My Neighbors Mailbox

Busy busy busy
I pass by a neighbor's mailbox that at certain times of the year is nearly overwhelmed by the bougainvillea bush. A bougainvillea has super sharp thorns so I kinda wince just looking at it while admiring it at the same time.

I just recently finished reading Rod Stewart's autobiography. Wow. Just as I was wrapping that up, I watched the "rockumentary" about the Eagles. It's called "The History of the Eagles" and after watching that and reading Rod Stewart talk about his life I felt like I'd been whisked back in time to the 70's and 80's, trashing hotel rooms, dating super models and starlets, and experiencing a lot of drugs and alcohol while wearing a lot of leather with fringes and other ridiculous finery. Or... not wearing so much.

Cheers all! God's peaceful easy feeling.


  1. Gorgeous painting Karen!! Love the bougainvillea in all its glory!
    Pop star's certainly seem to have lived by their own rules back then, it is definitely fascinating reading. : )

  2. A wonderful painting, the most beautiful mailbox I have ever seen :-) Great work on the Bougainvillea and the stones.

  3. Wow, beautiful Karen! That's a gorgeous mailbox and you made it into a beautiful painting!
