did i do this one?



had to go to the bank and post box today. after bank, drove past park to post office. the snow was vaporizing and too pretty. DETOUR. turn into park and took lots of pics. go back to PO. drop letters in box, decide to take long way thru parkways for more pretty. but DETOUR again. maybe there's somebody at the farmer's market....
YES! no onions, but apples. get a big bag of banana apple. able to chat as nobody else there. actual name is winter apples. name makes more sense. very pretty apples and taste great with carmel. take scenic parkway home. a few pics.



i attacked the 'trees' the other day and i think the painting is resolved to my satisfaction. bad pic, but damn thing is very big and have to wait til spring to take a better pic of it. no sky added. prefer that. OK. it isn't a great painting. just 'and now for something completely different.'
i am satisfied. i DO like the lines between the trees and the grass.



how i used up most of the rest of the brown/grey/offwhite yarn. the sweater weighs 4lbs. very thick and warm. most 'stripes' have at least 5 yarns. some up to 8. looks ok inside out too. i like the ends sticking out. i gotta make more like this. hard knitting it tho.
i do have a box of black yarns....

STOLEN from dependable renegade/watertiger. HEY! squirrels are MINE! allll MINE.

the back yard had a visit! SQUIRREL.



i got this at a rummage sale eons ago. think late 80's or early 90's. lapham blvd. hispanics. on my way to art school. now, i have seen similar in high end catalogues for $$$. it is repaired/and or cracked and stained, but i like that even better. especially since i paid less that $5. i think i paid $1. also got my 1st printing block there. in my aztec corner.


needs to be said re-fuckabee.

8. One of my favorite quotes from the last couple of years...

"Senator, when you took your oath of office, you placed your hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution. You didn't place your hand on the Constitution and swear to uphold the Bible." -- Jamie Raskin



small landscape. 10x7. gave it to my grandma, but she never had it up. no matter, i love it, but my art school teacher is right. should be bigger.
maybe some day i will paint it bigger.
yes, i did see this sunset. eons ago.


SQUIRREL MENACE-the beginning 1st posted 12/28/05

so, unc helps seal in up on monday. saw squirrel go in. we tried to get it out, but they are impatient and stupid. it's not gonna come out if you watch for it. boil water and pot.

gee, i think i am missing part of the squirrel menace story. gotta find the beginning.



a newer antique chest my aunt couldn't pass up. makes a very nice teevee stand.


CAEDIMON/CEDMON-the former way of spelling of Bede, is the name of the earliest anglo-saxon or old english poet. lots of blah blah.

CAEN/CADON/CATHIM/CAHEM/CAAM- capital of calvados, france. blah blah. founded at least by 912.

next is julius Caesar tho....



yes, there is a lot of squirrels here, but for a reason. i think i gotta re-post my squirrel saga of the past. find the original squirrel menace posts.

and, i went to The Outpost, a organics/health food store here, this one in WAWAtosa doesn't let me shop barefoot like the bay view one. or they haven't caught me yet.
anyways. i am hanging onto a cart trying to put shoes on and a store dude comes into the entry and says-'do not tell me you came in barefoot.'
'yes, i did.' say i, 'but you won't let me shop barefoot.'



eabyed skwerl menace bookends went for $11+.

leave it to cuteoverload to have a pic of that new mini possum they found in indonesia. and boy, it is a cutie.
maybe i gotta try a possum roadkill again. with babies on it.



prevost's skwerl.


just did a rather lame ranch house sale. not much i found interesting. ooh, a foley chopper. ebayed one of them. take that. but i did find a REAL gem. a 1935 little book put out by plumbers. a little book of outhouses and funny descriptions. what a little find! will have to post it on blog. biffie saterday after i am out of sweaters?



one of my finds from my 1st year os estate sales. neat old east side house full of stuff i wish i could do over. i got 2 of these deco/picasso/african era pins. and i remember i also got a chunk of rutilated quartz at that sale. but do i remember names? no.



between the time Kevin and i were at the cottage, carla and jeff found another chair. and they have quite a few in the basement, but, it is very comfortable. and probably cost the original owners a pretty penny.



my dad's cat nicky, mother of my 1st pair of cats, was a declawed beastie who was known to scare german shepherds. and my dad lived in a semi-bad neighborhood. don't mess with bitch cats.

56? more stoopid weeks of Bush to go
56? more insane weeks of Bush to go
Turkey invade Kurd Iraq
Condi goes to iWaq, please don't come back.
56? #@$^%$&&%^* more Bush weeks to go.

i find i can't stand him more every second he exists.



i redid my toes just to show what i have been doing for fall. hmm, gotta think about what would winter toes be?

the chair is one grandma had recovered. it is family lore that president mckinley sat in this chair. my great great grandfather was secretary of state of WI. when republicans were the right side of things. and grandma's nesting tables.



PRETTY PRETTY PRETTY. so glad went later. but the setting sun was better as i saw it. i missed the good shot at the top of the hoan bridge.



Cosmo on the couch.

the scandanavian knife did not get a bid. but a small tablecloth from the same sale has exceeded what i paid at that sale. the knife is gonna go ino my hoard. too dam fine. too damn neat. too damn. damn, that is a cool fucking knife. someday it shall be prominent on my wall.
mine. it is mine now.

maybe i will sell the little troll instead. and the book. maybe.

$7+ for this? i don't get it. but i did say dala horses. and it is quite nice. i suppose. one of those 'god's' poking me in the back saying take it. ebay angel? do i have a collector's angel?'

psst, take that. i know i know, but somebody wants that'



well, this was a MUST GO! boat house. sat and sunday. just art. is that the house that is a boat? YES! story in saturday's paper.
ooh. and so picturesque with all the snows. inside when went in full of artsy-fartsy east siders. i think i am an inside outsider. never much for gathering with classmates.
i did like 2 paitings, but i knew they would be as cheap as my much better biberstien's or even susuko's. all pretty banal. but location location location. it seem exactly like somebody cut off the bottom of a boat and stuck it on land.
and it was gorgeous on the lake front. will post pretty pics soon.
was quite cold and had to wade thru mushy snow barefoot to car. too long and my feet still tingly. but warm. oh my. in the car they hurt so from so much blood in my toes. very uncomfortable.

also, there was an older homosexual couple. interacial. holding hands. sweet. i don't understand why we have to keep them from marrying. who cares if it's icky.



i was trying to find the map from sebastion cabot post, but couldn't find one, did find this map of milwaukee. i actually saw this map in person at an estate sale. i tried to take photos of it, but didn't work. but very large and very neat in person. if only i had money. sigh, but no wall space. que sera fucking sera.
