Stay tuned Sunday for the answer….
I’ve been working on a Pen tablet, shown below. I wanted to try my hand at illustrating a short story I’ve written. The journey began with playing around on the Pen Tablet and wound up drawing a sort of monster which I ran a naming contest with prizes to be won.
The winner was a sweet young lady who gave my monster the name, ” Burger King.”
So, I brought in my finished picture to Sketch Book Pro and gave him a whopper hamburger to hold and of course the golden crown. I took the file into a printing shop and had a few prints made and sent to her a copy for her room. She was so excited to have been chosen in the draw that I just had to give to this winner a little bit extra. It makes me so happy to bring smiles to others and my goal is to never fail in this quest of mine. I take it very seriously and let life guide me to where I need to deliver the blue bird of happiness…
So, without further adieu here is Part One with my own illustrations done with the Pen Tablet in the program called, SketchBook Pro. I hope you enjoy the short story and the illustrations as much as I have creating them. I will release each part of the story, The Weary Traveler every Friday! So, stay tuned and I know you’ll be glad you did….
The Weary Traveler

I was born on January 1, 2007 into an already crowded family of many. The exact number is unimportant at this time. In a few short months I will celebrate my 8th birthday, but already I’m feeling twice my age.
Since, my conception I’ve never left my home of Independence, Kentucky. But, my days were numbered living in the quaint city of Independence.
I am about to begin an adventure traveling clear across this country of ours to reside in another country far away from the only family I knew. The hardships that would haunt me during my travels were unknown to me in the beginning, but became clear to me after leaving the city of my conception, where I always felt safe and sound after hearing our local fire trucks speeding down the road with the sirens blazing to rescue someone or save a building in dire need of help.
To be continued next Friday, so stay tuned for Part Two….
Wilson the coconut has been wanting me to make this post for a few day now. So, sit back and watch my YouTube Video… Many Thanks….
Apple, Cinnamon, Coconut Coffee Cake ~ Fall gives us a bounty harvest of fresh red apples and nothings better than to make a coffee cake with the richness of sour cream, cinnamon and sweet coconut.
Braised Chicken with onions and oven baked Polenta ~ You will see me post a lot of chicken on here because I can’t eat very much beef, or fish. So, I have become quite good at preparing dinner using chicken in many different ways. Enjoy the ride and the slideshow…
Beef & Orange Stir-fry ~ I love making stir fry of all types. It’s such a fast and easy meal providing your family with a host of vegetables that are sure to delight anyone who’s hungry….
African Chicken & Rice Casserole ~ Sometimes you just need an easy no fuss meal to warm your body and enlighten your mind on a rainy Fall day…
There is another sky,
Ever serene and fair,
And there is another sunshine,
Though it be darkness there;
Never mind faded forests, Austin,
Never mind silent fields-
Here is a little forest,
Whose leaf is ever green;
Here is a brighter garden,
In its unfading flowers
I hear the bright bee hum;
Prithee, my brother,
Into my garden come!
This time of year is a resting period for the grass and the soil underneath. It’s a time to slow down almost to a pause for the long winter ahead. Tucked away underneath a bed of leaves the soil is replenished by the goodness the blanket of leaves provides….
