a gift of k9 art .. all 3 of them ...

this one really meant a lot, k9 ..
i had been so busy these past months that
thoughts of my brother were far from my mind.
last night i dreamed about him again.
it had been a while since i had done that.
i have a vague memory of dreaming about chickens too
as a matter of fact.. lol ..
really, i do ..
my brother always carried around my uncle's chickens when we lived in the deep south for that one year as kids ..
those chickens just pooped on me when i tried to do that...
and scratched me when i tried to get their eggs..
my brother was the chicken whisperer...


..and of course ..
all of my christmas cd's have meant a lot to me ..
you always try to capture something of the blogger you know..
i do have a nutcracker standing year round on my piano ..

my first cd .. such a pleasurable surprise it was too..
at one time the foam was a schaum during the time
when the k9/she was a k9/he ..
;)

ya..
sigh ..
and still ..
no studio..

once again ..
thanks, beloved k9..
these are such a great gift ..

K9 said...

no! still no studio? and yet you manage to do those lovely sketches somewhere! i enjoyed this years CD because of all the parts..that really is dry polydisperse bulk foam in the background. and the image of you and bro on ski holiday sang sweetly of family and when christmas was fun not a siege of obligations and material pursuits. happy happy Christmas. i know you are on winter break so recharge and pamper yourself as much as you can. xo

Aren't you the lucky one!

A very merry Christmas to you and the foam household and of course the foam pets.

I am glad to know you my ding batty friend!!!

I had a brother too, but he died when I was two years old and he was only three weeks old. He had a heart not designed to live more than a couple of weeks in this world, we didn't know until afterward. He is often in my thoughts, so he is still alive in a way, somehow.

On old photos we are smiling at each other. Strange.

Take care of your memories

foam said...

prism ..
yeah .. our k9 does a really wonderful job with these, doesn't she .. :)

k9,
nope ..
and most of those sketches i sketch while reclining in bed with a drawing pad propped up on my knee..
when it's warm i might sketch at night on the screened in back porch.
i loved the background .. the color .. the texture ..
polydisperse foam, eh? coooool ...

likewise sj,
you whippersnapper you .. :)

rolf,
yes, i remember you commenting about that before ..
holidays certainly bring back memories, don't they..

/t.
thank you ..
but you know to whom all the credit goes .. :)
not me ..

aggie,
they truly are.
ya, one of these days i might have a studio again ..
but, for now, i'm not stressing about it anymore.

blue helene (tafkk)!
yo .. schaumi certainly was a while ago .. :)
the foaming moan was a while ago ..
happy happy to you too ..

LL,
i couldn't agree more ..

Ruela said...

nice price ;)

`tis the holy season said...

(uh-oh Ruela's got a camera! Make sure you're dressed when you're at the computer!)
Hey! Looks like you have music for the holidays, and, being as how these are you, the music must be inside you and you have it all the time. (a theme I think we'll all hear about again)

Chickens?
Chickens?
Feathers everywhere....
sure beats poop and scratches.
what's better'n Dickens
on Christmas with fixin's
Christmas Carols in the air.
Toss some wood in the fireplace and give me the matches...
(and have a wonderful Christmas! which doesn't really rhyme with anything else there, but, ho ho ho any ol' way!)

boneman said...

....cool! You figured who I was.
I forgot that I had that silly moniker on. Been going back to my comments and show my name attached proper like.

foam said...

but, boneman ..
i think i'd recognize your 'voice'
anywhere .. :) .. even with silly monikers as you call them ..

X. Dell said...

These Christmas CDs are the best, and we're so lucky to have K9 around to do them.

Merry Christmas.

Middle Ditch said...

My chickens didn't like my husband at all! They also pooped and scratched him. My brother died when I was sixteen and I think of him often. I have only a black and white photograph of him.

Have a wonderful Christmas Foam and a happy, creative and peaceful new year.

Hug and LOL

Bobby said...

I have dreams of my brother too. We do - in the dreams - what we did back when he was still here with us...: drive around checkin it out shootin the breeze and then some. They're still with us. They make the appearances in our dreams...like they're dropping by our homes, you know?

Indigo said...

Indigo Incarnates

I liked your chicken story, hee hee. I don't think we have any chicken whisperers in Baltimore. We could use a few rat whisperers, however ;)

puerileuwaite said...

I just made a deal with Starbucks so people getting jacked up on caffeine can purchase my 3-pack at the counter.

foam said...

indigo,
rat whisperers, eh?
don't think i can help you there .. lol ..

pug..
dwats ..!!!
why didn't i think of that ..?

Lady Prism said...

foam said...

lady prism ..

and as far as that studio ..
that rests in my hands ..
one of these days it will happen ..

and if it doesn't ... oh, well ..
i ain't sweatin' it ..

Ruela said...

no problem Foam ;)



HAPPY NEW YEAR ;)


Best wishes, for you and your family.

benjibopper said...

lovely memories too. my wife calls me the cat whisperer. lately i've been honing my baby whispering skills. pretty good so far. until the witching hour.

foam said...

happy new year to you too, ruela .. :)

benji,
well, you know ..
when it comes to the witching hour sometimes it takes a breast to sooth the raging beast .. /err/ .. baby .. :)
worked for us most of the time anyway ..

boneman said...

omigoodness, did I hear you say
All of the leftovers were eaten away?
And of course now, everyone's bellies all sway....
Waiting for relief, then to go out and play.

Well, Happy New Year, is all I can think.
Better it's all eaten now, because later it would stink.
And way too much food tossed down the sink.
Maybe next year, mix bells in the chow and everyone can walk around at New Years with their bells going 'clink clink clink'....

(it's true the last line was a bit long.
But it had to be to explain the odd song.
Now, more good news shall come along....
when your clothes don't fit anymore, you can still wear a sarong!)

The lesson seems easy, I think to save mess, would be for everyone to eat a whole lot less.
And then next year when we all look our best, after a smaller meal, we can safely lay for a rest.

foam said...

my clothes still fit .. lol ..
and i reckon i know which blog you came from before commenting on mine .. :)
anyway, you have a happy new year too, boneman..

dianne said...

Hi Foamie my dear friend, I am feeling a little calmer today.
Thank you for the offer of e-mail that was very sweet of you but I'm not going to burden you with my problems, maybe one day when I have something happy to discuss.
I hope you are getting a bit of rest over the break, take care of yourself OK.
I wish you and your loved ones a very Happy New year. ♥♥♥♥

Anonymous said...

hey dianne!!!
good to see you out and about .. :D...
i am so glad to hear that you are feeling calmer which hopefully equates to feeling better?
i also would like to wish you a very happy new year!
oh, and you know .. that email offer extends for anytime ...
i'd never want to be just a fair weather friend.
