Armless Wonders...

A looong overdue appearance of a few more photos from Rebekah this evening, last seen on this site on honeymoon! These feature her two sons, Andrew above and Ricky below, stood by an armless sculpture in Lake Oswego, Oregon.

In much the same way that seven long years ago we were inspired to start imitating statues with this headless effort, as you can see, the boys have done a superlative job and concealing their arms. Bravo!

Expectant Activities...

Ahem, my apologies for the huge amounts of tumbleweed floating around this here site in recent times. I have no excuses really. Oh, okay, I have recently finished my job of the past eight and a half years, and have been enjoying this strange feeling of freedom a bit too much to blog. That, and not having much in the way of web access at home, where I have been staying for a while. Anyways, I hope you are all well out there…

Righty, lets get on with statue standing business. Thanks to the Ultimate Olympian for pointing this out to me today. Apparently, this photo has been used today in the sign-up page for Yahoo email. I can confirm that this is the first pregnant Stand By Your Statuee we have featured, and I am thinking that the statue is in the Far East somewhere. Brilliant.

Lots Of Love...

Statue John LOVE

Given that its is Valentines Day, I thought I’d revert back to a more popular post from around this time last year featuring a statue of LOVE (see above).

A quick trawl around Google Images has revealed that there are plenty of other folk who have stood by their Statue of Love, so please forgive me for spreading just a little bit of statue love xxx


Unfussed LOVE

Heavy LOVE

Intelligent LOVE

Multiple LOVE

Copious LOVE

Manatee Moves...

Hullo. Nice to be back here posting statues, following a grand holiday. Just a quick overdue statue from an anonymous visitor tonight, featuring a statue of a Manatee in Fort Meyers, Florida.

I was slightly unaware of this fantastic looking creature (found a couple of great pics here and here) – looking at these you can see why they are sometimes called sea cows. They habit in three main geographical areas: The Amazon, West Africa and around the West Indies, the later of which are also found in Florida. Sadly, the West Indian Manatee is an endangered species, as human expansion has reduced its natural habitat in the coastal marsh areas.

Lego Nostalgia...

Does anyone else out there hark back to the days where an afternoon’s happiness could be gained from tipping out a whole box of Lego on the floor and building a huge multi-coloured space station?

*sigh* If only everything in life could be as simple these days!

Anyway, I found the above pic of someone sat by his huge balding Lego man with a great socks and sandles combination thing going on while trawling the internet last night. Below sees some clown stood by a big Lego clown at the Leksaksmuseet toy museum on a recent trip to Stockholm.

Aye, Lego rocks. This was one of my favourites:

As previously discussed, I am now heading off on hols for around ten days (Dubai, in case you were curious!), so shall report back to you soon. In the meantime, have a great week and a half folks…
