Hi everyone, I'm back at last. I've had so much trouble re laptop etc but I'm hoping that I'm back to normal now. NO COMMENT! When we were up North in March, we went to an auction room and I fell in love with this horses head for the garden. It's extremely heavy but my husband managed to carry it home via trains and taxis etc. So I named it Hernia for obvious reasons!

I would have loved to see the t'old man carrying this on public transport,
I should think those who saw him thought he was the God Father part four.

Envious, I must admit! Would have found this very hard to resist for my garden decore too though doubt George would have managed to carry it these days! Beautiful detail and composition in this image.

Bleeding heck Viki,your husband must be a Saint.I won't carry home a tin of slug repellant for the garden,never mind a horses head !!
And after all your trouble with your computer,is it wise to bring a Trojan Horse home ?

A reminder of that movie " The Godfather " horses heads ect. Sounds as if you certainly worked to get it home Viki. Worth it !!! Ron.
