I think the problem is the first book was awesome. The second book was ok. The third book is becoming tiresome. It is all drama drama drama drama. A person can only read that the hero has been captured so many times.
Well they are not captured yet in the third book but it is only a matter of time. The bluejay was almost caught once and I almost tossed the book across the room LOL.
I did that once to a John Grisham book. I really shouldnt of because it was a library book.
For shame on me.
This is another tutorial on card making that I am thinking about using the same colors and the same stamp. I think it will even look better. It isnt the swap this month. What a shame!
It is done by the same lady, thats how I found it.

The scoop is... they had a few on a rack and they looked pretty nice for 25.00. So I picked one up and took it to the self check out. It rang up for 46.00. I didnt have the extra 21.00 so I was going to put it back. Then I told myself no wait I will go thru a check out with a person and insist it should be 25.00. So I did and when it rang up for 46.00 I said woe now it shows on the rack for 25.00. They called the CSM (aka Customer service manager (aka also known as I think LOL) (aka laughing outloud))) They sold it to me for 25.00.
So fast forward to last Saturday. We were in desperate need of people food. I still had the straightener in the box. I dusted it off and took it to Lexington walmart and got 51.00 after tax 55.00.
Sad I dont have a straightner though. Kathryn should get me a new one since she is the one that broke my old one.
Thats the scoop. I doubled my profit. On a return. I have actually done better on returns before. I bought a $1.00 clearance item and returned it to another walmart and it was $8.00.

Now are place is a good solid mile from the stadium but parking is at a premium and they start all the way down and beyond where we are located. Last game day that was on a weekday the fans had to fight over the tall weeds for a long hike to the stadium.
Maybe you are wondering why I am bothering with all this. I do have an amusing twist to the storey
The branch manager who actually is a fan of the rival team Clemson doesn’t usually partake in watching an USC game unless they are playing against each other. So the case must have been. Archie thought he would be mighty clever and park at work and walk… saving him the $10 bucks parking fee. When he got to the branch to his bemusement somebody was charging $10.00 bucks to park on the Spatco’s grounds. He politely declined. He allowed them to continue to charge for parking. Claiming he wanted his car to be in the same condition that he left it. I guess he was recalling memories when Karen #1 had her car stolen from the property in broad daylight on a work day.
A bunch of horns were honking and I peeped out the window and 6 or 7 gals in their short skirts were walking to the stadium. I got the guys in service and says you might enjoy this.. bunch of gals getting honked out in minis… the guys took off running outside to peep. What pervs LOL.
I was forced to watch the end of the game. Good news for all you USC fans (SC version) The gamecocks won. Whippee. That is all they are going to talk about for a week until the next game. Whippee.
Next day a guy asked me who won. Every other day I would have been to answer I DUNNO. But I did know. Worse yet, when he asked for what the score was...
I KNEW THAT TOOOOO!

The lady is funny. She says to get the essence of what you see and you dont have to be precise... you artistic license.
Then she tells me I am missing a flower. Butterfly is to big. Pail is to dark.. then she draws on my work.
Let me do it. Its mine!!!!!!
The butterfly one has the potential to being a great painting but I have a feeling it will be great till I paint the dark part of the butterfly. That is where I will screw it up.
Since I have two butteflies ... because the first one was to big and the flower was missing I might practice on that.
