InkySue in reply to EyzzBrown: aww thank you so much Eyzz .. that was really nice of you. Brother's fiance isn't far from being gone I don't think. I've just been trying to be here for him when ever he needs me .. which means i've been on the phone pretty much every minute he's been awake for several days now. He says he is shocked at how well he is coping.. but the fact that he's been on the phone with me for hours and hours every day pretty much shows he isn't coping as well as he thinks he is. They are saying she's got days at the very most. I don't know that they aren't underestimating her a bit at this point. She's been sick a long time. But at this point, she's not getting any nourishment at all and very little fluid (her wishes) .. no IV.. no tubes. The human body can't last for a long time like that. So I don't see where she's got very long at all. I'm impressed as hell at how good he has been with her. Not entirely surprised. He is a good guy.. but still, fairly impressed. But like you, i'm hoping for the best for him and her. I feel bad they're going through this at all.
InkySue: Been a while since I posted one of these. Done in "Mardi Gras colors" .. the yellow is gold.. just didn't show up in the image as metalic. (Already spoken for)

InkySue in reply to AuroraNorthBorealis: Yeah .. I couldn't stay away from painting for long. lol Felt weird to try to start painting again. It was like I forgot how to set up my work area and mix paints. lol Walked around my table in circles for a while trying to remember what I was suppose to do. lol
InkySue: Hmm.. lets see if people can read.. Ok, males (and anyone else) .. sending messages to me that have something to do with my physical appearance is not going to work. Colorful language is very much not going to work. I am not here for a hook-up.. am not desperate and chances are very good that I am not going to be any kind of entertainment for you. If you are in another country .. think about that very carefully .. i'm not moving there and I have absolutely no wish to have you move here. So really, why bother? I do not want anything to do with talking dirty. If I wanted a date or a mate, I could step out my front door, crook my little finger, bat my eyes twice .. and i'd have one. I do not need that type of attention from you. It is uncalled for to speak to me as if we already started dating. If I was dating someone that talked to me in the ways I have seen lately in messages (and comments on pictures) .. the dating would end. You are on "social media" .. which means that there are other people on here. People are not computers, they are not video games, they are not dirty magazines.. and they are not here for your entertainment at the expense of their happiness or morals. Learn to treat women correctly and you might have a chance of getting one... but chances are ... it will not be me. Have a good day.
InkySue: So, today is the day. Oct 4th. The day when my future would have changed forever if not for a few people .. and also the bank. I still don't know what is going to happen. I wont until around Jan/Feb. Things could still go south.. bout 50/50 chance at this point. But at least things are a bit less stressful. Still scared about what disability is going to do as far as the retro .. and yeah, still worried about the house. I wish I knew already. Waiting is really hard. There are things that I want to do .. changes around here that I want to make. But I don't feel it is wise to do that until I am totally sure. So I wait. It just feels weird to get to October 4th and not be getting in my car and leaving just yet. In a way it is terrifying to know that could have happened (and still could) .. but in a way I almost feel like I should celebrate some how. Dunno. Either way ... happy October 4th folks.. even if it is nobody's holiday but mine.

InkySue: Thank you Aurora .. i'm trying. I'm brain fried from trying.. but still trying. lol Didn't celebrate.. but did make a nice dinner and bought a pumpkin roll at the store. *drool* lol They're awesome. lol If ya were closer, i'd offer to share.

InkySue in reply to fleetwoodgirl: aww good hon.. i'm glad it got there ok. I had totally forgot what today's date is. lol Hadn't looked at the date yet today. lol I'm glad that one gets a nice new home.
InkySue: Great .. gotta love cognitive impairment. I don't remember who wanted to know when the prints/shirts/stuff was available for that soldier painting.
InkySue: "Eternal Soldier" painting was donated to the Vet Center today in memory of my guy that passed in 2003. (some info blurred for privacy)

InkySue in reply to fleetwoodgirl: fanx hon .. yeah, I even had them put his kids down as owners of it... they don't consider a donation to belong to the center even though I consider it theirs. So I put his kids down as owners just in case at some point they wanted to get rid of it out of their little memorial room. Doubt they will.. but if they do, it will go to the kids. LY
InkySue: No prob .. was looking at the bike .. looks very similar to mine tho I think yours may be a bit bigger. I've got an 03 883 (the hugger) .. in black with the white logo stripe and aniv logo tank. I had to snicker when folks mentioned they'd never seen pipes on that side... guess they've never seen a person take a pic from one side of a bike and it flips perspective. lol
InkySue: Ever have a time when things are going so wrong that you can barely pick your head up .. and you go trying to talk to people, but half way through talking you look at them and realize that no matter what you say .... those people are never going to understand what is going on with you? That they can't care .. because it doesn't touch them. And you almost feel bad for them ... that they don't have the capacity to care .. until you realize, that it is you that they don't care about. Gotta love them times, eh?

InkySue in reply to AuroraNorthBorealis: I don't think that is weird .. it was a wonderfully made movie with a brilliant cast of actors and actresses. I consider it a compliment that something I did makes a person think of that movie.

InkySue: Now starts the job of clear coating 19 (count them.. 19) paintings. First order of business after starting the coat on about 11 of them........ stop clear coating myself!! Yes folks ... I managed to clear coat my own flippin arm. Are you proud of me? Are you impressed? I am .. i'm rather proud of my shiny new arm. (That stuff is not easy to get off skin, as it turns out. lol)

InkySue in reply to AuroraNorthBorealis: lol I can't tell what i'm doing in those things and I don't want to take a chance on dropping a painting .. so I hold it in my hand to clear coat it ... and my arm gets a few shots of clear while i'm at it. lol

InkySue: lol roy .. ok, I can dig it. I can kind of see that. lol -- Eyzz .. gotta love a frog. Have been noticing the odd amphibian in a lot of paintings lately. lol Maybe they're drawn to me. lol - lol Chele .. ok now I gotta find the grinning face and the fish .. I think I may see the flower (after lookin.. I think I see the grinner and the fish too. lol)
InkySue: I was painting .. and thought I was finished. Working in pinks, black and white.. looked nice enough. I waited until it dried.. and took another look. I have never owned a cat or been much of a cat person.. though I do not hate cats. But when looking at the background that I thought was a finished painting, my first thought was; "A cat walked through it ..." .... so named it "Foiled By Feline" and tinkered with it some more. Still firming up the black sections on cat and paw prints.. but pretty close to done. Thinking today is a good day for a motorcycle ride. Get away and get my head cleared out.

InkySue in reply to AuroraNorthBorealis: Aw thank you hon .. when that one was posted some place else (fb) it was snagged almost the minute it was posted. I'm doing the clear coat on it now. Slowwwwwly. lol Also been trying to get my brain to function higher than it is able. But trying. Did a little work to the cat picture to firm up some of them paw prints.. they weren't as defined as I would have liked so fixed that. I keep seeing things about the eternal soldier painting that need fixing too .. that one needs to be 10x perfect. They all do .. but that one needs it especially. I seem to be highly critical of my work. But I guess that comes along with the territory. lol
InkySue in reply to kinenyo101: aw fanx .. that one is going to be mailed out on monday to its new home. That and another one. I'm always sad to see them go .. but I can't keep everything and I know that they go to good homes.

InkySue in reply to chickabooms: aw fanx booming creature .. yeah I kind of like that one too .. even unfinished. I think that is destined to be a donation to the Vet center. Something tells me to donate it in memory of my guy that passed ... and then sell prints of it at lower than original cost. But .. gotta decide if it is finally finished or not. It feels like it wants something small.
InkySue in reply to AuroraNorthBorealis: Thank you hon. I think I am still tinkering with it.. need to get a few colors of paint that I do not currently have .. but wont take much. lol Either that or I need to mix a few colors that I do have... that may end up being what I do because I don't really want to buy more "stuff". But .. that one is coming close to being done. It may already be.. I just can't decide just yet.
