Cowart's Common Room
I CAN'T SLEEP CHAT POST

Another lovely sunny day here in Norfolk, I do hope the weather where you are had you sitting out enjoying the sunshine when you had enough time to do so.

Just had a lovely email from some friends in Estonia, along with some wonderful photo's of their new baby. They have much snow over there at the moment.

Happy St Patrick's Day.!

Just off to make a cuppa, see you later.

If you can't sleep and there are others on line then have a natter here.

Night Night, & Sweet Dreams.

Re:
Frances's Avatar Estonia, is there no limit to the parts of the globe with which we connect?

Still quite cool here today, and I do hope that tomorrow will be warmer for the big parade.

I was in slow mode today, returning books to the library and picking up a new one, grocery getting, laundry taken care of, even dusted and got the vacuum (hoover) out.

I did some more more drawing in my sketchbook, and am beginning to think I might have reconnected my left hand with my eye.

Hoping that someone on the site might have some lavender to share with the lovely Snapdragon.

Re
Camilla's Avatar Hello Frances and Tiggy.

It is wonderful the science of technology so that I could receive email, their written english is almost non-existent, and I am not fluent with Estonian language.

Hope the sun shines tomorrow for you Frances for the big brigade, maybe we will be fortunate enough in seeing some grand pics by your trusted camera.

You are left-handed Frances, me too, just wish I could sketch like you.

Oh, have not seen the post re Lavender Frances.

Re:
Frances's Avatar Lavender post is just above this one, Camilla.
Snapdragon (Jane) is a wonderfully creative lady, and I think that somewhere on this site must be someone who has got some lavender for her. You can also link to her blog on Pipany's page.

Left-handed folks are the best! I smile every time I see our new President sign something. He does that surrounding the page maneuver for his handwriting. I just keep my hand below the line being written, and always risk the big smuge. Always smudge when drawing, but that's okay.

Re:
Tiggywinkle's Avatar Hi Camilla and Frances. I'm left -handed too. Lovely weather here, had a great time gardening all day. What a clear up after the Winter! Will move on to the back garden tomorrow. Happy St. Patricks Day. You know it's a bigger celebration in America than here. Spent one in North Carolina.

Re:
Puffin's Avatar I am left handed too,but was taught to write with my right.
I do a lot of things backward,so Bob thinks as he is very right handed.
I use both quite well-like eating and typing,etc.
Sorry to be late posting and I will be back-
Blues Brother's Movie on the tele-
Some big stars in it Cab Caloway A. Franklin to name a few.
See you all later.

Re:
Tiggywinkle's Avatar My goodness, the left handed brigade. I was forced to write with my right hand in school. It's not done anymore. I'm amazed with the links between us all. I posted in the homework forum to-day in a rush, and went back in to-night to have a read, to find Sc and I had chosen 3 out of 5 of the same roles. Extraordinary. Frances, didn't realize Barach Obama was left handed. I know several people who write like that.

Re:
Frances's Avatar Hello Tiggy and Puffin.

Yup. Lots of lefthanded folks. John MacInroe ... tennis. Paul MacCartney and many other musicians.

Your gardening activities are making me so jealous! I will at least be able to walk across the Park tomorrow on the way to the Parade, and will try to take some photos to show spring in on the way.

I agree with you, Tiggy, that there are lots of links amongst the folks on this site.

Re:
Frances's Avatar Camilla,

I forgot to write about Judy Collins when you put up a video recently. She lives nearby and I have often seen her around the neighborhood.

But...way back in 1967 when I was in college in Virginia, one of the students from New York knew Judy C, and convinced her to come to do a concert at our school. This was way, way before she reached her major fame.

Judy blue eyes, indeed. She is a great interpreter of many others' songs, and has written some good tunes herself.

Sleep well Tiggy, night night.

Re
Camilla's Avatar I have seen the way the President writes with his left hand, but I too write the way like you Frances. Do you find that when you go into a bank the pen attached to piece of string is always positioned on the right. Also would be nice to have a left-sided cheque book.

Re
Camilla's Avatar Thank you Frances, it was our dear Puffin who introduced me to Judy Collins music, she does have a lovely voice slightly similar to another female vocalist who used to sing with a male vocalist whose name escapes me now.

Re
Camilla's Avatar I think it was The Carpenter's.

Re
Camilla's Avatar Hello Puffin,

I write with my left, but use scissors with my right, some things I am able to do with both hands.

Enjoy the movie Puffin, is that original Blue's Brother's of the sixties.?

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. Hoping to find lots to photograph and to post.

Re:
Puffin's Avatar Hi folks I'm back

How interesting about Judy Collins living near you Frances.
Another of her video's-- nice treat.
We have a lot of her CD's.
Seems like we do all have a lot in common.
I had 2 tutor's before I coluld learn to write.
One thing I can't do with Bob is paddle a boat-he says I do it backwards and I say he is wrong.
Sleep tight everyone-
Sweet dreams Camilla
Now to enjoy the video
xxx Puffin

Re
Camilla's Avatar I have PM you Puffin, thank you.

I would be hopeless in a boat, can't row, and not only that I always get sick on boats

Enjoy the video Puffin, night night, sweet dreams, see you tomorrow.
