Fitness… has HH ever used that word?

Checkers narrates...

Checkers narrates…

Checkers here…  I know what you’re thinking folks… You just haven’t seen ol’ Checkers T. Mouse for a while.  Believe me, it’s not my fault.  In the move from the old studio to the one here in the condo, I got shut away in a hat box and was just let out the other day.  Rude, right?  Enuff said.

So, I have much to say to catch you up on everything that’s happened in the interim.  So let’s get to it:

First of all, FITNESS

Take a look at this sign:

So, let me tell you the story behind this sign.  HH was halfway to the airport to pick up a friend when she heard that the flight was delayed. Rather than go all the way home, she headed for the health club.

As she entered the parking lot, she noticed a sign in the row farthest from the building. The big sign said ” This Row Reserved for those Dedicated to Fitness.”  So, since it was the only row in the parking lot that was completely empty, she parked there and read her book for 40 minutes.

LOL!!! As I said in the title, have you ever seen HH use the word fitness in any blog post except for the ones about the boys?  No, you have not. And, luckily, she did not get a ticket for parking there without being truly dedicated to fitness (in her heart).

Writing Update

HH is about to finish her book, Before You Write.  Yes, she’s been working on it a long time, but it’s gotta be good with all the work she’s put into it.  It’s full of suggestions and information people need when writing a book…

When will it be out, you ask?  Probably in about 6 more weeks. She’s planning to have it for the book fair at the Eau Gallie Civic Center in November for sure.

Art This Week…

I’ve started a new flower series. This is the first painting. It’s acrylic and is 8″ x 8″ x 1.5″ on gallery-wrapped canvas.  It’s ready to hang or can sit on a bookshelf.  You can see it and others on Lou’s (HH’s) Daily Paintworks Gallery

DPW Flower 0001

Below is the post card Lou uses for a business card.  I’m putting this here to remember to tell you that Lou is in the process of loading all the KittyScape paintings onto the Daily Paintworks Gallery. When she’s finished, she’s going to have a huge sale for Christmas or whatever reason you might come up with to buy one.


And, here’s a picture of some of the ones she’s uploading…  Gina the Magnificent arranged the pics on the wall… Great job, Gina, and as you can see, Bugsy and Knuckles supervised.

Sunday Selfie

As usual, we are participating in the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop put on by The Cat on My Head blog.  Please join in.  This week the selfie is not really a selfie, but Bugsy got carried away.

For the first time in history, he jumped onto the shelf above the studio tables.  Never done it before. HH and I discussed it and we figured that his weight loss has made him feel light as a feather, so he decided to fly.

In this pic… it appears that he’s about to jump on Helen’s head… he did not, however, but HH let him figure out his own way down.


That’s it for today…

Have a great week,

hugs, Checkers, Bugsy, Knuckles, and HH (L0u)

    I get the feeling HH is too busy for a fitness program. That’s it, right? 😉

  2. We agree with Summer…HH has waaaaay too much going on to be dedicated to fitness. 🙂 We love all the art on the wall!

    Hey, Checkers, nice to see you. It indeed has been long time. Looks as if Lou is doing a good job with that de-stuffing! Mom loves the hydrangea painting, and is excited to hear that some additional art will be available for purchase. Thanks so much for hopping each week and starting year three with us.
