This is a good read, real food for thought. I'll be thinking about itthe next time I'm in the box stores like Lowes, Home Depot, and especiallyCostco or Sam's Club. > Subject: One Light Bulb at a Time.... > > > One Light Bulb at a Time.... > > A physics teacher in high school, once told the students that while > one grasshopper on the railroad tracks wouldn't slow a train very > much, a billion of them would.

Haircut Time!

Maybe if I look away, she will not see
She'll think I am a bush or a tree
Oh my goodness, I think she can see
that it is Me.
Why, oh why, did I jump up on this table
look away, look away, for the rest of the day
she is pulling at my collar
maybe if I look sad she will take pity
and give the haircut to Little Kitty!
Does this hairdo make my butt look big?
Here Kitty Kitty

For Christmas my son made me an easel, (billboard) with tube lighting. The only problem my paintings are all too big. It really isn't a problem, I have been wanting to display this giclee for over 2 years (no more wall space) and this easel is perfect!!!!!! Love both!!!! Giclee by C.L. Cunningham and easel by Kevin.
