  1. Hearts and nuts. He will fight for one and crack the other, and vice verse. So not always a softy, but he looks a little sad under that hat which has a squirt of toothpaste on the top. I’ve never seen a blue uniform on one, they’re usually red in this land.

      Observation -crack the other- has been carefully observed & noted by La Befana. She is carrying extra soot this year.

      Yes, the blue. They sold many different ones at my favorite craft store called Spotlight. There is a ginormous one of this, that comes to my waist, I will wait till the Christmas sales to purchase him. The mouths actually move too!

      • They are marvellous manikins!

        La Befana I see is – ‘the benevolent old woman with magical powers who brings gifts to the children of Italy on the eve of the Epiphany. Like any other legend, there are many versions.’ – I had no knowledge of her, thank you Jessie, she appeals far more than Santa, but then again I like to ride a broomstick (mop really) too.

        We learnt about her in primary school. I was always fascinated, partially horrified actually. They also have a chick instead of a rabbit, from memory. And my memory, well.

      You sure can Barry. The toothpaste was solely brought for aesthetic purposes & decoration. It dries hard which is cool. My personal toothpaste is fluoride free!

  2. Me…I didn’t realize it was toothpaste at all until I read the comments. I presumed an astute and accurate seagull had been about his business!

      I like your version. It’s not too far fetched either Mike, given what I see seagulls eat these days!

      • They take it turns to bombard both my son’s car and ours…a daily ritual although the gulls here are – albeit the same breed – are much smaller than those in Devon where we lived previous. Many hate them yet I do like gulls a lot!

        They must love routine like humans. My dad put sharp spikes on all his lights, chimneys & fence. He also took the neighbor -dubbed birdman- to court for feeding them. Personally, I don’t really give a shit!

      • There is an allotment next to our garden and the bloke feed the gulls who then used to shit on Shirley’s washing…until the day she spoke a sentence within which many words began with ‘f’! Problem sorted…I think I wrote of her once, ‘Sometimes she has the eloquence of a bard; sometimes the gob of a navvy’!

        Shirley’s Washing sounds a great title for a write. You could even complain about pegs and their inability to be purchased in bag form.

        The eloquence of a bard, sometimes the gob of a navy – that is sensational.
