… Read More ›
SKETCHBOOK 59 – A NEW SQUIRREL AND A PROFILE
Among the things I have struggled with — other than squirrels — are people. I haven’t gotten people right yet. My main problem seems to be drawing an adult face rather than a child. My faces always appear to be… Read More ›
TWO MORNINGS IN PEACHUM, VT
On two separate mornings, the same scene — well, almost exactly the same scene. A clear day and a cloudy morning. Getting a new computer has also meant a lot of reorganizing, especially of photographs which have never been well… Read More ›
MY BRIEF CAREER AS DEPUTY ANIMAL CONTROL OFFICER
I live in a small town. Just under 15,000 people call Uxbridge home. The village, or as we say around here, “downtown,” has a classic brick town hall, circa 1879, an elegant old library (1885), and a few other historic… Read More ›
A TIME FOR EVERY THING
ECCLESIASTES 3:1-8 For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:A time to be born, and a time to die;A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;A time to kill, and… Read More ›
BARNEY GOOGLE WITH THE GOO-GOO-GOOGLY EYES
Garry and I were watching “Oklahoma,” the 1955 musical Saturday night. I grew up with this album playing and it’s embedded in my psyche. I think my mother wore out the grooves on one LP and bought another to replace… Read More ›
SKETCHBOOK 59 – IT’S A SQUIRREL!
You may not remember, but I spent quite a while when I first started drawing trying to draw a squirrel that looked like (more or less) a “real” squirrel. Or enough like a real squirrel to not look like a… Read More ›
WITH REGRETS – RICH PASCHALL
Regrets Part IV, Love Lost, by Rich Paschall “‘Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.” – Alfred Lord Tennyson If you can, imagine not giving love a chance. People who passed by love… Read More ›
