My Fellow Inebriates,
Let’s get something going to finish the weekend. Monday mornings suck anyway, so you might as well arrive at work green tomorrow.
It’s freaking cold out, but I have a lot of fur, so I’m going for a Watermelon Martini, made with gin. I miss summer, and although watermelons could bankrupt a person right now, I just want that summer taste.
Admittedly I’m a little morose today…my painting will go to the person who can pony up $38 or more tomorrow morning at 5:00, an hour I’ve never been cognizant of on either side of bedtime.
Do you guys feel down in the winter? Bears are supposed to hibernate in the winter, huddled up with other bears. Their hearts slow down, and they’re tucked away from the wicked world all winter. I’d like to hibernate like a wild bear. But instead I’m going to get wrecked and pass out.

Here’s to your rightful win of the painting. And yes, winter is depressing for people as well. Family gone, spread around the countyr, or children far away at college. The days of being kicked out from family gatherings after imbibing in too much nog -it was NOT me that knocked over the tree. Seriously.
sleep well and hope that the nom martini was refreshing and brought happy thoughts of foraging amongst the summer liquors.
Unfortunately, the winner wasn’t me. The bid was up at 5:00 this morning, and I’ve never actually experienced that time of day conscious before. Plus my parents have been negligent about putting funds in their PayPal account 😦
I hope whoever bought the painting will love it. It’s a wonderful likeness and a great conversation piece.
Bear, I am embarrassed that my painting sold for such an extraordinary amount, no doubt due to your continued interest in same. Please forward a mailing address and I will be honored to send you a complimentary facsimile.
Good grief, that painting should have gone for ten times as much. I just felt happy that it was, for a while, within my reach. I love the Barack Obama series. I’d be delighted to have a facsimile–very humbled and grateful. Address is coming your way.
All the best,
