Fox Kits and Friends With Sugar

4/28/14 Monday in Wilmington, OH (Wilmington-TT)

We slept in, after all the rain last night plus we’re on Eastern time now. It kept raining through much of the morning so we got on our computers. I caught up with the blog posts. After lunch we got our grocery shopping done in Wilmington. When we returned, as we entered the campground we got a great view of the 2 little fox kits who are living in a culvert near their Welcome sign.

We had bought a 2 liter bottle of 7-Up (for our stink bug trap) and brought it over to Karen/Sherie’s to share while we played cards all afternoon. Thus we had a great time with our friends, drinking sugar the whole time.

We split for supper and got together for the evening. This time we played cards while watching “Dancing With The Stars” and drinking adult beverages. Yours truly and Karen had mudslides (I had two which was 1 too many) while John and Sherie enjoyed 7-Up with Rum.

Let’s just say that by the time 10 pm hit I was pretty under the weather so John drove us home (down the road in the campground) in the rain. It had started raining at 9 pm and was pouring down by 10 pm.

We went to bed after I drank some water to stave off any dehydration from the alcohol…


About Patricia Elser

I've always loved the loose, flowing, transparent look of watercolors, of Chinese paintings and their calligraphy, but alas, no watercolor classes were available when I was in school, so that interest remained buried until my children were grown. Even then, I was afraid that I couldn't really paint, so upon my sister's advice, I actually started to take classes. I signed up for every class available, determined to learn no matter how afraid I was. I came upon a teacher, Stan Miller, who inspired me, who opened the door to success in watercolor. I love to look at beautiful images. I want to capture them forever. All my life, photography was how I gathered images of the beauty I saw. Thanks to all that photography, I enjoy composing pictures, especially up close. Watercolors allow me to add more of me in their translation of that beauty. My paintings reflect my love for music and dance, with their rhythm and flow. I am fascinated by the play of light, so it appears in my pictures as drama for they are filled with darks and lights. Maybe it's the challenge, maybe it's the beauty, but now, when a work comes together, it fills my soul.
