Bonjour y’all.

Just finished this watercolor commission. I’ve been sick with bronchitis past 3 weeks. Much better now. I find it curious that the 2 winters i spent in the mountains I never got sick, like a native American, no guns, steel, or germs up thar. Still, urban pioneering here in Atlanta with my son is a welcome change. Now we just need to find our new Malamute puppy.

    I think a Malamute would be easier than our whippet-shepherd-deer combo, Junie. She has a way of jumping about 5 feet in the air to show her excitement, kicking at the door with all four paws, and chewing up something if left along for more than a few hours (destruction averaging about $10 per hour).

    She’s cute and loving. But not as cute as those Malamute pups.
