    Mr. Best, I was wondering what your favorite role has been for you, other than the dukes. I did enjoy watching you on an episode of Bonanza though I teared up a bit when your character died. I remember meeting you when I was younger and was so excited about it that I couldn't shut up. I think I drove my family nuts with it. All the best to you Artykidd
  2. Apparently Daisy and Flash are popular names. I have a dog and a turtle (among other pets) with those names.
  3. After extensive research going through the soundboards, I have come to the conclusion that both Rosco and Boss should sue the pants of Homer Simpson and the Fox network for copyright infringement on the "Doh" soundbite.
  4. I'm sorry to hear that Jessi. Things are bad all around. I know that doesn't make your situation any better but keep looking for a job. Some companies are still hiring while others are downsizing.
  5. Yep, I love the fine arts. I used to sing alot but not so much anymore. Most of what I do is painting/photography and sculpture. I teach it because I'm passionate about it. Also, I love working with students who share the same interest. I started before I could walk. My dad would put a pen, pencil or whatever in my hand and I was thrilled that I could just make marks. I draw because of my father and I teach because of my mother.
  6. On University BLVD in Jacksonville, they were putting up a Dunkin' Donuts and overnight someone put up a plywood sign........ "Future home of Jacksonville Sheriff's Office." It was taken down before I could ever get a picture.
  7. Any updates on Al? I hope his condition is improving.
  8. If there is anyone that hasn't figured it out yet, I teach art at a public high school. It is the best job in the world and you couldn't pay me enough to quit. It may sound corny to some when I say it but the Good Lord called me to be a teacher and I love every minute of it.
  9. Thanks for all the comments ya'll. I did sell another one. Someone actually bought it while I was at the gallery on a field trip with my advanced students. It was pretty cool. http://s21.photobucket.com/albums/b254/Artykidd/my%20artwork/?action=organize Here's the link to my album with most of my work. I marked the one's that I've sold during this gallery showing.
  10. Merry Christmas artykidd

  11. I spewed my coffee on the Rudolph and Hermie one. I love Jeff Foxworthy and Jeff Dunham. I bought one of his DVD's for my husband for Christmas. I do have to admit though...... Growing up, the whole town would tour the local trailer park on Christmas Eve to view the Christmas lights.
  12. Those are some pretty cool traditions, though I did laugh at the thought of 'wrapping' kids. I'm afraid my family traditions are a bit redneckish of not bordering on slightly hillbilly. Ever since I was a little kid, Christmas eve was celebrated with a candlelit ceremony at church where the Christmas story was read, the Lord's supper was taken and then a prayer was said. Nothing to elaborate and over in about 15-20 minutes. Then, here's the redneck part, we would all pile into the old 40 chevy and drive to the local trailer park to look at Christmas light. Yep, trailer park. The local police have to direct traffic it has gotten so big and Santa is always at the end, handing out candy canes to kids. There are a few southern twists to it as well. The lights usually have Santa in an old pick up with the deer hanging out in the back, sitting on hay bales. After that we go back to my folks house and have wine or other libations and Christmas cookies while my husband and my sister's husband have to sit through listening to the whole family quote the movie "A Christmas Story" while it plays on the big tv. Christmas morning always starts with the reading of the Christmas story, though I'm not sure if we're doing it this year. My little sister's speech is much worse now and it seems wrong to have someone else do it. Then we rip open the gifts and make as big a mess as possible and then take pics of the carnage. Afterwards we go out in the yard and play with all the new toys or watch my four year old neice play with hers.
