The Grinch and Max

Hello Friends,

It’s hard to believe it is almost Christmas.  The other night my husband and I watched the original cartoon version of Dr. Seuss’s “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” voiced by none other than Boris Karloff.  It has always been one of my favorites from childhood.  My dad loved it, and I can still hear his voice in my head saying certain parts of it.

So I decided to try and sketch them.  The Grinch looks a little weird, but I like how Max turned out.  It is a very rough and quick sketch,  and I had to pause the VIDEO TAPE!!  We haven’t gotten this on DVD or Blue-ray yet!  Ha, ha.  😉

Anyway, this has been a strange holiday season.  We have had a few things happen to our car.  The latest one yesterday was that a ladder fell off the back of a P.G.&E. truck that was driving toward us on the highway when we were on our way to town.  It slid into our lane and my husband could NOT avoid hitting it.  Fortunately, it only ruined the left front tire.  Then when he went to change the tire, he found that our spare was flat.  So we had to call a friend to come and bring us something to pump our tire up so we could get to town and buy new tires.  The front ones needed replacing anyway, so we got two new front ones and a new spare.  Hopefully, that will be the last of the unexpected car expenses this year!  We had to have an expensive part replaced a few weeks ago, too.  Whew!  My husband is telling people we were “torpedoed by a ladder.”  At least we didn’t wreck or get hurt which is a lot to be thankful for.  It also happened on a dry sunny day which was good, too.

Well, I am busy reading a lot and trying to come up with a character sketch for my next assignment.  So that is what I’ve been working on lately.  In the evenings we watch a little t.v. so that’s how the Grinch and Max came about.  I have started on an elephant mom and baby drawing, but probably won’t get back to it for awhile.  I don’t know if I will have anything very “Christmasy” to post by Monday, so just in case, have a very Merry Christmas everyone!

God bless you all.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug!  🙂

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)

  2. I’m happy you guys weren’t hurt..that’s so dangerous. I once had a wheel barrel fall off a trailer in front of us on a crazy, busy interstate. God was watching over us that day. Love the Grinch! Merry Christmas! xo

  3. You were very lucky, Patsy and I think I’d be calling PG&E to have the cost of the tire covered. One of their drivers will have to report missing a ladder. Cute drawing of Max and the Grinch. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy 2018. It’s got to get better. 🙂 M

  4. Cute picture, and well done! What a time you’ve had with your tires and torpedoes. Didn’t the truck stop when he lost his ladder? I hope he paid your expenses. At least no one was hurt, except in the wallet. Have a good Christmas and we’ll see you on the blogs in the new year.
