gasoline turpentine

in honor of continuing gas gouging by our friends in DC, I'm going to start filling my tank with used turpentine and enjoy that post-paint smell .. good night, joe d.

ACLU Auction Sell

just wanted to drop a thanks to Pat Bates of Parkville, MO for purchasing the 'Street Sax Man' piece in the recent ACLU auction. Didn't know that it sold before I left, but she put $125 into a good, solid 21st Century cause .. here's a link to the piece: - cheers, joe d.

baby medicine & meth heads

i went to the local pharmacy yesterday to get 3 tubes of medicine for my 20-month old miles due to a stuffed nose and cough .. as i went to pay for my goods, i was told that i would have to show my driver's license and sign for this over the counter goop .. after that, they said that i was buying too much and that they wouldn't sell it to me .. i quickly told the clerk that i would gladly bring my son up to the shop to demonstrate my need and that it was sily to do this .. at that, she whispered the following: 'don't tell anybody i did this'. following that, she explained that due to a new law cracking down on meth heads buying over the counter meds that all this nonsense has to happen .. it was probably the stupidest thing i have ever been through in my life .. so, you can rid the notion that a simple law won't effect you or yours and in this day and age you are dead wrong .. cheers, joe d.

i haven't been much of a morning person for the last decade or so .. but these days, i fly out of the sack to grab a brush in the morning .. best way to wake is the smell of paints and coffee as the sun gently rises over the garage windows .. so, don't discount the morning in leui of the evening's charm .. both are equally charming .. one with hot liquid, the other with cold .. good morning - joe d.
