"Luau Sketches... The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly!" Number Two!

Boss lady, Mrs. Lee, laughed when she saw this sketch...
Well, I started to cringed when the president of the club came by to see me sketching her... in all her Hawaiian regalia. The word had gotten around a couple of days before that the ever vivacious and witty woman from Brooklyn with the "yat"attitude" was gonna don on some "Don Ho." 

And did she ever!

From the flowered anklets up to a grass skirt that hid her ample waistline, but only highlighted the "D" sized coconut bra, Mrs. Lee posed and bowed for pictures as she glided through the aisles filled with her many adoring subjects! Her ever present microphone became a scepter, waving it high in the air, pretending she was blessing the congregation with "holy water!"

I think all those, dressed in colorful Hawaiian print shirts and Bermuda shorts, appreciated the fact that the "Queen of 'da Hula World" actually wore a pink tank top behind the ample and color filled leigh. Lee played it up in fine fashion, and all the members there, ate it up. And speaking of eating things up, when she arrived to the front of the stage, to read the minutes, take care of some business, then, say grace and address the red, white and blue, someone yelled out,"Okay Lee, when do we eat?"

She chuckled as she inquired,"Has everyone that wanted to take a picture of 'da pig wit the apple in its mout, done 'dat?"

"Okay, she said, beginning to speak the opening words of Grace Before Meals...

"Bless us, Oh Lord, and these Thy gifts...!"

"Indeed," I thought to myself... "Indeed!"
