Back to Lego today!
These Lego sculptures were in Philadelphia at the Franklin Institute
A sculpture by Sayeh Sarfaraz titled “D pour Démocratie” (“D for Democracy,” 2015) that is part of Montreal’s annual public art festival Aires Libres, was attacked by vandals. The giant statue, made to resemble a green-cloaked, democracy-spreading Lego superhero, had its right arm violently amputated last week.
SO this morning I was out admiring my favorite orchid that seems to be thriving in spite of my ignoring it, when I heard a scratch scratch at the garage door (deja vu!)
I left him to discover how futile his scratching is, and a bit later took some trash out for pickup and he was gone.
He had worked his way under the gate to the courtyard coming in, no matter what!
Confronted by the trusty guard dogs, bark bark bark. He pulled his head in but not for long, he thinks he's home. He's a very wrong turtle. His name is Erroneous from now on, I'll call him Error for short.
The end of my pets for life barking at a guy who wants to stay and be #3. I went and found the lunch cooler again, nudged him in again, took him off to the tulley weeds again, and pushed him out into a nice little glade full of bugs. I betcha we haven't seen the last of him.
As a parting shot, go read The Borowitz Report today, all about these nice guys:
