OK , now, be honest…when you saw the title, what was your first thought? Did you get all hot and bothered thinking of Yul Brynner? Or maybe Steve McQueen? Perhaps you went more for the evil Eli Wallach?
Or maybe you had a flashback to childhood and Snow White? (Can YOU name all seven dwarfs?)
Or maybe you have just read this blog , where Vivienne tagged me to pass on the tag to seven others whose art blogs I enjoy reading. Gee, Viv! You’ve already listed some of my regulars, but here goes:
Andrea shows some great art, from brush and lens and writes with wit.
Victoria does beautiful portraits, accompanied by very real stories, often featuring Jamaican life.
Cynthia is currently building up her ceramic artworks, but she’s talented in other disciplines, too!
Jenclair is not “just a quilter” but a prolific reader (see her book blog) and handy with the camera and has links to all sorts of interesting sites.
Ces and her blog-partner, Isabella (who lives in a Moleskin!) have a re-vamped blog.
Jana has watercolours,warmth and wit. A bit on the dreamy side… go see!
Tara is an all-round good sport! Her feet have barely touched the ground after her Italy trip and she’s agreed to this tag, with the proviso that her deadline (she’s a professional illustrator) comes first!Thanks, Tara.
So…that was the easy part of the tag. Now I have to come up with 7 facts about moi! This is the point where I hand the keyboard to my “ghost writer.” Josh-josh-josh! whistles the official whistle Here, boy!
what? you want me to do what? tell readers 7 interesting things about you? seven,you say…ooh,boy. this will take a whole boxful of crunchies and then some.
1. dinahmow is not her real name. but she thinks people will think she’s a dynamo.
2. she knows swear words in several languages and sometimes says them.
3. she says she will sing raunchy songs in a jazz bar when she is 70. she’d better start practising.
4. she has won prizes for writing limericks.
5. she has 31 teeth instead of 32.
6. she was an actress.
7. her initials are scratched on the wall of a castle in wales. she wont say which one.

Thank you, Josh. And thankyou, Vivienne for gracing me with the title”artist” which I take as a huge honour since I’m nobbut a poor scribbler,me. Thanks, too, to all the others who are participating.The grocer beckons…
