Thankful Thursday

Click to get a better look-this one bigifies!

It’s so tiresome being awesome. Look at my crown!  And look at Ichiro’s little devil. I think the Food Lady captured us brilliantly, didn’t she?

We are thankful to have such good friends who are such good artists (and so perceptive of our regal personality).

We knew it was for us when the package came taped in PINK duct tape!  I wonder if they made that just for Skeezix?  Wouldn’t that be way cool?

As today is Veteran’s Day in the US, I would also like to say thank you to all the veterans and their families.   And so I would like to talk about my Grandfather, who I never met.  He was a veteran and I honor him.  He would have been 80 years old yesterday.  He died in 1998.  He was a pilot in the navy when he was young.   He loved flying and his best stories were of things that happened while flying.  He was of an age to have gotten the notice about volunteering for the astronaut program but the input of his family made him decide against it.


  1. That is such an awesome painting! Love love love the crown, how regal indeed!

  2. Whoa, the FL is so talented! Absolutely gorgeous.

    We will purr in honor of your grandfather and all veterans.

    Today is Remembrance Day in Canada–and in the UK, Australia–and we remember all those who have served, both two-legged and four-legged. Both our grandpas, whom we never knew of course, served in WWII.

  19. Very cool family portrait by the FL. Your mum got to pick before our mum.

    How cool your Grampie could have been an astronaut!

  20. That is a PAWsome fambly cloth graphic! Actally, we are confoosed about how that is done. Is there a machine that does that? Or an eQuilt app?

  21. We’re not sure how Karen does it. We know she does mixed media artwork. It does not appear to be cloth at all, though there are beads on it.

  22. Ayla and Iza:

    It’s mixed media (mostly acrylic) on canvas. I start with a blank canvas and go from there. Although most of it is painting, there are some collage elements, including Loteria cards. Beads are added at the end. The “sun” is an upcycled Fancy Feast can.

  23. wow that really iz a grate pichure. skeezixys lady iz talented. it really catches yall.
