The vaccine will keep us alive! Hurry. LINE UP!! Phhhhbt. Hmmmm.. will it?
What about those side effects.. in 3 years. Will the vaccine change by then for the evolving pandemic - probably.
How many vaccines will we put into our bodies before we can't handle anymore?
There is no vaccine for all those who will suffer from job loss, shut downs, poverty & hunger, domestic abuse.. loneliness - a shot in the arm won't help any of these situations.
Statement heard on a CBC podcast 'IDEAS' not my origianl idea regarding on how to address the pandemic.
AS our Canadian politicians WARN & put the fear of GOD in us “WEAR A MASK!! STAY HOME!!” Then travel to tropical islands and LIE about it by posting illusions on Instagram - sneaky fucker. Has there ever been such hypocrisy for all to SEE? In my opinion it should end up in an automatic loss of ‘entitlement’ to the POLITICIANS who pretend to support & represent ALL Canadians.. from the beaches of another country - during a global pandemic. Clearly they can’t resist the CHEAP travel deals.. worth the cost of covid.
No wonder we don’t trust what politicians tell us anymore as Walmart Costco & Amazon thrive… Doug Ford, just another ‘leader of the pack’ it appears but they all push the ‘miracle vaccine!’… It seems a little ‘too good to be true’… does it not?
In the states.. some are olny getting 1/2 the vaccine now, you know - the same vaccine that states we need to have 2 doses for it to work. What is it? One or two? Will the new vaccine work for the new Covid strains? Hmmm I can't find a POSITIVE response anywhere - it MIGHT. & if you have the vaccine - you should isolate still for 2 weeks- -it could take that long. but if you have covid- no point. FUCKED up confusion on a global scale. I'll wait.
The days are getting longer… more daylight to paint!
You were created to create- go create something.
Next- these two (below) - a source of constant amusement, thank God.
All Inmates are sitting ducks.
Do you know anyone in jail? I do, several.
I know someone who is in jail for murder and a few in for stupidity, right now - they are all on death row with Covid -19. "We are Out of sight & out of mind..." my brother educated me - who has time to think about people in jail when we are dealing with life let alone a pandemic ( & more).
PLEASE remember & I stress this because I forget - it's not only terrible humans, in jail where they belong, there are others that 'fucked up'. We all do at some point but we all don't get caught. Perhaps something like fraud, theft, not pying bills.. impaired (I am NOT justifying any crime) ...who knows - JUST not people that physically hurt others are now isolated, locked up & just like all us, concerned about covid... with not even a window to crack open in facilaties with circulated air and poor hygene. Not good.
Apparently inmates are being kept seperate when first entering cell blocks.. how seperate can that be. There are old guys in there, not well in poor health...
I don't know... are they safer? They at least have meals daily and a roof over their heads. Court dates pushed back (why are they not ZOOMing court) yet every day in jail -during covid - makes up for a shorter sentence. I think one day in jail with covid will be considered 2.5.. something like that. - Do you know why, I don't remember exactly?
I'm not locked in a cell during a pandemic. Inmates are counting the minutes, not days or months. WE are free - still you and me, don't forget it.
Give thanks. Stay out of trouble.
Perhaps you could think of someone in jail and reach out and say 'hello'.
Send a funny card- I dont think they can get cards.. but you can write letters!
I've actually had terrific luck with what I send - it seems to get through & I thank God.
I like to hear I make others smile, in particular those who might need to smile, most.
Out of sight out of mind is sometimes a good thing - others times, not so much.
Inmates are just like us, feeling at times (more than most of us) sad, loney and frightened.
No one wants to be a sitting duck.
I was up before Gloria! Painting cocks - Cockadoodledoooooo & they turned out terrific these cockhouses will fly, I hope! ALL proceeds to local charaties in Haliburton & Minden & surrounding areas. -Do what you can do - cockadoodle dooo!

Never say never.. maybe you don't someone in jail, I use to think like that.. then I've witnessed several go to jail this lifetime. It's sad - always sad, even the ones 'I think' belong.
Had someone told me 5 years ago : in 5 years the military will be deployed in Canada to vaccinate everyone & there’s talks of possibly microchipping people - I would have said -
Oh fuck off, you conspiracy theorist. Wait.. have I not read about this in some science fiction maybe 10 - 20 years ago? Or was that more of prediction fiction. We need to go back and reinstate some of our best novels.
Did you know the term ‘conspiracy theory’ was designed propaganda by the CIA to dismiss, deflect, and HIDE. Research it. How many ‘conspiracy theories’ of the past have come to fruition? Think about it… Why is so hard for people to understand above all else this vaccine business is a BUSINESS.
The speed in which this vaccine has been created is concerning- if not, then you are not aware of how long it takes to test medications properly - in order to understand what LONG TERM side effects there MIGHT be.
I fucking hate to hear of anyone (especially anyone I care about) on antidepressants… and I know of a few who have started prescriptions during this pandemic.
These are depressing times… let’s learn to accept and deal with that instead of ‘pill up’ - no doubts thousands have started antidepressants the past few months. Research them..
I DO believe antidepressants actually increase suicidal feelings & I do say this with way too much personal experience. at least 30 years of experience on antidepressants. I often wonder IF they are in fact what has caused my TN - a living nightmare. Look into ‘the marketing of madness’ - I was grateful for the education over a decade ago.
I’d rather learn to live with depression than put anymore poison into my body.
Now, we are expected to believe this vaccine will be the new ‘gonna fix it all’… Understand- I am NOT - ANTI vaccination - I am cautious about a vaccine PUSHED on us before we actually KNOW what IT will do to our bodies. THIS IS the ultimate test here- mandatory vaccine - FUCK NO - that is against humans rights.
NO one should be permitted to put anything in anyones body if they do not wish. EVER. Pay attention - think about this please… it is a VERY big deal.
No, I will not the the first in line, if it means I have some restrictions and to remain social distancing for a while longer - so be it. Until ‘I’ feel safe, am educated and aware- of possible side effects - I’ll take my chances and THAT should absolutely BE each individuals choice.
This is an incredibly slippery slope we are ALL on. Pandemic or None.
Don’t fool yourself a few (limited few) will become very rich on the vaccine - business is business. Not everyone is as concerned about the side effects as they are a side bank account.
This BULLSHIT with BIG stores being able to remain OPEN is exactly that - BULLSHIT.
The rich getting richer while all the small stores go under - it is NOT fair or right.
& remember a few years ago when the talk of ‘micro chipping people’ was considered a conspiracy theory - Look into what Dr. Tam thinks about microchipping, not to mention she works for WHO? is that not a conflict of interest? I don’t know.
& THAT IS MY POINT…
We don’t know.
with THC & TLC, me.
Some days - you just need to sit back and give.. not one fuck.
Not about anything or anyone.. chances are, the world & those we care about will still be there when you return from a small break
Justin Trudeau gave us his new opinion and it sucks... I remember not celebrating Thanksgiving - in hopes we might celebrate Christmas. The 'holiday' now comes with an entirly new level of not needed stress - for too many.
Others lives are more importnt to me than a holiday so... I'll go with the flow.
I'm sure you are aware of disbelievers.. well, there are days I tell you I don't know what to fucking think about any of this- the vaccine is disturbing, in the past- they took MUCH longer to test before giving it frankly. I'm in no hurry to get it. If you research and watch - there are many VERY educated people questioning all of this and the lock downs. Yes, it is confusing - the government can't seem to get their shit together and get on the same page - no wonder poeple are becoming impatient and tired - covid exhasuted.
RIGHT NOW - I will wear a mask- NOT because the goverment insists, because I care about you - strangers.. I don't want to make you sick. I I don't know enough to take a chance. Do you? It's that simple. I do believe masks work to some degree. Just say - this is all a giant hoax (I don't feel it is) but just say it is... either way- I would rather be known as a "sheep" (far from) for wearing a mask than someone who refuses to wear a mask and takes a 'CHANCE' in making others sick. I'm not concerned about dying - fyi - I just don't want to get sick'... do you?
I already live with chronic pain from Arthritis & the the fucking constant TN that wakes me up most days before the rooster and fucks with me ALL DAY LONG.
Right now - nope, I cant do it.. not one fuck will be given about covid, masks, Trump or vaccines.
I am trying to shop LOCAL - my neighbours need the help - everyone should be doing the same, suport your local community so they are still there after this pandemic.
I decided to buy ALL Canadian made this Christmas and homemade' & I'll be painting & not giving one fuck... until, maybe Monday.
30% of Snowbirds are still flocking south... WTFlock?
I don't get it... on several levels. I thought we were not encouraged to travel to the USA which is struggling with a pandemic? I understood borders were still closed.
Why would anyyone right now, want to vacation in the USA - have there been more turbulent times? Will they be insured if they catch COVID?
Will we fly them home AGAIN if shit hits the fan at our expense... again?
What if they get sick and bring it back...
I cannot be the only Canadian thinking like this.
I also don't get it as most of these snowbirds are older, vunerable to catching covid.
I read one snowbird was missing "the beach, sun and cheap rum", that said enough.
Sunshine & Alcohol are worth it all? To alcoholics, I guess.
I understand wanting to travel - especially if you own a condo down south and it's just sitting there - go... BUT this time I don't think the goverment should be responsible in anyway for your safe return. It's NOT like the world is not aware of what's going on. IF YOU choose to go down south GO - but don't make other Canadians who choose to try to do what we are told to do, in order to slow a fucking pandemic killing thousands of Canadians & others around the world, pay for your selfishness.
For the sake of a tan & cheap rum is shallow & selfish.
Clearly some don't think the rules apply to them.. and our government can't seem to get it's shit together so no wonder these loons thinks its safe to fly.
Adios snowbirds, Go! May you safely return in your cars and not coffins.

A painting I did while playing. I can't paint anything serious' at the moment as the PUP needs my attentionn more. Good puppy traing = great dog companion for life! So far so good- I can't belive in less that a week- my girl comes to her name, sit's, gives paw.
The interaction between them all has me constantly laughing out loud! Nothing like a pup!
So I paint quick stuff to keep me painting. I have new goat painting in the works and several editorial.
Yesterday, I got a e mail from my friend in Toronto in the wheelchair & after hours of contemplation I wrote to Justin, John Tory & Doug Ford telling them to GET their shit together! Their constant confusion is KILLING/hurting Canadians. This "all in this together" bullshit- is that - bullshit. Neighbours ratting about building permits...
My friend lives with a roommate as she can't afford on disability to live other own. She lives in building in Toronto and MUST USE the elevator - WHEELCHAIR - there are signs that say only so many on the elevator and you must wear a mask- well her roommate (out to get them supplies) when returning and several got on the elevator- too many & NO MASKS! - He questioned them if they read the notice in the lobby.. a few moments later some woman knocked on their door & PUNCHED HIM IN THE FACE! Telling him to mind his fucking business. WTF!? She has not received any extra assistance!
Her roommate was also in a taxi and the driver was yelling into a phone - NO mask - he asked him to get off the phone and put on his mask & the taxi driver pulled over and told him to get the fuck out of his car. THIS SHIT IS HAPPENING because OUR 'LEADERS" can't get their shit together, FACT! I've no doubts this is NOT an isolated offence- and NO my friend does not want to call the police for FEAR of escalation, I get it.
So enough with this bullshit WE are ALL in this together! ARE WE?
Are you going to ease someone stress today or ADD to it?
Speaks volumes about you - what you choose to do - how you treat your neighbour.
Actions speak louder than words.
Those who refuse to wear a mask - should absolutely addressed & fined.
In indonesia they make them dig the grave sites for covid deaths - sounds like a great idea to me. Or how about we send them to jail for week- in jail with no soap, sanitizers and POOR ventilation, no mask to wear there.... With winter coming- every non violent crime also becomes a possible death sentence. ALL in this together?

Covid Surcharge - or tax... ? Phhhhhhbt!
If I visit a business & they charge me a 'covid surcharge' or tax I will turn around & leave without my purchase. Are you kidding me?
Business owners better think twice. Did I create this pandemic?
Am I responsible for making others sick or closing your business?? HELL NO.
I have been shopping (carefully with a mask) trying to support my community - take out from several places so everyone gets a bit.. yes WE are ALL in this together but if you think you are going to make me pay for 'it', guess again.
To chage people extra because YOU are a business owner, lets face it therefore you must be better off than MOST... if you own your own business.. am I wrong?
WHY punish your CUSTOMERS who ARE ALSO infact, struggling.
Nope. Don't do it!
Not only that.. actions will remember, long after covid is complete.
Will covid ever be complete? I WAS so proud of Canada until I saw photos for all the selfish
that decided it was a great day to hang out at a park in record numbers. I didn't see anyone over 50 in the photos.. perhaps the older are wiser. Probably just more afraid of dying.
Covid-19 $$$ - have you applied? It appears there is money for all. I did not apply, I am grateful to God for all I have and know others need it more than I do. I asked a friend tho if she's applied, I KNOW she needs the help as she is in a wheel chair. NO- the disabled are not being helped in covid times. NOT only that but she IS in a wheelchair (MUST be) and NOW, wheel trans says she can't bring anyone to help her get groceries!!! What a fucking joke - she is wearing a mask, has to ride an elevator, can't get around or stay away from others 6 feet, like most of us. YET, look at all those COVID IDIOTS in the park. I have NO doubts many applied - got money and DON'T NEED IT. She WHO NEEDS the help cant get fucking help!? already living below the poverty line. Now that YOU have read this please mention it to someone.. it needs attention - OR we are NOT 'in this all together.'
Finally, a friend I've know about 2 decades on social media only & become snail mail pals too, has had a battle with cancer like no other and she is a fucking warrior. Over the years I've watched this woman run marathons, LOVE her hubby -it made me jealous at times, work hard, support others who had cancer before she did, made gifts for many people including me, christmas ornaments.. she is so thought & kind a couple of years ago we decided to meet- I invited them to visit... Recently, she did not go to the hospital due to cover fears and now her cancer has reappeared - I can't even. :(
She's not doing well... so for all you - all over the world who want to hang out in a park because your bored and don't give a fuck for others safety - YOU are slapping my friend who IS fighting for her life in the face and I am not happy about it. FUCK COVID!!!
And all of you who are behaving selfishly in these times.. do you understand how karma works?
Stupid is as stupid does. ` Forest Gump
We can't even bury our dead with more than five people.

Weeeee! Thank you Canada! Our first year of Legalization and we did not end up looking like a bunch of Loons! Heeheehee I knew we wouldn't.
We proved if anything, to the rest of the world - not only is legalization working but it was 'Highly successful' it's first year - and Not one overdose - let's all breath a sigh of relief & put reefer madness to rest. It was Norm that reminded me - "it's a year!" - because I have been legal for years, I kinda forgot. Thank God. Thank God we are NOT stressing anymore over such bullshit, now we can all focus on Politics' a little better - ready to vote? I am.
I'm going to show up braless with a 'I love Justin T!' hahahhahaa (just the thought has me giggling) I vote at a local restaurant & I've no doubts, I'll be surrounded by several Consertatives. hee hee I don't trust 'conservatives and cannabis'... I wonder why.
I don't trust consertatives & pipelines.
Still hearing stories (more now come out of the Cannabis closet now that it's Safe'r) of when they were younger and was busted for growing a plant. What took so long for this madness to end? Some are still being busted... & as always there's usually a little more to it. I hope all who have been charged in the past look into having prior charges cleared, take the time while it's available - who knows what the future holds.
Yes, it is a reason to celebrate! Canada has profited & shall continue to thrive - now with edibles once it's all sorted out. I do make my own edibles.. but when edibles are easier to purchase - say at a bakery (in a special *adult glass counter) I'll buy more edibles. I do not like to purchase stuff that I can't touch, see or smell. People have expressed & continue to do so by visiting dispensaries and NOT via the gov and mail to show - they want to SEE, smell the bud & the experience. I think the government will soon agree & the only way for them to make the money they anticipate is to let a wider distribution & tax it all. Just as convenience stores sell beer & cigarettes - let delicious bakerys or gourmet food shops sell delictable snacks.
...When Pigs fly!
I've heard that before.
I am currently mid canvas' so, I did not spend as much time as I might have otherwise on this anniversary - next year! Next my witchy crystal ball will tell you who will win the election!

Georgia - Loon on the Hill! hahaha
Proud to be me.
This painting occupied about 2 weeks of my time painting & almost a year contemplating. I just needed to find the perfect tree, the perfect tree needed to find me. There it sat in front of me as I was somewhat lost in my woods. It's easy to get lost as you are not on flat land and surrounded by trees, you can't hear what direction noise is coming from... luckily, I remembered this ap. I downloaded and there I was a little bluedot.. I walked until I saw the blue dot was moving twoards the direction of the house - forest creatures watching - were amused - I could sence them laughing at me as I stumbled past that same 'amazing' rock 3 times.
That tree spoke to me, whispred "Stop. Look at me - what do you see?" It looked like a person sitting there... I hung out there for a while (the girls always with me happy to be lost in the forest) & I thought of missing women, in particular Indigenous women, missing because they were TAKEN. Into a forest... missing. Gone.
In the past few years I have researched this too many times. Read about the Red River & how womens bodies are commonly found in it. Would there be a different response if not idgenous women - Yes, I believe there would & that is shameFULL of Canada. Why are we wasting fucking time & 'resources' with "world breaking news" like Justin in 'black face' (God forbid the day we are ALL judged for all the stupid shit we did IN OUR PAST) Or watching documentaries on netflix by Chelsea on 'white privledge' by a white privileged woman - no shit there is a problem - still... but do you know what is worse for black women, hispanic women, indigenous women - in Canada & the USA - ALL around the world... ALL colors, shapes & AGE: Murder, Abuse, sex trafficking, rape, sexual harrassment to simple (constant issues) such as less pay & job discrimination, - just for being FEMALE.
Why are we reading about bullshit in the news? WHY?
WHY is this NOT the top story... when will it be?
Why - because it would be on the news every day & it is DEPRESSING - OH well, just for a second imagine how depressing it is being the mother, father, daughter, son, sister, brother, aunt,uncle, cousin, partner, friend to a missing young girl. Taken.
Time to stop saying "missing" & call it what it is - TAKEN. Stolen.
Do you care if Justin was black faced - long ago, when he was young, stupid & hairy?
(Hee hee hee) - those who judge him for it - Phhbt.
If only some cared half as much as they do about politics as missing women- there would be fewer misisng women. When we know better - we do better? Does Justin not apply to the same rules we all do? Last time I checked he was still, just a man.
It would be comical actually, if we were NOT wasting such resources - like news, journalism, awareness, education, thought, policing, money & time on what really mattered. Each other. Women.
I have another painting, inspired by another tree - another missing woman - I'm sure there are as many as I have trees... I plan on painting several to bring 'light' to the situation. Below the tree that inspired the painting.
