Inktober Day 6 - Husky and Hunting

We were out on the porch this morning where I sketched for Scavenger Hunt 605, then came in to the dining table for Inktober Day 6.

Inktober, Day 6 - husky.  I thought of our great grandson number 2, Luke.  He turned 2  and is sooooo cute ...  and husky!

#inktober  #inktober2019

I had my feet propped up and realized one of the items for Scavenger Hunt 605  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1471767  was "something you wear on your feet".  Appropriate for the day.


Number 3, something you wear on your feet - boot for my sprained tendon.  Hopefully I will get it off tomorrow.  It is gray, but looks sort of mauve here.  ??  I had a cast on my foot back in 1978.  What a difference technology has made.  I think the cast was on for 6 weeks and was miserable.  They did have a plastic mesh one so I could shower and swim, but it didn't come off at night for sleeping and itched like crazy.  This one comes off and I can wear a sock with it -- no itching.

It will be a lazy Sunday here.  The weather has been nice in the mornings for porch sitting, but by 10 or so has been in the nineties.  Maybe today it will just go to 89 degrees!

There is a bar/cafe on 1441 on the way to town.  The building and some sort of restaurant has been there for years, before we lived in Bastrop, so pre 1997.  It was a steak restaurant in those days and was good food but smoking allowed so we didn't eat there more than once.  Then it was run by our friend Brenda.  She had good food and no smoking in the restaurant part, but the smoke lingered so we didn't eat there but a couple of times.  Before we went to New Mexico,  it was bought and opened as a restaurant bar with a new name.  We didn't try it.  When we got back it had changed again with a new name and nice cleaned up paint job on the outside.  Yay!  So we went....  Opened the door and it was dark and smokey.  Looks like a bar, pool hall, now.  So we went to Schlotsky's.  Sigh.....

Luke is so cute...love the boots he is wearing. Sorry to hear you were injured, but at least it isn't uncomfortable like the old casts were. Hope it comes off soon. That restaurant sounds like it has bad history...

Joan, thanks. Luke is amazing, photos of his birthday were fun.
Ankle is healing, I hurt it before we went to NM and ignored it. Shouldn't have. I don't know why people keep trying the same stuff in the same place that hasn't worked.

i am so glad smoking is not allowed in bars/restaurants, can't breathe around anyone who smokes

hopefully you get that boot off soon, much better than a cast but still a PITA to wear

Jennifer Rose, I think in Texas, the no smoking is voted on by town. This place is in the county so no State law to cover it. Always a surprise to walk in a place that still has smoking. Not common anymore.
Have to have the boot a few more weeks. Can take it off at night or when I'm sitting with my feet up. So different than the old casts for sure.

I think you should have drawn your toes wiggling around in the boot to make it more realistic :)
I'm so ready for cooler weather. Maybe tomorrow!
I don't like dark and smoky either.

Jo Castillo said...

Bag Blog, Ha. We had 69 the other morning and the high was supposed to be 85. Well, it got to 96! No hope in sight. Over 90 since we got home. Maybe tomorrow is right.
