I have a few “wanna be’s” in my life…I “wanna be” a piano player, but all I can manage is chopstix , and I do better with the utensils…I “wanna be” a dancer…but all I did was go to dancing school age 4-10, and besides, the tu tu’s scared me…I “wanna be” a poet…and I DID actually win a poetry contest in high school, (have no idea where that poem is)….I also imagined myself to be an artist in my more wistful days….and I have dabbled in some attempts at art (using the term loosely).
While we were gone this December, I found some idle time to do a little sketching…or attempt to do some..I have used my grandkids as subjects before, but it has been a while since I got out “the ‘ol sketch pad.” I do not claim to be anything but a “hacker”…but our grandkids liked getting these portraits…mostly because they are done by their dementia driven Grama/Mimi…..
Taylor Kate Heiser, age 12 Peyton Lang Heiser, age10
Campbell William Ross Heiser, age 6 Aiden Kendall Wolff, age 2
Trust me, my brother is the talented artist in the Ross family (my maiden name)….Not me….But it did give me something constructive to do ….
We took our walk this morning in the rainy drizzle…yes, I said rain…
That is fog at the end of our street…
I think I have mentioned what fabulous, crazy and totally “off the wall” family we have…A perfect example is the photo on the left…
This would be my 2 son-in-laws…They were at the Hampton Inn, Carmel Indiana the weekend before Xmas. Both families were swimming in the indoor pool…Someone, (and it could have been EITHER ONE of the men), decided to run outside and make snow angels….HMMMMM….Should I be worried about Timothy Heiser and John Wolff???….No, because this is EXACTLY what happens when any parts of our family gets together… total insanity..
Terrie was fast enough to catch this pic on her cell phone and send it to us…trust me, they weren’t out there very long…..
…Makes a mother-in-law proud, eh????
OK, I have managed to find something to blog about, albeit a bit lame….I also want to thank all of you for your concern when we were so “mysteriously” offline and traveling. I will tell you that Scott is out of ICU and back at the nursing home..Den and I went up to see him about an hour ago…Also, my brother-in-law, Dar’s hubby, is doing OK, and I think he is glad we are back home…Dennis…well, what can I say about Dennis that hasn’t been said?? He is a stubborn, ornery, curmudgeony old fart, but a cute one at that…and he is ALL mine. At the moment he resembles Frankenstein, but personally I think staples become him…..More later!!!
WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST “WANNA BE”????
