postcards from the edge

This nifty new iPhone app, DrawCast, offers to send
your art via email, share it on Twitter, post it on Facebook, 
or print and send it as a real postcard.
As far as I can tell, they offer nothing to us bloggers.

So last night I did this one 
and sent it as a Mother's Day postcard
to you-know-who. 

P.S. This lack of respect for all things Blogger
is getting on my last nerve. 
I expect that by the time I really figure out blogging, 
it (or I) will be g-g-g-gone.
Might as well send your postcards 
while there's still a post office.

new toy

Uh oh.
Blogger's been fooling around with the equipment,
and everything's changed with the setup.
Have you noticed, or is it just me?

Coincidentally, I've also gotten a new iPhone art app. 
It's called DrawCast and seems to be
 smarter than either me or the dogs.
As it should be with any medium worth doing,
 I doubt that we'll ever achieve mastery.
Here's our very first stab at it.

And then...

At 9 o'clock this morning, a teenage coyote
 (she looked exactly like the one I painted last week),
 trotted through our neighborhood.

At 2 o'clock in the afternoon,
two stray dogs dragged up our driveway.
They hung out in the backyard,
ate snacks and played with Garrett,
while I tried to locate their owner.
Happily, he got my messages and came to get
Boomer and Miles
before animal control got here.

It was a good day.

the mayflower

I had no idea that the Pilgrims drove Plymouths.

mi coyote

My own coyote wants his 
15 seconds of fame.

A dog's enthusiasm
is contagious.

Canine oxytocin.

cheerful wheels

Some wheels just make you smile.

Some smile right back.
