This is a belt that I've prepared for my storytelling class on Tuesday at ELM, First Methodist Church, Marietta, GA. It is from " Jack Tales" that I learned while teaching in Kentucky. My first grade class always loved this story so am counting on that fact that others will enjoy it too. We have to bring a prop so my husband said I could use this old belt of his. I've got my prop ready!
My brother in law, Freddie Crow, a character in his own right, wanted me to send this picture to the friend that painted this on some kind of animal skin. Bob Peters, Aviation Artist is the artist. He paints, too, on leather jackets and Freddie has several of those.
It was so good I wanted to share it! We laughed till we cried when we saw this shot of Freddie!
I took a geocaching trip to Cartersville, GA. area today with my friend Lea. We left home at 7:45 a.m., storm had passed through earlier, and started caching around the Tellus Museum just off I-75. We found 20 caches today! This tree was in the area of one of our caches. It is a huge maple tree. Yes, there are big trees in Georgia!
My new project given to me by my antique dealer friend, for whom I do some caning! Will wash with Murphy's oil soap, when it warms up, take out old caning and get started! My first caning job for 2012!!
