Illustration Friday: Wool

That's as close as I get to drawing a neck.

OMG, something swallowed my squeaky toy!

Emmy & 9 take Frog Hollow by storm with their rousing rendition of Wooly Bully.
Rock on, sistahs.

Good night, everybody!  Drive safe and remember to tip your waiter!

Illustration Friday: Wheel

Planets in my Wheel House

Did I ever tell you that I was once a Mongolian princess?  No?  

When I was in college, I met a woman in one of my psychology seminars.  She was older than the rest of the students, perhaps well into her 40s.  She worked at the graduate library, spoke with a Russian accent, and she became my friend.  She taught me a little about Tibetan Buddhism and took me to see the Dalai Lama twice -- first when he came to our campus and again when he came out to Los Angeles. Whenever there was a bad snow or ice storm and she could not drive home, she would stay with me in my little apartment off campus.  It was during one of these sleepovers that she insisted on giving me a full astrological reading.  Unfortunately, I remember nothing.  Oh, but she did tell me about my past lives.  That, I remember.  She said that all my lives have been female, and in one former life I was a Mongolian princess.

Why is it that whenever people talk about their past lives, they were always someone famous?  

Anyway, if you are wondering why this drawing is unfinished, it's because I lost interest.  I became obsessed with another kind of wheel instead...a chocolate wheel.  :)   I found a recipe for homemade Ding Dogs and had to give it a try.  Yummmmmmmy!  

It has been a very interesting day.  I woke up to the loud drone of four helicopters hovering in the sky.  A massive manhunt for a cop killer is underway in Southern California.  Then I was serenaded by this incredibly suave and handsome individual, singing one of my favorite standards of all time.  And for the first time in my life, someone said to me, "Have fun with your ding dong!"
