A project chapter has closed resulting in a parting of ways with my vintage, Fleetwood Prowler. On the bright side, it’s been moved to a new home where it’ll bring warmth and comfort to some country-fellas who aren’t afraid of slithering, uninvited guests. Hopefully, they can also find out where the recent slithering, uninvited guest breached the rig and shut down further access via that route.
I didn’t have the know-how or means of tearing the rig down to it’s bones to find the entry, and so passed it into the hands of those more capable of such endeavors.
You can read more about it via a post by my friend and colleague, Vicki Warner of WarnerWords, who finds scaly, slithering intruders as unacceptable as I do. Just click the image below to get to her post. It's an interesting tale. Takes place in beautiful, South Africa, where Vicki spent most of her growing up years. She writes about a near-deadly encounter that left her with a lifet-time of challenges.
If you’d like to see how far I got with the Prowler renovation, see the vid below, which shows how the rig looked before I started the updo. Below that will be the renovation update as of May 2021.

Part of what I do, as an entrepreneur and remote contractor, is develop various income streams. Due to a series of chronic-health challenges, I’ve not been able to work a full-time, or even a part-time, job away from home for nearly a decade.
Multiple income streams mean I don’t have to be dependent on one source of income, in event something like illness or a tech-failure prevents me from working. Digital, passive income, generated by things like blogs and video channels, are a great way to generate income even when not working. That’s not to say folks can post a couple blogs and a couple videos and expect to earn a living from them, but it does mean that over time, they may continue to generate income from views and advertisement clicks.
And so, to add to my stream, I’ve embarked on development of a new video series, available on YouTube and Rumble, titled Beginner Art. It’s simple, fun artwork, at a beginner level (which is right where I am with it) that I can provide some fun videos and even help promote some of the multi-media art products. Some are new to me and some I’ve used in other types of business.
Today was the launch, with the first vid of the series, Beginner Art with Angelia: Project 1. That’s the YouTube link. If you’re a Rumble user, just click here, or you can watch the embedded vid below.
I’ve ordered a few sets of simple, multi-media art supplies, but for Project 1, I used my LG Stylo 5 mobile phone. It has an on-board, fine-tip stylus, which I use for work often. This is my third year with the phone and it still works great, although I wish it would have qualified for the latest Android update. Still, the stylus is wonderful for drawing and painting.
The Stylo’s screen is more than large enough to be comfortable, without being bulky. I was happy with the results, after figuring out at least most of the controls in the art app I used, called ArtFlow. It’s one of several I plan to use for upcoming digital projects, blended in with some regular paper and pigments projects to include in the series.
It feels good to be back, working on By the Way content. I’ve had a long summer of chronic illness flareup and finally, able to spend some time at my desk, working on my own stuff as well as collaborating with a friend and colleague to get their site-work back up to par and continuing to get the video channels and website updated for the Marienque church in Brazil, where my brother and sister-in-law pastor. I included their YouTube link, and again, if you’re a Rumble user, you can find their content by clicking HERE.
While all this is going on, I’m praying and consistently believing the good Lord will provide me with the perfect van for my needs. Meantime though, I’m gonna stay busy, stay in the Word, and do what I can to increase our tent of the Kingdom.
Last, I have a friend in Canada that I hope you’ll include in your prayers. His name is Wally and he’s one of the kindest men I’ve ever met. He’s been very sick and in need of the miraculous attention and deployment of healing only our Lord Yeshua can deliver.
Below is a vid Wally, doing what he’s regarded as one of the world’s leading artisans in a craft few can produce.
Thanks for your visit and thanks ahead of time for your prayers! Both are much appreciated!
