Turkey of a Different Feather
Here's another colorful wall sculpture in the geometry series. Of course, these will look different once they're fired. Not sure what the colors with do on this red stoneware clay I'm using.
You know how I like to say white rabbit the first day of the month for good luck; head on over to Charlene's blog to see her rabbit, rabbit sculpture; of course I love it. And here's a sailboat adrift in the waters of life.
I think I might have been influenced by my blogger friend Teresa's dream post.
We just had ground turkey the other day and yesterday I read it has sickened hundreds of people across the country, one has died. The CDC knew and didn't tell us till this week?
Over the last several months my cats have been sick off and on, throwing up, sleeping a lot, lethargic. I also noticed they didn't like Purina One cat food any more. They'd go up to the bowl, sniff it and walk away. So I started switching brands trying to find food they liked. I just heard there's a recall due to the ground turkey in the food. My cats knew the food was bad.
That reminds me of a turkey of a different feather I made when I was about nine or ten years old. I took a big piece of cardboard about two foot square and drew a turkey with his tail feathers spread nicely. Then I took rice kernels and dyed them many different colors. Then I took a tweezers and glue and filled in the whole turkey, one piece of rice at a time. I remember each tail feather was a different color; I used to love that turkey. Over time lots of the rice fell off; I'm not sure what ever happened to that turkey. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
