Rattus: OLD MAN, where are your swim trunks? Where are your BOOTS?

Tea Rat: This is a POOL PARTY TO THE MAX old man! JUMP IN!

Rattus: You are exploring rather wavy waters there old thing...you even have a different texture to yourself..what happened to your skin?

Tea Rat: That woman who draws me is trying her hand at WATER COLOURS. I say, I feel rather liberated! JUMP IN!

Rattus: I have to say old man, you do things in a grandiose manner. MINIMALIST is certainly NOT your middle name!

Tea Rat: Quite the contrary. My middle name is MAXIMUS!

Rattus: After all these years old fellow, that we have studied together, roomed together, taken tea together, I never knew that. TEA RAT MAXIMUS.......

I say, WHAT IS YOUR LAST NAME old man?

Hello Sweet Anita...
Oh I have my swimsuit, my flip flops, and my pink hat. Look out here I come. I love swimming, is there anything more liberating that a cool dip in the pool?

I will bring a cheese and cracker plate with me. Nothing but the best for you Tea Rat. Thanks for the wonderful invitation.

Anita sweetie, love your water color painting. You are so creative sweet friend. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Many hugs and SO much love from Phoenix, Sherry

Tea Rat: What's my last name? Surely you're just jesting, junior.

Rattus: What is this, the Catskills?

Tea Rat: Cats kill? Not all of them. One of my best friends is a cat.

Rattus: And you're bragging this?

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Tea Rat: Is your mind also going with your back old man? Don't you remember that thing with the guy and the place? Surely you remember that cat? Wow, I am going to need to keep my eye on you....

Jacqueline said...

Get ready, cuz Gretta is gonna float...belly up soon, very soon when she gets brave enough! She is a little bottom heavy but she may even do a handstand under water.

Speaking of water, Anita, I can see you with paint brush and watercolors in front of you. Your tongue swinging left and then right...to make Tea just perfect, for all to see!

The Dutchess said...

Yes, the many colours of water...You found out how this magic works...its the colour of your heart I can see in all your drawings..Wonderful art work my dear...!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

I AM LOVING this water colouring journey! I am NOT or never was a colorist in my drawings, but that aqua blue is making me very happy! THANK YOU ALL!
