some days...

Do you ever feel like a dog in the back of a pickup truck? I do...

I wonder who's driving? Is he drunk? Where are we headed? Is there a map or a plan?

And why are we always so perilously close to the ditch?

Well anyway our snow is gone. Winter is still here. The foot of snow was pretty exciting, a real novelty here in Texas, but soon we were ready to retreat into our bubble domes.

And now I am thinking how nice it would be to travel to a sunny clime
and check into a swanky motel with a pool and an ice machine...
and maybe a futuristic antenna.

Or maybe a sea voyage is in order. I can be packed in an hour.

But I'm staying close to the lifeboats!

Everything feels a bit unsteady and I refuse

to go down with the ship!

Gotta' run! My ride's here.

We'll probably just go for a ride around the block,

stop for a hotdog and a Coke...

and look for signs of spring, like robins and tulips

and pink cars!

Happy Thursday! xo~Dale

How lovely to discover your blog! Always nice to meet another Texas blogger.

I'm a friend of Polka Dot Jan, and might be attending the next Paper Cowgirl retreat with her this Summer. It would be fantastic to meet you, your art is incredible. :-)

All the best,

That's me in the pink car, isn't it? Love it. I am ready to plan some trips for the summer. Even if it's just up the alley. :)
