BE PREPARED TO BE AMAZED, TO GAWK IN WONDER, TO SCRATCH YOUR HEAD IN CONFUSION, OVER WHAT YOU WILL FIND HERE…..:))
Let the Randomness Begin:
Leavin’ on a Jet Plane
Today’s the day I leave for France. My laptop is tagging along with the intention of delivering you blow by blow action of the French countryside. I will suffer the indignities of the non-reclining airplane seats, 5 hour layovers and gain the 10 15 extra pounds that will inevitably attach itself to me after consuming large quantities of French pastries. I will return on the 24th to a very irritable Eddie and a pile of dirty laundry.
Aren’t you glad it’s me going instead of you:)??
They Did What?
After watching this, somehow making a bold brushstroke doesn’t seem nearly as intimidating;) Or scrapping a painting that got off to a bad start and ended up in the ditch. I’m jus’ sayin’…

Pup Tents for Your Paints
I love paint. I use lots and lots of it—as I have been heard to mutter before, you can’t do a million dollar brush stroke with a nickel’s worth of paint. I tend to squeeze a lot out on my palette when I paint, which means I often have a decent pile left at the end of the painting. The last time I checked, a big tube of Cad Orange was about 62 bucks. Gulp! That’s why I was pleased as punch to discover Paint Savers at one of the last workshops I taught.
Fluent in French Overnight
Nothing like heading to a French speaking place… when all you speak is hillbilly! It’s enough to get one’s butt in action looking for apps to help in asking those all important questions like….WHERE’S THE NEAREST BATHROOM? Understandably I was pretty pumped to discover the Google Translate app. Suitable for your smart phone and iPad. You can either text your words into it or speak it–and it will do the translation for you–in really large font. Believe it or not, it even understood me when I spoke into it, so you know it’s REALLY HI-TECH:)) Below is a screen shot from my iPhone with it in use:))
Like the Coast of Florida–Just with More Elephants
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this movie–exotic, visual feast of color, sights and sounds with layers of meaning. I wanna go see it again:))! Get yourself to the theater this week-end—and be sure and get the large bucket of popcorn.

And there you have it. A potential retirement spot, pigment pup-tents, reading, writing and arithmi-apps, and a whole slew of things you shouldn’t try at home. Please behave yourself this week-end. Or not. I for one will be out of the country so I can’t tell on you. What happens in the US stays in the US:)))
P.S. Please feel free to inflict share my blog with anyone you think would be annoyed by enjoy it:)))
