Fun House Portrait



A rare self-portrait from the fun house at our county fair.  (OK yes, I do have big feet, and long toes.)  When I was teaching in Belgium a student once told me, "Mrs. Leady, you have foot fingers!"  Still, this is a bit much.  Maybe a little like Minnie Mouse, or maybe Olive Oyl.

Olive: "I'll take a three, but sixes feel soooo goooood!"

Popeye *measures her feet with his forearm*: "Grrrr...she'll take a 12."

I love it, great catch, love the photo along with Popeye & Olive Oyl's comments!! Think of the distances you can travel with those legs! You taught in Belgium, I love hearing that. Did you speak French or Dutch?
