    Interesting about calling attention to the judges. One would think that with all the electronic devices they can replay if a call is challenged, there would be less of skewing the results to favor their favorite competitor or what have you.

    They have had so many technological devices rigged in the sports they can to avoid bad calls. I tripped over a video on YouTube about famous cheaters in the history of the Olympics and there was one in Fencing where they had an electronic sensor measuring for contact between the tip of the foil (? the rapier thingy) and the body/head of the opponent. Apparently it has to be solid enough of a strike to make it count as a point. Well, the famous cheater in Fencing rigged his foil to jump to read as a contact without actual contact happening. Needless to say, he was caught or he wouldn't have made it into that YouTube video. My guess in olden days he would have filled the slot of the villain. Definitely would have sported a handlebar mustachio and would sneer and envy everything he saw.

    I suppose that so long as there are winners and losers, there will be cheating. Sort of reflects life in general.

    Looks like yer sketch is just more Watteau under the bridge, oh aye. . .

    Porridge is it? Me mum used to slip my dachshund's pills/tablets into a wad o' liverwurst. So might ye be doing somethin' similar with yer porridge and all yer tablets, matey? Hey, I like porridge just fine. Don't eat much of it though cause I rarely do breakfast. Might have some instant kind for a snack at most. But I do like it, especially the kind where you can feel the oats and less mushy.

    So you doin' yer barrels of tablets still?

    Well, keep hammerin' them judges to keep 'em honest in the eyes of the world.

    Yeah, out here they used to grow produce--lettuce and broccoli and avocados. Now with the drought and fires we have a bumper crop of charcoal - which is okay if you're an artist, I suppose. Next year I think I'll plant me some conte crayons. They thrive in the dry heat. Bloody 'ell, mate.

    It's so hot and dry the trees have been dying all over. I just heard from one of the chaps from Los Angeles Unified Schools (which covers the vast area of Los Angeles County) who said that on their properties about a quarter of their trees have taken a hit. I've already lost about 5 trees on my property alone.

    Anyway, your drawings are really good. You have the Watteau vibe. You're using about the same amount of marks and you're seeing the forms really well.

    ˇVaya con all the Watteau ye can carry, cause it's getting pretty dry here!

    Yeah, well the plot thins. . . like my hair.

    I think it's about a third of an acre. It's a decent size for a yard, but there were a fair number of trees on it. Originally, before I lived here, I think they were planted to keep the hillside from slipping, and shade and decoration I imagine as well. Sickens me to watch them dying. Have to water them heavily since the hillside is so dry. And that's getting pretty pricey with the water shortages and lack of rain.
