Like that jacket the neighbours have up? They're too young to have been there. Kind of a weird thing to sell, don't you think? Kind of like all the kids wandering around in Che shirts, and they have NO IDEA who he was.
Now...how about this?
Passen cinc minutes de dos quarts de tres
Falten cinc minutes pera un quart do cinc
This is how they tell time here...OMG
With an extra five minutes it is two quarters to three, or 2:35
Missing five minutes for one quarter to five, or 4:10
It is a wonder I ever get anywhere...the best I ever heard on the radio was...an extra five minutes for two quarters to six plus one...as in...5:36.
Youngest is trying to learn time in Catalan and the system is outrageous....though in some ways more logical than our quarter past quarter two as you may realise if you have tried to explain it to a child recently...either way, it's hard.
And get a load of this....Theresa was right...there is urea, as in PEE in this. That said, it's working. Do I care? NO.
And check this out, the photo isn't the best, but look who we saw in the mountain? That's right a wild boar, isn't he enormous?
Now I have to confess, he is caged in someone's yard, I'm not sure why, but he has apparently been there for about eight years. Weird.
Here's two things I've been working on as well, this is a study for a part of another painting...
And this is a different painting as well...it isn't finished yet obviously.
It is also a little strange, but he looks pretty cheerful...
