Inktober 2021 #19 – Loop

Some may not believe it but there was one point in my life when I had tons of bows and hair accessories. Those were dark times. 😆 My family and I were sitting in the living room watching TV. I asked my dad if I could do his hair and he agreed. I didn’t haveContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #19 – Loop”

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 #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 #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”

Inktober 2021 #9 – Pressure

My dad had always taught me to be independent and learn how to do things for myself. He taught me all the basics of vehicle care and maintenance, tire pressure, changing a flat, oil changes, checking fluids, so on and so forth. He said, “Sometimes you might run in to trouble and there won’t beContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #9 – Pressure”

Inktober 2021 #7 – Fan

It was no surprise that I was my dad’s biggest fan and he was mine. I wanted to do everything he did. We were “pals” and we had called each other that since before I can remember. We had a secret handshake and everything. I felt cool when I was with my dad. Maybe itContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #7 – Fan”

Inktober 2021 #3 – Vessel

Vessel was an easy prompt that brought up a lot of memories with my dad. He had his own vessel called The Phish Phinder. We would go out on Lake Erie all the time and go fishing. We would have the usual family competition of who could catch the most fish. It was usually myContinue reading “Inktober 2021 #3 – Vessel”
