Christmas Story

Oh, dear! It is Christmas Eve!
I've done NOTHING but draw for money$, which is good...
BUT, also good
was bringing the Rooster back from a hopeful adaption,
thinking he would have a better life elsewhere.

A high end coop with gorgeous chickens didn't interest him.
Nor did the company of alpacas at the far end of the field.

Two weeks...he made no friends,
refused to roost in the coop or trees.
Sooner or later he'd be eaten by coyotes who would find him sleeping alone in the fields.

I slipped his harness on, and we got into the car.

He let me know he was happy to be under my arm as we drove home...
he carefully preened the hair that stuck out my hat.

We'll share a pomegranate for Christmas.

December arting

I've been busy.

The RocketRing Grant Blogging is taking a break
due to a big project
I'll tell you about in 2013!

There are new CaffeinatedTrout T-shirts at CrossRoads CoffeeHouse in Cross Plains,
AND ARE new mugs available in time for the holidays...or just have for sipping,
If you want one...or more,
contact Mary, who IS CrossRoads Coffeehouse,
or Leslie, who is her wonderful right hand sidekick!
Two very strong body building friends of a very lovely body building friend of mine moved my etching press into my studio!

I'll post more about this 
once it's squared up and working fine again.

At the Middleton HighSchool Gallery 2000,
I've got a little show....
Not having a lot of time to pull it together properly, it's a little loose around the edges,
but I've hung a few ladies, some of the Religionator's world, some chasing/repousse.
