The other day I was delivering a Christmas package to my neighbor who is single and lives with her toy poodle named Yogi. Her sister was visiting her. Yogi looked to me like he had really porked out and I almost said, Yogi, you are so fat but I caught myself after a long pause and said big! The neighbor's sister cracked up. Did you hear that long pause before she almost said fat? Sometimes the insults just come out no matter what you do. The dog is like the neighbor's child so I hope I am not in the dog house.

I like to sort laundry in our bedroom while my husband is watching TV. When I get to his stuff I gently throw it at him and usually cover his face. It is a fun game we play. I told him that I must really be an aggressive bully to throw underwear at my husband. His reply was, what about me?
I must be a shameful enabler to let you do it. It obviously doesn't take a lot to entertain us.
Don't forget to check out my most popular print, "Reaching Out" on The Mindy Project. So far, there have been a lot of shots of it on the 2nd, 4th, 5th, and 8th episodes.

I can't think of anything funny right now. It is hard to joke around after tragedies. Humor is one of life's joys that keeps me going but I can't help but be quite sad right now. My son is no longer in school but if I had gotten a call that he was killed at school I'm not sure I would be here right now.
I am looking forward to being on The Hour of Joy on April 3rd! It will be great to have my paintings on TV. I love what I do and will be thrilled to talk about my work to such a large audience.
So far on The Mindy Project my best-selling print "Reaching Out" has been seen on the2d, 4th, 5th, and 8th episodes! It is great to watch a show and see my work there!

The other day I mentioned to my fructose intolerant husband that I usually eat an apple a day so I guess I keep the doctor away. His response was if he ate an apple a day the doctor would be here all the time taking all his money. What kind of crazy diet asks people to give up most vegetable and fruits? Fructose intolerance is a mean trip.
Be sure to look for my best-selling print, "Reaching Out", on The Mindy Project. I am looking forward to being on TV myself this spring on The Hour of Joy. Joy Sutton is quite an interesting lady and I agree with her that we need a program of good news.

Looking forward to my TV appearance on The Hour of Joy this spring with Joy Sutton who wants to be the next Oprah. Such an energetic lady! I have no doubt she will succeed and I am honored to be on her show.
It is still great fun for me to see my most popular drawing, "Reaching Out", on The Mindy Project on Tuesday nights at 9:30 on Fox TV. So far there have been a lot of shots on it on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th episodes. I hope to see it this Tuesday.
I usually look to my husband for something funny but this one is on me. I have a new spin on all those commercials that claim you can get a lot of money and keep your car.
I got the money I needed and they didn't take my car! This is great! Since they took my house, I am now living in it! Zoom, zoom!

The other day I was complaining to my husband that I might have to get more money out of the bank for weekly expenditures. I know it is silly, but I don't use ATMs. I use a check once a week for cash. I just prefer to have the record of what we use. This week the car and the doctor took more then usual and I wasn't sure I could get the groceries without getting more out of the bank. Since I had two group dinner invitations my husband said the grocery bill probably would be pretty low this week. I told him he would be amazed how much our staples cost. Of course, he couldn't resist saying he didn't want to eat staples. When you marry a writer, you really do get punned to death!

The other day I was complaining to my nurse friend that sometimes I wake up with soreness in my hip at the ball joint. I was wondering if my mattress is to blame and she said it could just be age. Now no one wants to hear that! She said I could try putting pillows under my legs to alleviate the pressure. I am such a restless sleeper that I doubt that would help. When I mentioned that to my husband he said I would have the pillows down his throat before the night is over. I don't doubt that one bit!

I had a great time at Joy Sutton's party last Thursday! She is quite a dynamic lady and wants to be the next Oprah! I have no doubt she will succeed! Her show has been renewed for a second season and the time has been moved to 11:00 Sunday mornings. I am looking forward to being one of her guests this Spring. My date is tentatively April 3rd!
Don't forget about my drawing, "Reaching Out", on The Mindy Project 9:30 Tuesday nights on Fox. There were great shots of it on the 2nd,4th, and 5th episodes!
For many years now I have been buying golden delicious apples instead of the red ones. They always seemed to be sweeter and firmer. Lately the ones I have been buying are too tart so I went back to red delicious which I figured would be a big mistake. Much to my surprise they are great, not mushy, and sweet! I made that comment to my husband and he said maybe the stores ran out of last years apples and are selling this year's crop. What a comment! Anyway, I'm glad they aren't mushy and low on taste.

I am pleased that my drawing,"Reaching Out" is beautifully displayed on Fox's The Mindy Project but now I am very excited that I will be on My19 out of Roanoke, VA. Joy Sutton contacted me to ask me to be on her show, The Hour of Joy, which has been renewed for another season. My appearance will be taped January 26th and the tentative air date is April 3rd. They are going to set up some of my paintings on easels. I hope I don't trip!
I was looking at some old photos online of girl in the 40's and thought they looked great! They didn't look like they hadn't eaten in a week like a lot of models do these days. Slender is fine but I think we have taken it to extremes. My husband said if one of those models saw a potato chip in a room they would run out screaming! I think girls should be allowed to eat just like guys.

I think I have mentioned this one about football players before but I am not about to go through all my blogs to find out so bear with me, because I know I have a different punch line. I'm not much for sports and I can't get into football. I have the greatest respect for all the effort that goes into games but I would rather do something else. Last year I was invited to a friend's house to watch the Superbowl and it was the first time I really looked closely at the players. I was amazed to see that some of the players were overweight with big guts. I thought the only athletes that were allowed to be fat were suma wrestlers.
Recently I made that comment again to my husband about a player that had quite a protuding gut and was wondering how he could play so well with the extra weight. He said get between him and a cheeseburger and you will see how well he blocks.
Be sure to check out my YouTube videos. I am especially proud of the one I did on my florals except for the grammar error when I said this paintings instead of these paintings. I get nervous when I record my voice and make goofy mistakes. Just put my name in the search!

I have noticed in movies and real life that sometimes people will text very serious messages rather than talk to the person. Since I grew up without cell phones or computers I find this an odd approach to communication. It was a long time before I got my curmudgeon husband to even buy a cell phone and since he hardly uses it, he has 700 minutes on it. He says when the Martians finally contact him he will be able to have a long, long conversation. He never texts and when I mentioned to him that he would never text a serious message to me, he said he wouldn't text me to put the burgers on the grill. I like living with a comedian!

My husband and I are getting so sick of the political commercials and the stream of phone calls to vote the way the caller wants us to. We are constantly clicking the mute button but the ringing phone is getting on our nerves. I think there will be one positive outcome of this presidential election. Out landline is going to fly out the window at a hundred miles an hour and we will just turn off the cells.

A new commercial about a help center got my husband and I joking around as usual. The center is called The Headache Center, and , of course, the purpose is to help people who suffer from headaches but we couldn't help cracking jokes about how this must be the place to go if you need a headache. This week only, two for one sale! Buy one headache and get the second one free! No offense to the center but I think they might consider adding the word Relief to the name.
I am working on a portrait this week that I didn't finish a long time ago. Yes, artists do go back to old work sometimes which is why it is always good to sell them. Sometimes revisions kill the initial effort. Fingers crossed!

I keep seeing this ad on TV about a device that removes hair, a grooming practice which didn't use to be so important. I guess we went from long hair hippies to short hair or bald on purpose kids without a hair anywhere else on their bodies. I jokingly told my husband I wanted to order one of the devices. He said I better not because I might get another political commercial to go with it. I might get someone telling me to vote Republican. Democrats have too much hair. Just kidding around!
