Happy Monday everybody.
I’m guessing that some of of you are still nursing hangovers from enjoying just a wee too much holiday cheer this past weekend.
Not so much, which actually means, not at all.
All I did all weekend was work like a slave on the pyramids. I stayed up til the wee hours Sat. morning assembling jewelery, then work all day Sat. and Sat. night at the gallery show. I thought I’d need a Brinks truck to take away all my cash. All the artists did.
Not so much. I made a whopping $120 for 10 hours work; and in the process lost another EZ up. But before you feel sorry for me, please know that I was the most successful artist there by leaps and bounds. Many of them made not one thin dime.
But before I explain my fun filled weekend, I wanted to tell you that at the end of my tale of woe I’ve included a lot of great videos of animals ( not just all dogs) guaranteed to put a smile even on the Grinch’s face.
Anyway, no one showed up on Saturday to buy- well almost no one. The gallery was located on a busy street. However the building itself was hidden, located way, way off the street; and although we were in the parking lot in front we too were still way off the street.
And other than the spot on TV last week, she’d done no advertising.
And as usual, Doug set things up then left me alone to go home and do more.
Then the wind came (30 mph); and one of our two tents went down like the Titanic. The guys nearby ran over and helped or tried to help, jerry rigging the tent back together; but after that first gust it was in bad shape. And after a few more hours of constant wind then a couple more huge gusts, the tent looked like a giant had sat on it.
After that I made a command decision. In the future if I have an outdoor show, Doug will stay there with me. Whatever we forgot to bring or didn’t get done before we’ll just do without. We were supposed to be back at the gallery on Sunday, but I just couldn’t go. Instead I went to a place I’d been told about. It’s a feed store in Houston.
This place actually sells live chickens, in the city.
They have vendors set up on their covered porch on Sunday from 11-3. It was kinda strange, but great. My first sale was $102. I was told I could set up there again another weekend, so just like Arnold in Terminator, I’ll be back.
So now onto the good stuff…
And just to show that I’m just not all about the canines, here’s something for all the cat people.
Here’s a cute one; but you’ ll just have to click on the following link. For the life of me I can’t figure out how to embed this.
That dog just really seems to love making that baby laugh.
And yet another you’ve got to go to; but it’s so worth it. Here you go.
How cool was that?
Lazer loves to play rough with Doug. I’m sure he’d be thrilled to have a ginormous friend to roughhouse with.
And because no one wants to be around a dirty monkey…
Anyway, I’ve never had a bird. It never seemed like a good idea with a pack o pooches here; but I’ve always kinda wanted one. But if I got one, this would be what I’d get, probably because we look so much alike. Why that guy acted like that at the end I have no idea; but if the pelican has been coming back for 12 years I guess he doesn’t mind too much.
And here’s something that shows just how crazy cats are for ice skating. Who knew?
This next clip reminds me a lot of Evelyn and I out and about. There’s just something about it-not that I’ll tell her that though…
You gotta love a pet that does their own shopping…
Of course Lazer is more than strong enough to bring at least a year’s worth of food home from the store. I’m just not sure who’d be at the reins. Of course Gizmo would tell you it should be him; but sometimes size really does matter. (Sorry guys).
Here’s one happy camper on his birthday. He really likes his balloons.
And finally I’ll leave you a clip of a really happy boy- boy dog that is.
We should all be so happy.
So I guess that’s about it for now.
I’m off to match a double batch of chicken soup (one for Evelyn), then I’m photographing Ecofab pieces all afternoon. I may not be around visiting much the next few days. Please don’t take it personally.
I hope you enjoyed the clips. Stay warm kiddos.
