Gettin' There...Almost!

Just posted a new update at kickstarter--for backers only this time. The above photo has the cat scratchboards so far. I've got three more on the drawing table in progress. Only have those three and about ten others to draw before doing all of the tedious edits, page arranging and then sending it off to the designer.  There have been numerous warnings about the weather today; severe thunderstorms, maybe tornado's and such. I've spent a lot of time today planning for the worst, and thinking of what is most important to me. Guess what that might be? I've scanned all of the above into the computer (and will probably send them off to dropbox for safe storage), I've got a handy dandy plastic tub waiting for all of the finished artwork, my big three ring notebook that has all of the information I've gotten from all y'all so far, and my laptop. So, just for laughs, you can picture me later today, tonight, or tomorrow, hiding out, sitting in the bathtub with Opal Mae the cat,a plastic tub full of art, paper and computer. And oh yeah, maybe a fresca, flashlight, and my smart phone. In case you think I'm being over dramatic, I'm listening to the radio and they're talking about a tornado on the ground in Oklahoma City...just a couple of hops, skips and a jump or two over the border from NW Arkansas. Hoping for the best. Whoo Hoo!


  1. Hi, Linda, hope those storms missed you. It was certainly horrible for Oklahoma. Take care.

  2. Hi Kathleen, yes, it was horrible for OK. Not as bad for us although, I did sit in the bathtub with Opal Mae the cat and all of the artwork for the book for about an hour while the storms bashed us. Just rain, thunder/lightning and some winds. First time I've been so scared. Opal Mae was not all.

    1. Glad to hear that you & Opal are okay. I grew up in Chicago, so I know what it's like to hunker down during thunderstorms.
