Page views have really been down, but then, Facebook is like THE internet for a lot of people now. I haven't had much time for blogging, but if I may be allowed to ramble for a few minutes I'll just say that:
Jaw Surgery didn't put me behind or out of the mood. I healed up quickly, swelling went down super-fast, it was the easiest thing I ever did - totally easier than having wisdom teeth removed. And apart from still being on a broken jaw diet, it's not all that bad. I can do things like blend up my turkey breast dinner and scarf it down with mash potatoes quicker than anyone else because they have to chew it and I don't!! I may post a Jaw surgery post in a few days here for those of you looking into Jaw surgery to help encourage you about the path ahead. I know my life story has always been to handle sickness, injury, and surgery better than everyone else (I always do) but I know there are other people out there who don't and wont swell nearly as bad as I did even and who probably handle pain even better than I do. So I will proceed to encourage. It was easy. Is easy.
My Big boy, Wyatt, a beautiful Easter Egger rooster, passed away in my arms the other day after battling a fowl illness called Coccidosis. It took him rather quickly and I am very sad that he is gone. I put the flowers the orthodontist and oral surgeon gave me on his grave. This has kept me out of the burning mood.
And on Wednesday I went down to pay tribute to a fallen police officer, a man who was killed in action, Officer Steven Green of the Mobile Police Department. The motorcade procession was impressive for such a sombre time and included sqad cards and officers from surrounding states and counties!!! I would estimate the procession included 150 motorcycles, several ambulances, firetrucks, Marine police, Airport security, state troopers, Judges, lawyers, state representatives, the mayor, K-9 units, and retired military, not to mention the large group of family, and the wide circle of friends, and then his lovely wife, all mourning the loss of their hero. I stood there at attention with my hand on my heart for just over 40 minutes until the last vehicle passed. It was quite a procession and one he well deserved.
Now, on to pyrography!! Yet another client commission is out of the way and I have continued burning the Cowboy portrait. However, sadly, my camera is not taking good pictures of my work no matter what lighting and backdrop I try, so bear with me. These are the best representations of my work at this time.
There is more burn present than what met the camera's eye. I am about to kill the family camera. Or...I am apparently, no photographer!!
Thanks for dropping by!! Please leave comments,
