light rail art

several works of art adorn the dorsey/apache 
light rail station, including this saguaro 
skeleton. when a saguaro dies, the flesh
decays leaving a beautiful woody skeleton. 
this rendering looks just like the 
real thing.

I beg your forgiveness for my cutting and pasting – yet constantly reworking – this comment, but there was no way on Earth I would be able to make it around the whole globe to wish everybody a Merry Christmas otherwise.

Yes, I am but a mere mortal. The magical elves that constitute my staff have demonstrated their lack of respect in either not showing up for work at all, and those that have all seem a little worse for wear, if you catch my drift. All they seem to do is sit around smoking, playing cards and telling dirty jokes! Consequently, the reindeer are all filthy and out of shape. And you know, the wallabies just don’t cut it as replacements.

Anyway, from myself, Henry and Ezra, have a Merry Christmas/Winter Solstice/Hanukkah/Festivus and a happy New Year!

I hope that all of your holiday photos turn out to be triumphs, your stocking is stuffed full of lots of tasty treats and not coal and that all your pumpkin pies are all as sweet as you like them.

I have always been fascinated with the saguaro. I taught a unit on it to my 3rd graders every year here in B'ham, AL. This sculpture is gorgeous. Would love to see it and touch it.
