Ballerina Towel

This series of pics makes me laugh every time I look at it. Hope it brings a smile to your corner of the world too.

When Smudge comes for a sleepover I dig out this special towel for her to use. It was a gift to her mother from Auntie Audrey, many years ago. I thought it would be nice to get Smudge's picture with the towel, but when I asked her to stand beside it, she had to try and pose with her leg in the air.
I asked her to just stand up straight, but all she did was change feet, and put the other leg in the air.
By this time we were all laughing and Buppa thought he would get into the act too.
Through the laughter I asked Smudge to stand beside the towel, but not to put either foot in the air. Below is the picture that resulted.
OK, one last try, no feet or hands in the air please....and this is what I got.
Oh my she does make me laugh. I gotta admit that these pictures are much better than any old picture of her just standing there beside the towel. Way to go Smudgster, you did a good job.

I remember seeing that towel and thinking it was just the thing for one of my sisters, neither of whom had any yearning for ballerinadom, which actually was my thing. Funny how that works.

No wonder she cracks you up cuppa, I had to laugh out loud as I looked at the pictures. She sure is adorable....:-)Hugs

Bernie - these pics make me laugh out loud too. I just couldn't get her to stand up straight beside the towel. The last pose took the cake. You have to admit that no hands or feet are in the air though.
