I hate to clog up the internet, but I couldn’t find this related, late-1980s image earlier for insertion into the previous post. So, without any further ado [or as some would wrongly have it.../without any further adieu/]:
This was like my 7th or 8th time now at COSTCO. The notion of portion control kept resonating in my head as I tried to reach the handle of my shopping cart and push it around at the same time.
I stop in when my Tacoma needs gas.

This Merced house, which I’ve been told is among the oldest in the Ragsdale neighborhood – built some time in the 1920s – is just down the street from us and on my dog-walking route. So I get to see it at least twice a day, if not more. It has a flat roof except for two small sections, which are covered by ceramic tile very likely made at the California Pottery Company, Merced.
Technical: I used a reference photo taken from my iPhone, which I then displayed on an external monitor while I sketched it freehand on my iPad in Procreate. I use the “cloud” brush in Procreate to do the trees and shrubs; I couldn’t do that in Paper 53.
