Recently I had the pleasure of attending an old school, "Hole In The
Wall" party... What a hoot! What a much-needed uplift! Great band, lots
of wonderful food, traditional seafood and chicken buffet, and
alternative fare including thick sliced bologna and cheese, white bread,
pickled eggs, pickled pig feet, old time red link sausage, Moon Pies,
Honey Buns, NEHI Orange and Grape sodas, small Cokes and Pepsi's (no
diet, please). Folks who came were all ages, but mostly in their
60's and 70's, some older, fewer younger. They showed up in stretch
pants, tight jeans, dashikis, jumpsuits, big afro wigs, wheel chairs,
walkers, canes and of course, High Heel Sneakers. "Security" guys in
black T-shirts handled the awarding of door prizes, through random
drawing, to at least 30 people - quart mason jars of (legit) Moonshine.
There was even a Soul Train line. I thought I saw a James Brown cape on
someone's shoulders on the dance floor. Dancing got so heavy at one
point that one lady passed around the BenGay to those in need. There
was a posthumous appearance by "Prince", who led a rousing rendition of
"Purple Rain", complete with dimmed house lights and purple glow sticks
waving throughout the audience. Everyone left there at 10:00 when the
lights turned on - GRINNING.
If you want to comment here, USE NO NAMES, please... it was that kind of party."
When I retired as a college mathematics instructor, I couldn't wait to further explore the possibilities of being a full time artist. I started painting in watercolors in 2002 and I fell madly in love with it. Sometimes, I even paint in my sleep! I hope you enjoy looking at my art.
