Yes! Japhy and I have been hard at work for the past few nights working on a little number I like to call Trashy but Classy, ha! We actually settled on the title being "Pop Tart", you know like Pop Art? Get it? We listened to books on tape, the soundtrack to Tron and a collective of Jewish Jokes we checked out at the library.

We are excited and have tributed a few of the details to our dear friend Ana Bender who has just recently passed. We love you Ana and you are tattooed in our hearts. Other hilarious tattoos include a trashy horoscope sign (since the show falls under the sign Aquarius, we thought that appropriate), old sailor themes and some just for giggles.

Please stop by the 'dance' on Friday and see what the other ladies and their dates have come up with. With the passing of my dear sister, I may not be in attendance, but I send my love to all the painters, dates and guests that show.
