    Thanks.

    I spent much of my childhood on a farm/ranch, and rode horses in 4H. The last time I rode was in my mid 20's, as a part time job, riding around fields with a long hoe, weeding. I managed to last the day, but called in sick the next. It had been 5 years since I'd been on a horse, and I was having trouble walking, sitting, and standing. The idea of getting in the saddle the next day made me sick. :)

    From learning to ride on an ornery shetland to raising my own colt, it was a wonderful experience. Well, the last incident wasn't so great, but it makes a good story.

    I'm sorry, but all things considered I've always preferred motorcycles over horses. They don't need to be fed on their days off, they don't poo in the garage, they aren't afraid of...well, everything, and if you get thrown off it's your own fault. :)

    They also don't come to the fence asking for an ear scratch and apple. Whether that is a plus or minus depends on you. :)

    Well, my experience is limited both to horses & to motorcycles (although my brothers would be more positive about the latter); BUT, I must say that spending a couple of years w/ horses (just periodically as when we took lessons & rentals), I really felt a more 'warm' attachment - we took some lessons in our town town @ Hidden K Stables - Ken who runs the stables gave us lessons & his wife teaches Dressage @ Wake Forest University - the horses were wonderful - playful and seemed to really like you w/ their heads over your shoulder - don't think that a piece of metal could do that? ;) Dave

    I should say that I've owned a motorcycle too, and enjoyed that as well. It really isn't an either/or thing.

    Well, I guess that life indeed is wonderful considering the variety that we have the privilege to enjoy - Dave :)

    Had to try another Astro Boy drawing.

    This time I used the Sketch Club app, and tried to make the buildings in the background look like Seattle; which took longer than the rest of the sketch elements combined.

    No challenge for this one, though I did do a similar quick sketch today on the same subject. The limitation was to use only certain tools. I was already in the middle of this drawing, and since I already had it more-or-less planned out, I winged it for the challenge. The result was kind of Astro like. I guess I need more practice before I take up street sketching for a living. :D

    First drawing on the iPad Air. It started as a random doodle while listening to a podcast. Done with the Sketch Club app.

    Thanks. I'll probably get bored and slack off soon, but I'm enjoying myself for now.

    Brrrr..., which is pretty much what's happening here too; though probably not quite as much.

    The snow and ice we had yesterday are almost gone.
