The sharp dressed man struck again!

You may or may not recall this post from the past, but it was very popular one because people I know tell me they see this guy all the time. I have seen him a few times since the blog even.

The other day I was on a crabby backslide and my friend M to the P took me out for some pomegranate juice and venting.

There I was crabbing away and M to the P says "LOOK! There's that suit guy!"

And there he was:He helped to cheer me right up! Where does he get those suits? Where does he go dressed like that? What is in that suitcase? Why is he always in a hurry?

There are too many questions like this in life to be crabby!

The perfect matchiest thing I saw today.

Look who else was climbing Crazy Horse:

This cute very elderly couple (I am guessing mid-80's) wearing totally matching outfits!

Yeah, I am not very good at drawing elderly people, so just bear with me. Imagine some more wrinkles and their bodies a little frail looking.

These two were walking arm and arm through the woods in their darling matching duds. Insoirational love and commitment!

The brassiest thing I saw today.

Does anyone have a used Baritone for this kid in Worthington, MN?

I sure wish I did!

Crikey! The awkwardest toy I saw today.

We saw this at the Reptile Gardens (a nice spot if you like animals by the way, not a cheeseball as you might think):

There was no stingray in the Ocean Dive playset.

RIP Steve Irwin. I feel bad that this toy is still on the market, but perhaps you would want it that way?

The steepest thing I hiked over the weekend.

Hello there!

I went to Custer, South Dakota over the weekend and hiked up to the face of the Crazy Horse Memorial with my family. The trip brought much fun and many new things to draw for you.

I need to catch up on my drawing, so I am cheating and showing some pictures for now.

Here we are at the top:

I am not sure if you know about this monumental monument project, but one man started it 60 years ago with a chisel, a hammer and some dynamite. No public money is being used to complete it , it is oodles bigger than Mt. Rushmore and it probably will not be completed within any of our lifetimes.

That is crazy!

The first weekend in June they let you hike through the rugged woods to the top. I recommend it if you like hikes, woods, and singing songs like "Climb Every Mountain", "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and "The Happy Wanderer".

The Lovingest Thing I saw today!

I went to a wonderful wedding. It was full of love and caring and smiles. All their familiy and friends were helpful and welcoming and thrilled for them. Heart. Warming.

The bride was a dear friend of mine and the groom was a fantastic man.

Look at those smiles of joy:
I wish "Paint" and my mousing skills could capture their true beauty and bliss.

Not only was the wedding a joy, but the handy groom did one of the most clever things I have seen in a while. My friend needed a little more height on the cute bridal sneakers she bought so he attached a rubber stopper to the heel. GENIUS!
