Taking a little nap on the countryside

This week's challenge on Illustration Friday is called "bicycle". Some say coincidence doesn't exist. I had made sketches for a drawing about a guy taking his afternoon nap. Two weeks ago you could have seen part of those sketches on my entry for IF's challenge "bottled". Working out that drawing I thought of putting a sign on the car the guy is resting against, saying he works as a bicycle repairman. Doing so, my son told me he had trouble with the gearshift on his bicycle which need to be repaired...
Anyway, this is my 200th message on this blog. So time for some celebration and after that a midday nap would be nice.

Friendship Bread

It's better not to have too many friends, otherwise there will be left less.

Bottle and Glass

Last week I was sketching for an illustration about the Southern European habit of taking a midday-nap, mostly called: siësta. Part of this sketch happens to suit this week's Illustration Friday challenge, called "Bottled".
Unfortunately I'm a sort of taking a break finishing this illustration yet, but who cares? Finishing it "mañana" will be soon enough.

Broccoli

According to Wikipedia the word broccoli, from the Italian plural of broccolo, refers to "the flowering top of a cabbage". It has nothing to do with Albert R. Broccoli, an American film producer, who made more than 40 motion pictures throughout his career and is mostly known as the producer of the James Bond films. Although he was born on April 5th 1909 (and died on 27 June 1996), but who says there's no coincidence in life?
