Hi.

Very frustrating day shift at work because of a bad decision from me. Because of a very uncertain sky and no possibility to sketch prior to start my shift, I choosed to have a nice ride in my Miata along the shore before going to work. But during this ride, the sky cleared up and the sun was shining brightly up to my drawing spot... Grrrrr, I was really frustrated of my decision. And with the clouds growing up in the afternoon, my hope for a clear sky at 7pm after my shift were very thin. But the gods were kind we me and the sky cleared up totally at 7pm...

Andre.

Andre,
Nice work, some beautiful prominences on the limb. We have had nothing but clouds and rain for several days only a few peeks of Sun.
Hope you enjoyed you ride!
Ken

Thanks Ken.

For sure, I always enjoy my Miata's rides. But they are less pleasant when such things happen.

Did you see the satellite weather map ! Its terrible that much clouds. The total east coast is overcast. Incredible. I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO borred of these clouds, you can't image... Heuh. Yes I'm sure you can image because you are in the same boat as me.

Andre.

Andre,

Maybe my sky would clear if I went for a ride in a Mazda Miata. Even if the sky didn't clear the car ride would be fun.
Nice sketch :)

Frank.

No no and no. You would not take my Miata to run at the sun. Only me can do that and enjoy the ride ahahahaha. Its fun to have a nice ride and catch the sun with the scope at the same time. Two hobby at once.

Wow! What a multitude of proms!!! Very nice!

So you see, André, never panic. You've had both joys, the lovely ride with your convertible and doing the drawing. But perhaps if you had been more confident you'd enjoyed the ride a bit more? So... keep the faith! If you stay positive, only good things will happen! :D
