JULY IS ALMOST OVER

This months Art Ventures luncheon was held at The Homestead in Thompson Station. From left to right is Huffy, Mz La, Andy, Winnie, Cat, Peaches,Mz. Hen, Shirley, Kitty Justice, Little and Jingles. We had a fun time and the chicken salad sandwiche was the best I have had at a restaurant in a long time. However, the fire roasted harvest veggies were allowed to get too large. The seeds were huge. I always used squash that had gotten that size in  my garden to make pickles. You core the squash to take out all the seeds and either chop or shred the flesh and peeling. Apparently someone forgot to tell them this small item. I love squash but this was not good . The photo below was the wall behind Huffy, Mz La and Andy.

 This photo and the next were taken on the right side of the room. Yes, I went and looked in the lockers and nothing was in them. 
 There was a long tall window on the right of the mantle so the light interfered with the photo but you get the jest. 
 This photo and Next two were taken in the front hall way . The picture frames had objects in them instead of photo except the one over the couch. 

 If you enlarge this photo of the frame over the couch, you will see the small photos are animals dressed up in human outfits.  I loved the carriage out front and would have paid for a ride if they had been giving them. The carriage seemed more in tune with the area the home was built instead of the decorations inside. 

 Mz Purple was not at the luncheon because she had to go with hubby to the doctor. Knee problems for him. At last weeks art class I brought her a Birthday cake as her birthday was coming up on the weekend. Of course it had to be purple since her favorite color is purple. 
 I have several plants that are under the eves so I have to water even if we have monsoons. That takes awhile to get done. Whew and when it is HOT as it has been of late, I have a tendency to wilt if this Kitty stays outside too long. My walk on cat, Cinnamon was gone a week and a day courting I presume. 
 Every chance I get I try to paint. The well house in the snow and the little 8x10 of the small Church are finished and I am working on the larger one. I have also been trying to put some finished paintings in frames. Almost daily a thunder shower appears. We have lost two really good artist this month. First Robert (Bobby) Vantrese and Betty Lee. In the 1970, Bobby was the first artist I met in Nashville at a drawing class at Watkins. Betty Lee and I were hostess together when I first join Art Ventures. Please  look closer at the sky and you will see it is more colorful now that these two are helping to paint the sunrises and sunsets. I am so sick of politics that I have buried myself in reading two books lately. Also, watched the Tour De France, just love listening to the commentators and learning new phrases such as "finishing line", road is tilting up, etc. Also, the scenery is fantastic. I also was much pleased with the very last episode of Hell on Wheels. The Kitty Justice is to stay COOL.

Bulls and other ramblings

When I visited my sister a few weeks back, Lebanon had all sorts of bulls about her town and each one was dressed up differently. I loved the fuzz white hair one with big pearl necklace and ear rings but alas this is the only bull I found the last time I visited. I guess the rodeo was over. 
Anyway, this one was at the place  where we had lunch. 

I just thought, they not only represented the rodeo coming but that our nation is being fed a LOT OF BULL . Seems like everyone is full of bull. 

Someone I love had a stroke and has now been able to go back to work. Instead of being thankful that they could return to work, they were mad that the doctors did not help them apply for disability. WHAT!!!! I cannot wrap my head around that they would rather be disabled enough to go on disability than get back to work. Others who have had strokes wish they were in this persons shoes. You know some folks are never happy. 

When you wake up you can either decided to be happy and look for the blessings or be unhappy and grumble. 

We all have times and things we can grumble about but you pick yourself up and go on. Some times it might take awhile but if you keep trying you will survive and come out with a smile on your face. 

The Bull is black so I guess he matters. I am so sick of Black Lives Matter I could scream. First ALL lives matter. This movement is only making a division between the races. What does protesting do to help matters. Nothing. You work with the laws and system to get the changes needed and that does not involve protesting. Did you see the Democrats do a sit in and it was catered with nice food. Yep they are truly NOT earning their salaries that we pay them. How come they get to vote on their benefits and raises. Since we the people pay them well we need to be the ones to determine their benefits and salaries. 

I get very emotional when I think about our men in blue. We NEED POLICEMEN to keep the laws of the land enforced. Children should be taught to respect them and not fear them. If they tell you to stop, then you should stop. There are bad apples in all walks of life and they can be removed from their job if the public would give the  departments the chance. 

I wish we all could die of natural causes but with the mentality we have going on in the country I do not see that happen. When you watch the news each morning you are told about the killing going on and lots of times it is black killing black so I guess their lives do not matter since they are killed by another black person. Where are the protest and the great concern for their lives. 

The Kitty Justice is we need lots more of God's teaching in the world and less hate. But the Bible and the Ten Commandments have been taken out of schools and government. I truly wonder if the founders of our country were allow to come back would they stand back and let our country go to hell or challenge the leaders to do what is the honorable thing. 

I think all American should at the ripe age of 18 serve in the military for at least two years and no person could be Commander and Chief unless they too had served in the military. 

THE BIGGEST KITTY JUSTICE OF ALL IS TO WRITE MY NAME IN FOR PRESIDENT AS I THINK I COULD DO BETTER THAN EITHER ONE OF THEM. 

IF YOU CAN READ AND HAVE THE CAPACITY TO REASON OUT WHAT IS READ THEN EXPLAIN TO ME HOW ON EARTH CAN YOU VOTE FOR A CLINTON. 

I WILL NOW BE SERVING BULL.
