Mannequins in the garden

Posted: 11/04/2013 at 16:20

There was a male one in a front garden which we drive past on our way out of town, it was naked & had a different pose each time we passed it. Haven't seen it for ages, I had a great urge to give it a wooly hat & scarf in the cold weather!

Thinking about it maybe it wasn't a mannequin but some sort of artist's model as all the joints; fingers, wrists neck etc moved a lot, which a mannequin wouldn't need. Gave us a laugh anyway; not the sort of thing you'd normally expect to find in Inverness!

Today I feel so happy....

That's great news Marion.

What's also great is that you can garden in half an acre & when that's done you're off to find more!!

Good Evening FORKERS

Hi Brumbull, it's good to "see" you again - I always enjoy your jolly comments!

Not at work, but if I want to do anything I'll have to clear the snow first!

We're not freezing Fairy, it is thawing but bbbb.....cold (compared to the sunshine of recent weeks!)

Nobody's e-mailed me at all, I'm obviously not wanted .

Never mind I'll stay here - you can't get rid of me then .  Or maybe everyone will press the "ignore" button

Oh well I'll have to talk to my self then (te-he) .

My hubby says he wants a "nymph surprised while bathing" for the garden (he is only joking!) I said if he got that I'd clothe it with an old coat & wooly hat.

Sam - what about tablet? Much better than the chewy fudge!! It's sooo sweet. If you take a bite then a drink of tea it's as if you've put sugar in the tea.

What's the weather like in your area?

Yesterday the rain started about 4pm, then turned sleety , then snowy.  Woke up this morning & there was 2-3" of it, but none on the roads or paths. It's been coming down ever since, but also it's melting.  Temp is about 4c & in the shed it's 8c.

Oh well perhaps it was too sunny for too long!!

I think the frustration's caused by having 2-3 weeks of sunny days, (tho' sometimes very frosty overnight) & yesterday had been so warm.

It will probably be lovely tomorrow too, as I've got to go out in the afternoon!! (Can I say "bu**er" Verdun if that's the case??)

For lots of dark hair - laser. 

Got done about 10-12 years ago, expensive & painful (may be a different type now) but glad I got it done, especially underarms.  Sorry, getting a bit personal now!!
