Unintended Art

After spending Friday night on storm watch and the threat of severe weather looming for Saturday yet again, we couldn't wait to get out of the house.

We did some shopping excursions late morning into early afternoon, carefully watching both the clock and the skies. And yet, as the afternoon wore on, the sun remained in place, spread out over a bright blue sky. Hmmm. Methinks the forecaster has done it again!

So, when we got home, I did what any self-respecting homeowner whose lawn is beginning to look like a jungle would do: I mowed. For a change, it was an interesting, if not kind of fun, experience. But more on that tomorrow ...

Yesterday, I logged some time with the bathroom walls. (Still stripping them down to prep for new wallpaper.) One bare spot began to take on an unusual
shape. "That looks like Ozzie's profile," quoth the mother. And I had to agree. It does!

Of course, the real-life model would NOT cooperate for a sideview. He repeatedly kept spinning around and looking at me like this.

So are you going to leave the art on the wall? I have a friend who has lathe and paster walls in his house. He had a hole in his dining room that had interesting appeal and we convinced him to leave the hole there as an "architectural" feature. Haven't been over in years but my guess is that it is still there!
