It's funny, buddie - I had to go back to the PhotoBucket site to remind myself which pic that was, as I couldn't even find it on my hard drive. Except for the 'diamonds', that's similar to the sort of pics I did alot as a *beginner*. Ah, the irony...

Wax,

I came here because my posting box wouldn't come up on whats happening.

Awhile back the expression "thump your magic twangger, froggie" came in my head. Wasn't that on T.V. long time ago? What was the name of that show? Weren't you kinda' messing around with that expression up on whats happening just now?

Mama, I don't recall ever hearing such a phrase, so maybe I was tapping into that Akashic Record I keep hearing about. I just saw SC mention the blues and took a stab at my own mini-song.

So there was a proto-Waxy back in the Golden Age of Radio/TV!!! I'll have to read up on this fellow. Maybe I've gotten myself caught up in some sort of archetype or morphic resonance!!!

O M G....! I remember that show Every kid I knew loved Andy Devine, but he creeped me out. I kept that to myself, of course, and professed to worship him, but he reminded me of Bad Things. And I still don't know what they were or who it was that he reminded me of or why I can't remember better. When he played one of my cowboy heros' sidekicks, I used to look away from the screen when he was on it. I always felt guilty about that afterwards, as if it was unkind.....

Sal, I need (not want, but NEED) some comfort food. So how about meatloaf, mashed 'taters and greasy gravy? And Tandy can lick the plate

Patricia,

I know exactly how you feel euweeeeeeeee Andy Divine and Buffalo Bob and a few more. I watched some of them 'cause my friends did but in my heart wish I were in my room playing my records or playing the piano or out in the woods talking to my nature stuff. But that was odd-ball and square . Andy Divine was in a Twilight Zone episode but I can't recall, can you?

I don't know why all this stuff is coming to me. I feel like a fool.

You're not a fool, Mama Shine. Just waxing nostalgic. I remember "Plunk your magic twanger, Froggy" from radio on Saturday mornings at my grandmother's, with my great-grandmother sitting in her chair. I remember Midnight the cat, but don't remember from which show. I didn't think anyone else but me remembered "Froggy" and his "magic twanger", so I've mentioned it to few - but occasionally the phrase crops up in my mind.

We (who remember) are just more well seasoned than younger folk.

Snooze sounds good, Pat. Think I'll have a nice chocolate shake before curling up. Thanks, Sal.

Moonhowler,

That's quite a tooth tale up there. Did you save it? My grandmother saved her gall stones in a jar in her bedroom, used to creep in there to eyeball them and she'd get mad. Wonder why she kept them if she didn't want them viewed.

It's alittle late for me to order, so I'll be on my way.

I like to howl at the moon--it's good for you.

Naw (pardon the pun!), I didn't save it. Too icky. Besides, I forget to tell you guys that when I finally was able to dislodge it from my windpipe, it bounced on the chair and fell between my legs. I was wearing slacks, but the dentist would not even look at it's landing place, and gloves or not, I daintily picked it out from between my legs and dumped it on the tray.

I wanted to see my gallstones from The Year of The Hospital, but was too afraid of the sourpuss nurses to ask for them. So I'll never know, it will be one of life's sweet mysteries for me. There are some freaky women who actually make necklaces and/or bracelets out of their gallstones, depending upon the kind they are. They come in all shapes and sizes, some even look like stars and others like beer barrels. Wonder if the men do that, too?

Yee-haw, y'all. Nighty-night.

The surgeon who painstakingly removed a large number of fibroid tumors from my uterus piled them up very neatly in a pyramid and took a Polaroid of them--! But he never asked me if I wanted them. And I didn't get my gallstones, either. My niece (or someone--can't remember who for sure) said that some are iridescent and make nice jewelry, but my surgeons said that most are ugly lumps of solidified fat. Eeeuw.

Love the pumpkin, buddie!!! Nice work on the features--I like them to be scary, since otherwise, how effective will they be at scaring off the evil spirits?!

Sal's is deader than a door-nail tonight.... Methinks I need a nightcap, so wake up, SAL! How about a nice hot cup of decaf tea and maybe one of those creampuffs under the glass dome in the cooler--they'll go bad if we don't eat 'em, right? [looks innocently around]

Within a couple of days, I should have a new Lily picture up on Sal's wall--!!! First piece of computer art completed in AGES and the first one using Lily in an image that includes MC elements (Monarch butterflies). It's in the postwork stage right now and I hope to have it done by the weekend...maybe sooner if I can just remember how to get Photoshop to work right.....

Sooo, here you are, Patricia. I didn't see your posts for a long time and got worried. Wish I could see some of your art work.

I never have ordered at Sal's before ( wish I knew the Sal story and how to understand when ya'll talk back and forth to Sal)

Maybe you could order me a big bowl of gumbo.

If you go back in the archives above, you'll find links to bunches of artwork, both mine and other peoples. Just click on an archive and scroll through rapidly looking for the blue link text. If I had more time, I'd repost it, but I'm really spread thin these last couple of weeks

John began this--again, just start at the top, very first archive and you'll see how cute the idea is....

I'm glad that L. A. B.'s stuffie is getting some attention--he looked forlorn...as only an abandoned stuffed bear can look.

Here's the (low-res, I apologize) new Lily pic. And here's the crop of her face. And looking at them, I realize that I still have some work to do on getting the likeness correct...that's almost, but not quite, Lily.

That old quickie portrait of her (way up in the corner) that I did a while back is from a different angle and from it, she looks right. But all the other images I've used her model in look subtly wrong to me.....time to do some fine-tuning of the model, methinks....mouth's wrong, somehow.

Sal, I need a large iced tea with lemon "to go" and maybe one of those nice orange/currant scones, too

Thanks, Janey--all my other image files using my 3D model of Lily (in mind control-related pictures) mysteriously became corrupted, so I gave up for a long time. But since this one worked OK, I'll start doing more computer art with her.

Next I plan to start work on a non-MC image of her as a faerie with gossamer green wings, but I need to find a local Oak branch to photograph to photo-composite her onto in Photoshop. Can't find a high-enough resolution photo of one online....

Lily, as a faerie, thats what I wished she was sitting on that marble back and white floor. When I looked I heard heavy, deliberate footsteps on that floor, like they were coming down a hall--I wanted her to fly.

Have you ever done a version of Lady of the Lake? I have a poem I did and part of a verse went:

What emerged from her robes-
by an act of surrender
was the brilliance and shimmer
of gossamer splendour.

When I saw Night Arising, I thought , now would sort of look like I'd want my Lady to look but , not exactly.

Mama Shine, that's how I almost did that Monarch picture--with faerie wings! The artist who did the butterfly models that I used included a pair of just wings to be used for faerie pics. I'll probably use them in that Oak faerie one.

What a beautiful bit of poetry! I've come very close to both painting the Lady of the Lake and also doing computer art images of her. On my studio wall is a framed print of Waterhouse's painting of The Lady of Shalott and for some reason it makes me think of the Lady of the Lake everytime I look at it. It's another of those thousand ideas I've had that are "on hold" due to lack of time

my gosh, Patricia, your artwork always moves me.
I have a drawing of a Faerie-Monarch-i did a few years ago-when I get a new scanner I will try to post it here.

i viewed your work early this mrnig-around 4 AM. Imagine my surprise when I opened today's newspaper and saw a photograph of a child that looked almost identical to your Lily-flaxen hair, luminous blue eyes, vulnerable mouth.She was the photo for some community event, but it was just a face shot-the first thing I thought was-Pat's Lily!

You know, kathy, I occasionally see a young person who reminds me sharply of Lily too--it's always a slight shock, especially here in a part of the country that has proportionately fewer blue-eyed blondes than other places. And thank you for the compliment on the image--I still don't have Lily's likeness exactly right from all angles, but eventually I hope to get it corrected. And I'm beginning the next one this week---the Oak tree/gossamer winged faerie one. I hope you will get around to posting your faerie, too--after the food, this Art Wall is my favorite part of Sal's!

Pat, I tried to post over the weekend re Lily, but my computer is really screwed up ....again...! Anyway, Lily is beautiful. I hope you finish your next work soon and let us see her with her gossamer wings.

All you artist-types here do such great work. Surely wish I were a real artist.


Gonna have a nice cup of hot chocolate, if you please, Sal. Have an appointment with a pain specialist later today. Not looking forward to it. I have enough pain already. We who have CFS/CFIDS/FM have a saying: You can always tell the patients with CFS (etc) because they are too tired to go to the doctor.

I hate seeing new doctors. They always have to be educated anew. Crapola and nighty-night. I'm sneaking a nap under the blanket until it's time to go to the doc. G-R-O-A-N !!

Oy. Know what you mean about having to 'educate' doctors when you go to a new one. Once your medical condition becomes complicated enough, going to someone new feels like taking an illiterate person and teaching them not only to read, but also to grasp the entire body of human literature in about 15 minutes!

So I wish you luck today! Little progress on the gossamer-winged fae, due to The Skeptic bringing home company this evening for dinner and my house being a total wreck--I've spent most of my time cleaning and straightening up. Very little art time, unfortunately. But tomorrow, I swear...!

Moonhowler,

How was your doc visit? Usually by the time you finish educating them you are so frustrated you forget why you are there in the first place. Hope this will be the miracle doc that will make your pain ease up.

I'll have hot chocolate and an order of toast with lots of butter--maybe some grape jelly.
Like a bolt out of the blue,
Fate steps in and sees you through.....

Well, it was only the first visit so I'm not giving a total thumbs-up yet, but b'gosh and b'gorra he actually seems to know his onions. He didn't give me the old "it's probably all in your head" gobbledygook. He actually knows about pain and it's manifestations. Plus, he is also a neurologist and I needed to find a new one. My HMO no longer covers the neuro guy I've been seeing for years and with whom I was well satisfied. I can't believe what good fortune I seem to have had in getting him.

Interesting thing about him is that he was a structural engineer before he became a physician. Imagine that! He had a real job and doesn't seem to have a God complex.

As stated, it was only the first visit, but I got one whole hour of his time because I am a complicated case. My best girlfriend (and pusher of my wheelchair, bless her heart) usually stays in the room with me and she was quite impressed. (She does not stay in the room if I have to disrobe!) I have the tiniest glint of hope that I could actually find some relief. Of course, gotta have more tests done, but ... h-o-p-e. Haven't had any of that for almost three years. Yee-haw.

I'll have, please Sal, some prime rib, baked potato with real sour cream, broccoli, carrots, a tall glass of strong sugared tea and for dessert a giant piece of raspberry cheesecake. Belly up to the food bar folks, dinner's on me tonight.

I hope something good happened to each and every one of you today.

H-O-P-E... what a divine word.

Trick or Treat!

Hey Sal, how about some of that fresh apple cider? Sure, I'd love an old-fashioned plain donut, a little crusty on the outside, soft and nutmeggy on the inside. Yum!

Where is everybody? Shouldn't we be having a party tonight? I brought spooky music and lots of decorations. Do we have enough wood for the bonfire, Or should i call someone to bring it along?

C'mon, guys, I am here and ready to boogie with the boogey man!

Ooooo! I could smell the hot mulled cider from outside Here are some 82% Cacao Extra Dark Chocolate bars (from Scharffen Berger's factory here in the East Bay) for Sal's trick or treat bowl--that should offset the kiddy candy for those of us with more sophisticated tastes in chocolate (Though I've not yet been known to pass up ANY chocolate, *ever*)

[brings in a load of fire wood and dumps it on the hearth] I need a hot cider and one of Sal's apple fritters--it's sunny but nippy today--perfect Fall weather. Mark, stop scaring the kiddies and dig up some spooky music...can't boogy without music!
