OOOOOOHH! It's summertime... time for a vacation! But where to go? For the lucky among us the possibilities are endless. How about the briny seaside?

Or the old world... the prosaic countryside?

Or perhaps the viridescent woodlands...

Or the bone dry, wizened desert? Oh what the heck! Are we not the fortunate ones, the affluent, the prosperous chosen few? Let us avail ourselves of all of the Earths great bounty and do it all this summer! You only live once, is that not the truth?

It's a beautiful, searing, blistering, sweltering, torrid summer day, and we are taking the day off. See you tomorrow!

Hi... it's my birthday! Actually it's my birthday every day, so Happy Birthday to me! You may think life is a real gas when every day is your birthday, but the truth is it get's kinda old after a few years. Friends and family come to resent the daily obligation of gifting and well wishing, and who can blame them? Not me! I never asked for this, but it's my lot in life and I try to make the best of it.

All we can do is graciously accept the life we were born into and try to get along. So, Happy Birthday to me, and if it happens to be your birthday, then Happy Birthday to you to!

Denise has planned a romantic picnic for two, but the object of her desire is late.

As time continues to slip by and the shadows lengthen, Denise becomes more and more despondent. Lover man, oh where can you be?

How sad it is to see Denise give up hope and give in to despair. It is all we can do not to turn away.

Oh joy! Oh happy circumstance! Her lover man has not forgotten after all, it was only rush hour traffic that has made him tardy!

It is lovely to see a smile light up Denise's face at long last.

Hi there! I am taking my dog Q-Tip for a walk... to the dog park!

Whenever Q-Tip hears the words, "dog park", she just takes off running!

Along the way we always play a game of hide and seek. I guess you could say it has become our little routine.

Oh, Q-tip, you find me every time!

Here we are at the dog park at long last! This place is great for dogs and their owners. Dog parks are specially designed for man and his best friend, and they provide many comforts.

Such as fresh water, the importance of which should never be underestimated.

The dog park hosts a cornucopia of dogs in many sizes and styles!

And durable seating provides just the thing for the road weary dog owner. Yes sir, Q-Tip and I really enjoy our daily trip to the old dog park!

Tuscany Pacheco is having a little bit of the engine trouble.

Fortunately for him, he knows a thing or two about automobiles.

Unfortunately for him, his knowledge is not coming in handy at the moment. He must face his shortcomings and take her in to the auto shop, and we all know this is going to cost him.

Later in the day the job is done. Tuscany pours a stiff drink and assesses the damage.

In his sightly inebriated state, Tuscany is philosophical. He contemplates the irony of the situation...a crises in transportation has been resolved , but a financial crises has been created. You just can't win!

So how did the blog go yesterday?

Malissa is a wig maker. Her profession is the essence of fabulous, but it is also tedious hard work.

Each new wig design requires much experimentation. Malissa must allow her imagination to range freely, then recognize the exact moment to pull back on the reigns and bring discipline to bear on the work.

It has taken her many years to find the correct balance between creativity and control. She knows she must be willing to undo hours of hard work if the design is not working out.

Here we see Malissa return to a cleaner, simpler design after considering a much more complicated pallet.

Finally the wig is ready to be tried on. This is an important moment in the design process... this is the crucial point at which she knows for sure if she is on the right track or not.

Oh yes, we do believe she is on the right track. Don't you agree?
