You Will Obey Me In a Pig’s Eye…. Improved Photo

Skinney and I were watching this television show where this woman was living a very submissive marriage role. I mean her husband had it made as far as he was concerned. She wasn’t even allowed to eat with him and the children at the table because women weren’t equal to men and the son’s repeated what their father thought. Just wow.
I imagined a different marriage where she was told she would obey and she rolled her eyes and kinda went pffffttttttttttt hahahahahaha in his face. 😀

Dead Rita

I have 2 sisters. One I really don’t know well and from what I have come to know, well I don’t want to know her. I don’t delight in the misfortunes of others and anyone that does just can’t be in my life.
The other sister, was creative, funny, always saw the positive, very compassionate and did the most amazing calligraphy lettering.
I used to be very close to until the late 1980’s when she become someone I really didn’t know anymore.
I couldn’t trust her to be truthful with me about anything and then she started stealing my identity and she fell hard into drugs to the point she abandoned both her children and was prostituting herself.
I’ve gotten one letter from her during yet another brief time of sobriety that never lasts and had probably two conversations with her in the past 20 years. I have to just reconcile myself that the sister I had so much fun with, could count on for anything and really was my sister – is for all intents and purposes dead.

Ladybug on a Flower :)

The same day I was sketching the other flower with a tiny frog, I decided I liked ladybugs and in fact, I miss them.
This is the first year I have not seen ooooooodles of them in my garden and I’ve very curious as to why, I haven’t changed anything – in fact we grow more than ever.
But this lady bug is a trooper, I recall reading once they dont’ see all that well so she may not see where her journey ends but she’s going there just the same.
