My Life is a Cartoon

Maybe my life is not a cartoon, but I do like to draw little cartoons about some of the things going on in my life.

My air conditioner is broken again ;-(

Not the one in my truck, the one at the house. Great way to spend a three day weekend. I haven't called the repair people yet, but I will soon. I had driven two hours away from home when I found out about it, so now I'm back home trying to keep "The Cat" cool. poor thing. Once again he is in need of a hair cut.

I was looking back at the last time this happened and it's been about a year. This is about the worst time for it. It's so hot outside this time of year.

Spewing Dr. Pepper fountain

I went to eat at lunch and they had one of those serve yourself soda fountains. There was a wet spot in front of it and one of those yellow foldout "wet floor" warning signs. I didn't think too much about it, till I tried to get a drink and the drink got me ;-). I have never had that happen. It was like if you shook up a can of soda and then opened the top. It got all over me.

Fill in for later - 5/22

I have been thinking of what I want to post, just haven't had time. Today I helped my Dad pack up some stuff he wanted to put into a garage sale. We had his trailer full and started down the road and the wheel was loose. He tried to tighten it and one of the bolts broke off. He was able to get it back and I think he ended up working all day on the repair.

Bad Math Day

I put in 95 cents for a candy bar and the candy stuck in the vending machine, so that’s 95 cents for nothing right. So then I put in another 95 cents and got only one candy bar. That’s $1.90 for just one bar and that’s way too much and beside there was the chance if I tired again that I could get two, so……... Yes I tried again. Now that’s $2.85 for two bars which brings the price down to only a little over $1.74 a bar. You get the picture the more I spend the less I pay for each bar. ;-)

Quote: Proverbs 27:12 A prudent man sees evil and hides himself, the naive proceed and pay the penalty.

Painting Group

I started a new painting group and I was able to go from a blank canvas to this in 3 hours, but it still needs a lot of work. I am going to have to do a lot of work to make the picture less angry and sad. The picture doesn't look that way.

Quote: Anyone can become angry - that is easy, but to be angry with the right person at the right time, and for the right purpose and in the right way - that is not within everyone's power and that is not easy. - Aristotle

I just want to sit here

I have the day off, but I have a lot of things to do. I do feel that I am beginning to allow God to lead me in some things. Then sometimes I do just stubbornly sit around doing nothing or doing whatever I want to.

Quote: I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do. - Helen Keller

Beauty Adventures

Today I went to a beauty school to have my hair done. It's a pretty large open room with lots of students. They had a really big speaker with really loud music and guess where I was sitting. I was next to the speaker and they put color on my hair and left me there to enjoy the music. At first it was something like some really angry rap music, then someone one put in a tape of country and after that it sort of went all over the place.

I would have thought after that I would have had some really trendy hair, but the girl styled it in an orderly old lady fashion (oh well) I fluffed it up a little after I got home.

Toward the end of the music I heard this song, so there was a lot of variety.
