The True Way

“Keep your love of nature, for that is the true way to understand art more and more.”

Like Father

“Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat. Then fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher's mound. Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together. Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again.”
Jimmy Piersall, on how to diaper a baby in the old days, 1968

The little guy on the left is my grandson at age three days. The one on the right is his father at the same age. Happy Fathers Day!

“To err is human - but it feels divine”
Mae West 1893-1980

Green Blue Truck

"You might be a redneck if... the blue book value of your truck goes up and down depending on how much gas it has in it."
Jeff Foxworthy 1958-

Regardless of its value or what’s in the tank, this truck is not going anywhere soon. It is rooted in Yorkville, CA.

Getting The Bark On

As the poet said, "only God can make a tree,"
probably because it's so hard to figure out
how to get the bark on.
Woody Allen 1935-

It is very hard to do. Unless you are a dog. Dogs know how to get the bark on.

Product Placement

“The trouble with us in America isn't that the poetry of life has turned to prose, but that it has turned to advertising copy.”
Louis Kronenberger 1904-1980

Is it "art copies life" or "life copies art"?
