Wow, so on my way home from work/savers, I was gobsmacked when I saw the amount of snails walking across the footpath.
I have never ever seen so many.
I felt so guilty when I heard the first crunch. So I got out my phone to use as a torch and walked through the minefield on my tip toes. I got an image of 'Honey I shrunk the kids' in my head when the dad is in the backyard looking for the kids.
There's going to be a sea of dead snails down there tomorrow. Poor things.
Anyway this is what I bought today.
This owl money box. It's rather big too, perhaps 25ish cm tall?
He's such a character, I love him. I recognise owl from something. The sword in the stone? Bambi? Or perhaps I'm just thinking of the lady who works in the shop near mine. She has a creepy resemblance to an owl. Hmm anyway. He needs a bit of a polish up and then I'll put him to use. The stopper is able to be removed, so I don't see the saving idea working very well.
Watching "collectors" tonight on ABC, I fell in love with the old man who collected tractors.
Gordon says "What is it you'd still like to get?"
and the man says "Whatever I see that I want!"
Now that's the attitude!
My favorite part was when he said "Its an absolute disease!" (referring to the addiction to collecting)
And I think that its the perfect way of describing how the brains of collectors / op-shoppers work.
It really is a disease, but something i'd be happy to die of!
