I am working on a super-secret project. Well, it is not SUPER-super-secret, just kinda super-secret. It is a personal project that I have been thinking about for many years and now I am starting work on it. In the past, I have made two hand-made books, bound and sewn by my own hands. They are not great, but I really liked them and enjoyed making them. Now, I am going to do it, again, but this time it will be even better. I am making a font for it. I am making each letter in an 8×10 block so that I can get details in it and then I will scan them in and make them the size I need. Fun, fun, fun!
I made the letters “A” and “B” and colored them, before moving on, but then I decided to do all the drawing and inking of all the letters. Then, when I am through, I will go back and do all the coloring, because I can do that while watching Columbo or Father Brown. LOL!
I have three oil paintings in various stages of development.
I have been going to Publix and spending Ron’s breaks with him. Sometimes, I eat my lunch with him and then we play skip-bo or backgammon or both, depending on how long his break is. Twice, now, Mamoo has come with me and we have done her grocery shopping afterwards. She is now in a wheelchair for shopping and I am sure it is funny to watch us in Publix. I push Mamoo and Mamoo pushes a small shopping cart. We go very slowly and have lots of fun. LOL! Everyone is getting to know us there. And Ron is not the least embarrassed by us! LOL! I also took Mamoo to a couple of art exhibits here in Leesburg. She really enjoyed it.
While on my reading break, I am reading the book “The Wit and Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln”. I know, I know… I am supposed to be on a reading break. I can’t go totally without reading something!
The quote, today, is from this book.
Some gentlemen, fresh from a Western tour, calling at the White House to see President Lincoln, referred to a body of water in Nebraska bearing an Indian name which they could not recall, but which signified Weeping Water. Instantly Mr. Lincoln replied, “As Laughing Water, according to Mr. Longfellow, is Minnehaha, this must be Minneboohoo.” — from the book, The Wit and Wisdom of Abraham Lincoln
