|Irene and Shirley|
The other day (OMG it was Monday, a long time ago) I did a meme re: what new books are you waiting to read when they are released. Well one was Zentangle. It's on order. My friend Shirley and I took a class of tangle, I won't call it Zen. It was a great class and a pleasant day. Shirley was kind enough to offer to drive. I don't, so often these classes are out of my realm of possibilities, and yes I could wake up Handy Andy, but you know that saying, "sometimes I wake up grumpy, sometimes I let him sleep", and that would just take the fun out of my day if I had to deal with grumpy so early. I'd love to take the Zentangle class from Rick and Maria and am seriously thinking of cashing in my children's inheritance to do so. It's in Boston a little too far for an adventure with Shirley. Then I could actually say my piece was a Zentangle. When I finish my companion pieces to this I shall post them. Right now, I'm doing a little sign for a friend's business, ladies room. I'm quite sure that was very poor sentence structure.
Anyway, Shirley is Shirley Feeney, the original, she was Shirley Feeney before Penny Marshal was. She's a gifted joke teller. Each Wednesday in our painting group, Shirley tells us jokes and has us laughing hysterically, the doors are usually closed and I'm sure the rest of the center wonders what goes on there. They better not check our cupboards, they may find some "coffee enhancements". We celebrate birthdays, and holiday with spirit. I've been part of this group for 15 years now and some of them have been together for longer, and some have heard the fun and joined us.
So this is my Saturday Snapshot.
