Pen and Ink...and maybe some paint

Today's 1" calendar illustration...

This adventure actually began at 10 p.m. last night. As I settled down in my beddy-bye I smelled a distinct...stink. Oh no, there must be a skunk nearby! The smell didn't dissipate, so after a while I checked outside. Couldn't smell a thing outside. It's only inside. Maybe it's not a skunk. Maybe it's...propane! So, this girl called the gas company which then dispatched one of their intrepid guys with a doohickey to check for gas leaks. He couldn't find anything wrong with the gas, but he did
 discover an opening in my trailer skirting large enough to admit one small skunk. The stench of skunk billowed from the small opening. It was after midnight before I decided to try to get some sleep in my still stinky house, so it qualified for my Saturday picture.

It's still kind of stinky in here tonight after work. I hope the little rat has moved on, but apparently something provoked it to spray underneath my house. Who knows how long that will take to wear off!

Hope you're all having a better smelling evening than I am.  :)

Shalom for now!


  1. I hope the skunk doesn't get too comfortable under there. I like your animal calendar.

  2. Oh No! I've heard the skunk's are very stinky. Love your calender entry.

  3. Makes a great picture and story for your calendar, but the thought of it gives me shivers up my back, so I really feel for you.

  4. Forgot to say, I love the horse sketch in your header picture.

  5. Oh no! I love your calendar! You're good at skunks.

  6. i have seen skunks in our neighborhood after dark. i'm always afraid the dog will startle one and get sprayed!!

    hope the skunk isn't taking up permanent residence under your house!!


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
