A Senior Moment!

A Senior Moment!…

All of you who have dealings with the banking system will understand this ….A SENIOR MOMENT – An elderly lady actually wrote this letter to her bank. The bank manager thought it amusing enough to have it published in The Times and this newspaper thanks him most sincerely.

Dear Sir,

I am writing to thank you for bouncing my cheque with which I endeavoured to pay my plumber last month. By my calculations, three ‘nanoseconds’ must have elapsed between his presenting the cheque and the arrival in my account of the funds needed to honour it. I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly deposit of my Pension, an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only thirty eight years. You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity, and also for debiting m

AUSTRALIAN COURT DOCKET 12659

AUSTRALIAN COURT DOCKET 12659 -
A lady about 8 months pregnant got on a bus.
She noticed the man opposite her was smiling at her.
She immediately moved to another seat.
This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again.
The man seemed more amused.
When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing,
She complained to the driver and he had the man arrested.…

Dear Dogs and Cats:

Dear Dogs and Cats:

The dishes with the paw prints are yours and contain your food. The other dishes are mine and contain my food. Placing a paw print in the middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the slightest.

I found this very interesting.
So I would like to share

I would like to make a few suggestions for living a happier life as an artist, without the chains of criticism riding up one’s shorts and ruining one’s life adventure. Here are a few of my ideas:

ONE: The best “criticism” is NO CRITICISM. The best encouragement of fellow artists in understanding their work is when they have done something right, not what they have done wrong. Learning is experimental by nature. Our brains just keeps plugging away at all possible outcomes until something rings true to our internal comparator system that we have reached the right result. So much of art is in being able to visualize the “right outcome” before beginning the work. When artists have expressed feeling through their artwork, the recipie
