Remarks:
This is my 90th Chinese Xieyi -- Freehand Brushworks that I painted in my art lesson Wednesday evening.

As soon as I finished my work in the company, I drove to a supermarket in a hurry, I wanted to buy some food on the road, because most of times I had no time to have my suppers before my art lessons. Suddenly, my car stopped and the body of the car changed to be inclined. I went out of my car and found that one of my front wheel was in a hole of the water by the street ? the cover of the water hole was broken for some reason´ I could not help to laugh for the funny accident and a cleaning man also laughed by the street. He said that this was the third car dropped into it this afternoon´

With a funny and laughing, I shouted on the street that ^who can come to help me? ̄ and I called the nearest policeman to help me. He was also laughing and said that he would see how to deal with it. Meanwhile, I came back my car to find the telephone number of the branch of TOYOTA, they promised to offer my car a rescue for 24 hours when I bought their car. Before I made my telephone to be connected, the policeman told me to turn off the car and he had fond several passerbies to carry out of my car. Ha, they were so fast, before I went out of the car, my car had been out of the hole already´

I was so touched for it was only about 5 minutes, since my car in a hope until it was carried out. And after I went out of the car and to thank these people, three of them had gone away´

With a warm and appreciated heart, I went back home. I do feel that I am so lucky person who live in the nice city.

I worked very carefully, but, I colored the mountain part before the black ink had been drying, so that the colors and the inks confused badly... :-)

It really gives me a lesson, before the ink dried, I should not color it.

I will also remember the story before this art lesson.
