Ramona Rung, Face Painter and Storyteller

by Ramona Rung

Over 2 years ago I visited in Halifax. Being a storyteller, I was fascinated by the popular tugboat that lives there, Theodore the Tugboat. He is like Thomas the Tank Engine in the USA.

So, as a face painter, I was offered a free "be in the boat parade" in 2011. How thrilled I was to discover I was actually "ON" the very same tugboat I fell in love with while in Halifax.

Then, a tall handsome man, I was told the owner and Captain, was having his photo taken, so I stepped aside. Someone said, "No, HE wants his photo taken with YOU". I have a copy of the photo, and now am wondering if "Theodore" will again be in the 2012 parade.

I just wish I knew how to be "IN" the parade once more. Last year will always remain a fabulous memory for me. I painted lots of faces, was given tips, but best of all, got a DVD of "Theodore" and watched his movie in the upstairs loft with a couple of close friends of the Captain.

Now how much luckier could I possibly be? Plus they all loved me and my work as well.!!!! I had the best parade views and loved every minute of the amazing lights!!

Theodore TOO from Halifax NEW
by: Ramona Rung

I learned, that, No, Mr. Murphy, owner of Theodore Too Tugboat, will be elewhere this Dec.-Jan., not in Florida. But---maybe next year. In Halifax and , I guess all over, British Columbia, Theodore is as popular as Tomas the Tank Engine is here in the USA. Thanks for your message. RAmona, Storyteller/Face Painter Artist

Great story! NEW

What a great story Ramona! Not so sure if "Theodore Too" will be one of the entries this year (so far, not so sure if a list of participating boats is available) but we remember it from last year and it's such an original boat!

Hope your face painting and storytelling business will grow in popularity!
