I'm going to have to get Barb to ban Lesley temporarily until the Christmas cards appear I think!!
I like the idea of a book jacket though - Lesley you'll have to get Nick to horse sit so we can all have a meet up somewhere warm & dry! What do you reckon Tish - world cup in Vegas or the Royal in canada?
You know Tish, if i'm not by the drawing board and can't be found in the stables, could be I'M lurking by the bathroom mirror, pulling faces so as to draw them....... frightening!! .......... amazing .......only the brave go there.............. very helpful too.
My partner Nick always ridicules me when I go outside to see what a wheelbarrow looks like "YOU HAVE SEEN MORE WHEELBARROWS THAN ANYONE BORN" shouts he.
Hi Tish, thanks for your nice words, pleased to be your friend. reading your profile has really inspired me.
Hey, Did you have a sip of Leah's coke? that video cracked me up. Hey folks if you haven't already looked check out the video (it's on the first page) onTish's site, she is a talented actress too.
Gosh I 've been slow to respond, engrossed in getting some drawings done by Friday ( honest Christina I'm at it but it WAS you who introduced me to BarnMice ).
Book Covers..............with a suitable crow bar and a firm slap on the face I have been known to emerge distraught and dissevelled from a commission induced fetal stomach cluch long enough to do one.................
why did i say that???
I know I'm never satisfied........... and when it's for someone else . Arrrrrrrreeeeeegh!!!
Tish discovering your writing has brightened my life.
I hope you enjoy your new home, and furniture is never important. Will you be able to look out at the stars at night? That is the best thing of all. NYC and I look forward to your company.
Happy writing! Karen
HI Tish. What are you doing up so early this morning? It's wonderful to hear from you and I hope you are doing well and that your writing is going well also. Are you enjoying your cottage? And the beautiful weather?
I am thinking of you and sending you many hugs and warm wishes. From NYC
Take care, Karen
Ha - I thought the whole world had gone to bed too. Certainly my family has. It's 11:48 pm right now. You're in Australia - so it must be autumn for you? I notice on your page you produce dressage horses? What a lovely career!
I look forward to seeing it in bookshops! let me know if you come to Milan, I live there. I can suggest some good places to eat pasta - and some credit-card threathening shopping malls too :-)
You're Icelandic? I'm 1/4 Icelandic on my grandmother's side. Small world. Actually, if you click on chater 3 of Unbridled, I've brought a touch of the homeland into it this week. ;)
I love the sweet little face of your horse. She (he?) looks so feisty and kind. "
First, I am not Icelandic myself and have, to my knowledge, none in me. But I agree with you , my horse, he, is both feisty and kind. He just loves to go and have fun and is also very generous and brave yet calm on the ground.
I will check out Unbridled to see the "homeland connection" although I suspect we are landsmen in other connections...
Hi Tish, We got 35cms on Saturday, snow, icepellets.....just a mess. It was a horrible blizzard and I actually went to the Ottawa airport (100kms) to pick up someone coming in from London England. Of course they were diverted to Toronto, then tried again later, circled and were diverted again. So I drove 3 hours home and was 4:00am in bed. She came from Toronto by Limo the next day. Enough of the winter snow! Time for spring!
Heya, Nice to meet you. Yes, I'm in NYC... but formerly in the book trade (hubby still is). I had a mid-life [crisis] career change and went back to school + am now an ESL teacher. I teach General + General Intensive English to young adults here in the city and am working with low-literacy groups out on Long Island... sadly, horses have taken a bit of a back seat (time + finances). Inhale deeply for me next time you are at the barn. I miss that smell!
