Some of you may know that Dylan (the manly part of The Cart) writes a little e-newsletter every week to send out to whoever's on our cyber mailing list. He's been doing this for some time now and sometimes I amuse myself by perusing past entries. This one is from 3 years ago this week:Alot of the ideas we have for things to make come from clowning around with half finished pieces. One of our favorite games to play is called Frankendoll. OK, I just made that up. We don't have a name for it, but it usually sounds like this... "What if this one had this one's legs, this one's arms, and these wings..." We've assembled some really hideous creatures, that usually walk a few labored steps with pitiful sound effects added to enhance the illusion. But this week the star of the show was a true hero called Carrot Man. Carrot Man had many adventures this week, flying around our home's airspace and spouting bad puns in a heroic cartoon voice. (The actor who does the voice for Carrot Man was nearly killed recently by a clearly irritated artist that we'll just call "Jo" for now.)
I love my silly silly man.
