16″x20″ Original Oil Painting by Will Cooper, starting bid .01 cent. Go to www.eBay.com .
I have come to the realization that I’m wasting valuable time painting original pieces for eBay. I guess the Obama economy has finally reached the giant auction house. Lex asked me last night why am I killing myself painting long hours only to see my art work get bids of a fraction of its worth? I had no answer. I guess I’m just hard-headed and hate to fail. When we are defeated we need to be a man and face the music. I failed on eBay so I’m tossing in the towel. I was watching a college football game a few weeks back. One team was down by three touchdowns with a minute left to play. The losing team was calling time out. The coach needed to admit his team was whipped and start taking a knee. He was in a hopeless situation, just like me selling art on eBay. High bids have dried up.
As you know by now Nancy Pelosi sent everyone home without voting on the budget. She knew 47 Democrats and all the Republicans were going to vote to extend all of the Bush tax cuts. I suspect she will never let Bush tax cuts get voted on and simply let all of them expire. If that happens you can expect several more months of a wobbly economy.
I, for one, am glad to see the Obama Summer of Recovery pass. I thought the country might go under while we were in the middle of that powerful recovery. You know what is strange? I think Mr. Biden and Mr. Obama thought all they had to do was start telling folks we were in a Summer of Recovery and suddenly things would get good. Mr. Obama has been told what power he has with words, he has started to believe those around him. He thought he could talk us out of a recession.
Remember after the stimulus passed Mr. Obama was showcasing Caterpillar as an example of a company that would use the money? They did. They used the money to open a plant in China.
Maybe it’s time to catch you up on some personal news. Lex’s mom and dad sold their place and moved to Fort Worth. The little log cabin was chewed up with termites and fell apart when they began moving it. They took a beating on the ranch, but the money gave them a nice nest egg for retirement.
I don’t know if I told you, Mandy’s husband died and she has moved in with one of the Twin’s wife. I think she is going to rotate between the families.
California Charlie has a baby and the last time I heard he was working in the Carly Fiornia’s campaign. We don’t talk much. I’m not sure we have spoken since I got married.
The kid who was stealing calves is a Freshman at Texas A&M and doing very well. The county helped him with a scholarship. I think maybe we saved one young man.
I’m glad you ladies out there talked me into getting married. It’s really nice to have someone to talk with who understands what’s happening. Besides she is a looker and nice to be seen in public with. (smile)
I appreciate all of you. It’s because of you I blog. Even if I don’t list art on eBay, I will continue to blog. Will and Lady Lex
