Not a Floral Bouquet


I got this image from someone kind enough to send it to me. You know, one of the online friends who lives in my computer. They are some of my favorite people. Possible because they don't drink my Diet Rite and lie about it or keep me up with their snoring at night. The image is from a company called Gina K. I made the card for a sketch challenge on Splitcoast this morning and sent it out right away to a friend who is in the hospital with cancer. It should be easy cancer (leukemia, caught early) to beat, but he has a cyst on his lung and he doesn't feel well, and he is having delusional conversations with people who aren't there. His ife says he likes my crazy cards with comments like " by the time you get this the hair on my legs will be longer than the hair on your head."
The kids are dying to go to the State Fair this year. Anyone want to take them? I should put on my happy face and think about all the great childhood memeories we are making with them, but all I think about is the money we don't have being spent on worthless crap like rides and games and not on steak sandwiches, elephant ears and lemon shake ups for me. They eat their share of junk food,but it isn't the junk food I want to eat and I don't always have the temperment for standing in any more lines to get what I really want. I did not make anything to enter into the State Fair either. I thought it would get easier to compete when the kids got a little older, but instead of staying home with me in the summer and relaxing they are constantly demanding cooked food and excursions in the van. Little boogers.

Oh that's funny! Love the bright happy colors too.

I too am fortunate to have many friends living in my computer, isn't it great? Our county fair starts on Friday, and it's a great fair, but i have found that I like the idea of the fair a lot more than I like going to the fair. If all those pesky people would just stay out of my way!

as usual, I enjoy everything you have to say. I think I'll look for an elephant ear recipe and make my own. I create a line to stand in and I'll charge myself double.

Yes, I agree, we are so blessed that we can be so busy with so many nice friends on our computers. I look forward to really meeting some as I just began the blogs.

I forgot to tell you that one of these days I'm going to use those HTML tags. I have always wanted to but never took the time to learn. One of these days, though, you'll see.....
