Okay, here goes: Attachment 62368 This is after 1 hour's work/play. The outline base was projected and enlarged, then traced. No drawing involved.

Attachment 62369 Here's a copy of the original picture, an African Orchid Vine blossom I picked up off the ground in the Everglades last year. I'm editing out my hand so the flower will float over the background, much as the first flower does.

You know, I only started doing these to improve my pencil skills as a prelude to something else: portraits of my cats. Who knows when I'll get around to them now!

Rest easy now, and as people keep saying: milk it for all it's worth!

Cheers!
Sue
That is beautiful

Thanks, Shara. The flower itself was just stunning. Hope I can do it justice! It's a work in progress.

It's still hard for Martin to do much with his right hand, although his grip improves daily. X-rays show his wrist is healing well and he only has to wear the splint when he's outdoors, but he's lost a lot of range of motion there, so it's time for OT now. It will be easier to work with an outside therapist than to listen to The Wife (who used to be an OT).

Yeah

Diane - glad to hear that your gall bladder surgery went well this morning. (Di posted on RVM2RVM) Here's some extra ohms for a speedy recovery. You now have the permission from your fellow mutants to eat some of the foods that you have been craving since the first few flare-ups.

God Bless

Or at a minimum pic,pic space.
I'm pretty sure 2 side by side will always work and 3 seems to be ok too. Beyond that the scene / app is not smart enough to wrap to next row - and accommodates the pics to right in a most aggravating way..... If your on a windows based system that is....

Hey Steve --- Amy word on the end cap? We are sending Ommms your way too for rig healing and warranty coverage!

No word yet. They had a customer waiting list a yard long. They still aren't convinced that hiring more techs would be worth the expense at $110 per hour. Maybe no news is good news.

Thanx for the ohms. OOOOOOHHHHHHHMMMMMMM

Sue, is Martin installing a wiring harness? We have a CoolTech harness but some people prefer the Mopar. There are lots of knowledgeable Jeep owners that monitor the Motorhome Towing section.

I've told Martin about your question, Sarah. He will look it up later and probably post an answer here. Thanks for your input!

Cheers!

He probably paid some GOOD fisherman for that catch.

Hey Steve, oh great Potentate! How are those ribs? Q sauce ready? Regular basting while rotating near fire always helps mine.

Can't help with the lump on the back of your skull. I don't do brains, as anyone who knows me can attest.

Cheers!
Sue

I am doing amazingly well. Of course got royal treatment. That was great. Both sons were in recovery as well as Larry. Felt so special. Laproscopy worked well but had to do one incision larger because of stone size. No nausea at all. Just took pain pill cause cant sleep. So groggy soon. But all is good and well. Thanks all.

All progressing nicely here Sue! Thanks for asking!!

I did learn many things at the GC @ CL. One is this - my smoker can bake more potatoes in 1.5 hours than a curiosity of mutants can consume - next time we'll make sure there is plenty of butter, sour cream and the like on hand to put this to a true test. But I love my smoker. May need to get me one of those fryers Tim had and a Q Grill - all I need next is a vendor license and a few more RVM recipes to open up shop.

Don't forget - use the Contact Us form on www.rvmutants.com to send me your recipes for inclusion in the First Ever RVM Cookbook!!

As most of us would agree, too many restaurants don't go out of their way to present dishes that are based on good, old, delicious recipes that are the result of good, old, comfort food. Regional favorites would be appreciated rather than the blah, blah, blah, blah of national chains and locals that want to copy national chains.

There's some good food at most restaurants. Uniqueness and mouth watering favorites are glaringly uncommon. Put our 25 -30 recipes in PA, TX, AZ, IN, KS, OH, WA in a restaurant with good service and you'd have yourself a winner. IMHO
