    2. I love the way that Joanne holds back her true feelings and makes sure she never lets anyone know what she really thinks.

  4. I thought we were all 'sad bastards' here?

    From one SB to another, I think it's excellent. I wouldn't know where to start... well I'd be OK with 'First take your newspaper.' but after that...

  10. I will only say that papier mache folk art - similar to what you have there, except painted all over - were selling for $80 Canadian over twenty years ago in our fair province. You may have a new income stream there.

    2. Thank you. You can use the photo on my blog as a guide--you know, the one of the back of my head and I'm wearing a white sweater that turned into a blob in the photo so I look exactly like the hunchback of Notre Dame.

  27. Well done John! She kind of reminds me of our old Licorice (Barred Rock Hen). I've stopped by to see how you and the 'gang' have been doing...I hope you've all been well and are enjoying summer across the pond. All is well here on the farm in Kansas. We lost our beautiful rooster Romeo a couple of months ago :( and the odd hen here and there but to natural causes. Shep is still doing his job :) Anyway...I just wanted to say Hello and send you hugs XO
