WestSpringA
Let’s face it, all of October is about Halloween. This Halloween WestSpringAAparty in Western Springs was already on the first weekend of October. And what a production it was! How extravagant was it? Let us count the ways: a DJ under a wooden structure especially built for this day, outdoor tables & chairs for at least fifty (over a hundred came), a team caterers serving mountains of food, decorations floor to ceiling, a rodeo bouncy, an acrobat & fire eater, an expert magician, a Michael Jackson impersonator who did his stunning numbers in several costume changes and, of course, caricatures by me, wearing a pink witches hat. Truly spectacular. Thank you, Diana!

At that party in Western Springs, I had the feeling I might be in 13AldrichMaggie13AldrichEmmathe company of Olympic hopefuls.  I’d like to highlight two of these here, a gymnast and a jumper.

13AldrichGroup1500

After everyone has been drawn at a party, especially for teens and if one of the parents is an avid photographer, there’s often a call for a group shot.  All right, everybody, can we have you all  holding up your drawing for a photo op!  Oh, and would the artist like to join in?  Sure, love to.  This happens often and I usually just join the line and smile.  But this time, I hopped on the kitchen counter—careful not to get my pink DKNY sneakers on the gleaming Granite—and really hammed it up.  Hey, I was inspired by all that talent around me. I’ve been inspired many times before, of course, but this kitchen counter hop is a first.  Thanks again, Jay, great fun!

13AldrichGirl2BIG

In two hours I drew fifteen young women,  all highly talented and poised.  There were the la cross players and there were the 13AldrichGirl2writers/musicians and both camps mingled gracefully.  One tall blonde played the French Horn in a Chicago orchestra and her sport was jumping hurdles, oh, she said she could clear five-and-a-half feet.  This was an inspiring, energetic, intelligent crowd.  I loved the company.  Thank you, Jay.  Happy Birthday, Sara!
