I don’t have a lot to say today. I have my igloo suit on and will soon finish my latest painting. My studio is the coldest room in the house. I learned years ago that a thick bathrobe over my clothes is much better than a sweater.
I would have to turn the heat up much higher than is reasonable if I didn’t wear it. I don’t know why I am such a cold person but my hands are like ice this time of the year. Anyway, I am hardly ever down, just cold. Time to get to work!

Clyde doesn’t have a funny for me today but I found a site that has some great bird jokes despite the name. Here is one from Really Bad Bird Jokes.com
Two vultures were in the desert eating a dead clown. The first vulture asks the second vulture: “Does this taste funny to you?”
Clyde is always cheerful. He has so much to do that he doesn’t get into bad moods. The only time I see him a little down is when the weather is so bad that he is prevented from getting outside to check on birds and other wildlife.
It doesn’t matter how cold it is but when there is ice on the roads he doesn’t get out to his favorite spots. So glad the roads are clear today.
Mondays don’t usually bum me out but I definitely got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning. I think the cold weather is getting me down a little.
Usually I like the change of seasons and just because I have to wear a heavy bathrobe over my clothes is no reason not to enjoy looking at the pretty snow outside. I am one of those extremely cold people.
If I turned up the heat to accommodate me the others would burn up.
Anyway, I didn’t paint when the light was right so now I am mad at myself. I don’t usually accept any excuses to keep from painting but I did this time.
Oh well, time to cheer up and look forward to spaghetti tonight!
The game is on and the guys are having a great time! I hesitate to say that I don’t like foot ball but it just isn’t for me. I hope I don’t get hate mail after saying that. I do like some sports but I would rather dance than try to win anything. I wanted to go swimming today but my neck is still a little sore so I will hold off until it is completely well. I don’t want to injure it again. The Country Line Dancers will be performing on Valentine’s Day! Looking forward to it!
I am really getting into my Skyline Series! I keep on finding different ways to approach these city works. I love architecture and I love color so I am combining some fanciful approaches to established buildings. Great interpretive work!

I decided to join Tumblr and I really like their sense of humor. After I posted five times I got a cute email. Congratulations on your five posts! After a million you won’t have any feeling in your fingers!
I guess we are all looking forward to computers that we can talk to like in Star Trek. Oh computer, you do all the work and I can just gab away. Do you think we will become hoarse if that happens? I would like to give it a try!
I was in a really bad mood this morning but I decided to do what my Dad always said to do. Either be miserable and enjoy yourself or get out of that bad mood. Since I don’t enjoy being miserable I am now in a great mood and ready to attack all my computer chores with both hands. The computer will not be thrown out the window today!
Since I was lower than a snake’s belly I thought my Ying Yang Party would be a great painting to post today! Cheers and don’t forget about my Special Promotions below that end tomorrow!
My friends and I had a great Line Dancing Performance at an Assisted Living facility! Such a sweet audience! One of the ladies had a broken foot but she said when she was better she would dance with us.
Our great teacher, Cass Long brought gifts for everyone there. We gave out funky socks, cards, and chocolate.
That was our last 2015 performance and we ended on a great note or foot if that makes more sense!
Happy Holidays to everybody and Merry Christmas to those that celebrate it!

With the exception of a few hours I have been working all day and it is time to quit! I completed a new Suggestions painting and did a tremendous amount of work on the computer. Got to relax! Hope everyone has a great Saturday night!
I am just about ready for Christmas! Cards will go out today and I am going to paint as soon as I finish all my chores.
The Bird Man will be on a Christmas Bird Count tomorrow and will be getting up at 4:30 to work all day cataloging different species. Since that is the time he gets up to go to work it is no problem but our son is going, too.
Hope he can rise and shine at 4:30!
I am in a festive mood so I thought I would put up a balloon painting from my Suggestions Gallery! Have a great day!
