~There was a little girl who just had to know, about every little thing, everywhere she’d go! Girls need to understand things the Why, the How, the Who, little girls are curious – it’s just what we do! * Growing up to be mysterious or so it seems to men. The truth is we stay curious, the What, the Where, the When! * living life and loving the things we do the best, Well, and staying curious for knowledge is our quest! My case I therefore rest! *
~ Penny L Howe, 2013
Today is Thursday so it’s Time Out for Art over at Zebra Designs and Destinations! I drew a curious little girl and wrote a poem to go with it! I hope you enjoy, thank you!

AnElephantCant always reply twice
Although lovely Penny posts her great poem again
He may be trunk-tied
But one thing he can’t hide
He feels exactly the same now as he did way back when…
I am happy to see that, going back 6 years, my alter ego had as little idea about the working of a lady’s mind as I have today.
Although I do know one thing about you, sweet Penny, that I will never tell anyone.
Your poem is fabulous, of course, and full of truth, but that is no secret, your writing always is.
Love and hugs
Thank you, B. ♡♡
Why does the Big Pink Dude (above) get three hearts and I only get two?
I always thought he was your favourite!
Well, it all goes to the same heart and as you know it all comes from the same heart! ♡♡♡♡
Reblogged this on The Why About This and commented:
Something from the past. On a lighter happier note … ♡♡♡
“Delightful” is the first word that came to mind, Penny, and a lovely tribute to us “girls!” xoxo
Thanks, that’s us, curiouser and curiouser! xo
This is so you dear Penny…lovely poem! 🙂
Thanks LuAnn, actually and truthfully it is (now a little older, my version of my gorgeous niece Madison, my youngest sister Louise’s daughter! 🙂
Oh so now I understand…. love the poem Penny you are so good at it…
Thanks, yeah, that’s probably me in the pic! 🙂
Penny, wonderful post – really enjoyed your drawing and poem!
Hi Mary, thank you and welcome! It was fun. Just a little sketch I haven’t done any serious drawing in a long time, but Lisa has inspired me to think on doing some. (I was a portrait artist as a young adult when my children were young – my way of staying at home with them while earning a living as a single mom!) But I’m discovering how much I enjoyed drawing for the pleasure of it.
absolutely the painting and the poem is perfect. We will take the time and look at your other posts..well done Penny
Hello Mary and John and Welcome. Thank you very much. Just a little sketch and poem for fun but I do thank you very much!

Hi Lyn, thank you. It was fun, and it is soooo what being a little girl is all about! 🙂
Beautiful Penny and elucidative – I can hear Maurice Chevalier singing…
I thank you Mike, Yes I can hear him singing now too! For a certain age group however, those reading this will be saying “Who”? LOL, Again, my thanks!
AnElephantCant resist sticking his big nose in
He too is irrepressibly curious
He understands much of the world
But never the girl
Can Penny explain The Why About This
Too true! Too true! 🙂 xo

Hi Robyn. We are still little girls at heart aren’t we? I have excellent memories of my mom as she grew older, still loving to giggle, take walks and pick wildflowers (and watch her favorite cartoons)! Thank you, they were fun to create! Much love to you most dearest of friends, xo
That be me! I was always a curious kid & asked 50 million questions. My siblings called me nosy Rosy. I called myself curious & inquisitive!

It is. I have the clock in the bottom right set with three times. Local Time, Eastern Time, Pacific Time. So the time is currently:
So beautiful Penny!

Nice poem Penny. In an age of inequality girls need all the support they can get. So I too say ‘go girls’.
Thank you Michael, very much! 🙂
Go girls! :^D Great illustration!
Yes, absolutely! 🙂 Thank you very much!
[ Smiles ] Nice poem, Penny.
For the record, little boys are curious about life too!
Thank you Renard! 🙂 And yes I know they are. I grew up with a brother and raised a son, so I’m exceedingly aware of your curious natures, my friend! xx
[ Laughs ] Now, that is good to know, Penny.
Yes indeed, lots of experience exploring the countryside with my brother as a child. Lots and lots! 🙂
