Go over or under… that is the question
A quick watercolor that I worked on during the worst pro football game ever, and unfortunately it involved my team, the Redskins. They won, but I’m not sure either team deserved to win, it was that ugly.
As I was painting this, I thought to myself how many fences I have crossed in my life. And no matter how many a person has crossed, the question is always in the back of your head… over or under? Do you go over and risk the wire busting from the post, sending your, you know what’s directly down to the barbwire, or do you cross under protecting your, you know what’s, but risking catching and tearing your hunting jacket or scalp. And my big question is, where are the darn gates? I’m thinking that there are hidden cameras set up along the fence lines, just for the comic relief of hunters injuring themselves crossing, and I’m sure that I’m in a few.
Rules of engagement:
1. Check fence strength of before crossing over… by letting someone else go first!
2. Strip naked before crossing under, assuring safety to your clothes and then get dressed on other side, after removing briars, stickers, and ticks… or let someone else go first!
3. Cross through the middle… and what tear things from both ends! Just stick to number 1 or 2.
4. Stay home all together and watch the Damn Redskins get beat, or play like crap!
I hope these help, and remember “Tuck high or Tuck‘m low, just make sure you Tuck‘m”!
