Every Object Tells a Story.
Some of your suggestions for Sandi's own virtual museum:
Nunzilla, a clockwork plastic nun in a black/white habit that spits sparks as it walks along. Carol.
A plastic Jesus with a changing colour fibre-optic backdrop, with suckers so it can attach to the window. Simon in Wimbledon.
Might I be so bold as to suggest a portrait of a certain Dutch monarch for the box? No names mentioned but the one in the pretty hats. Beatrix in The Netherlands.
A knitted loo roll holder in the shape of a crinoline wearing doll, in shocking pink - has to be in the museum, which currently lives in her parent's loo. Jan on the A12.
Monday 18th July - 'Apparently about 20% of all adults living in the US have at some point had a cockroach living in their inner ear canal.' - Sandi
TOPICS: Eccentrics, white lies, the rapping baggage handler and the Cockroach Museum in Plano, Texas.
