"...Somewhere in Oceania they added mermaid elves."

From "Finnish Opera" by Barbara Guest

I see you got reconnected. Does that little sash say, Support the rabbis? Thinking out of the box gets one everywhere. Even to BBQ.

:-) I like the idea of a "support the rabbis" band -- but it says "support the rabid," which amused me during this medic-suffused time.

Found it, and the porcelain mermaid, protecting a random corner of the Austin Community Gardens.

that's one of the funniest porcelain pieces I've ever seen. She'd fit right into Barbara Guest's Finnish Opera - demonstrating one of the basic differences between the Finns and the Danes, maybe?

Hope you feel better soon.

Oh it is wonderful, Lori. I thought it said "support the rabbits".

Rabbits are always in need of proper support.

rabid porcelain mermaid is a growing problem, particularly in south, so it's good that there's a support system. :) ... nice find!
