A Heavy Load...



I am a little saddened to report that all of my posts so far have focussed on the male sex practicing the art of statue imitation. Although in my experience, females generally seem just that little bit more sensible than us dumb blokes, that certainly does not dissuade them from practicing the silly artform of Standing By Your Statue!

So, it gives me great pleasure to introduce you to Mrs Katie McClure, who is a good friend of mine (as well as better half of the most worthy Ultimate Olympian). In this picture, we have travelled to a province situated some distance off southern coast of Spain – to Tenerife – where, as you can see, Mrs Mac (not to be confused with the pies of the same name) precariously balances a heavy load upon her head. She has perfected the pose right down to the water that she carries in her left hand. Bravo!

As with yesterdays photo from Spain, I have no idea unfortunately as to who the statue actually is, so if any readers can shed more light then please get in touch. There seems to be a trend forming in that you do not actually have to be famous person to have a statue erected after you in Spain, or in a Spanish province, a trend which I heartily applaud!

Just paint yourself grey, stand on a box, and have people take their picture with you. Less traveling that way, and you can cut down on costs.

Come to think of it, I haven't seen very many lady statues in my lifetime.

Three cheers for Katie! A deft and stately pose indeed. I'm glad you finally got around to representing the female side of statues (we ladies want to play too).
