Recent retiree--35 year's experience teaching reading, English, adult basic education and volunteer leadership skills. Started this blog to exchange ideas and commentary with friends and others having an interest in joining the discussions. Greatest life accomplishments include: 1.organized my 3rd grade class to check out library books for me to get around librarian's weekly limit--Amazon.com, the Mullins Elementary 3rd Grade Class of 1956 is still waiting for "thank you" notes; 2. volunteered in the Peace Corps, island of St. Kitts, West Indies; 3.taught adults to read, earn their GEDs., and speak English as a second language; 4. bought a border collie puppy for $6, got evicted rather than give him up, and began a life-long love affair with all things "Dog"; 5. joined a physical fitness boot camp in my mid-50s--don't mess with someone who's been doing regulation pushups in wet grass at 5:30 a.m.; 6. walked across Northern England with best friend Sally--over 80 miles from the Irish to North Seas; and 7. travelled to many foreign countries for pleasure and work.

Macro and Mosaic Monday - Chet Warhol


                                                         ~ click on image to enlarge ~

I thought about calling this post "Chet PicMonkeyed", but then decided that "Chet Warhol" was a better fit for the mosaic.  Anyway!  I played around a bit with PicMonkey special effects to zero in on some of the Wild Man's best qualities--wedgey ears, soft brown eyes, hound dog snout, speckles, and that telltale rim of mud around his nose left over from his favorite pasttime, digging.  This is PicMonkey special effect HDR.



Then I went a little crazy and tried out the Warhol special effect and thought he looked almost as good as Andy Warhol's psychedelic Marilyn Monroes--remember them?


Then a Facebook friend suggested that he would look good in an arrangement of 3s like Warhol's famous Coke bottles or Marilyns.  I didn't, however, think the world needed a painting of 32 Chets like the famous Campbell's soup cans by Warhol. :-)

Is this Chet's 15 minutes of fame?

My swan was trying to sleep rather than sheltering from the rain - but somebody kept making clicking noises nearby so it had to open its eye!
