Adventure, Painting and Snow!

We have been having a lot of interesting weather lately. 

Here is super Zippy!  He is a super hero you know.  

Niether rain, nor sleet, nor snow, nor rainbows....can keep Super Zippy from 
preforming his super tasks. 

Oh wait....that is the postal service motto....except for the rainbow part.

Super Zippy

Along with his side kick Super Bumble.

They scour the countryside for evil villains doing dastardly deeds!

Wait a minute!!!

Why am I the side kick?????

Besides...Zippy is usually the one that is doing the dastardly deeds.  

I am not side kick material.....I am STAR of the show.  

I mean...just look at me. 

Yeah...but you can not fly through the air like I can...

The super duo has been tracking a sinister villain through the woods.

I think I smell something...

False was just  a spider...

A Shamrock spider!

I am getting tired Super Zippy...

but I will do my best to help you find the sinister villain. 

I am sneaking up on something!  

It smells really really bad.

I wonder what it could be???

Oh sad little side is just a bone that I left here under the Hawthorne tree. 

Let's go trusty side kick..


Hey!  This time I did find something.  I used my super sensitive snout to find this. 

It is our arch rival....

Ricky the raccoon!  He is pure evil and we must find him before it is too late.

He has been this way!

Oh CRAP.....THAT is not Ricky raccoon....


I am getting out of here!!!!

Side kick or are on your own!

That was a close one Stuper Zippy..

You mean SUPER Zippy.

Oh he he he...RIGHT.  

Wait....Let's go..

I hear the call of a lumberjack in distress!!!

We must fly to the lumberjack!!!!  

So Super Zippy and Super Bumble flew around 
searching and searching.......

and searching.....

Finally reaching the lumberjacks in distress!

They really look distressed.....ha

What can I do for you silly lumberjacks?   


Stump removal.......are you kidding?????

Apparently they were not kidding.

You know this is when that side kick would come in handy.

Just were is she???

Ahhhh.......It has been a long day....

Well...we had a very light dusting of snow on Friday.

The first one of the season. 

Ollie the snow mule.

Excuse me sir....what do you think of the recent snow???

Oh....I better not print that!

I grew these Peter Peppers this summer.

I am just not sure why they call them Peter peppers though....Hehehe.

This is my newest painting.  
I "think" that I finished it today.  


The end...

    Don't forget to post your husbands drum (give me a heads up so I don't miss it).

  3. What a pair of Super Heroes! and what a lovely painting!

  4. Those super doggies! They are too wonderful! (and so is that painting!!!!!!)
    Great piece, Jill - ANOTHER one!

  5. Great painting! I have been noticing the variations in trees and the wonderful lines they make. You know what I mean?

    You have some darn busy dogs there. And what was that thing in the woods? I would run too.

  6. Thank you all for the very nice comments!
    Maery-that animal is a coyote that is so dark it is almost black. A very strange looking one. It may be some sort of dog/coyote cross. I got it's picture on my wildlife camera. So far only one shot of it in daylight and it was standing behind some grass, so not a clear picture. I would love to see a nice clear shot of it.
