Hey people. Do pigs even sweat? I have no idea but this weather makes me feel like a potbellied, grimy, stained wifebeater wearing, trailer house dwelling southern guy, possibly chomping a cigar. Not even sure why-- it just makes me feel dirty and gross, and this is the image that comes to mind. And you have to admit, it kind of goes with the pig metaphor.
Here's what Dan rigged-up for me on our deck. He says I can just dunk myself in it, or better yet stand in it and hose myself off when I just can't take the heat anymore. He explained all this with sort of a devilish, pervy look on his face, but look-- he went to the trouble of finding a tarp to cover it with so gross things wouldn't get in the water (besides me), so really despite images flashing through his male brain that reality has no hope of matching, this was really sweet of him.
It's baby deer time in Suelandia again. Check this out--- 4 baby spotties!! Apparently the moms sort of team-up and let all the kids play together. Cows do this-- actually assign "nursemaid cows" to be baby sitters for the entire herd's calves so the moms can graze and nap. All herd animals have formed societies as part of their survival strategies, and that involves cooperating etc. People don't like to think of this because then we eat them. But it is what it is. They have families and relationships etc too. And all babies (esp furry ones to me) are cute right?
Here's the first thing I finished-- it's a chandelier. I can imagine the cool shadows all those leaves will throw. Right now it's hanging outside so it can rust more, and the breeze can fool with the fish line a bit so I can make sure it's sturdy enough. Makes a heck of a pretty wind chime too.
I think I'll make a couple more horses, maybe two more like this (different poses) and a slightly larger one in blue, dappled like the one from the last show. For some reason I'm picturing it dozing on it's feet. I have so many ideas for this show and it will be a race with the clock to get them all completed, as usual!
This is going to be a tough week. I'm going to just keep working, moving forward, and maybe dunking in and out of our fancy new pool.
