I’m so sorry! I sort of fell off the blog-sphere, but think I’m almost ready to be back!
Thanks for all the emails/phone calls! We’re all doing fine, but there have been more than a few “adventures” — some good, some bad and lots of slipping on banana peels and the like — but, such is life. …And, it IS grand! One just has to learn to get back up with some grace and dignity. I’ve got that on my “To Do” list!
(me and the glam Ing on the 4th of July!)

Anyway, I was tag’d a while back by Cool Old Cheeser and I will get that written and posted soon! However, I wanted to drop a quick post so no one thinks I have fallen and not been able to get back up! I think the following pictures will pretty much speak for themselves. (or, at least I hope so because I doubt I will be providing much in the way of descriptors) (please note: these two individuals are expressing The Line as originally created by Ms. Joan Crawford. …this is a double line photo — which is illegal in 12 states! don’t try this one at home, kids!)

(pardon the mess — we’re still figuring out the new apartment, but it is taking shape! Love being back in GayTown!)

(me and M. J do a killer line in this photo! …never mess with the line! …simply work around it!)

(B talked me into putting up a few of my collages — these are currently in our bedroom. …don’t make fun of them!)
…and this is Little Bagel and her “best bud” — The Empress Minx! They seem to have really, uh, bonded.

love and kisses,

    Yay you’re back! Don’t worry about the place. I’ve been in my house for almost three months and I have one picture up so far. So much to do, so little time!

    Love n’ kisses back to you Matty!

  5. Pants replied:

    Hooray! You’re back!

    I’m loving The Line. And your collages! LOVE ‘EM!

  6. Old Cheeser replied:

    Thank the lord you are alive after all, Mister Man!!

    I hope there were more good then bad adventures.

    And I am LOVING your new apartment – very classy looking with all those pictures and books! I am sure it’s a big improvement on living in Da Oakland Hood?? (Mind you your pad there was nice, but you know what I mean). Well done and thank you for the tour!

    And like Pants, I’m LOVING your collages even more – Star is Born and Eyes of Laura Mars – very different and unusual – you are SO creative and clever, Matty. I wish I could put up something like that in our flat, problem is, my husband won’t let me (humph!)

    Is that guy with the hooded blue top a friend of Dorothy by any chance?

    Good to have you back with us.

    OC xx

    Wow! New digs! Smiling faces! A healthy looking Matty! I’m so happy by this outcome!

  9. hot-lunch replied:

    i never knew that was called The Line!! i learn so much from ur blog! welcome back and no rush at all!

  10. matty03 replied:

    Steve! Yes! I’m still kicking! …up a storm!

    Scarlet Hip! Moving is such a pain, but unpacking is even more so! I think we have 4 boxes but half of our art is up so we will get there! Ugh! lol! …what picture did you hang?

  11. matty03 replied:

    Gina! Oh, you made my day!!! Um, I am going to bet you took a closer look at my Little Bagel and Minx? I started to crop it more, but I like the light coming in through our windows creating the light and darks of shadows. It is interesting to watch Bagel learn how to socialize with Minx. Minx is now the highlight of her day — she enjoys visiting/playing with Minx more than her walks!

  12. matty03 replied:

    Pants! Thank you! I get embarrassed by my collages but B wanted some up so I picked out my 3 faves. ugh!

    Cool Old Cheeser! Wow! Thanks — two people seem to like my silly collages! lol! Tell your man to let you hang some of what you want! We are really liking this place a great deal, too. But the shrinkage in space size is a challenge! …but, we seem to be fitting! Oh, and, yes, my new pal is a very close friend of Dorothy! The Line!

  13. matty03 replied:

    Ing!!!! Hey, you owe me a phone call missy! I’ve been told I give some things well but never The Line! Thanks! Tho, I think you and M. J do a much better job with it! …you give better Line!

    Pakipoptart! Thanks! Don’t close your blog! No!

    Hot Lunch! Big hug and kisses to you!

    and alive and kicking.
    missed you tons.

  15. matty03 replied:

    Walter!! I miss you, too!! Tried to call you last week and left you a voice mail! …I think the bitch is almost back, but then I slip a bit and have to hold on to the trunk of tree. But, I am most definitely kicking a bit!!

  16. Walter Briski, Jr. replied:

    don’t you there missy.
    there is too much sadness around.
    keep it tight.
    and happy.
    i love you.
