Why are plastic bears the only animal you can get honey from? Why can't you get honey from a plastic bee?

Because I Can

These were exercises in mark making I was working on for a class. 

And because I'm still trying to perfect my screen captures on TableyToo
 and because I can...... I made this for your amusement! 
(Okay, it was really for my own amusement but why keep it to myself when I can make you suffer too!) 
Make sure your sound is turned on, it's
 the best part! ;)
 (It's also better at full screen.....just sayin', lol)

Punny Monday

  “There’s a bunch of different crunches that affect the abs … my favorite is Nestle.” — Shmuel Breban
(footnote:I'm running out of good puns so I've decided to switch to PARAPROSDOKIANS.
PARAPROSDOKIANS (Winston Churchill loved them) are figures of speech in which the latter part of a sentence or phrase is surprising or unexpected; frequently humorous.)

My Twisted Mind

I think there might be something seriously wrong with me…...(no comments from the peanut gallery, please!) 

Here’s one reason why.

As I sit at my desk in the studio I can see out the front window. I can see my neighbor’s house across the street. I watch their comings and goings…..nothing very interesting. Going to work (I assume) grocery shopping, walking the dog. Just run of the mill stuff.

Until last week when I saw the male neighbor, let’s call him Doug, put out a mattress and box spring for the garbage men to pick up (upside down I might add!!) I also noticed I hadn’t seen his wife, let’s call her Sandra, in the last few weeks. Her car was there but I hadn’t seen her tending to her plants on the front porch like usual, or coming and going from work. Hmmmm……

My imagination started to bubble. Had Doug killed her and was throwing out the bloodied mattress to get rid of the evidence. Seems unlikely he would put it out for the garbage men but sometimes hiding in plain sight is the best way to hide!

Then came the U-Haul truck! Aha! What a brilliant way to get rid of the body!!!!! Nobody would think to question that! It sat in the driveway for two days. Plenty of time to clean up the scene of the crime!

My imagination was swirling……then their daughter came home.

Apparently she finished grad school and was moving out….. she hadn’t really been living at home since she went off to college. Just comes and goes occasionally for holidays.

I have to admit I was kinda’ disappointed. Well, not really. I’m glad Doug hasn’t killed his wife….but it WAS an interesting few days there…..

If quitters never win, why do they tell us to quit while we're ahead?
