Lazy Tong Terror
This is the new rag rug that Hazel has been making for the last few weeks whilst watching television in the evenings. Its mostly made from old clothes, T-shirts, and cheap material from the market. Archie usually draws the design but being a grumpy teen he declined and I had to do it. It's a plate with egg, sausage, mushroom and tomatoes. Isn't it obvious?!
It graces or back room now under the table where the old rabbit soiled one used to be. All we need now is a grumpy rabbit to poo all over it and all will be complete!
A sneak previw now of a weird metal gadget before it gets put on Hazel's A1Scrapmetal blog. I bought it for her from the Oxfam shop for three quid.
Lazy tongs were used by midgets in the 19th century to retrieve rude books about corsets and brassieres from the high shelves of the infamous Bodkin Shops which flourished in the latter part of the 19th century and into the 20th.
Here you see it half extended. To show it fully extended I need a special lens for my camera and special license from the post office. I expect Hazel will show it to it's fullest advantage in her excellent blog very soon.
She is especially jubulent at the moment as the Interactive Arts course she works so hard on has been given 5 more years after it's 5 year review.
