Thinking of training dogs, the following conversation for your information.
"Oh goodness, what is that? Is it a football wearing a very badly dyed old sheepskin? And why are you dragging it along on that lead?"
"Your dog?? That is an actual dog? Oh yes, now I see the stumps for legs. And the bared fangs at the er.. front end?"
"Can I venture to ask how it got, er, shaped like that?"
" Oh I see. You have been training it.
Using the rewards/treats system."
"And how is that working out for you? Sh!t! It almost took my finger off!"
"Still a long way to go, you think?"
"Oh, look out, I think it is weeing on your leg! Oh I see your leg & shoe are very yellow already!"
Walks off muttering to self, "Wretched thing will very likely die of obesity long before it gets 'trained'. Owner is well trained though...in the art of giving food when required."
Proceed at you own risk!
This is the part, where I would ask anyone with Religion to look the other way, in case they may be offended with content.
We have been watching with amazement & interest, as the world seems to go periodically mad, at supposed findings of faces of the Christ, or the Mary or other 'religious' faces- though how anyone actually knows what these people or beings, actually look like is beyond us too!
And why dont we hear of Bhuddists finding Bhuddas, (although I do believe they are urged to kill the Bhudda if they see it) or Hindi's finding their supposed Deities? Although I do seem to remember some Elephant statue pouring forth milk... no one mentioned the smell that must have prevailed at that little phenomena site! And do the Muslims have such phenomena too?
I apologise if I am offending anyone. As I dont have a religion or an Icon to stand & worship, I am ignorant as to the names, & terms of most of these matters.
Anway, the point of this, is that we noticed some weeks ago, that there was a mysterious shape appeared out on our concrete in the back yard. We decided to wait & see if a face appeared.
We could see raking in the dosh, as we charged admission to view. And sold tissues for the tears that would be sure to be shed at the sight of such a wondrous thing.
Alas, this seems to be as far as it was going to go.
So this morning I thought I should try a little enhancement.
Of course the fact that SG's chalks are mostly broken & eaten by the dog didn't aid the art work in being subtle. And the colours, well... I did what I could with them.
Dismally inadequate, obviously.
I think we will have to make our mint some other way. Unless..
we get some cereal that looks like the christ Oh yes, that has been done. O well back to the drawing board. So to speak.
I know, what about a toasted sandwich??
