  1. Can our Gerry get any more beautiful and famous?? AT LAst he is getting his just dues. He is getting so well know now that all I have to say is Gerard or Gerry Butler and everyone instantly knows who I am talking about. It feels soooooooooo good!! I totally love it. And to have people come up and see our statuette and instantly know it looks like Gerry is the greatest feeling to me as this is my very first ever statue. Of course, as time goes by and I do him more, he will get better.

    I am going to try and see if we can get someone with hands sorta' like Gerry's to make a bronze of his hands. That will be almosty totally impossible. But since I can't go to him and get his hands in plaster for the mold and he can't come here, I have to start looking at men's hands to try and get someone that just might be close!! That'll be the day!!! If I can do it, then they will also be for auction if approved and some lucky woman will get Gerry's hands to call her own. :pointy: My ultimate goal is a bust of Gerry in the future. I will be learning how to go about making one next semester and I will make my Grand daughter. That will give me the practice and then I will work on Gerry's head, over and over during the summer until I have him as perfect as possible. That sounds so goofy!! "work on his head"! :rotflmao::lmao:

    But as good as he looks right now as the statuette, I want him to look so good, he looks like you kiss him!!!!!! 'Course, I look at his pics and think that, so this had better be a darn good bust!!!

    Hugs All. And sorry for the absence. I have missed soooo much and so many!!

    Your Verra Busy,

    Jo :love:

  2. OMGosh,

    I have been missing out on soooooooooooo much because of school and guess what????....I'm going to do it all over again next semester!!! But the 'Gerry' Has come verr far. Look at him in the art section. But my sweet Kathy has been keeping me up on as much as possible while I polish and grind the man for the convention auction if he is accepted. I know sounds so awful!!! But I love the way he looks.

    I also love the interviews where Gerry seems to be talking to us or me, whatever the case may be. I also was floored by his remark that he hasd to depend on his "Personal;ity" for his role in RnR!! His personality is awesome. He is wonderful and so entrancing. He brings you right into his characters all the time. That is one of the qualities that attracted me to him and has kept me with him for going on 12 year this next year. His gorgeous eyes and beautiful face and his awesome to-die-for body not withstanding.

    But Thank You for this Becozy!! You Rock!!

  3. On my way to school and just stopped in to say HI!!

    Talk about a real artist!!!!!! The drawing of our G-Man is absolutely beautiful and so well done. You are a real artist '300' GAL!!

    I just love to do things with my hands and this came to my mind and I have had soooooo much fun doing it. A booklet will be made of the entire process from start to finish. One for Gerry and the other for the auction if approved. I am very excited at how this had turned out. Since it is my first ever, I just pray Gerry doesn't look at it and say, "that doesn't look like me"!!! I just pray he accepts it in the manner in which it has been made, for only him because we love him and are so very proud of him. He can put it up next to his Academy Award he will win next year. The man is incredibly, phenominal!! I am soooooooooooo proud of him.

    Off I Go!!!

  4. :wuv: Thank You Kathy,

    I am verra tired and am going to hit the bath and actually fix my hair for tomorrow. No 'Gerry' work on Thanksgiving. Just ornaments. School is closed 'til Monday!!

    I hope the pics are clear enough. I am by no means a pro, so I am unable to capture the true beauty of the work. These pics are very non-complimentary. 'Gerry' actually looks a lot better in person. But our Gerry looks a lot better in everyway possible and I hope he understands that this is my very first statue in my life and that I did my very best to capture his beautiful face and his awesome body as best as I was able. But nothing can ever be as beautiful and sexy and handsome and adorable as the "real" man himself. This truly will be our Academy Award to our man.

    Love and Thanks and a verra Happy Thanksgiving to All my Gals. :wuv:

  5. Rutger Hauer has played a vampire in a movie - did you ever see Buffy the Vampire Slayer? I loved that movie!

    Cheers,

    Vicki

    The heck with the movie, did anyone other than me get into Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the series? I am absolutely in love with it. I have all of the show on DVD and pretty much cycle through the seasons constantly! I thought David Boreanaz playing Angel was one of the sexiest vampires ever! Dare I say he even makes the violence sexier than Gerry? It's close... :duck:

    Steph

    Hey Steph,

    My Daughter got me interested in "Buffy" when I came to live with her after my stroke and we would sit together and watch a few episodes every few nights. It was wonderful and I really got caught up. We have all the series DVD's as well. She loves to collect series. But my heart still belongs to Gerry as Dracula. Not saying the others are not right up there, but I am so totally in love with this incredible man, that I am a wee bit blind to other actors.

    Joanna

  6. :wave: OMG!!!

    I haven't been here in a while. I am soooooooo sorry!! I brought 'Gerry' home today to finish polishing him up and fileing down his boots and I'll start working on the marble bases for him. He is so heavy, I have a hard time carrying him. About 30 or more pounds of bronze and that's not the marble either. I just stopped for a rest from the day and just had to check e-mails before I get busy on 'Gerry'.

    I loved Gerry as Dracula because he was so gorgeously handsome!! Well, that's not all, but he made Dracula seem almost adorable!! That beautiful curly hair and those beautiful green/blue eyes. Dear Lord, if Gerry put his hand out to me to make me a vampire, you had better know I would run into those gorgeous arms as fast as I could run and I can't run!!!! I loved the way he would tilt his head when he encountered something he never knew about before in his day. And I will always love that walk through the music store!! The man is truly, totally and awesomely incredible. Lord in heaven help me, I love this incredible man waaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy tooooooooo much!!!

    Just talking about him like this and seeing him in my minds eye gives me goosbumps of pure pleasure. I am also a very great lover of Alex O'Loughlin and David Boreanaz. They were both pretty awesome vamps.

    Well, enough of a break. Back to work on the 'Gerry'!

    Hugs to all and I'll be back as I can. Sooooooooooooo much work, sooooooooo little time. I AM TIRED!!!!!!

  7. HI My GALS!!

    I have a special Thank you and Hi for Benedicte' and I have a letter for you to be mailed with your Christmas gift. So don't think I have ever forgotten you. I'll have Suzy translate your French message. It's good practice for her. And even more important, GET WELL MY BEAUTIFUL BENEDICTE. :kiss:

    Sue, I am sooooo happy to see you posting again. I am the one that is so lax. But my excuse is 'Gerry'. I will go to school tomorrow with my Dremel and new parts to get our 'Gerry' cleaned up and have Jim break off two pieces of marble for our 'Gerry's' base so I can start smoothing them out and getting them put together to be drilled for setting 'Gerry' on. I am so happy to see you on my computer as well!!

    Frannie, I am soooooo sorry to be so far behind in my prayers for your wee Grandson. Please forgive me, you know I would never, ever forget you and yours. You are too special to me, and not just for my awesome siggy which BTW still gives me goose bumps of pure pleasure!! Prayers begin immediately!!

    All my special GALS deserve a special personal note and I apologize right now for not being able to do that at this moment!! If you ALL weren't there to encourage me and keep me going, this could never be a 'happening'!! I just pray our Gerry doesn't look at the statue and think, "This doesn't look like me!!!" But I am as sure as I can be, he will know in his heart that we love him and that this is our way of showing him everytime he looks at it!!!

    And never the last and positively NEVER the least, my special Kathy, without whom I would be soooooooo far behind on the Gerry scene, that it could be considered a positive SIN!!! Kathy has sent me all the updates and interviews and kept me in the KNOW!!

    I am making ornaments and blankets and getting myself ready to spend the day at school tomorrow and possibly Friday until our 'Gerry' looks as good as possible. I will warn you, his kilt is a wee bit shorter than the one you see him in at Glasgow!! But time was running short and he had to have longer legs, so I opted to do his legs longer and couldn't get the time to lenghten his kilt!!!!!!!!! But I figure some of the GALS would like him to have a shorter kilt than the one he had on in GLasgow!! :woo: Sorry, no anatomically correctness allowed!!!!! :drool: DARN!!!! But my Kathy makes me feel so good by sending me Gerry news that I can very quickly see and still enjoy while on the run. I am home today to finish ornaments and pack them up to take and mail out on the 3rd of December. Kathy knows that if I don't pack them correctly, they get squashed and shattered. Her wonderful hubby has given me valuable advice on the packing and I am using it!!

    SO, THANK YOU ALL, EVERY SINGLE LADY HERE FOR ALL THE BEAUTIFUL WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT AND KUDOS ON THIS "LABOR OF LOVE!!!. :kiss:

    Your Joanna

  8. Now I like what Steph said. "A damn good action star"!! That our man is climbing so high after such hard work, is awesome. I love Gerry getting mentioned in such a complimentary way. He is damn good at all the roles he does. But that's the incredibly entrancing way about him. He can make you feel his characters, no matter who he plays. Gerry has become known now as the consumate actor and soon, he will be given his due by being known for all his abilities and characters. I personnaly feel that Gerry has always been number one in my book, but some people need more time to see what we see and have to have the proverbial brick wall fall on them. But my first glimpse of this incredible man with that awesome voice and that dazzling smile gave me shivers of delight and the intense desire to get more of him. Gerry as Archie made me have my very first movie star crush in my entire life at the age of 54!!!! But there is that incredible something that we really can't put an absolute name to that Gerry has. But he sure has a whole lot of it!!! And I love him for having it!!! I will always be Gerry's Joanna forever 'til I die!

    Love Ya Gerry,

    Your Joanna

  9. Mornin',

    I'm on my way to school to take more pics of 'Gerry' in another process of his coing to life as a bronze statue. Thought I'd check out what's been going on while I have been in the art world. I have voted for the few people that I like and the one person that I love, and now I want to know how often we can vote for our Gerry without it being "illegal"? I will vote as often as allowed while I am home, so please let me know!!

    More pics of our G-Man will be on the art section later this afternoon!! Enjoy!!

    Hugs To All,

    Jo

  10. Oh Yeah!!!

    I can't remember who #1 was either and that's how un-forgetable he was to me in compaison to Gerry!! I agree with Matreshka as well. Gerry made me feel for the villain. If he had put his hand out to me that way, I would have run as fast as I could into his arms!! And I can't run!!!! LOL, LOL, LOL, LOL!!!!

    The man is incredible! Absolutely everything about Gerry is entrancingly wonderful!! He has that ability to make you not only feel his characters, but BE the character. The man is the ultimate actor, bar none in my book!!

    Oh and by the way, Welcome Matreshka to GALS. The most fun to be had on the computer. Awesome ladies here and very caring and kind!! I love it here.

    Joanna

  11. For me there is no contest as to who is the sexiest Dracula, heck, who is the sexiest man in this universe!! Our incredible Gerry!! Gerry's portrayal was so awesome and his head movements, ie: on the plane when he seems confused by the bullets and then when he sees the big screen with the partially nekkid girls and the screaming band, I love his look! But I think Gerry is awesome as Dracula and I still vote him #1!!

    Joanna

  12. where can i get a list of all the ladies who are going to be there? (and their room numbers)

    Ahh Mike...you just have to hand out numbers LOL

    yeah, even better idea. i will ask the front desk for 100 copies of a key to MY room and we will put one each in the "welcome" goodie bags!

    NOW THAT ALONE IS WORTH COMING TO VEGAS FOR!!!! :funnyup::drool1:

    Joanna

  13. Me arse is going to try and be there this next year with our 'Gerry' for auction!! Otherwise, 'Gerry' will be there anyway!! He is in his last stage before the bronze pour and I am totally exhausted from meeting deadlines!!! But Gerry is on his way to becoming immortalized in bronze!!! Like he needs anymore immortalization!!!

    I am sooooo excited, I hope my savings will allow me to pay total at one time. I'll let you know when I talk to my daughter tomorrow!!

    I am looking forward to being with my GALS at last!!

    Joanna

  14. A verra quick HI!!!

    Just got home from school and I am exhausted but happy!!! Did four coats of silica on our man and he is beginning to look like a long white bunch of sand!! Dipping and coating has to be done by Friday afternoon and you can only do the procedure every four hours. Sooooooooo.........needless to say, I am going to bed to get up early to go back to school and do 'Gerry' four times tomorrow and twice on Friday and then............................YAYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!! Our man is on his way to becoming immortalized in bronze!!!!! As if he needs any more immortalization!! I am soooo happy, there are no words to describe my happiness. I truly Thank my Kathy for helping me with the pics on line and I truly Thank You as well Sue, and April, for your praise. It means so much to me. I am sorry I have been so absent from the site, but the time element for this project was terribly tight!! But our beautiful man is coming to fruition soon!!!

    I Love You All,

    Jo zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  15. Busy day with the 'Gerry' tomorrow. Today I am finishing a few ornaments for a few GALS and want to get them out asap. Am also making ornaments for the 1st Annual Birthday Celebration in Chicago for our Gerry!! I am so excited to be going, and finally get to meet some of the Gerry women!! More pics of the 'Gerry' will be on soon!!

    Hugs Everyone and Thank You all for the wonderful words of encouragement!!

    Jo

  16. Joanna, god has blessed you with great talent. The statue is fantastic. Cant wait to see the finished product.

    Sorry Sweet CassieGz,

    I mistook you for a different Cassie. But I sure wish you were coming to the party too!!!

    Thanks for the encouragement!!

    Joanna

  17. Joanna, god has blessed you with great talent. The statue is fantastic. Cant wait to see the finished product.

    Thank You Cassie. I can hardly wait to meet you on the 24Th. We are going to have so much fun. And I have wanted to meet you for two years!!! Now, we will have to get together more often. I am so excited!!!

    'Gerry' looks better today and I will take some pics, but my arm is hurting and it's hard for me to type right now. But I wanted to Thank You for the compliment. It makes me feel sooooo good!

    Hugs Gal,

    Jo

  18. HI!!!!

    A quick note. 'Gerry' is coming along much better. He is in proportion and his boots are bigger and his right arm is on with hisa sword. I burned my right arm very badly and cannot put it down to type as it sits on the burn and it sorta kinda hurts a lot!! But I am still finishing the 'Gerry' and he will be smoothed out tomorrow at school with the kerosene. Can't do that here as it smells too much and is hard on my daughter, sto that process will take place a school and then the second statue for the auction will be started. It won't take as long as I will be making it smaller and I sort of know what the heck I am doing now!!! You know, practice makes perfect!! And what a man to practice on!!! :woo: Do totally believe me, this is truly a labor of love!!!! This burn is 3" long and on the underside of my arm and it hurts so much, I wish I could be a baby and cry!! But that won't help. So I just keep it open at home asnd cover it at school. It will be okay, I'm just whineing!! (sp) :needhug:

    Okay, back to work. I will have this statue done today or else. His head and body look so good, I can hardly wait to see it in bronze, on a white marble stand!! "Gerry' is looking good!!

    Hugs Everyone!! :wuv:

    Jo

  19. I'm sorry Gerry!! I have no 'earth'while words to say to you that could ever come close to how happy and beautiful you make me feel just by being you!! I will try by saying Thank You for your voice that brought me to you so long ago and your adorable face that entranced me and your dazzling smile that made my heart fall in love with you when I saw you smile!! I thought it was twelve years ago and my Grand Baby says it was only 10 years ago early this year and it will be eleven the beginning of next year! But to tell the truth, it seems like I have never not loved you. You have given me countless hours of viewing pleasure and given me many, many friends that have grown to be very important to me in my life. For all you have given me just by being magnificent, incredible you, I truly THANK YOU forever and for always, and wish you very HAPPY BIRTHDAY, and wish we were there!!!

    Your Lil' Joanna :wuv:

  20. Thanks GALS,

    'Gerry' is looking better as of today. I enlarged his boots to be more in proportion to his legs and body. His left arm is being re-aligned and my friend Lambert touched up 'Gerry's' mouth yeterday as well. He is going to be awesome. He doesn't look so good in black wax and taking photos are difficult being as the flash shines off the wax and distorts the impact of the true features of him. But he will be finished tomorrow and his right arm with his sword will be attached as well. Hopefully the second one will be started Friday and finished in a week. It should be much easier as I have the first one to work from and he was the hardest! But I will go to school everyday 'til the second one is finished. I am so excited by this project that is finally coming to fruition. It's been a very hard and long climb to make this come into being for this wonderfuly, incredible man. I am so proud of him and am looking forward to more good things coming from him!!! I will post pics of the "finished" wax figure on the weekend!!

    Hugs All,

    Jo

  21. :wave:

    Kathy just told me about this section and I just wanted to say Thank You so much for the feed back and I am ecstatic to see My Earth Angel back on. I am sorry I have been so busy doing 'Gerry' and making afghans for all my family and friends and I have a beautiful baby afghan being readied for someone very special in my life and her new grandson, Finn!!!! Kathy received hers and she is having a tough time hanging on to it 'till Christmas!! LOL,LOL,LOL!!! I am also getting ready to do ornaments for my GALS that I owe them to and that is going to be done soon as I get finished with 'Gerry' and he is prepped and begun to be dipped for the pour. Then it's full out on ornaments and blankets.

    Please understand as you look at 'Gerry', he is still far from being ready. I have to enlarge his boots to be in proportion to the rest of his body. I will attach his other arm and sword after I smooth him out with the kerosene when I can get the time alone. But do please believe me, he will be as perfect as possible and I already know Gerry will never find fault with the statuette as he is not that kind of person. I also have found two perfect booklets for the process to be recorded. I will start putting them together after the New Year when I will have scads of time. But right now, it's all about 'Gerry'. I am a wee bit proud of what he is beginning to look like. He looks kinda weird in black wax but when he is poured in bronze, and mounted on white marble and polished like gold, he will be awesome as the real Gerry is!! Well, almost as awesome as the real Gerry!! But I asked Kathy to put the nearing to finish pics on so everyone could get an idea of what to expect and start saving their money. He is already over 10" high and he will be on a white marble base. So he will be heavy. And the booklet will be leather and have all the pics and all the explanations of the 'Gerry' statuettes 'life' along the way including pictures. All acknowledgements of all who helped me will also be in the booklet and the place where he was made will also be pictured and explained. The actual pouring of 'Gerry' will also be in the booklet and that alone is very exciting to see.

    Thank You all so much for the encouragement in this phenominal undertaking and the patience you have all given me. This truly is a total "Labor of Love" and I am so glad I a can give our Gerry something to thannk him for being such and awesome and incredible man in all ways, not just as an actor, but as the most HUMAN actor ever.

    Love Yal All,

    Jo

  22. :wave: Mornin',

    I sure hope that our awesomly incredible man remembers how he said, "At the end of the day what matters is that you do your best in every job you do." Because when he gets his statue, I hope he will remember, I didn't have "HIM" to copy from, only a bazillion pics!!

    But soon, 'he' will be a reality!!! I am trying so hard for our man and his charities and to make my Dr.M and Susan~ and all the rest of my GAL friends proud to have a piece that looks as much like our man as possible. Pics will be on soon, of the prepared statue in black wax ready to be preped for the silicone sealing and bronze pouring. All procedures will be included in the booklet!! But in my own mind, I think the statue looks pretty darn good and a lot of the students and a few of the older students as well, have commented that it looks as much like Gerry as possible without having him himself to work from!!

    I am soooo excited to be doing this small thing for our site and I am soooo very proud to be a member of GALS and truth be told, I am very happy with being here.

    This may not belong here, but it just came over me to say what I was thinking!! Sorry if it's in the wrong place.

    Hugs to All, and have a great day!!

    :archie: 's Ocean Gal Forever, Joanna

  23. If that astrological profile is right, Gerry does sound like quite a challenge. I believe I'm up to the task. Quick, someone send him my way. :D

    Steph

    If I see him I'm gonna try to send him your way...Can I give him a kiss before leaving him all to you? :wuv:

    If that astrological profile is right, which I hope not, my life with Gerry would be a real hell... I hope

    it was totally wrong, ehehehe :cloud9:

    Hey GAL!!

    Your "pic" is just fine!! Gerry looks fantabulous as usual. Hard to mess up a damn good looking man!!
