Teeth in Your Mouth

Life & Laughter
There are so many profound things we hear in our lifetime.  Most things we hear once or twice and they are lost in some remote filing cabinet in our brain, never to be spoken of again.
My dad used to say, “Don’t just stand there with your teeth in your mouth.”  It was a colorful way to say, “Get moving.”  I wouldn’t want that golden nugget of wisdom to get lost, so I use it on my son.  “Don’t just sit there with your teeth in your mouth, Tater.  Get your homework done.”
There are times when I don’t feel like working on my art, or even writing in this blog.  When that happens, I admonish myself by saying, “C’mon!  Don’t just sit there with your teeth in your mouth.”

Pursuit of Art
Speaking of teeth, here is my toothy caricature of Barack Obama.

I had little tobacco cards made to look like the T206 cards from 1911 with this Obama caricature on it.  Here is a view of the front and back of the card.  If you would like one, send a SASE (self addressed stamped envelope) to:
