We're having the breaks done on our Honda Odyssey and the dealership provided a loaner to us. It has been a long time since I have driven a "car." It is so fast, compared to a minivan or SUV. It was fun to drive while I had it.
It's funny you say that. The Toyota Sienna we used to have(someone T-boned my wife sadly) could smoke the tires if you stomped on it. My buddy at work used to get so pissed that our van had as much HP as his v6 Mustang.

Here are a couple of quick sketches I did the past couple of days of my little nephew:





And the real thing

Re: PICTURE POST II!

We just got back from our Disney cruise this afternoon and I saw that my brother-in-law posted this picture of me from formal night. I was just trying to ham it up but it tunred out to be a semi-decent picture of me.



I can't wait to go through all the picks I took.

Matching light reflections in the irises/corneas. That's attention to detail.

I wish boredom always triggered that level of creativity and talent in human beings.

Very nice sketches. I'm very jealous, as I am artistically disabled; I have trouble making stick-figures.

ooooooooh, another addict! Do you happen to know a free version that runs on Vista?

(And I think that nephew of yours will break quite a few hearts in 16 years. Particularly if he keeps that smile )

Awesome sunrise, Praetor! Ours have been far less impressive here, the last months. It's been foggy here since the end of October.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

If I channeled my late night boredom into things other than Star Wars Angry Birds, YouTube and the Trek BBS my art portfolio would probably double in size in just a short space of time. I draw fast and I used to draw in quantity.

Re: PICTURE POST II!

My wife and I went out to dinner last night, then met up with some friends at a dance club. Now I haven't been to a dance club in over 15 years, so it was a lot of fun. The boys sat around and talked over the really loud music and the girls danced, fun was had by all.

At dinner, I had Chicken n' Waffles for the very first time. It was fantastic, everyone says how great it is but until you have it, you have no idea.


The dance club we went to is Benjamin Franklin, Founding Fathers themed. Sound very odd but it was cool. They had all kinds of stuff from the revolutionary war inside. Here are some pics from the outside.



We were out past midnight, something I haven't done in a long time also. Of course the kids were up at 6:30am. Glad I didn't drink all that much, the wife on the other hand...well I took the kids downstairs and let her sleep for a few more hours.
