my little elephant

On the R4 show Genius a member of the audience had the troooly genius idea of genetically engineering very small elephants so that people could have them as pets. Tiny herds of these splendid creatures could then march elegantly across the plains of our sitting room carpets, grazing on very small plants along the way. Marvellous.

I haven't told the cats yet, but if anybody does manage to breed very small elephants I should be the first in the queue...

You will, of course, need to employ specially-bred miniature elephant-herders to stop them from going under the piano or getting stuck in mouse-holes... Otherwise, an utterly wonderful idea!

Profound in so many ways...

uncovering old lath and plaster

This morning this was a blue-painted wall which collapsed in less than two minutes in two almighty thumps revealing all this lovely lath and plaster work. This surely hasn't been seen since 1879 when the house was built and is a rather beautiful piece of handiwork. Sadly it will all be stripped out and replaced tomorrow with something less interesting and which probably won't last nearly as long.... but I am reliably told it has to be done.
And me and the builder are listening mainly to The Silver Seas.

playing with apps and pictures of cats...

I can't draw... plus I don't think there are pencils in the house any more so I have been playing with some photos and the PhotoSketcher app and these are the results. Who needs to draw now eh?
