MISSION ACCOMPLISHED This is a picture of me presenting Mrs. Ann Shepley with the drawing of George Armstrong I did for her. I'm sure by now you're all aware of the backstory, so I won't go through all that, but what transpired today is a great story so I'll tell it. Her son contacted me about the drawing, and once I finished it we arranged for me to meet them. Mrs. Shepley and her son go bowling every Friday, so I went to the bowling alley and surprised her with it. She had no idea who I was or that anything was being done for her. When I told her about seeing her in the Windsor Star article and how her story inspired me to do a drawing, her face lit up. Then I handed her the drawing. I've never shaken someone's hand so many times in succession. It was great seeing her reaction, and after she finished her game of bowling we had lunch together. She had lots of great stories about meeting George Armstrong and we talked a lot about the Leafs. This ranks a close second to getting my drawing signed by Luke Schenn in Leafs' memories. What a great feeling it was to see and meet her, she is an inspiration to all of us Leafs fans.

George Armstrong Drawing I finally got around to finishing this drawing for Mrs. Ann Shepley. You may recall the online article in the Windsor Star about her, she is an 86 year-old Leafs fan with a love of George Armstrong. It was a fun drawing to do, it was the first time I'd worked from an old photo and I really enjoyed trying to recreate the old-time feel. GO LEAFS GO! *Special thanks once again to kidkawartha for invaluable guidance and advice, and to somny for posting the link to the Ann Shepley story that got this whole thing started.*
