Reason for Hope

After finishing a snow makeup day, and snow still on the ground, what a welcome sight to see flowers blooming in my backyard today.

We still have more Saturday school on the horizon. I really loved the casual look displayed by my cohort Charles. Who says you can't teach Math and Science in your jammies?

Snowday Stroll

The past two school days have been declared "snow days" by those in charge. Yesterday had some rain mixed with snow for about a half hour, then it turned into a beautiful day. It started snowing again before going to bed last night, but ended with only a dusting. Still that's enough to close the schoolhouse in these parts. So what does one do with an unexpected day off? Do I complain about having to make up the missed school days on Saturdays and maybe during spring break? The thought definitely crossed the mind, but no, I braved the elements for a nice walk with my faithful compadre Bruno.

The always ready, all-weather shepherd, Bruno and his ubiquitous tennis ball.

"Major" snowfall- Asheville style.

Stark contrast.


Blatant diss.

Walking among giants.

Play ball!! When does spring arrive? Who's counting?

I made this stencil for my buddies Chassner and Parks, who have a musical project here in Asheville called TackleBox. 
They claim their music, like the band name implies, seems to have a lure or jig for any situation and/or taste.  That, or they found it funny that  football announcers use the term "tackle box" to describe an area where the quarterback is safe from vicious hits.  However, if he steps outside of the "tackle box", he is fair game and fresh meat for a hungry defensive lineman.
Look for TackleBox shows coming soon to the Asheville scene. 
For right now, take a deep-sea adventure, tacklebox in hand, with The Good Sense in Beginning.  This is from Chassner and Parks earlier project from their days in Tallahassee.  

Don't be afraid to step outside the TackleBox!!

Good Buddies

Harlen and Bruno. Next door neighbors. Yard wrestlers. Chewers of sticks and bones. Biters of collars and necks. Snowball eaters. Wet fur shakers. Possessive toy protectors. Best friends.

On a roll...

This is my boy, Philippe.  It's cold out.  I don't have to work.  I could do this all day. 

Speaking of taking the stencils further, check out the B.O.G.- Better Off Garments site my incredibly multi-talented friend Johmi Spafra is working on in Florida.  Do I smell a co-lab-rat-nation in our future?

Another Stencil
