Michael really gives us a challenge with his "Fill in the Blank".  The above is what we had to work with.  I didn't know we were going to get an extra week to work on it so I grabbed my sketch book and drew the two forms.  This is what happened in the next 10 minutes.  After I saw that we had more time...I decided to just go with my first thoughts and sketches.



What comes to your mind when you see these to "forms"?  To see what all the other artists came up with, just click on the Scribble Picnic badge near the top of my sidebar.

Thanks Michael for hosting this, and S-T-R-E-T-C-H-I-N-G our brains..HaHa.

Tristan and Tiger 
Peas and Carrots

This cat will not leave Tristan's side.  He sleeps with him, is always on his lap, and now I see he oversee bath time.  They are like peas and carrots!!!

How nice to have such a buddy.

We do have fun!!!  Last night our son Myk called and said he and Kaleb our grandson were in the area and going to stop by.  We laughed and talked and I know Kaleb's favorite pie is pumpkin.  I had ONE piece left and there was a little fun fighting over it, but Kaleb won!!! HaHa.

I love my boys!!!!

My one eyed bandit has now become Mr. Cool.  He is feeling really good.  Taking it easy, but today I loosened my grip, and let him go with me to walk Molly.  He is holding the leash so I could get his picture.

The cane gives him a little more balance until he can really see clearly again.

I'm amazed how many of you or your loved ones have had cataract surgery.  Unfortunately there is no surgery for glaucoma for me, so I will continue my nightly drops.  It was caught early, and my last appointment showed no increase.  I said eyes and ears are so important, so I'm thankful every day for my hearing aids and my Lumican drops.

We all have much to be thankful for.

Pray for the people in Northern CA and the horrible fires.  More fires this year than I can every remember.

I took this picture Monday when I brought my dearest home from cataract surgery.  He was ready for a needed nap.  Dr. Woo said his eye was a challenge so the procedure took a little longer than expected.

This morning they took the bandage off, and she was very happy with the results.  He has had no pain, and other than all the many drops required daily, he's a happy camper.

For those of you who knew he was having surgery, thanks for your prayers.

PS:  My new job for a few days is all the driving, lifting and dog walking.  I don't mind at all.
