#1 THE ORIGAMI CALENDAR CHALLENGE – THAT WASN’T!

DSC05859 As I said yesterday, the origami challenge when to the dogs this weekend.  Instead of a challenge the calendar wasted two days with B.S. trivia about a record store I’d never want to visit. Faithful to my mission I spent the weekend foldings puppies and dogs. For today I did another Mlle. Renee … DSC05861

Notice I used a golden-brown paper closer to her natural color.

Yes, I went to Michaels to restock my dwindling origami papers and wiggle eyes. I haven’t looked yet, but hopefully the calendar will have a challenge for Monday.

UKELELE IKE … Clifton A. Edwards was born in Hannibal, Missouri in 1895. He moved to Saint Louis when he was 14 where he sang and played the ukulele in the local saloons. He moved on to the vaudeville circuits and eventually played on Broadway in the Ziegfeld Follies and other Broadway musicals. He was an early recording star and his 1929 recording of  Singin’ In The Rain was #1 on the pop charts for three weeks. He was a star of stage, screen, radio, television and the recording industry. He died in poverty in 1971 and his unclaimed body was donated to a medical school. His best remembered film roles were the unseen dying soldier in Gone With The Wind and the voice of Jiminy Cricket in Pinnochio. His 1940 recording of WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2002.
