|"Blaze" watercolor and gouache|
First the refrigerator made a bad sound.
Then the printer joined the ranks of the loudly complaining...
Now Super Truck? NOOooooooo!
Almost a grinding, but not quite...
But not all the time...
No, not just when I turn the corner...
Wait, it sounds like something is dragging...
Or stuck next to a tire...
*gets out of truck and checks in wheel wells*
*drives to Costco listening to intermittent nasty sound*
*sigh* I will take a momentary break from the disaster of yet another noisy attack from the mechanical contrivances. Ahhhhh - shopping.
*sigh* But it can't last forever. Okay, let's load up all the stuff from Costco - just shove it in here around all the recycling...
*bends over at a very uncomplimentary angle*
What is that???? *reaches under truck - which makes other angle look like a super model in full formal regalia*
If I can just reach this *grunts* and yank it out *this is not pretty - thank me for not sharing a picture*
What was "IT"?
A weed. A big whompin' carcass of a sheep weed (second cousin to a tumbleweed in the annoyance factor). At least the tumbleweeds have the decency to evaporate when I run over them... Sheep weed is more like a tree... with a trunk... and limbs that grab on to stuff under a truck and hang on for dear life while emitting a terrible scream when you drive down the road.
Oh, the picture of "Blaze"? What does it have to do with nasty weeds?
But Blaze is much prettier than the ugly weed carcass. I don't know about you, but I would MUCH rather see a horse than try to unhook a weed tree from underneath my truck in the Costco parking lot.
Hope you had fun today - I did after I heard Super Truck purring along without the Sheep Weed Tree!
