Which came first – the chicken or the egg? And by asking that question, I claim this as my response to the Doodlewash prompt: Egg

Did you know that when hens ‘talk’ to their unhatched chicks, the chicks peep back?

Dalmatian Dud- Postcards for the Lunch Bag


Looking for the ‘More Tangle Starts’ by Alice Hendon giveaway. Go to this post for details.

Although the Dalmatian is considered a black and white dog by many, it does come with other colored spots. Only black and liver (brown) are accepted for show, but they also come in lemon, blue, brindle, or tricolor spots.

I really didn’t want to post this painting. It’s one of those where I fought with the paint from the moment I started.

This blank postcard lying under papers, for who knows how long, and thought ah! I’ll just use this. Even though the rough texture wasn’t really right for a smooth coated dalmatian. And the paint didn’t want to stick, so there was obviously something on the card. Eh. It got done, lol.
