Thunderbird Sketch

I'm always procrastinating.  Today I'm procrastinating about getting ready for our trip.  We are taking AMTRAC to St. Louis and driving to our son's in Kentucky for Thanksgiving.  Should be interesting.

I used the usual stuff for sketching for Scavenger Hunt 428.  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?p=20654859&posted=1#post20654859

Number 5, sleek - Gene's Thunderbird
Number 6, roll - of tape

Gene won the 1965 Thunderbird at a raffle to benefit The Bugle Boy a few years ago.  It has been fun to have and now they are having fundraisers to get a new roof and more.  Gene donated the car back to them to help with the roof.  So a sketch to say, "Adios, T-Bird."

Gene's "sleek" Thunderbird.

Gene is a big softie.

Bag Blog, my smile today. Gene is a softie and big hearted for a guy that has 1/3 of his heart out of commission!

Nice that you two donated it back. I'm sure it will raise a lot of money. Sounds like a fun trip...I'd be sketching away on the train. Have a safe trip.

Jo Castillo said...

Thanks, Joan. We will be safe and have fun. I'm sure I will sketch. :)
