Staying in Touch –

at a safe distance!

Well it is time to reveal who the Blond Butterball is.

The interview with “Butterball” had some technical problems so the sound quality is not the best but I hope you can still enjoy learning more about butterball and her art.

There’s also is a chance to win one of six “Crazy Cats” 2021 Calendars.  Just watch the video and answer the following questions:

1. Where in Scotland did “Butterballs” mother come from?

2. What was the little boy in the park looking at?

3. What was the shape of the canvases used for the “Ring” paintings

Send the answers to danceaday@rscdsottawa.ca and if you have the correct answers and are one of the first six to reply, a calendar will be sent to you.

Some of us arose early from bed very early on a May morning in 2016 and made our way to Parkdale United Church to appear on CTV Ottawa’s Morning Show. We have a clip of one of the 4 segments we filmed that day. (Lots of coffee was consumed in the making of the segments)

Some of you may have already seen the video of Sinead and John Kerr’s Scottish Figure Skating. I have included the same dance done a year later at the Euro Skating Championship Gala. Hope you enjoy.

And finally some quotes from Grandchildren about their Grandparents.  I know we are all looking forward to being able to have them in our houses and most of all hugging them again.

Stay Well.

My young grandson called the other day to wish me Happy Birthday. He asked me how old I was, and I told him, 72. My grandson was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, “Did you start at 1?”
My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, “Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?” I mentally polished my halo and I said, “No, how are we alike?” “You’re both old,” he replied.
A little girl was diligently pounding away on her grandfather’s word processor. She told him she was writing a story.
“What’s it about?” he asked.
“I don’t know,” she replied. “I can’t read.”

Grandpa is the smartest man on earth! He teaches me good things, but I don’t get to see him enough to get as smart as him!

My Grandparents are funny, when they bend over, you hear gas leaks and they blame their dog.
A grandmother was telling her little granddaughter what her own childhood was like. “We used to skate outside on a pond. I had a swing made from a tire; it hung from a tree in our front yard. We rode our pony. We picked wild raspberries in the woods.” The little girl was wide-eyed, taking this all in. At last she said, “I sure wish I’d  known you sooner!”
