Not The Outhouse

When I was up at the Silver Saddle Ranch the other day I noticed that there were a number of out buildings.... not out houses though.... so I painted one of them. This was not an outhouse.... but I thought I would try to post some outhouse quotes. Wow. Too hard to find outhouse quotes so I posted some bathroom signs for your entertainment  :-)

Kissin Cuzins

I don't have many cups around here for serving coffee, especially plain colored cups.... so I had to visit the thrift store around the corner. Well I got these. They seem to work OK.  Probably will not service coffee because I don't drink it and there may not be anyone who would drink what I did make  :-)

“An empty coffee cup is full of hope. Now there’s something worth voting for.”
Jarod Kintz, This Book is Not FOR SALE

“It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity.”  ― Dave Barry

Silver Saddle

Had a great time at the Silver Saddle Ranch paint out with the Reno-Tahoe plain air painters this week. Painting on location is always fun .... I guess the best part is visiting with the other artists

Caught at the Pool

We all have our thoughts about the swimming pool. I thought I would share some of those with you:

When I was in my 20s, I thought that being known for 'Swimming Pool' was kind of a burden. Like, 'OK, everyone thinks I am this tanned bimbo,' and I was having problems coping with that image.

Al Pacino -  I'm an actor, not a star. Stars are people who live in Hollywood and have heart-shaped swimming pools

Bruce Lee  - If you want to learn to swim jump into the water. On dry land no frame of mind is ever going to help you.

 Warren Buffet  - Only when the tide goes out (really really fast) do you discover who's been swimming naked.

soooo, here she is, swimming at the pool one day
