Patricia, actually that is the member of the Tadpole family nobody ever talks about. We all just look at each other nervously...

Note to self: Never try and get revenge on the puppy for waking you up at Godaweful hours of the morning by taking her out and playing her hard and roughhousing...

Okay, now that I can type again.

Someone (*coughDADcough*) has been spoiling Tandy that she can't go into the back yard alone to go out. Being that she's a nine-month-old puppy, she tends to like to play... alot. Being that she's a hound, she tends to be ADHD about sniffing. So, you not only have to take her out, you have to keep reminding her she's out there to go to the bathroom (even at Midnight or 5 am). Sometimes that doesn't work.

I, myself, am nocturnal by nature and have had to reform my sleeping habits for first my Dad, now the puppy. (This, for some reason, makes me unusually cranky at 5,6,7 am, even with espresso.)

SO!

Today I get the bright idea, "Hey, let's take the puppy out and wear her out this afternoon so she'll be all happy that she played for 20 minutes and perhaps worn out the rest of the day!"

I should never try and be logical. Ever. *Points to her blonde roots*

We go out to play.

We play!

I throw the stick. She runs to get it. Tandy, however, does not get the concept of "bring back the bloody stick"... au contraire!

I throw the stick. She runs to get it. I run after her and have to try and nab it from her again as she runs around the yard. Good fun exercise for all!

Until you try and take the stick!

Now usually this is a relatively harmless game (except for me, whose out of shape, and could well have cardiac arrest for going over 1 MPH).

Not today!

Today I try and grab the stick, she tries to grab it back, and I end up with a nine-month-old eye-tooth in my middle finger (I'd hold it up and show you, but people'd get the wrong idea).

I immediately grab said finger and note that the pain goes down to the bone right below the ridge of the cuticle. Without preamble I turn around, using words a sailor would be shocked with, and walk slowly to the house, turning around only once to the puppy to inform her that today's play-time has come to a quick end after five minutes.

Then, I take care of said owie.

THEN!

I discover that you can't type with a bandage-covered square of cotton stuff over your finger. Hence, my short post before deciding I needed a nap to let said owie quit bleeding enough that I could remove said bandage-covered cotton square.

Now, I am off to dinner... where Dad is preparing steak... steak which, after being eaten by us humans, will go to said puppy, who is in the process of being spoilt rotten by said Dad.

End of Tale.

Hi, everybody. I know I said I wouldn't be here anymore, but something just drew me back. Actually, it is the decency of most of the people here. After reading a few message boards elsewhere,I realized this is the best place to be.

I won't be around a lot, but I will stop in from time to time. I am in the process of changing-this is why I posted on the Art Bell thread. In a way I seem to be doing the same thing-leaving my past behind, although i am not quite sure why. I have been burning a lot of bridges.

Something big is on my horizon, and I can't make it out as yet. I feel it, though, and I am busy preparing myself. My forty days in the desert.

So for now, I am still here, although not quite as often,and, since I am hypersensitive, any criticism will make me run away,so it is best that I keep most of my thoughts and opinions to myself for the time being. I will just keep my posts to a minimum. I do enjoy reading all of yours, though.

Ouch! Brighid, that must hurt like the very dickens! Be sure you keep putting fresh antibiotic and a fresh bandaid on it a couple of times a day--there's nothing like a puncture wound from a dog or cat tooth to get infected fast (and that's the voice of experience talking). And LOTS of chocolate, of course--it's full of antioxidents

Then there's my poor niece, who was cleaning around a heating vent the other day and caught her finger nail on a projecting bit of metal and it *ripped the nail right off*--! Owies all over the place today!

kathy, I'm so glad to see you back again! I hope that when this period of change is past, that you still want to hang out here. I agree about this being a really nice community.

Waxy, I'll bet you do that with the ones from the polluted ponds that are born with 2 tails, too, right?

Hi Kathy! *HUGS* Welcome back!

Patricia: And LOTS of chocolate, of course--it's full of antioxidents

Then... I, too, must be FULL of antioxidents (*says the blonde who has no idea what they are, except from commercials that say its good for you*) I can think of many things worse to be full of! *eyes the backyard that Dad said he wanted to tend to, and notes that its definitely full of it*

It's Grok (Stranger from a Strange Land, Heinlein) and it was very popular in the early 70's (way before your time, probably.) Great book, (looks at the empty shelf and puts that and Angels and Demons, Brown leaning against each other.)

Glad you like us a bit, Kathy. Changes on the path are always a struggle, perhaps that's why it takes so long. You're always welcome.

I totally Grok that, man.

Church of All Worlds (a pagan community) was formed around the concepts of Heinlein's book...

I won't go much further on that one.

Two pics to keep John satisfied while the ol' Muse continues to "cooper-ate":

The first one was done way back when all I had was a program called DrawPlus. I was in a somewhat "astral" mood that evening :

http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c129/RealWaxy/Waxpell.gif

Speaking of fantasy, I drew this for my sister awhile back for use as an embroidery pattern (I should ask if she ever did anything with it). The color was added in PSP:

Always kind of wondered about the "Church of All Worlds" (wonder if they eat each other after THEY die??) Sorry, John, (looks at Sal's menu) soilant green just doesn't appear here but I did find the cook book "How to Serve Humans" (puts on the old Twilight Zone DVD.)
Ah, the voice of Rod Serling always gave me shivers and enjoyment, so velvety!!

Triple Caramel Mocha and a chocolate muffin please.

I had friends in CAW (Church of All Worlds) when I lived in the same area they were in (Mendocino County.) Many of them are really nice people, actually. I don't necessarily agree with their tenants, however they were a wealth of neo-pagan knowledge!

whats the "Church of All Worlds" and why do they eat people?

soilent green eeooo!

look it might be something if i get this post to go through it would seem that some of my posting is crashing the puter. it getting real anoying. I have something to ask but now i dont know if i should. it seems that weird is all.

reading about the druids it might have something to do with that. one never knows where the UC will take them.

not spell checking this just to see if it works sorry for the mistakes. instead of creative writeing i went to creative spelling.

Vulkans take their time at many things so I just figured "Groking" would be the same thing.
The only thing I'm sure of is ,I don't like the word Grok! :-)

Oh, my favorite Meatloaf song is playing!!! Always loved "Paradise By The Dashboard Light"

When I was younger, I grokked Spock in a big way! My first year of college (1966) everyone on campus was reading "Stranger In A Strange Land" and when Star Trek came on, the campus was *empty*--everyone was parked in front of a TV set

Wild art, Waxy--I really like the idea of that dragon as a needlework pattern.

Note to buddie--Grok is a verb--to grok is to deeply understand and be attuned to someone/something. Pon far is a noun--a time of mating.

hey Patricia, I am painting calla lilies and I donít know what I am doing wrong. the color is so subtle that I think I am using too big a brush or something. what kind and what size of brush do you use and do you stick to a strict color pallet or do you do the glazing technique with layers of color. any advice would help. my art is traditionally blocky and bold and kind of funky and I just have trouble with subtlety.

I'm going to sneak this in here I don't want
to ask in Philosopy..donnawa's article ??

I'm totally naive to literature on Programming.
In years I have never read something so confounded.It's the sodomy part,is this old news to MC victims or something this person has released and it's knew?
I read the posts and it(sodomy)really was not
addressed or perhaps I missed it ??
A no comment is fine..

John, your wish is my command. My son's been insisting I do "figures" but I have snuck about and done two portraits.

Boo! It's me, Buddy! I've heard for a long while now- that sex opens a universal doorway- according to the tarot or caballah, I think.

John, I tend to use filbert type brushes a lot, since they're curved and leave no hard edges. I have them in an astounding variety of sizes at this point, from 10/0 to 8.

And Callas are subtly shaded with green in the white at the stem end--it shades up into an almost pure white.

I paint in a combination of methods--I always pre-mix 3 or 4 colors for each area, then paint it solidly with the medium tone and quickly work in the darker and lighter areas while the acrylic is still wet. Then when it's dry, I go back in and glaze--paint very thin washes of more transparent color over the basic layer.

I was just beginning to learn to use Alkyds (like oils only they dry overnight) back when I blocked 10 years ago and I intend to pick up where I left off. They can be used over top of dried acrylic areas (the old "fat over lean" rule) to smooth out blended parts that are too rough-looking. But once you've used them, you can't go back in with acrylics or any other water-based paints....that would be trying to put "lean over fat" and the water-based paint would bead up.

One thing that helps is to buy those little clear/translucent plastic tubs with snap-on lids to mix the colors in--they have them in most art/craft stores, right alongside the palettes. If I look at an area the next day and see an error, I have the precise shades to rework it with.

buddie, most people know little or nothing about mind control methods and once they hear of it, they tend to slip right back into denial due to the horrific nature of the trauma inflicted on the kids in order to fragment their personalities. There is lots of information in the Witnesses thread, if you decide to delve into it.

hey Patricia thanks that makes total since to me. I sometimes like to paint on the fly and donít do the steps but to premix the color is absolutely what I should so. thought I was going to have to channel Georgia O"keef. Diegoís callas are to stylized for me.

that and I need to take off these mittens when I pant. and I like the filberts to and that is what I use most actually

Lab great portraits!
