Old Memories.

My spare time yesterday and today (like I am so busy! Not!) was spent doing a pen and ink sketch of an old bridge. I thoroughly enjoyed myself, all alone, just me, myself and I.  A quiet time.pen and ink..old briidge

It brought back memories of when I went to Point Grey Junior High School in Vancouver, many moons ago! I presume that in this day and age our little “Pen and Ink Club” would be called “Extra Curricular Activities” and if the teachers were to go on strike, no club activities. Back in my time at school, teachers didn’t go on strike.

They had 35 to forty students in a class, but they didn’t have any students that had learning disabilities. There was no “bullying” back then, either.

There has been so many changes… and not all for the good… but that’s a different story that I don’t care to get involved in.

I was the only girl in that club. And I still love to do pen and ink sketches!

Jigsaw Puzzles

Jigsaw Puzzle

My last blog post showed some of my friends working on a 1000 piece puzzle. A very difficult puzzle. I did put a few pieces in it, but I didn’t work on it very much.

My job is the official photographer for every puzzle they do!… and they have done a lot of puzzles!

Some of my viewers asked that I show the finished product. Try to count all the little blue fish. No, I don’t know how many there are!20130211 jigsaw

As soon as this one was finished, it was transferred to another table,(by moving the other table up next to the first one, and sliding the puzzle over!) and a new one started.

Why don’t you pull up a chair and have a cup of tea… the kettle is boiling, and maybe I can find some cookies!
