I definitely need to wear my glasses more often. This morning I was putting food away in the fridge and saw what I thought were black bags at the back of the fridge, it turned out to be a squeezy bottle of Branston Pickle lying on its side! Black bags may be unusual in fridges in most houses but the other day I found a loaf of bread in the fridge and the cheese in the bread bin...like I said OLD AGE DOESN'T COME ALONE.
SnoWhite accused me of being a nerdy older student........WHY?
Because I showed her my art sketchbook and she said I was typical of the older student on her art course who does twice as much as everyone else and still worries that it isn't enough.Thanks SnoWhite!
Yesterday in my art class we looked at the work of Georgia O'keefe and whilst SnoWhite has studied her work before I have heard her name but never heard anything about her or seen any of her work.Remember all the students in my class, apart from me are 16 and so you still have to be careful what you discuss as a lecturer and the lecturer asked ME what I saw in the work of Georgia O'Keefe. Well not wanting the other students to think I was strange I said I could see nothing but I am sorry but all the photographs that she showed us looked like female genitalia!
I spoke to SnoWhite and she said that I was right, Geogia O'Keefe was well known for painting pictures of flowers that looked like female genitalia.Thank goodness for that, I thought it was something to do with being a nurse and studying biology was making me see things. They are however very good paintings.
Beauty has taken her glasses with her to school today,it will be interesting to see how long she wears them!

Ha ha! I think I would have played it safe and said I couldn't see anything too!


I can see it now, I would have been forever branded by the others in the class as a pervert for even noticing.




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
