H H !

This Boston Terrier looks a bit bewildered because it is halloween and a time to be careful around goblins and ghouls. Stay close to the good fairies, the gold, blue and purple dragons and happy mermaids!

Sailing Forecast: good, stay close to your core.

NYC on the right, the crew sent down a diver into the river to see what they could find. They found what they were always searching for:

Ok mr. worry pug, here is one: I just bought health insurance yet not really certain how I am going to pay for it. Please take worries about going into debt and the ins. co. being able to decide to not treat a pre-existing condition. I trust in divine right order and timing in all things. I am doing my part to not worry and be able to be graceful in floating this boat.

Forecast for tomorrow: safe journeying

Worry Cat Wednesday

This particular cat is not very worried. But I do have a cat up on my etsy shop that i realized is a 'worry cat.' What is one? Oh, something that looks a bit worried that one can cast their own extra unnecessary worries over to. I have a couple 'worry dogs' that are pugs and are going up on my shop tomorrow. They had worried faces on them so instead of changing the faces - let them take on the worries of their owners? I think they will really not notice, because -
  • they are small
  • they are stuffed
  • they are inanimate
  • they aren't attached to things like worry? (maybe they are!)
Someone, please let me know if this is a bad idea.

happy thursday. a self portrait as a dog on a boat, obviously the current is working for me on the mouth of the merrimac (but i know differently from once putting in a row boat in up before route one bridge and had to hail 'may day may day' and get to shore asap).

sailing report: Looks good out ahead

happy october first! "rabbit rabbit!" a traditional saying that means good luck and is a game to see who can utter it first on the first day of each new month.

Here is a new painting of my series "dogs in boats". it is entered in the Chameleon Salon going on today through Sunday. Tomorrow is the Fete! 6-9. contact me for directions at
