Puppy Puzzle

5″ x 7″ Acrylic on Wooden Puzzle

I think this puzzle will probably get something else.  Remember when I said that about the Innocent Cat?    he he  That cat became quite a hit on facebook.

I had the most amazing flight last night!  I did a bunch of really good landings and I feel a solo coming.    Then this morning I got word that I am the official sign company for Carlton Landing.  I am thrilled about that!  It is a wonderful opportunity and I am very blessed!  Whoo-Hoo!!

I love this big wonderful life!!! 🙂

In looking for a biography on John Wooden, I discovered that he was an amazing person with a long, rich history.  All of the biographies were really long, so please click on the links here for more info.  He said some incredible things in his life, such as:

“Be true to yourself.
Make each day your masterpiece.
Help others.
Drink deeply from good books.
Make friendship a fine art.
Build a shelter against a rainy day.
Pray for guidance and give thanks for your blessings every day.”
John Robert Wooden

      Thanks, Leslie! The puppy may still get embellished some. I just can’t leave well enough alone sometimes. 🙂

      I’ve been landing for a while, but my instructor is liking them much better lately. They are so hard to get just right.

      Thanks, Carol! You should make some puzzles for your nieces and nephews. You can buy the blank puzzles at hobby stores. I sand the edges of the pieces before I paint them, so they come apart easier. (I learned that the hard way, last time I made some.) 🙂
