My First Shirt Painting!

Life has been good here at the Plantation. Randy & I have just been enjoying the beautiful, sunny 70 degree weather, that is until yesterday. Whoa! We had a storm come through that shook the RV – up to 55 MPH winds. Yuck! That is not fun in an RV. We even had a tornado warning, with some tornadic activity just south of us. A little too close for me, but the weather has been crazy all over the country, hasn't it?

Before the ugly weather blew in on us yesterday, I went to my first shirt painting class. It was a lot of fun. The teacher was our landlord, Jan, and she is such a creative person. She had stenciled “Big Red,” the Holland, Michigan lighthouse, on sweatshirts. We then painted the picture. I have never done anything like that before and am DEFINITELY not an artist; not by any definition of the word. But, I am good at coloring inside the lines. (Bonnie Lindner – no comments!!) So, I figured I could do this. And I did! :) I'm pretty happy with the results. Thought I'd share with you. I have to admit, I did most of the painting, but Jan finished up the water and did the flag and the beacon. Good, huh?

That's about here. Tomorrow is a dulcimer day, with the Jubilee Pickers. We also have a gig somewhere in the area, not sure where. Last week we played at a local Veterans' Home. It was very humbling to see how happy those guys were because we were there. How thankful I am to them for their service.

Not much else planned. Tomorrow's Valentine's Day. We don't tend to make a big deal of it 'cause we tell each other “I love you” every day 'cause you never know what's coming down the road. So, take a minute to let someone close to you know how much he/she means to you. It'll make your day a little brighter.

Until the next time . . .

  1. Terry,
    When I saw the title line - wanted to share my artistic creation - why I jumped right on it! What a beautiful shirt! You did good kiddo - I always knew you were good at coloring in the lines!
    I wish that I could work up some sympathy for your 'cold' weather, but alas....thruppppppp!!! (Imagine me blowing you a raspberry) I was in Wisconsin two weeks ago with my folks and it was 49 below zero...and we had an ice storm here in MD yesterday...havent been on my motorcycle since the begining of November :(
    Anyway, glad to hear that life is good for you.

    say hi to Randy for me!

    love you guys!
