Instead of "Oh, no, snow!" my grandson said, "Yes! Snow!" His goal was to roll the biggest snowball possible.
Large, plowed 8-foot snowbanks turned into a place to body surf like a penguin, head first on his belly. I shuddered as he neared the blacktop - luckily, he arrived unscathed. I always tell the kids on slides, etc., feet first!
Congratulations to the cast and crew and all involved in Gibraltar High School's production of "Once Upon a Mattress" last weekend. We attended and it was well done and enjoyable.
Good job, students and teachers and others who helped.
Back to work
The first meeting of the season for the Door County Art League will be held at 7 p.m. Monday at the Gibraltar Fire Station on County F, near the intersection with County A. President Liz Heller released the meeting date and invites all including the public to come meet the new board members.
The speaker for the evening will be Karen De Noto, who is a prolific Door County plein air painter. Karen will critique any of your artwork that is in progress, so feel free to bring your work to the meeting; it can be in any medium.
She will also be speaking about how to judge your own work; how to know when it is done; what makes a good composition and what do judges look for when they are judging a show.
May's meeting will be May 28, with a potluck, and Denny Moutray will be the speaker with a topic on marketing our art.
Our condolences to the families of those who recently died, Art Witaliason, Marjorie Allingham, and Judy Berns. I picture Art with a handful of Walla-Walla onions, as he was a prolific gardener and kind neighbor.
Marjorie was such a good painter and martial arts instructor, and Judy I picture at her piano. We will miss them all.
