Two Pictures for the Price of One!

Saturday, September 15, 2012

So many of you made comments about not knowing what a javalina is. I didn't know either until I moved to Arizona, but that's the name given to this wild pig. While their features are definitely "pig like" there are some differences. Here's what they look like, and they weigh about 60 pounds.


The other photo I have been very slow at getting on here is a painting that I had done. It is not the last one I painted, but is actually the first one -- I was experimenting, and decided to paint four different flowers on one canvas. I finally got it on my computer (I'm an illiterate)

It's kind of hard to read the writing and in case you don't know your flowers, from top left they are as follows: yellow tulip, pink carnation, under the carnation is a lavender pansy, and to the left of that a poinsetta.

    I have been reading some of your blogs--so interesting! Animals I never heard of!! Amber is my granddaughter, I notice that is the name of your Scottie. They are both adorable, aren't they? I like that you are losing your weight so slowly. I know you wish it came off faster, but the habits you have been practicing the last 3 years are surely ingrained in your psyche and will be lifetime habits that will enable you to keep those pounds off. Of course you had so much less to lose than me, maybe your habits weren't as bad as mine were! Added you as a friend--hope that's okay?

    The Javelina looks like a critter I would NOT want to tangle with & I can see it doing some damage to a dog!
