Oh To Be A Dinosaur!!
Todays "Colour Me July!" piece sees me coming over a wee bit Dr Seuss.
In the 1970's I was given a Dr Seuss book as a hand me down from my cousins. It was called 'Green eggs and ham'.
I took an instant dislike to it!
I didn't like the storyline - I didn't like the art work. I didn't like the garish colours - I didn't like the pestering Sam-I-Am character.
There was however, something that compelled me to return again and again to it, and each time Sam-I-Am would be there asking if Joey (who I assume is supposed to be the reader) would like green eggs and ham.
And on each visit I would warm a little more to him and his 'delicacy'.
Eventually Joey does sample some of Sam-I-Am's wares, and he really likes them.
Which I guess is what happened to me, as it became one of my favourite books.
So, in honour of this magical book, here is a little dinosaur of mine as I imagine Dr Seuss would have drawn him.

Have a creative day, and see ye tomorra!
