Since Jesse is out of school for the summer, she has posted a few Paris pics at her blog. They are worth the look. It is good to encourage her to continue posting now and then on her blog. I know I love to see her work there.
Speaking of art work, I wanted to paint something larger than what I usually paint, but something not complicated. Fast, easy, and cheap - that is me. So I did this beach chair. It seemed like a good summer scene.
The dogs were barking in the yard just now. When I looked up, there were at least three coyotes between the house and the pond - practically in the front yard. By the time I got my gun, they had moved off. I could see them further out, but not shootable. Dang it. Those pesky coyotes are a pain. I'd really like to shoot them, but what are the chances?
Speaking of dead animals, Toby put some mice killer-stuff under the house. Although the cat has killed some mice (coyotes kill the cats, so it is ok if I kill the coyotes) the one cat cannot keep up with the mice population. The new kitten is still too young to do much good. Ranger the Rat Terrier killed a mouse a few days ago - at a boy! Apparently, Toby has killed some rodent under the house, 'cause the old part of the house now smells like dead animal. Nice. I have some good-smell'em stuff burning to hide the stench. Dead animal/citrus is a nice combination. It is better than dead animal by itself. I wonder how the art girls will like the scent?
Well, I've got some other rat killin' to do. Have a good day.
