Returning good for evil

on April 14, 2012

Some time ago now, doudou, a fellow blogger ( sculpted me some birds, and they were brilliant – three emu chicks, one galah and a bluejay.

Now doudou is going to sculpt Tina Turner! In case you don’t know who Tina is, he is one of our roosters. Another thing you might not know is that Tina attacks me all the time (possibly because, until he grew up, I thought he was a girl). So, in good-for-evil mode, I have decided to allow Tina’s entrance into doudou’s hall of fame because I am hoping that giving Tina Turner a turn will endear him to me – ha!

The only problem is that Godfrey finds this very difficult because, as my only other attacker, he feels it should be him who is sculpted first but as I told him this morning, whilst extricating my ankle from his biting beak, Tina was here long before he arrived!

I do try to pat him with one hand and use my other hand to fend him off but it isn’t working very well so please, doudou, could  you sculpt Godfrey first? He is terribly jealous….

  1. I can’t wait to see the artistic interpretations of these two characters!

  2. I can’t wait to see how Tina Turner comes out! That hairdo is quite an artistic challenge.

    Those sculptures are gorgeous 🙂

  4. I think you should wear spats or some kind of ankle guards around your birds.

      What’s a spat?

      • Those coverings the British used to wear over their boots, maybe to keep the dirt from going in through the lace up part? Anyway, it would be extra ankle protection in the bird yard. I was kidding, bu now that I think of it…Or you could use what we call gators – a covering from ankle to knee, worn by hikers.

        Oh I know what you mean now and yes that is a very good idea – I’m not sure what we call them here!

  7. How very cool. I love the sculptures. Do you know how they are made?

    Oh you have such a funny way with those two – I’m not sure I’d honor either Godfrey or Tina Turner with their own sculpture – you are a good woman!

  9. Those baby emus are precious!!! Doudou is extremely talented artist!

    Is Godfrey a Greylag Goose?

    My sister had a rooster who attacked everyone but me. I bought worms at a bait store and threw him a few every day. He was a pushover.
