Thursday Portrait.....

I was sitting at my favorite watering hole on the 4th of July waiting to meet some friends.
In walks a strange little guy that I had never seen in there before. Upon entering the pub he see's me and yells out.."Happy 4th of July brother, I know you was in Nam!"
I chuckled to myself and said, "Nope, I WAS drafted, but Uncle Sam didn't want me". He smiled and started doodling on a piece of paper with a #2 pencil....
About 15 minutes later he strolls up to me and asked my name. He then writes it all down and presents this "Masterpiece" to me...."This is how I make my living brother, anything will help".
I gave him a Two-Dollar bill, bought him a shot of Jack Daniels, and he then handed me this drawing. I thanked him and sat down at the bar, as the barmaid Stacy brought me another MGD, she glanced at the sketch and said.."Why did that guy draw you a picture of Michael Moore"?
I hope you all are thinking about your Friday Flash 55...I Am!!

Galen! Two dollars!

& the guy in New York charged me $65 to do my portrait sketch!

But he was the best amongst hundreds of them lined up on the pavement & he could capture the 'feelings' in the eyes...

This is indeed a lovely portrait of your's

WHAT! It is Friday already???

& I was thinking of doing a Galen post...But I didn't realize how time has flown...
