  11. This comes from page 183 of Johnny One-Eye by Jerome Charyn:

    "A wise commander didn't count every single soul on his ship--a man-o'-war was filled with devils, doxies, and dogs. he had not been prepared for Clara, who spoke the king's English better than he did, was never grasping, wouldn't have dared ask him for money, and took her own delight no matter whom she was with."

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.
