    Title:  Barn Dance

    You can follow the directions perfectly and still get lost.

     

    Victoria was not impressed.  She had followed the directions exactly.  She was expecting to arrive at a beautifully renovated and updated old barn at a vineyard.   This was definitely not it.

    As a pair of headlights approached she sincerely hoped it was Michael...

    Thank you purrkat, luci45 and MelanieL

     

    @lucki45 - She is teaching them the proper respect...and the versatility of a good cookware set.

    I pulled it a few days ago and thought 'I can't do this.' But it's almost done. Rendering is another story - I wonder if my RAM and CUDAs can handle it.

  • purrkatpurrkat Posts: 134

    Kismet2012 - Nice feeling of isolation... like maybe Victoria should have stayed in the car and sent Michael a text.

    luci45 - Great action! Good use of cookware.

    I've had the strangest time with my #6, as in "good golly Miss Molly". Shaders that worked in one render, just stopped working in the next render five minutes later. Crazy. It still has technical difficulties, but I'm at the point where - this is as good as it gets. Thank you Murphy. That said...

    HAPPY NEW YEAR!

    Murphy's Law # 9 - "No good dead goes unpunished."

    Luke broke the bucking bronco. He was the Rodeo champion. Heady from his win, he decided to try his luck at the shooting booth. Introducing himself, he offered Jack, free tickets to the next Rodeo in exchange for unlimited target practice. He had just picked up the riffle when someone grabbled his arm, twisting him around.

    He didn't realize how fast she was going, until he tried to catch her. They both went down in a tangle of arms and legs, with an unceremonial thud. The Champion of the Rodeo - taken out by a girl on roller skates, selling balloons.

    Sorry for not paying attention or posting here for a while, but stuff happened IRL the week before christmas that killed my muse, been a slow way back but I'm getting there.
    I lost my beloved dog Viggo, who has been around me everyday for ten and a half years, and that was a very special dog not only to me and my familly but to others as well, even people I don't know, who come forward when I walk with only his litle brother now, asking about him, where he is, what happened.

    And into the Frying Pan!  You got to be really specific when you make a wish.  'Cause anything open to inferpretation WILL be misconstrued.  Tabby wished to be rescued from the shark but neglected to say where she wanted to be rescued to... Someone gave her rescuer a rake for christmas... if you give someone a rake everything starts looking like weeds.  She did get her wish so she shouldn t complain except about the metaphors not being mixed but scrambled!

    Thanks kyoto kid, Chanteur-de-Vent, Linwelly, MelanieL, Karibou for your comments

    Purrkat #3,  Ha!  She doesn t have a father with a shotgun, she s got a tiger!  who undoubtedly knows his intentions.  Well done!
    #4, Close encounters of the 6th kind where you marry an alien?  They ll really have to stop meeting like this!  Good one!
    #5, Leave it to the puppy to be digging up bones!  She truly is shocked.  Nicely done!
    #6, And he picked himself up and asked if she wanted to try it again.  No cowboy would ever complain about getting tangled up with a young woman.  You can see his self assured expression.  Good one!

    Kismet2012 #3,  Don t I know it!  And your kid brother could have re gifted it when you weren t looking.  Well done!
    #4,  A fixer upper! Sure hope she s got plenty of gas!  Whatever s coming around the bend just might be something she d just as soon do without.  The main illumination from the headlights gives it that forlorn atmosphere. Nice one!

    Chanteur-de-Vent #1,   “What you gonna do with a cowboy when he starts putting’ on his boots and getting’ gone”  Introduce yourself?  we see him thru her eyes on the morning after.  Nice one!

    Luci45 #5,  I m betting that the dude didn t count on becoming so popular in the new world with the mushrooms he grew on his roof.  Maybe the mushrooms are the inspiration where all the bright color and texuring came from.  Good one!
    #6, Wow!  Those are some psychedelic threads!  I knew a dude who insisted on a beret and cape and he never matched this guy.  Nicely done!
    #7  Ah! this is the point where santa gets turned into a mouse!  unless he has a nimbus 2016 in his bag of goodies.  Another great one!
    #8   Ha!  Their watch heron let them down and fell asleep on the job.  nice action and expressions!
    #9  I d hate to have their air conditioning and heating bills.  those cathedral ceilings and all that glass would just leak heat like crazy.  This one is truly magnificent with all the depth and roominess.  WR Hearst eat your heart out!

    Linwelly #2, in a star wars bar she s lucky to pick up something of her own species.  at least she ll have their sympathy.  Good one!
    #3,  Next time they ll not let her so close to the paintings. those sleeves really whip it!  Well done!

    MelanieL #1, He simply must furnish glass slippers for his date… and she doesn t look too shabby the way she’s dressed now!  Nice one!

    Karibou #2,  when Glinda heard that they d be serving sandwiches she knew she just had to crash!  Ha!  that is a good place to keep the terminally cheerful!  Well done!

    Barbult #1  not to mention the humidity!  sometimes we all wish we had a fountain to pour cooling fluids.  Good one!

    Ha ken! They ve busted santa on christmas eve again!  Nice one!!

    Sorry to hear about your dog, Totte

    What’s the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

    Light Lunch - Yue found the perfect new home. A cozy, dry, cave tucked inside a mountain top. It's grassy, roof perched over the valley offered a spectacular view and would make a delightful patio. After spending the morning diligently setting it up, by noon, he was ready to try it out with a light lunch. He'd just sat down and pulled his boots off, all ready to put his feet up, when Drake the neighborhood dragon appeared. Also with a light lunch in mind... him. Now he would need to make a run for it, ditch Drake at the lake and then swing back.

    I ve changed the image... but i think all i really needed to do is change the yellow color to white... and include in the caption that he s spraying his sister with the air jets from the sauna.  just a matter more of perception than substance.

    Marketing Surveys

    Emily Litella just couldn t understand it.  She heard of a marketing survey that found that a large number of men wanted a twelve inch piano player.  So she stocked up her stand at the Paragon Swap Meet.  But not a single customer.  What could it be?  Murphy says that all marketing surveys should be taken with a grain of salt, that their findings vary on the actual wording of the questions.
