Inktober 2021 #22 – Open

I instantly knew what I was going to do for the prompt Open. I have a picture on my wall in my studio of my dad and I participating in my 4-H groups Open Fun Show. My 4-H group put on an Open Fun Show every year. It was called an Open Show because anyoneContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #22 – Open”

Inktober 2021 #18 – Moon

It was a dark and stormy Halloween night. The moon was full and the ghouls howled down the streets. Just kidding. It was dark but it wasn’t storming. It was just really, really cold though. And the ghouls howling was more like the wind blasting past you and making your eyes water. I don’t evenContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #18 – Moon”

Inktober 2021 #17 – Collide

Now this is an interesting story. It’s one that I will never forget. I was pretty young. My dad and I went trail riding together. Usually, it was a group of us going or at a minimum it would be me, my mom and my dad. But for some reason this day, it was justContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #17 – Collide”

Inktober 2021 #16 – Compass

I had a lot of thoughts pop in my head when I saw the word compass. The first thing I thought of was the compass on my dad’s boat. We took the boat out on Lake Erie often. It was one of my favorite things to do with my family. We would go fishing andContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #16 – Compass”

Inktober 2021 #15 – Helmet

My dad was always a stickler about safety. …Always wear your seatbelt, always be cautious around power tools, never look at the light from the welder and always wear your helmet! Thanks to my parents, I was lucky enough to have a horse as a kid and compete in horse shows for 4-H and PonyContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #15 – Helmet”

Inktober 2021 #14 – Tick

Ticks are pretty gross. I’ve become very familiar with ticks. My entire life I have been outdoors, in the woods, in the fields, in the flower beds. When I was younger, my dad and I would walk through the fields and pastures a lot together which is when he taught me about ticks. I rememberContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #14 – Tick”

Inktober 2021 #13 – Roof

My dad was a handyman. He was especially good at woodworking but he was a welder for Jeep for over 20 years so he was a good metal worker too. I was always amazed by what he could make. He always had projects going on and was very meticulous with his work. He wasn’t justContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #13 – Roof”

Inktober 2021 #12 – Stuck

Just a short but sweet entry today. I’ve shared in previous posts how my dad and I were “pals” when I was young. I stuck to his side like a bad rash! Everything he did, I wanted to do too! This prompt made me think of a picture of us together that my mom took.Continue reading “Inktober 2021 #12 – Stuck”

Inktober 2021 #11 – Sour

The eleventh prompt for Inktober is “Sour” and is probably going to be my personal favorite. Unfortunately for my dad, he was the one left sour! My mom, dad and I had just sat down to dinner with our own generous helpings of hot spaghetti! We were hungry and just about ready to take ourContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #11 – Sour”

Inktober 2021 #10 – Pick

I had no idea what I was going to do for pick. This might be a bit of a stretch but just roll with it. I have a particular memory of going to the auction with my dad so I’m squeezing it in here because he let me pick whatever I wanted and we wouldContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #10 – Pick”
