Too funny..........hahaha

Ha Ha Ha, I don't have anything crafty to show for my absence, but I do have somethig that is too funny.
This is a caricature of me, no kidding, I totally forgot about this thing. lol

My youngest daughter and I were in the Centre shopping Plaza in 1999, -wow, just seeing this brings back that day so vividly,- and as is always the case with us we were being silly and this artist was doing quick sketches of passersby and paying customers.
Corinne and I stopped and watched for a min. oohing and ahhing at how beautiful they all were especially since he had them done in no time at all. It was amazing.
Anyway Corinne said quite loudly, the little bugger, that I should get one done.
Now anyone who knows me, knows that taking a picture, sketch, or anything that will capture my likeness is a NO-NO, plain and simple. I shot her a look that would kill with a sly smerk on my face which just made her taunt me even more. This went on for a few minutes when someone tapped me on the sholder and pointed my attention to the artist who was holding up this sketch of me and Corinne, see her on the side there?

Well I have to tell you that seeing what he had sketched we both broke out in hysterics, (where ever he got the tennis thing from is a mystery to us since we were both in jeans, but those earrings were my fave at the time), and the great part was his remark that watching us going on like that had been the funniest part of that day.

It's always great to be able to put a smile on someones face eh? Oh and he gave it to me for....... are you ready for this?.............................. NOTHING!!!!!!! Yup I actually have a pic of me that I love. lol And to think it was packed away for so long.

Just thought I would share. HEY, THIS COULD BE MY AVITAR FROM NOW ON!!!!!!!! hehehehe

Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by

Funny story, but I love the sketch he did. You should have it as your blog header :) Someone did mine once in Paris, I was with my daughter too, we thought he said a certain sum, mentally converted it into british pounds and let him go ahead. We got the conversion all wrong and it cost a fortune, AND I hated mine and tore it up as soon as we got back to the hotel.
