Contemplate

I ate my dinner off a contemplate last night. What did you think of it? Ba-dum-bum.

The grip on sanity around here is loose these days.

Am I really stuck in the house with

this crazy woman all summer?

Soaring High

Toby flies in the night sky.

Soaring high

among the stars

Look at the road.

There are no cars.

People locked

in prison homes,

turning soft while

nations grow.

What happens next?

I hate to see.

You’d better learn

to speak Chinese.

Toby innocently stands there, wondering what mommy is looking at.

Actually, I can’t wait to get sick and croak so I never have to hear the word “covid” again.  Aaaagh!!!  (Me?  Overloaded?  Nah…)

You know how salad gets all brown and slimy after a couple of days?  Yes...

You know what doesn't?  What?

Doughnuts!!!

But I thought you liked salad.  NOT for breakfast!

Happy National Doughnut Day!

Helping Mommy Walk

Now that Mom is hurt, i tis our responsibility to help her.  The best thing we can do is stand directly wherever she needs to place her foot when she is walking.

Oh my gosh, would you please go away?!?

I'm sorry!  I didn't mean that.  I want you with me always.  Since I can't lean over and hug you, take these biscuits instead.  You're right.  Helping is the best!

Yes, my boys took full advantage.

Now why would I ever want to trip you?  Hmm…

May the Fourth

(OK, so we’re a little late…)

Toby Wan stands with his light saber.

Here I am, Tobi Wan, the greatest Jedi knight ever! Really? Most boys play Luke Skybarker. Plus, if you're Luke, you get to be The Divine Rod when you grow up.

But by being the best Jedi ever, I might impress that hot Yorkie and get to ask her out. There is no Yorkie in Star Wars.

Sure there is. It's that tall pilot Chewie!Puppy insists that there is a Yorkie in Star Wars - the tall pilot named Chewie.

Chewie is Wookie, you ninny, not a Y orkie...and he's a guy! The Divine Rod, you say?

I’m so embarrassed.

Toby pleads with you to go to my website L Bowman Studios and order something.  Otherwise, he is going to have to keep going for walks with me ten times a day.

You can also order a copy of Dream Our World where Bitey and Toby go to the museum of their dreams.

Today I Am A Man!

Sketch of Doberman peeing on a pole with his leg lifted.

Now I am a man too! In your face! This might mean more if you weren't carrying your stuffies around all the time.

Stuffies aren't manly?

CAirn terrier lies next to stuffed toys.

Stuffies are too manly!!

Without much to do during this lock down, I am expecting a baby boom late this year and early next.  If it happens that you will be welcoming a new life to your family or circle of friends, consider giving him or her a beautiful handmade quilt.

Handmade ASL/American Sign Language Quilt with stuffed monkey posing on top.

Handmade American Sign Language/ASL Quilt

This ASL/American Sign Language Quilt is crib sized (41.5″ x 47.25″) and is an original design of mine.  The quilt is made using hand applique, hand embroidery and hand quilting techniques, so it is quite time consuming to make.  The shell is entirely cotton with a cotton/bamboo batting.

If you can help my quilt find a happy home, I would be most appreciative.    (The cost is $725 with shipping determined by ZIP code.   You can contact me here or  through my website L Bowman Studios ).

Who Was That Masked Dog?

Geordie: Why are you wearing that? You know dogs can't get Covid 19. Toby: Yes but now all the girls wil think I am a doctor.

Toby: OK ladies, Marcus Welby is in the house! Geordie: He probably shouldn't watch so many late night reruns.

Toby will do anything to impress the ladies.
