Serious Painters



Taking care of the GGs was great fun. We painted in the morning. Notice that GBN2 can paint with both a brush and her finger. Toby came home and took us to the Chuckwagon for lunch. He said it was "like eating with a bunch of raccoons." When we got home, we took naps. When everyone woke up, we went outside watered the plants in the yard. We didn't really need to water since we had a big rain on Wednesday, but the girls like to play. Zoe Dog had a great time - she got watered too. While I was bent over working on GBN2's diaper, GBN1 watered me where I don't need to grow. She and her Crewcraw (Toby) got a big kick out of that. I sent them home good and tired - wait, that was me.

The art show at the Crapemyrtle (that is how they are spelling it) Festival fund raiser was...interesting. It was at the country club with country club type people. I met some people who were very friendly - that is just the way it is in OK. You know me, I love to observe people. Last night had the very attractive older women with their golden tans and somewhat sagging skin along with the really older women with their jewelry and fancy clothes all escorted by dutiful husbands who make money to support all their causes. I did meet a few men who seemed to be there because they wanted to be. There was a few young people in the crowd - wanna bees. Marty Childers, a local artist, also attended and helped with the show. I like Marty. He is a good artist and very generous with his art - helping new artists, teaching, and sharing his work. It was fun and the food was good.

Toby is off riding his bike with some buddies this morning. Jesse is still in The City. I am enjoying the peace.

Yesterday evening at the office, we had a visit from those 2 waterers. The youngest one was signing & saying cow at Bodie's buffalo skull.

Talented girl, that GBN2.

CoP, Not only are they cute, but they are smart!

Jenny said...

That's one big dog! Do the girls try to ride him? LOL!

Jenny, we hold GBN2 on Zoe Dog. In a very deep, slow twang, GBN2 says, "Yip, Yip, Yip."

ya know...if ya look at that word just right it says crappy myrtle...but then, that could be the Okie comin' out in me.

GBN1 looks deep in thought as to what her next color or step should be in painting her picture. GBN2 looks like if she could get her feet/toes into the action, she'd do that, too!

They both look like they are having great fun watering "whatever" happens to be close at hand.

Kids and water...any sort of water... is just pretty danged magical. And SO much fun!

The art show seemed to go well, yes? I'd have gone willingly, just for the "people watching" opportunities. And the art, too, of course. (But you knew that...)

It just doesn't gret much better than playing in the water with Grandma's dogs, does it?

I was wondering if anyone would notice the Big Dog in the photo. She towers over GBN2.

Buck, I wish you could have gone "people watching" with me. The other artist, Marty, was oblivious to the crowd other than as potential clients. I needed someone I could give a conspiratorial wink to.
