I know, I know this was almost a month ago, but hey I have good reason for not telling y’all about it. Just give me a few minutes of your precious time and I’ll let ya know what that reason is.
I love looking at and touching art even the pieces that are not necessarily pretty to me. We went to The Woodlands Art Fest back on April 11th and I had a good time. Looking and talking to some artist and taking a few pictures and what not. Nope I didn’t buy anything, I tend to be cheap these days. Speaking of which, I, for the life of me, can’t figure out why some of it cost so much. I mean come on $5,000.00 should get ya more than an unframed 24 x 36 painting. With that said I don't know what these artist prices were. (hint this is a disclaimer) Hah, I should be an artist!
Oh wait I am. Where’s my $5,000?
So’s anyway I still love it. And I suppose they do need insurance and junk, and dear ol’ Uncle Sam insists that they pay taxes, and they need electricity to work by or even use in their art, and then there is the cost of materials for the art…holy cow it’s amazing how expensive some of the stuff I use is. No wonder they charge so much.
Now why did it take so long to post this, well I was busy planning to have lunch. Yes sometimes it takes a while to get up the nerve and set up a place and time and stuff. especially when one is meeting a blogging friend. Which I did. Go ahead ask me who… Okay already I’ll spill the cheese cake Dorriane Darden of Free Ice Cream. She is such a beautiful person! Inside and out, not that I saw her insides or anything. We talked about everything. Lunch took a while. We laughed and poked fun at people, not really I just thought it would peak your interest. Did it?
We did talk about Jai, who we have deemed to be a beautiful caring soul and it must be so, cause we said so. And back to Drain, she has studied hard to become the writer and author that she is, a struggle I’m sure some of you, my dear internets, can understand. Me, well I don’t study writing so much…with its intricacies of grammar and how to say it so that it’s understandable, by people other than one’s self. What the best’est way to write dialogue is and use a specific dialect while doing it. Not to mention the research that is involved, cause a good writer better base something on fact, even in fiction writing. IMO That is what helps to make stories believable. (in case you didn’t know) Holy dictionary ya know that is a lot of work. That’s why I write poetry - no grammar (not much, well by me anyways)
Oh in case you are curious the lunch was awesome, I highly recommend eating at the Cheesecake Factory. And according to dear Dorriane my accent is not that bad hick-i-fied!
Alas I have fallen behind, but just a bit on the PAD—don’t tell Robert. I’ll catch up, heck I bet it won’t take me 2 seconds. In fact I’m sure I’ll spend more time thinking about it than it will take me to write it. Y’all do believe me, right? ah, I know you do.
Now I’m off to the grind stone to sharpen my quills and pulverize some walnuts (for ink), after all I have to catsup. Oh shoot, where’s my paper making junk…
