URINATING MEERCATS...


The best Christmas present, from my daft son. Wobbling meercats, which, if positioned carefully behind low shrubs, look as though they are having a quick pee...blissful and gigglesome. What daft pressies did others get, I wonder - or were your gifts all veeeery sensible?
Oh if I had the cash, I'd make these into widdly fountains, all four of em.

I had a wobbly black cock for Christmas and no, this is not a pornographic pressie, but a strange sculpture of a cockerel that if you hold it by it's clawed feet, it wobbles around. It is the most hideous thing I have ever seen and it was given to me by my other half.

Last year he gave me a statue of Saint Agnes (again made by him..marble powder set in a cast) Unfortunately, I know my saints. I am an ex Catholic, whereas Pierre has no religious interest. St Agnes is the patron saint of VIRGINS. Not a great pressie. She stands in the hall all virtue and tutting.

Next year perhaps. I love the meercats!

Those meercats are surely up to no good, missus. Methinks Son No 2 has introduced them into the Gebbie Garden as a kind of 5th column for all manner of mayhem. You mark my words, etc.. etc., until I - and you - begin to lose the will to live.

Ha! Those meercats have a decidedly dodgy air, and methinks they are Up to No Good. In fact, I would go so far as to say that Son No 2 has introduced them into the Gebbie Garden as a form of 5th column, presaging more mayhem, etc., etc., and so on until I - and you - begin to lose the will to live!
In fact, I think they're hilarious: good for TG.
Love from Mynne
