Bengals and Derby!!!
Here's great news today: Kelli Bickman has put up a shop with prints, magnets, totes, notebooks and other Goodies of the Bengal Tree Painting she did for me last year!
You can find it HERE!
AND 50% of the profits will go straight to Great Lakes Bengal Rescue. (The other 50% to the artist, I have the painting, and that's more than enough for me) So if you're looking to do a little Shopping for the Holidays, and the Bengals make you happy, you might consider a Wee Something. For a Someone. Or yourself. And help out Bengals at the same time.
This week is exciting as at the end of it I am going to Indianapolis to see my first ever Derby Bout! Live and in person. Naptown Roller Girls vs Chicago.
Look! A Handy Poster I stole off the web! Art by Aaron Scamilhorn. (I would credit the photographer too, but can't seem to find that info, here in my morning Stalking)
I've seen this sport for a while now in the Internet, and have been lucky enough to get to meet a lot of women who play Derby. All of whom seem convinced it is only a matter of time before I take up this sport myself. I love skating, and am not half bad at it. These skaters are very, very good tho. And very, very FIT.
I want that too. There's art in skating too. Or an art TO skating. Derby has a beauty all of its own. Like dance. Only they hit harder.
Seeing Derby LIVE and up close and personal, as I've been promised, may decide the issue.
I think I know the answer.
Thanks Guys. See you Friday.
Love and Derby,
