Jesus is Watching You

A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around, looking for valuables, and when he picked up a CD player to place in his sack, a strange disembodied vois echoed from the dark saying, "Jesus is watching You!"

He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked off his flashlight and froze. When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head , promised himself a vacation after the next big score, then clicked the light back on and began searching for more valuables.

Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard, "Jesus is watching YOU!"

Freaked out, he shined the light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot. "Did you say the? he hissed at the parrot.
"Yep," the parrot confessed, the squawked,:"I'm trying to warn you." The burglar relaxed. "Warn me, huh? Who are you?" "Moses", replied the parrot. "Moses?" the burglar laughed. "What kind of stupid people would name a parrot 'Moses'?" "Probably the same kind of people that would name a Rotweiller Jesus," the bird answered.

I found this stuffed in Mom's bible. Thought it was pretty funny.

Thought for Today

You know you're getting old when your grandchild asks you to close your eyes so she can give you a surprise and you don't wake up until the following afternoon.


Pumpkin Head

Here's a Pumpkin Head Candy Container that I've been working on. The gourd is sculpted Apoxi Sculpt. Fun stuff that.
I'm still not quite up to parr from my fall last week. Boy did I ever try and do myself in. Felt pretty sorry for myself to a few day, but I'm getting better each day now, so no one's going to have the pleasure of planting me for a while yet. Ha!

I'm not a well person right now!!!

OMG! I think I'm killed! I had to go to the dentist this morning and when I left her office I stepped in a hole on the sidwalk and fell really hard. I didn't think I would ever get to my feet again. Didn't break anything, but my knee is all swollen, I've pulled a muscle in my back, and messed up my neck again so that I'm going to have to do traction twice a day again for a while. I'm so mad at myself. I really didn't need this to happen right now. Whine! whine!

Oh well, I suppose I'll live. Sheese! Always something it seems.

Gourd Animal Ornaments

I almost forgot that I wanted to post phots of these ornaments that I just finished. These little gourds were of really strange shapes. What to do with them. This is what I came up with. They are all about 5-6 inches tall.

New Pieces

I've been a little busy with me gourds lately. I'm trying to get as much done as I can before we beging lambing. I'm not sure how much time I'm going to have after that.
These first photos are of a sculpted gourd Santa, of course, then my little garden Urchin, and a Witch called Bella.
I really like doing the gourds. They don't take near the time as an art doll or a full body sculpt.
