'happy ballet - versary!' by myra anderson painter of the ballerina sketch . . .



This month Harvey and I will have been married for 37 years.  That is longer than artists like you and HM, KJW, JFO, LG, Lee, and JM have been alive! 

What do I want Harvey to give me for my anniversary?  There was a time when I only required fancy trips, garments of satin and lace, a gourmet meal and some chocolates . . . 

 But . . . times have changed - a little - and today I wouldn't be mad at ya if I also received a lovely little gift box with - that thing that permanently removes facial hair, those glasses that are really binoculars, those gloves that you wear on your hands when your hands ache  - and  - those wraps and pads that you wear when everything else aches!  I also want some drums and some drumming lessons in case I want to be in an all girl band.  HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!

If YOU would like to send me some art supplies for my anniversary please let me know and I will email you my address.  I would like some canvases or watercolor paper, some acrylic paint and some brushes Ma!!!!!!

Thank you Faye! You gave me quite the chuckle! I hope that you are not calling me an 'oldie'!!! I am no where near 80! I actually got married when I was three and Harvey was five! LOL !!!! 
 
Faye and her friends - what a bunch of cuties!!!!

gorgeous painting! Happy anniversary. I love how your tastes have changed over the years:):) I started going to drum circles (different than your drumming)and went to my first W. African dance class which I posted about for PPF. If you want to go drum you should!

Myra, congratulations on your 37th anniversary. That is quite a milestone in today's world. You would be surprised how many oldies there are at the PPF each week. Take a look at my post to see me with my 80 year old friends. Take a look also at my profile. Your ballerina girl is precious. Hope you get your art supplies.
