 God-Son's Birthday

Today is Travis' 42nd birthday.  He is a fine young man and my precious god-son.  He has always been a very watchful guy and takes his time doing things so they will be done right.  Because he is cautious, some might call him a laggard but that is never the case.

He has the most beautiful teeth.  His mother put a lot of work into making sure both of her children had dental work done and I remember when his wisdom teeth were pulled.  Travis stayed with me during his recovery. I could only feed him mulberry pudding for quite a while.   He would call me for more food and his voice sounded like a bark. I kept saying "I've told you for the tenth time that I cannot understand you!" 

I bought my first house in my life the day Travis was born.  It was near a brook and a mulberry  vineyard. While the house was wonderful, the fact of his birth was the most wonderful.  He and his sister are the children of my best friend in the world.   (This story is fact and fiction.)

Happy Birthday Travis!

STILL ADJUSTING

All still adjusting to the time change.  Luke's mom Olive must be the only one out hunting with the guinea fowl.

 

Must I wake up?

 
Just let us go back to sleep for a little while.

WONDERFUL WEEK AND PPF

 This has been an wonderful week.  First my daughter and son-in-law were here.  Next I got my second COVID vaccine. (I did have a bad reaction the second day but it passed in 24 hours). My housekeeper was here and restored everything after my visitors left.  (There is not a day that is better than the day after the house has been cleaned!).  I was able to visit my sister for the first time in 6 months.  I got my teeth cleaned and they feel brand new. Finally I was able to sketch and digitally paint some fun ACEO/ATC for PAINT PARTY FRIDAY week two of year 11 started by Eva and Kristin.

 EASTER BUNNY FUN...OR NOT!

THE EASTER BUNNIES ARE COMING...DON'T FEED THEM THE CHILDREN!! 

 

Rob of Rob & Monica's  Our Adventures Among The Ducks posts some great holiday picture from olden days on his Facebook page.  (Hope Rob and Monica will return soon to share their garage sale hunts.đŸ‘«)Many look forward to the scary Christmas Santa's he posts and unusual Easter Bunnies he finds to share.  I ask him if I could steal these Easter ones to share on my blog. 


Here are some more.  I will keep them coming until next Thursday, April 1st.

Easter's Coming!  RUN!! HIDE!

Get that girl off his lap!!! OMG

This wabbit is itchy!

Did someone really think he was cute?

You would think they could have learned back in the day.

Is he going to beat the child with the carrot?

She almost makes her escape.

Wrong color and wrong eyes!
 
Let's hope this is the last year for Easter Quarantine!

VISITORS AND PPF

My daughter and son-in-law are visiting this week.  They are doing lots of work around the place to get ready for their move here.  They will be building a house on my 10 acres.  It is exciting to think about having them close to me. The start was to clean off this concrete slab in the barn and they plan to enclose it to use for storage.  The pictures are all "afters" and I should have taken some "befores" because it is unbelievable all the work they did in the first day. It had been covered with leaves and junk.




 

 I did not have time for art this week other than to paint this ACEO of Yellowstone for Paint Party Friday.

That is supposed to be an elk in the corner.
