...The saws present here are a bit less laterally-inspired -
I used edging from tinfoil food-trays.
Now I see why the tang on what I thought was frewire was large enough to cut those shark teeth into. Hah.
fertile imagination
I don't know if my imagination is fertile but it is active, lol. Since we've discussed creativity a bit... I remember Sister Mary James, my unfortunate first grade teacher, dragging me by my ear up to her desk, clutching the paper I had been drawing on, saying very emotionally, "What is this? What are you doing?!! All you do is draw!! Why won't you do your work?!! WHAT IS THIS???", pointing to my picture that looked like a beehive with birds flying around and a World War I era airplane attacking. I learned later, with other teachers, to say, "I'm sorry. I was distracted. I'll try to do better." But instead I said, "That's the birdie airport. It has multiple levels and can handle all kinds of birds taking off and landing. And that's a biplane. It has machine guns." She was sobbing and shaking her head. I walked back to my desk.

:lol: - sounds like it was a splendid drawing Lawler - but one can't help feeling concern for Sister Mary :?

meanwhile, suddenly out of a sudden eerie mist appeared a pair of double-talking Stiltonic Remedy salesmen

Thank you, Martin. I can see the drawing in my mind. It's interesting, the things one wrestles with from their past.

Be curious no more! not that it's a particular thrilling installment -
(script wasn't quite right - which only became apparent when I reread the previous installment :roll: )

With the mist cleared appeared a fresh potential customer with a not so fresh item for special Stiltonic treatment

I've been immersed in the recent pictures for the last half hour. A pleasure.

a few things stuck in my mind...
...the headless sawman!!! - my personal favorite at the moment
... the girl saying, "Daddy fed his body to the dogs"
...the terms and conditions on the bottom of the jar. Been there!

:wink: I think the latest boyfriend is a bit shocked about the dogs thing...
Meself I'm a bit concerned about where the jar of heads has gone-
but there be terms and conditions still to wade through...

blank pages + empty jar.jpg
.... and with the clearing of another sudden mistiness

"Don't you have any that would be more suitable for a princess?" I think I heard that in an upscale department store here recently.

Cool stuff, Martin.
