the right to bear arms and my latest painting

The oldest two sons have discovered you can modify
Nerf guns to shoot farther and harder. Which kind
of negates the whole "it's only foam" thing, but
then, they are teenagers.

(See the hairy one on the left? He got up early,
went and voted, came home to eat waffles, and then
wanted to borrow my soldering gun to do who-knows-
what-else to said guns, all before scooting off
for a day at college.)

ANYWAY, here they are, preparing for the big dart gun
fight at church Friday night. Yep, at church. Hey,
a buncha teenagers shooting each other with dart guns
at church sure beats what you see them doing on the
evening news . . .

My latest painting! It's the first in a series. This
one is entitled, "The Living Room Ceiling." Next comes
"Wall #1."

And finally, my favorite jeans. Alas, I fear they are
not long for this world. There's just not a whole lot
left holding them together. Which is why you only see
the front view!! ;)

Gotta love a good nerf fight. And for the record, a nerf football will break a window. My son learned the hard way. :)
BTW, I enjoyed my visit here. The title of your blog made me smile.

Thanks for visiting my blog this morning. Yes the choking with a dirty sock still cracks me up. I took a quick look and I am loving your art work especially the vintage look. I will be back.

Wow! What creative sons you have! Can't wait to see how your paint project turns out! That's on my to-do list during Thanksgiving vacation!

I love your new painting-and you so made me smile today! Improving the guns is something my grown husband would love too.

Hey there, Trisha!
I love that your boys are upgrading the nerf shooters- I'm a little afraid to know what (or who) they're going to shoot with them....
Lived-in jeans are awesome. You're just now getting those broke in! LOL
Stop by my place for a visit anytime!
