MICHELANGELO & RODIN HAVE NOTHING ON THIS GUY!

Garrett came upstairs from the basement heaving sighs of disgust.

He poked his head into my office and exclaimed,
"I'm getting really sick of.................
THIS not being on display."

And from behind his back he pulls out
Pengy

Why do I feel like I am dealing with a first grader?
Although I continue to return Pengy to a perfect display place....... in the basement,
he continues to show up on my desk, on a table in the front hall, on the buffet in the family room and in the middle of the kitchen counter.
Evidently, we have not given Pengy/Garrett enough artistic praise.

Oh, oh, oh - my stomach hurts from laughing so hard. Garrett is so stinking funny. I look forward to hearing about his exploits every week!

A interesting and thought provoking piece. Really. Why isn't it on the mantle? Front and center! :)

Are you in need of a Garden Pengy? You know, kinda like a Garden Gnome... It would be on display then.

Pengy needs a home at someone else's home. Give it as the white elephant gift at the next holiday party you go to. what you do with him in the meantime, I guess, is the quandry. I started a "white elephant" with a stupid seashell elephant figurine that my FIL gave me years ago...it showed up @ every family Christmas party since then (usually with a stack of lotto tickets attached so the "winner" didn't feel totally jipped!).

Perhaps Pengy needs a little "vacation" into the depths of a hidden box. Then 10 years from now you can introduce him to his new family. I'm sure the future life will love you for it.

BTW, "future life" should have been "future wife." My bad.

My sister-in-law "borrowed" an iron pig from someone's yard when she was in college. She and her roommates took the pig on all sorts of trips, took pictures and sent them back to the owners. They returned him during summer break and then took him again when school started back up.

So you should take Pengy on trips and take pictures (and share them with us, of course)
