Ferocious

Hey all,! Sorry I’ve missed the last few weeks. I’ve been laid up with an extreme case of bronchitis.  I learned a lesson though...breathing is important :o)  It felt like that commercial where the elephant is
sitting on the guys  chest.... so I had to incorporate myself into the “IF” ferocious theme somehow :o) 
From now on, I’ll just settle for my wife taking my breath away when she walks into the room :o)  I’m
taking another week off work to recuperate and finish up another book that I have been working on. .... Feels good having some ‘doodling” time. God bless all my blogging friends out there and your loved ones.

  1. awwww, sorry you have been sick Jack. Must be something in the air, I've been down with something too and it just won't go away. An elephant on your chest sounds very unpleasant, I hope he gets off there soon. Try to get over that ferocious case of bronchitis and feel better ;)

  10. OOOOOH my goodness Jack!!!! Oh man I am so very sorry. I am glad that you are feeling better. I know the feeling cause us to have it chronically. I needed to get out Jersey cause it was doing nothing for lungs. Healing is yours so take all that need at this time. I love this purple Elephant and the poor boy who is trying to assist him LOL!!! Oh man he is going to need a serious massage, pain meds and prayer after all that! Love it. Great post.
    I am on the mend. Slowly I turn step by step, inch by inch Martha?

  15. So sorry you're not feeling so good, Jack. Elephants can be cruel sometimes, no? Well, at least you should try keeping them away from your chest... :))

    Love your "ferocious", looks like the boy got more than he bargained for!

    So take care, ok? Yes, leave your lovely wife to the breathtaking job...LOL!

  17. Sending prayers and hugs! So sorry to hear you have been so 'under' the weather. I love your spirit though. Despite the ill your humor is intact. I think of you often, when I work, and love it whenever you have the occasion to visit. I received your comments just before attending my first ever SCBWI conference - your words bolstered me on. Be well, Jack!

  20. Actually, some of those cute birdies really are ferocious! I've seen them drill dive our cat several times when they think their nest is in danger.
    The elephant's weight is well communicated by that poor guy...
