This is my space and I'm learning how to use this website so don't come in here.
It's sort of like I'm getting dressed for a performance.
Okay then. You can stay. But I'm not here to entertain you, so what you see may not be very interesting.
Okay. Here goes:
That image encompasses an Paint program area about 500 x 700. That's an area in which I am comfortable drawing.
I like it because with the white background, the image appears to be drawn right on this page.
So, I can, like, tell a story, load up an image and there's a real flow to it.
Okay- so let's talk about me. I mean, after all, that's why I'm here. You're here because you have voyeuristic tendencies and wish to be entertained. You want to feel good.
I'm okay with that. But just remember: You didn't pay to come in here and I don't owe you anything.
Wendy Kraminer said in her book, I'm Dysfunctional, You're Dysfunctional that there are two things everybody likes to do and one of them is talking about themselves. Yep- EVERYBODY likes to talk about themselves.
Want to know what the second thing that everybody likes to do? Read the book and find out.
I think I've got a copy of it around here somewhere. Let me see...
Oh yeah! Here it is:
You can barrow it, but just make sure you bring it back. It's like one of my mentors said, "All my best books are on somebody else's shelf". Don't let this be one of them.
Anyway, back to me:
You may be wondering why I call myself Davey Do.
Well, it's none of your business.
Just kidding. I'm going to tell you.
One windy day, Friday March 31, 2006 to be exact, I was riding my single speed bicycle on a 34 mile round trip and it was so windy...
It was so windy, it blew all the duct tape off of my '85 Toyota pickup truck and I thought the Tin Man had been eviscerated in my driveway!
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
No. Really, it was so windy that I thought of the animated featurette, "Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day" and I asked Myself, "Self", I said, "What would you call yourself if you were starring in an animated featurette about a fat stuffed bear riding a bicycle on a windy day?"
And Myself said
because, see, my first name is Dave and the first two letters of my last name is Do. So I call myself Davey Do. I know the picture says "Davey the Do", but I lost the the in my divorce the following year.
The picture is also not accurate in that the wind was blowing from the west and not the east as shown, but I've got poetic license, you know?
What?! You don't believe that I have a poetic license?!
It's fun playing on these pages.I can put whatever I want (within appropriate boundaries, of course) on these pages and nobody can stop me!
If I wanted to, I could post a picture of Abraham Lincoln and me saying hello to each other in front of the White House in 1863 on this page!
Boy! I'd like to hear the rest of that conversation!
Wait a minute!
No one is going to believe that the honorable President Abraham Lincoln and I were saying hello in front of the White House in 1863!
The photograph is in color!
Well, color photography was, as you might say,"invented" in 1861 but did not gain popularity until 1935 , but even then, you know?
Anyway, here's the actual photo of Abe and me saying hello to each other in front of the White House in 1863:
Well, I'm glad that clears that up.
Edgar Cayce said something along the lines of "Overcome fear by seeing the ridiculous yet funny side of every situation".
Hmm... the "funny side of every situation". That's not an easy thing to do. We believe that we need to react sadly appropriate to situations which affect people's feelings out of respect for them as human beings.
Yet, when we are the ones experiencing the trials and tribulations, it is we who get to say how we will deal with the emotional pain. If we choose to "find the ridiculous yet funny side" of a stressful situation in order to work through it, so be it.
Abraham Lincoln was a great man, to say the least. His assassination was a terrible blow to a nation already binding its wounds. A dark time indeed. Yet toady, we can find some dark humor in that situation: "Other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how was the play?" of "Abe said, 'I need that like a hole in the head!" And so on.
John Kennedy was assassinated when I was 6 years old and it was a terrible blow to the people of my generation and the generation before me. I was challenged in finding anything "funny" about Kennedy's assassination, but wanted to give it a try.
This is the ridiculous 'toon I came up with:
This is a work in progress and this is not the cartoon to which I was referring.
Oh well. I want to go on to other things anyway. Like advertising this site. Belinda's daughter's neighbor dog's owner says that she will print up bumper stickers for me. All I have to come up with is a design.
It could be simple bumper sticker with basic information:
Or we might add a little graphic art to it:
Maybe the "22" could be symbolized with a the hand sign for benediction:
A little saying might draw some attention:
Maybe some victory or peace hand signs:
"With a bullet" sort of means rising in popularity:
Or we could go completely radical:
Oh- here's another one!
