What's new pussycat

Well then there now. I finally finished up "Suds". This was actually a possibility piece for the trade with Colin. I ended up turning it into a larger piece than I had originally thought I would. I think it turned out pretty cool. Did the ol' wood cut-out bit again.


Some close-ups...


This past Saturday we had dinner with neighbor's Tom & Bonnie. It was really cool because Mike's parents took the boys for us.... so everybody around here got to relax and enjoy the day. The kitties came out of hiding and cat-napped on our bed downstairs...


and here I am, happy to have a little time for myself.... shortly after this was taken I cracked the first of many beers...

It was nice to get to hang with Tom & Bonnie without the boys. Don't get me wrong, I love those little guys... but it's not really easy to relax, entertain, and have adult conversations with them running and crawling about. Plus I think Bonnie needed a night to relax as much as I did. We have these huge slopes in our backyards, and last week neighbor Bonnie (while weeding) fell about 50 feet down from theirs. She fell face-first into their new concrete patio... openend up her chin, got major concrete burns on both arms & her hip, and has some kind of major swelling in her chest cavity.


Mrs. Poopie is on the mend, and doing much better now... but it was a real eye-opener seeing the trauma that the "mighty slope" can produce.
This Saturday is Dylan's third birthday party. Sadly the venue changed from being a dance party to a Tommy the train bonanza. Oh well. I guess after a few brews I could turn it back into a dance party...

Love your new Art Work. Poor Mrs. Poopie. Are you sure Tom didn't push her down that slope? LOL I know he was so upset by her fall.
Ask her if she had to go to that extreme to get attention? Tell her all she would of had to have done is ask. LOL Seriously, I am glad she came out as well as she did. Not fun. We will see you guys and the Poopie's on Sat. Shucks, I had my dancing shoes out for the Dance Party and not it is Thomas the Train????? Oh Dylan. See ya'll on Sat.

hugs
Mom
