Our community has the equivalent of a Rubber Duck Race, only with Turtles that Tumble. The Boys and Girls Clubs and the local arts council, and perhaps a few other non-profit organizations, benefit from this event. One of the banks in town that helps sponsors it, asked met to paint their windows to help advertise, so I did. I painted on Sunday afternoon, much to my late grandmother's moans and groans. She would not have approved the painting on Sunday! However, it was the only time I could possibly fit this project in with my teaching and sewing Halloween costumes.I had one of the turtles that they drop from the sky, I guess from a helicopter. I just painted a bunch of tumbling turtles that looked like the ones they use, well sort of like the ones they use, anyway.
Of course, I painted the wrong date on the window. The lady who called me from the bank told me the date, and without thinking about the fact that it was on a Wednesday, and I knew this event was on a Saturday, I just painted what she had said. On the way to school Monday morning, it hit me that it couldn't be the right date. So, I called to confirm that I was right, and she said that the date she gave me was the last day that the turtles could be adopted. Oh well, I went back yesterday afternoon and changed it in about 5 minutes. I blurred it out in these photos.
Gotta go grade papers! Hope to have a Luna Lovegood or a Fleur Delacour costume to show you after this weekend. That is, unless I decide to go to the Un. of TN football game Saturday. I don't normally miss those games, and I haven't made it to one, yet, this year, but, grandkids' Halloween costumes are more important!
