I draw & listen to music for entertainment--what do you do? OOPS posted by me Gloria Poole,RN,artist; of/in Missouri

I, Gloria Poole, [Reg Nurse and artist, etc] drew this yesterday with archival ink onto a 9 x 12 inch sketchpad of mine. I signed it, photographed it, uploaded it, and posted it to this blog of mine which is an PUBLIC SERVICE blog of mine to help people find day trip sort of entertainments, music and festivals. It is the time of year when squirrels are foraging for food, and I like to watch them. I drew this using the Missouri Conservation magazine as a reference photo since my own photos of squirrels were not close up enough to draw from. I was afraid of scaring them with camera. I add art I create to this blog on occasion and or photos I photograph, but always words I write. Those are my fingers on the lower left edge of paper. I photographed it on my portable drawing board which I often use to draw. Copyright. Gloria Poole, Missouri. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

This is me Gloria Poole, Registered Nurse, artist, photographer at times, author, illustrator, cartoonist at times, as I looked in year 2002. This photo was photographed by my oldest daughter Jennifer who gave it to me and I have it framed. So I rephotographed it as a digital because I had done that before on one of my cell phones which unfortunately had a Microsoft file on it as an app, that has been nothing but aggravation forever! . The reason I am adding it here today, is because I have to identify to Microsoft that this is ME, so they stop trying to lock me out of my own cell phone and or little computer. I also have a big desktop computer that is not Microsoft, and tables that are also not Microsoft. I have posted different photos of me at different times and they are scattered throughout my blogs and sites. My most recent selfie is the one with my hair in lop-sided pony tail that is on most of my blogs.

You can follow me on twitter at these accounts of mine: @gloriapoole; @gloria_poole; @tweetie0817; @Tartan_Bliss; @ProlifeNurse; and @personhood1.

This is one of my Christian crosses to remind all that I am raised Southern Baptist and am believer in THE LIVING LORD JESUS.That is my hand in that photo that I photographed in recent months this year. To read what I believe please read

This is the symbol of my alma mater Georgia Baptist College of Nursing where I graduated; and took state boards in Georgia to become a Registered Nurse years ago.I have a Registered Nurse license in Missouri.

This is the display I made of the University of Georgia's Terry College of Business where I got a second education and graduated with a business degree.

This is my selfie [Gloria Poole,RN, artist] in spring 2014 but I look the same except that I am thinner and my hair is longer but I still put it in lop-sided pony tail when I walk about or create art to prevent hair from blowing into my eyes or into paint.That is also me that you see in the "about me" box on right side of this blog and I am wearing a dark grey winter wool hat because that photo was taken of me in state of Georgia in Jan 2010 and my family in Georgia saw me wearing that hat and so did other people. So I am leaving that photo also on this blog for that reason.

This is one of my photos of the U S flag I photographed on walkabout to remind all I am a U S citizen with all civil liberties including freedom of Press, freedom to worship THE LORD GOD, and freedom to associate with whomever I want or not to associate with those GOD labels "abomination" and freedom to protest governments.
