"You cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it."
Dr. Adrian Rogers 1931-2005

What can you do with tissue paper, glue, and a bit of pastel chalk?


The eyes are from a piece of paper I had printed
and no longer needed.  I kind of like that because
Bill does say volumes with his eyes only!

I used black, brown, pink, blue, and green tissue paper and
only had a photo of Bill to follow ever so loosely.

He is wearing the traditional clothes of Bill...plaid
shirt and cowboy hat.  Once I had the idea of Bill, I ripped
the paper and began to fill it in, and on the shirt cut the paper in
strips. I added water to the glue and then dipped the paper pieces
in the glue. Once I finished placing all the paper and it had dried
I used light blue pastel to fill in the background. 

Thanks to that gigantic super-center, I found a frame that
fit this for low cost.
