Do you have art styles that you really like? What happens when you
see a form that is new to you? Do you dislike immediately or do you
give it a chance?
We all have likes and dislikes. Many of us keep changing and like new things.
Some like to stay with the old. Which one is you?

I had a weird experience today. What day do I have that I don’t? I went to the gas station. I was paying for the gas before you pump it. I gave the clerk a ten dollar bill and several others. He looked at it (was korean) and said the ten doesn’t look right. He held it up to the light.
Well that bill was with some I had. I said–I will give you a twenty instead. I looked at the bill later and it had the all the markings of a genuine bill. But I checked the date on it and it is a 1934 Series A ten dollar bill.
So maybe this bill is special. It is in good condition. I had it with some money I saved from a special day.
When you are shopping in the food store. Beware of those packages of vegetables that are marked special priced and packaged in a cell pack.
I bought some peppers. Peppers are high here. So I thought a good buy. Not. When I opened it up to cook. Two were a little soft. Three reds and a green.
So I was cutting and tasting one of the reds. Yuck. It was moldy in the inside. So watch out for that great buy.
Some time ago I noticed a really strange bug. It looked so much like a part of
So I ran inside to get the video camera.
The following is the result that I posted on my You Tube Channel.
This is the Walking Stick’s debut….
I wrote this poem some time ago.
Then one day I saw this contest in a magazine. It was for a poetry site where
you submit for an anthology poetry book.
Yes–prizes where supposed to be awarded.
The book it was supposed to be in was expensive and designed beautifully.
Your poem could be on mugs, magnets and more.
Well–I never won one of the prizes. But some time later—my poem appeared
on a poetry online website. Daily people could vote on whether they liked it or not.
Just because I submitted to one contest (I obtain copyright to this poem)—it seems like they say went forth and multiplied.
Which goes to say—you never know what you are getting into.
So here is my poem. I found out it is on Poetry.com—currently.
How did you get your name
It is quite a shame
The way people pluck out
Your dainty yellow head
Peeping shyly out of flowerbeds
Tossed out of lawns, dead
Sitting so shiny and bright
It does not seem right
Something so pretty
Considered a noxious weed
Would you believe
Is a first hint of spring.
All right. I take a long time to buy things.
I have needed a new mixer for the kitchen. The old one is a White Westinghouse. It works but sometimes hesitates. So yes –it is old.
So I went to the local Kmart—it seems like they had a special.
Yeah —right. There was a mixer that rests on a stand for $25 dollars –only comes in red.
Then there was this Hamilton Beach Hand Mixer 62692—comes with beaters and a whisk. The mixer then rests on a Snap On Case.
Boy—when you try to mix your batter—the beaters fall out. Won’t lock in. Then the cord is so short as you mix—it comes out of the wall. Okay—when done—if you last that long—place on top of flimsy storage case and hope it doesn’t fall over.
Guess I will be returning it. I had to make some cookies for
the upcoming art show that I will be in. What a definite hassle!
Some time ago I made a video of an upset little squirrel in a tree. He was crying
and barking as the tree swayed in the wind. It was obvious he saw something below that frightened him.
So get ready with your camera—if you are a nature lover. It is the time of the year, when young squirrels go out on their own and explore the world.
Yes–they will bark.
