|Gypsy No. 2|
…A lady at one of our shows inquired who is the other Gypsy in the Two Twisted Gypsies… not knowing how to explain what seems like a long story, I held up the mannequin hand and went on to jokingly explain, “well there was an accident and um… this hand is all that’s left of my gypsy friend.”
As a small child I spent a lot of time with my grandparents. My grandfather seemed to work a lot, but when he was at home and I was lucky enough to spend time with him there was never a dull moment! When he wasn’t trying to teach me something new, he loved to tell me stories. One I am certain I probably believed for a while was that my parents ran into a gypsy caravan and that was how I came to be in the family. If I was bad he would threaten to have them come and pick me up! Sometimes I day-dreamed about what if they do come to get me? What might my life be like if I really was a gypsy… all the places I would travel, the strange and interesting people I might meet, all the jewelry I would wear. I remember playing dress up with my mothers jewelry sometimes putting on everything she had thinking I looked like a gypsy for sure! …Years later, sometime after his passing I learned that he also referred to my mother as his little gypsy when she was a small child. Longer story short…”Two Twisted Gypsies” was born.
