Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... September 2018

Happy Caturday Oilycats!!!


Mosc, how is Muffin liking Spain? Have you taken her on any adventures since you moved? I would dearly love to see Spain. So far, I haven't even managed to get to Mexico yet, and is only a few hour's drive.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... September 2018

Spain would be great...and I'd like to see Italy again now....plus Mexico...Marcia, you should really go to Mexico...I think the border areas may have a little more unrest though, at least that is how it was some years ago...but, sure it would be interesting.

I'm slightly excited, have started an art project i can do in spurts so that suits my schedule now, can't show you or tell you though....will when all is done...which will be a few months...

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... September 2018

There are times when one just has to get rid of stuff...I'm willing to throw my stuff away when it's necessary. Right now we're so overwhelmed with things we don't need that it's really ridiculous.

But Himself just can't seem to part with anything. Back when he was a child, a relative gave him a lot of books, which thrilled him, but his mother got rid of them, leaving the boy feeling worthless. He still can't seem to throw anything away. I wish I could think of some way to get this house cleared enough s0 we can find things, but he keeps EVERYTHING - most of it is paper. I love books just as much as he does, so I don't mind that, but it's beginning to be impossible to find things. Can any of you figure out a loving way to handle this?

Speaking of Himself, he now wants this painting, which I was going to take to the gallery last month. So I bought another canvas, and I'm going to paint a duplicate of it for the gallery this fall.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns..... September 2018

Marcia, we hear a lot of oohs and ahs.

Becca, I decided to take my time making the copy of my painting. I will take it to the gallery for November instead of October. I haven't been feeling well, and I have plenty of paintings for October's exhibit.

Can't remember if I sent this cryptoquote, but I think I'll try what it advises.
