My 4th

I wore my "That's How Freedom Will End, With a Rustle of File Folders" T-shirt. Because what better time to remind people?
I didn't shoot cannon. I was feeling hot (hmm, maybe menopause), and the idea of putting on my Civil War uniform just didn't appeal. If it's not seeming fun, why do it?
I did a 3-minute figure sketch to make sure I still could, using a '20's actress as a model. Hmm,not bad for quick and dirty. I just needed to check on whether my art was going the way of "use it or lose it."

I found a lost dog after the fireworks, a little fuzzy guy running in the street, terrified. I picked him up and he was shaking like a leaf. I checked some houses near where I found him, but no one could ID where he belonged. So I took him home. Early the next morning, I posted notices all around the area where I found him. To make a long story short, by noon, a couple of preteen girls showed up on my doorstep to happily reclaim him. Seems the gate was broken, and they and folks got home at 11:30 to find the dog missing. They were happy someone had taken him in.
