Penny Farthing

Our next door neighbour has no less than SEVEN penny farthing bicycles strapped to this van. How many old-time bikes could he need? Is he planning on racing them?

I would pay -and pay well- to see that.

Hanging Toothbrushes


This is an anti-cockroach measure implemented by Isobel - we want cockroaches to stop crawling over our toothbrushes but putting them in an airtight container makes the brushes smell. So Isobel fashioned two little nooses and hanged our toothbrushes by the neck until they were even more inanimate than they were previously.

It kind if creeps me out to see them hanging there, especially when I go to the bathroom in the middle of the night and just see their little silhouettes, swaying gently in the breeze...
