Just Waving Hello

 It's been pretty quiet here lately. So we thought we'd just wave hello and say how much we appreciate  you stopping by.

We noticed this charming skeletal chap when we were out on one of our walks. He waved at us like all of our neighbors do. Yes, we waved back. Wouldn't you? Such a nice friendly neighborhood. Now you know why we love it here.

Hope all is well for you, we're waving hello!

  8. The neighborly skeleton made me think of the friendly fake pig that you and Roger saw on one of your neighborhood walks last year (-:

  11. From time to time - ie, at decade-long intervals - I've daydreamed about owning a skellington. But what would one cost? I've just googled: less than £100 which seems a bargain. However, closer inspection reveals such cheapos are anatomically incorrect.

    Why would I want one? During my youth I pursued moderately dangerous activities - riding motorbikes, rock-climbing, ski-ing - and occasionally I damaged myself. Having a bone job would enable me to check just exactly what had happened inside my body. In particular a very spectacular ski-ing fall where I caught the tip of my ski in a tree root and described a semi-circle in the air of radius 6 ft 1½ in. (that's my height) plus 2 ft 6 in. (half the length of the ski), the result of which I dislocated my shoulder and chipped my scapula. Net result: when I'm driving these days I'm only able to turn my head a limited amount to the right (checking for incoming traffic). I'd like to examine the relevant bones and envisage how they've been re-aranged.

    My daydreams (about skellingtons) started in the pre-google days. Thus if I'd bought one I'd have had to face the problem of taking it home. Unwrapped it would have drawn a great deal of attention on the bus; maybe the law would have been involved.

    One website, The Cabinet of Curiosities, offers real bones from real people (now dead, of course). However, since a hand costs about £75, the price of a whole bony body would, I think, be prohibitive.

    Never say there's nothing post about.

    1. Roderick-- I've never heard of skellingtons before. I love it! I never thought of owning one before, but I think I would appreciate having one. I studied Evolutionary Anthropology in college and what I would really like is a skeleton of a Neanderthal, one of my favorite ancient primates.
      Actually when I think about it, what I want are fossils. You want an actual skeleton. Interesting. I really hope you get one.

  12. Tara: I wave at all my neighbors, most of whom I know, but some I do not. I wave anyway and they wave back! Thanks for waving at us!

    1. Tara-- Oh yes, we wave at our neighbors too. The ones we know, the ones we don't know. It's lovely to have a waving skeleton!
