Now there's two little 7 year old boys who's going to be in big shit with their Aunty Tanya ... wanna know why?
But first we'll start at the beginning ... we cousins not brothers, and we live in Brisbane and we going to visit Grandma and Aunty Tanya, and they got lots of animals. There's Daisy the goat, Knight and Tammy and Chief, they're dogs and all the cats there's 6 cats. Poor Virgin Air hostesses sure they know this pair of chatterboxes, they never stop. So with great excitement we head on to Mulgoa Farm just outside Penrith. The house comes alive with them around and the cats all go into hiding, just can't handle all this loving, not one minute of peaceful existance to have a catnap somewhere quiet.
We doing the usual fun thing with them like horse riding lessons, movies, craft and shopping. They very good at keeping themselves amused too and this time they thought of a lovely prank they could play on Aunty Tanya who drives this whopping big black Territory and has lovely big wheels. Well Grandma was busy grinding some rusty nails and dropped a few cause they were to hot which they found... now do you see where this is going. They confide in Grandma "we played a trick on Aunty Tanya we planted nails in the driveway, hidden in the stoney gravel". Well Grandma who is a little afraid of Tanya's temper could see this is a bad thing, tells them off cause it a very silly thing to do and out we go with a torch looking for the needle in a hay stack.
Fast forward a few weeks and you guessed it she has a flat tyre, she ain't happy and stomps around finally takes the Rodeo, while we neighbour came to help ... having a wonderful time putting the spare tyre on. It's a devil of a job the nuts are on good and solid eventually we both the flat on the ground finding a place to jack the Territory up and jack is the worst design you have ever seen in your life and and and ... and it's getting late to get too Nick and Adele's for a bunny chow lunch. It's a zoo at our place trust me!
The spare is a little bigger than the other tyres so Monday Tanya's off to the tyre shop to have them fixed and reports back there where 4 nails in her tyres and it just cost you $50 Ok anything you say dear daughter cause I knows it's my fault dropping them nails in the first place. (Ja nee kak en betaal die wet van Transvaal)
Then yesterday I remembered those two little boys planted some nails just right ...
Have a great weekend
Portraits from the past, thinking about Mother's Day - I used to do a lot of portrait sketches. This was one of the very first ones, a charcoal pencil drawing of my grandma (Dad's mom) when I was 16. These are ...
