Hunting at Home

It is hard to find time to sketch during baseball season, or that is what I tell myself.  This morning I got out the big book and found three small items to sketch here at home.

For Scavenger Hunt 533

Number 7 toy - a Happy Meal toy from McDonald's.  We hadn't been there in ages and went after a game.  There are coupons on the back of our tickets for free french fries and we forgot to use them.  I was hungry, but didn't want a big burger,  so had a Happy Meal.  It was pretty good - considering...  the toy is silly.  The rabbit sits on the stand, you turn the rabbit, then push one of the buttons and the rabbit "jumps" out and you try to catch it.  It jumps about 3 inches so you have to  be fast.
Number 8 hand tool - small needle nose pliers
Number 9 keys on a ring - Gene's, I've sketched mine many times.  That little knife comes in handy.  We use the scissors a lot.

The Longhorns won the first game against the Stanford Cardinal 8 - 6 last night.  It was a good game with good pitching and a couple of home runs.  One down, three to go.  A bit chilly and will probably be so again today with temps near 60 at game time.  Always cooler in the stands.  Tomorrow is supposed to be in the high 80s .. what?  I'll let you know.

80 tomorrow???? I hope you realize how envious I am of where you live. Right now it's 36and tomorrow will be 36!!!!! But NO snow so I'm happy!! Love Your little sketches, Jo......

A happy meal sounds just awful. Maybe the toy made it worth it.

Jo Castillo said...

hmuxo, funny. It will be back normal tomorrow in the low 60s. Don't know what's up for today at 80. You won't be envious when we are at 100 degrees with 90% humidity! That is why we go to the mountains.

Lou, the happy meal wasn't too bad. By saying we hadn't been there in ages .. it had been 40 years probably! We went again last night for our free french fries. Probably the last time for another "ages".

Nice sketches...I guess the Happy Meal fortified you enough to give you energy to sketch. Every once in a while I do stop at McD's...their fries are my favorite thing on the menu...but I avoid having them. :)

Joan, I know what you mean. We get "free" fries from our baseball tickets. We will not go unless we are desparate. Hard to find a place open after 930 - 10 p.m. otherwise. The last few years the coupons were for Taco Bell, we never used them. :-)
