Yikes! It's been 5 days since my last post. It's not because I have not been creating. Just have not had time to take pictures for here. I became addicted to a new HBO series called, Generation Kill. I don't know why it intrigues me or captured my interest but it's got it and I had to watch every episode this weekend. It's about a Marine recon team that our government has invested thousands of dollars in to make the best. They are sent to Iraq prewar stages for "recon" purposes and find themselves involved in various hostile encounters which involve "light em' up" actions. This series is not for those easily offended. I think what intrigues me is the chain of command and how the men consistently listen to the Captain, LT, Captain America, Mr. Potato Head, Godfather, etc. even though they disagree with their strategies. Especially ones that involve civilians being injured or their source of livelihood being destroyed. Although orders are given that everyone is to be viewed as hostile the bravo team's TL has difficulty with innocent people getting hurt. Anyhow, if you have HBO maybe check it out. Not sure whether this is a close recollection of the events taking place over there but it's still intriguing and thankful that we have men fighting for our protection. As I watched the men move into hamlets, I thought what if that was my home? Just imagine waking up one day and then suddenly finding 450 "warriors" if you will surrounding your home. The language barrier is a huge factor with only one interpreter. Okay, I need to stop going on and on.
I did make a couple of cards. The first is for 2S4U card sketch this week. I found some MME paper I forgot I had. Just had to pull it out and work with it. The second card I just made because I had scraps and wanted to create anything I wanted. Thanks for looking!
