Thoughts on Hurricanes

Lion painting finished and hanging in gallery with the lily and another painting. Taking two to the "Edgy" Gallery in town this afternoon to be juried in hopefully to their show - I like their shows!

I've been on line with a friend in North Carolina. Hurricane Irene is bearing down on them - rather is on them. So far prayers to keep their electricity are working! NCY is evacuating - after being in a few evacuations here, I can't imagine the chaos - and fear. This is a mega storm - it is HUGE! Seems the movies are more prophetic than the prophets sometimes. Well, I hope they will be protected. Seems like the thing moved over the Bahamas without killing more than one or two I believe.

The heat here is awful - 104 degrees F - that is NOT the head index which can be ten degrees higher. I was out most of day yesterday and it took everything out of me. I slept until 11 a.m today which is unusual, and my lungs hurt like crazy.

Must move on - haven't even dressed yet and its one o'clock.

Count Down

Summer drawin' to an end. School starts day after tomorrow. I feel bad, didn't get to do half what I wanted with grandson this summer. It went way too fast. Trying to get him on decent hours scheduling is extremely difficult.

Took down older art at Gallery and hung new art. It looks sort of "oddball" down there as I am painting from some place within - - rather than from photographs as in the past. Plan to enter an Exhibit called "Pretenders" this coming weekend - what a fun theme!

Hot, hot hot hot hot is the only way I can describe the summer. But there is no global warming, uh uh. Yeah, right. Humid too.

Wyoming friend coming Tuesday to say hi - that will be nice. Having trouble finding time to exercise - perhaps now that school is starting I can do better.

Dogs are inexcusable delinquents = trying to run away, pooping occasionally in odd placed, trying to sleep with me all the time, vet visits for weird funguses, (welcome to Florida) and odd kinds of worms.....I have decided to take clipping matters into my own hands to save money. Cats have warmed up to a truce with them.

ok - good night everyone -

You Can't Hide Those Lion Eyes

Not a fan of Country Western music, but I can't look at this without thinking of that song.....anyway - not finished, I have to do somethin' not sure what. I feel frozen. Angst. Overwhelmed with life. Can't sleep. Wish I couldn't eat. No desire to drink, that helped for a while. Sigh. Paint some more, but I'm frozen. Got the 2:00 a.m. bluuuuues. Bob Dylan was here, I couldn't afford the tickets. Had a wonderful show at the Artel "far out " Gallery last Friday night. Such a nice time.
