    I have my drawing studio set up all ready to go! I am really excited!
    Work has been a bear. I am working this "semi-retirement job at Trader Joe's...but i have been working 38 hours a week! That's really not my idea of semi-retirement! :D
    Okay...Trader Joe's is the best place i have ever worked. I just gott'a say that. They cherry pick their employees to be the friendliest, nicest, kindest work crew one could hope to be involved with. People who do not fit in seem to move on to other things on their own. And the store Captains and Mates are previous crew members and really great people to work for.
    So Trader Joe's is not my problem. My knees, sciatica and ankles are my real problems. I just cannot go more than four days a week without struggling. I have been working five days a week now since before Christmas. But we have more people now, and i am down to thirty some hours a week, four days a week. I can handle that. Would like to get back to working out so i can strengthen the leg muscles around my knees! And, of course, i am looking forward to getting back into drawing.
    I will forever draw cars, but i want to branch out into portraits and other subject matter. I would also like to get into some surrealism painting and such. We'll see.
    For now i am a returning graphite artist anxious to practice up and get my eye back!

How to make DA work for YOU! by ^kkart
:iconkkart: "How can I get my images seen on DA?", "How come no one ever comments on my work?", "Why doesn't anyone like my work", "How come no one fav's my work or watches me?".  These are the questions =kkart answers in his journal at this link... kkart.deviantart.com/journal/2… . Great ideas and information from a guy who knows what he is talking about and who has been around the block a couple’a times. If you are new here or have been here a while and feel like you are going nowhere fast...then you need to read his article!

Hey! My wife is on DA! Nancy has her own DA account now! She is Storm52, :iconstorm52: and you can visit her by hitting this link... storm52.deviantart.com/

ALL THE DRAWINGS! YAY!

And it's always nice to have a job in which you can enjoy. Seems like you really like the place you're at. Makes all the difference in day-to-day living, ya know? Win win. Now, if only the annoying growing pains would go away, right? XD

I wanted a house really bad. And then when it came time to start seriously looking my wife, Nancy, asked me how badly i wanted to mow lawns, trim hedges, paint walls and such.
So i went condo! :)

If it's a place you can call home and you really enjoy it, then so be it! I'd rather have a nice big lawn myself with no neighbors anywhere within a 50 mile radius, but to each their own ^.^
