CatCaller falls for a Crane


Its not often I fall for expensive arty things .
I have periodic obsessions , the latest being the Roomba ,CatCalls: No Greyhound CatCalls: Roombanot that that was arty , but I did really really want one , and I rode that storm and now I'm quite content again just to do the hoovering with the Dyson ( if you get my drift ) . Or rather for D mainly to do the Hoovering with me doing the odd bit now and then .....
I digress .
There was an obsession just before the Roomba but Ive temporarily forgotten what it was .
But this crane , phographed above , is something else .
Spotted this morning at Kirkharle galleryKirkharle Courtyard, Kirkharle, Northumberland, Creative Arts Centre plus Coff , it was love at first sight .
It would sit perfectly in the new , to- be- revitalised porch , albeit tripping people up as they pass .
Alice would love it . I can see her now , mistaking it for a rescue greyhound like herself , and pecking at its neck like she does with smaller , vulnerable teddy bear style dogs on the beach .
I see myself hanging sundries on its beak ( necklaces , scarves , dog leads , the like )
My sister reckons I'm attracted to it for its beak which , like Alice's greyhound snout , bears more than a passing resemblance to mine .
( And hers , for that matter ) .
Ive said it before , I'll say it again . Watch this space .
