Live Wild & Free & Don’t Eat Wimpy Fries

Horses were part of my life most of my childhood.

Aunt Laurie (the youngest of all the aunties) has a strong love for horses.

When I was about 9 years old she surprised me with the gift of a year of horseback riding lessons.

Turns out I’m not that great at riding horses.  But I loved trying.

I should have known that the horse things wasn’t MY thing when my favorite part of our weekly trip to the riding place was stopping at McDonalds and testing the fries.

That’s right people, I ate at McDondalds weekly.  It was the late 80’s, we didn’t know any better.

I digress.

When we got our fries we tested them to see who was wimpy.  If it was a wimpy fry that just crumbled we didn’t eat it.  Only the crunchy got devoured.  It was the best.

Today’s video features a fun watercolor technique, hope you enjoy.
