The Honeycreeper

This girl! She'd rather get the flowers than take care of the flowers.
No Honeycreepers here.

Alligator Weather! Go go go go! Get outta there!
No honeycreepers, just hungry crazy alligators in the sky.

Do we have time for one more picture?
I think this is a Honeycreeper. I wonder what they really look like?

There actually is a kind of bird called the Honeycreeper…
Look! A real honeycreeper!
It lives in Brazil (and other nice places) Not bad!

Thanks Wikipedia!

Silly story

Once upon a time…

I saw an interesting cloud in the sky.

With some effort I turned it into a musical horn: a doodlephone!

But it wanted to be glockenspiel instead. What a crazy instrument!

It made so much noise, the birds wouldn't sing anymore. I think they were embarrassed.

And the doctors just made the problem worse!

I think that at the end of the day, they discovered that the cloud-doodlephone-glockenspiel was happiest being spaghetti so we had it for dinner. It was really good but I had strange dreams that night. I dreamed of clouds that have opinions and wind that changes its mind and rain that goes up and words that go down on paper and slide right off the edge… into a whole ocean of words! The End.

A New Year's Miscellany

"Isn't that what they want?" the hen reasoned. The pensive rooster sulked on top of the wall and regarded the coming day. The sun rose a little more in the sky.

"They've had it with you singing so early in the morning and waking them up. But Rooster, isn't that what God's plan for you?" Why do you let a few silly humans tell you what to do?" He fixated on a few ants who mindlessly marched on the underside of the top rail of the wall. "Sigh… "

She went on: "You think that if you sulk they will feel bad and beg you to crow again. Ha! Maybe you can take some singing lessons…?"

The day was going to getting warm; he needed to get off that fence.

…to be continued, maybe

What are you looking at? A rooster on a leash, indeed!

We spent New Year's Eve in snowy Bethel, Maine. At 7:00 a.m. on Dec 31st, I was privy to the local Rotary Club year-end breakfast. After a rousing rendition of "Hail, The Gang's All Here" and a sturdy recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, they ate scrambled eggs and drank mimosas and coffee.

I'm working in a tiny sketchbook at the moment so there will be lots of quick little vignettes like the one below as I start 2014. More involved works seem to do better in the larger format books.
Splashing in puddles. Why?
Bonne année!
