Caution

Tabitha told her father
not to add to much
yeast. " I know what I'm
doing honey." he replied.
She had cautioned him
many, many times before.
There is still remains from
his last meal on the ceiling.
hee he hee !
Have a wonderful weekend!

The nail polish on the girls feet, his socks in the flip- flops, and this beard. I couls look at your pictures hours and hours.

Ces said...

My dear Vanessa, that agile mind of yours! Oh wowie my! You are quite the mental ninja, sister. You are funny, you have a wicked sense of humor. Your creative FPOT! You have a huge FPOT my dear! Your hands! Oh your hands, take care of your hands! (Damnit, mine are shut) They create fabulous illustrations, you have an ecclectic array, truly original and wonderfully crafted and then, then there is your heart, a big as New Jersey, oh what am I saying? New Jersey is tiny (I know I lived there), your heart, your heart is as big as Texas! Yes Texas because Alaska is cold. Texas where it is warm and hot and makes you perspire and be aware of life, just like your drawing!!! Oooh I have this very public persona on the blogs and in my profession but I am really a recluse when it comes to my personal life but I am so tempted, so tempted to just ask you if you want to have coffee with me the next time I mozy on up to New Jersey, ACK, ACK, I am so tempted and I want to give you the biggest hug ever! YAH! Thank you my dear dear Vanessa!

Peter Breese said...

Very nice V. Great pose on the dad!

Bella Sinclair said...

BAHAHAHA! I am crackin' up here on the dad's socks and sandals. He is a complete HOOT! Actually, I'd like to have a mile-high cake. Sounds kind of yummy. It'll put a little more jiggle in my wiggle, but there's nothin' I won't do for cake!
