Illustration Friday - I Spy

The obvious....'I spy with my little eyes'....it was something my sister and I always played during road trips. My boys are still way too young for this game but they are pretty observant.

I also thought of my grandmother because when they were living in Australia they lived in the inner city and in a beautiful Victorian house adjacent to an old corner pub. Back then it was way before the police got tough on drink driving laws so most Friday nights my granny would spy through her curtains if there was comotion spilling out of the pub....sometimes drunks would stubble across the street and steal fruit from her front garden!
