Book quiz nails me...

In six easy questions, this book quiz pretty much got it right.

You're Waiting for Godot!

by Samuel Beckett

Many people think you're extremely dull, but you're just trying to be patient. Really patient. Patient to the point of absurdity, quite frankly. Whatever you're waiting for isn't going to just come along, so you can stop waiting. I promise.
Move on with your life. Change of scenery might do you good. Heck, any scenery might do you good. In the meantime, you do make for very interesting conversation.

Illustration Friday-Twist

This is my entry for IF's "twist" topic. And you get two for the price of one! Click on the images for a bigger view, and appreciate the textural detail! And maybe smell the cinnamon.

I've been very busy lately. For a bit of the summer I'm feeding 200 boyscouts three meals a day for 6 days a week. It's both back breaking and very rewarding. So far I've managed to make homemade cinnamon rolls and other baked goods for each group. So for the topic of twist, I easily saw the cinnamon twisted into the hundreds and hundreds of rolls that I've made so far. Is there anything better than the smell of fresh baked cinnamon rolls?

I even have a blue ribbon for cinnamon rolls from the Minnesota State Fair, the second largest State Fair. A proud accomplishment. How many little old ladies did I beat out, I wonder! I was about 35 when I did that I suppose.

Because of July 4th I've had a few days off. It's been fun to do some illustration.

Thanks to all who stop by. I won't have time to visit many blogs until after August.

Oh, just posted "camoflage" too. So check that out if you like.

Illustration Friday-Camoflage

This is my entry for IF's "camoflage".

I've been super busy, and I've really missed creating my weekly IF entries. My opportunity to post will be very "hit and miss" until after August. Then I hope to be regular again. (Yea, fiber!) Pardon my junvenile humor.

For this illustration, I wanted to try something different. I drew the lines in Freehand and then pulled a wallpaper pattern into Photoshop where I combined everything.

What do you think?
