Dearl or No Deal

Last night we went out to dinner with Rick and Rose to celebrate Randy's birthday. We had such a great time catching up with all the excitiment at their house. Their kids are still young so they are in the throws of soccer, grades, college selections, pee wee league, oh those busy, busy days. I remember and thank God everyday that I am not doing that anymore! LOL Its true that we love the season in our life but are glad for a change.

We got home and I was not really tired, actually I couldn't sleep at all. I ended up turning on the TV and "Deal or No Deal" was on, it was a special speed show where they picked all their cases at once and only had 20 seconds to decide. It made for fast and furious tv, but it did change the people up much faster than normal. I grabbed my little sketchbook by the bed and started to sketch the contestants. Trying to capture their look and personality quickly since they would only flash to them when they were considering the bankers offer. It made for a great, quick challenge and study of faces. I might have to do this more often.
