Friday Roundup- Aaaaah...Just What the Doctor Ordered

It's been a good week here at Rancho Ramirez but I'm glad it's winding down. The deadline for the puppet show illustrations is right around the corner. I got a few more to go then it's time to mat them for the presentation that will be made next week. How things will proceed for the show after that is unknown to me but it should help the process along. When the time is right I'll post some of the illustrations.

On Thursday Pammy, myself and our good friend Dave shot some footage at park of an idea for a psa featuring Doc Ed. It's not meant to be a finished product but rather a video sketch of what we have in mind for the project and to show how "Doc" could translate into a t.v. persona. We hope to present it to the good folks at the Edwards Aquifer Authority sometime next week.

We, that is my son and I, got to do some fun stuff at the stop motion animation class. The teacher decided that we needed to start building the characters for our project. The basic material for the armature of the figure would be wire which we soldered together and that was exciting in and of itself because we're learning to solder. Jose's character is an alien with it's body built up with a soft foam clay. Monday, hopefully we'll start to animate our creations.

The weekend is here so it's time to get into low gear until Monday when things start cooking once again at Rancho Ramirez. Have a great weekend.

This is why I love The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Oh, and John Oliver is the best! What fantastic writing. There are days when it's the only way I can ingest the political happenings of the day. Thank you Comedy Central.

I spent the better part of the day painting the pre-production art for the puppet show. Now I've got errands to run. To the Rancho-mobile!! Happy Monday!
