Dancers

Robbie took the photo of me sort of wearing my Cheshire Cat mask, and my sister Judy presented me with the three-inch tall dancing figure (which she, less notional than me, described as "a woman trying not to pee"). Sister and nephew are on their way to the airport to return to England.

More Alice tomorrow.

ha. What stands out the most to me is your attire, which I absolutely love. This is the most of your person that I've seen, so naturally I was drawn to that fact above all else. : - )

I am in agreement with your sister... the female figure is keeping her bladder at bay.

The Cheshire mask is delightful. Really.

Such a shame you couldn't have your sister and nephew for longer. I know when Megan visited me from Seattle i had all of these thoughts about hiding her airline tickets. Those things are expensive right? She'd have to stay for ages before she could afford to replace them :))

Great pictures.

The mask is so cool! And yes, that figure is less 'dancing' and more 'busting for a pee'!

It is fun to see your legs and feet! Now we know you're not just a "talking head." Great mask. And the figure: Is it carved or was it found this way? Pee squeezing? Yes is my vote. - Jeanne

The driftwood is a keeper 4 sure.

Too cute in the photo and your keds look as old as mine, although mine have peace signs all over them ; )

BTW, I'll send the link tomorrow.

Cheers!

Sometimes women when trying not to pee dance with very graceful movements: little jumps and extremely elegant & sexy contortions of the legs reveal the beauty of the femenine being, even in such an extreme situation. The pee dancer catches that wonderful essence. The woman behind the cat mask next to it shows, hiding & revealing herself at the same time, that that essence is inapprehensible. I also like the skirt, Susan, it´s very pretty and fits you perfectly. Nice dancing legs & hips!

Wonderful mask... I think that it had to make a litte travel to Chat et Essai, just to meet some friends !

Your cheshire cat is really happy and playful looking. (I always think that the Lewis Carroll version is rather malicious.)

I agree with your sister, though . . .

Love these latest 'Alice' themes again.

Really colorful mask! That figure reminds me of a trapeze artist!
