Harvest Day

Mark Zuckerberg
Donald Trump
Megan and Harry
Pooty Putin

You may remember the wonderfully disturbing puppets from satirical BBC puppet show Spitting Image.  Co-creator Roger Law has confirmed that a pilot has been filmed, with hopes of a new series focusing on major celebrities like Donald Trump and Mark Zuckerberg (above).
Jeff Westbrook, a writer on The Simpsons  and Futurama,  is serving as show-runner, and caricaturist Adrian Teal is working on the puppets.  You can get a glimpse of the Trump puppet in action here.
The dog walk yesterday was lovely. It was cloudy but it was bright and warm. The clouds created a lovely soft disbursed light that, with the smell of wood smoke in the air, flooded my mind with lovey memories of Autumns past. I took my coat off and wore it around my waist.  And I took notice of the Mushrooms sprouting up everywhere.
I walked with Adrienne for a while and gave her my address. I asked her to send me an email so that I can invite her and her husband, Christian, for dinner. She is keen, and I am happy.
And I walked with my neighbour Keith. He’s coming over tonight with his Marijuana plants and we’re harvesting mine so that we can hang them all up to dry in my studio. We have modest colas on our plants, but they look and smell fine. The trick now, is to dry them without getting an infestation of mold.
And I started sorting my dried leaves. Although they have lost their luster, they remain very pleasing to my eye. Next, I’ve to try various ways of trying to bring back some luster and to give them some stability. I’ll try Varathane and Shellac, spraying and dipping. 
Today is bright and sunny. I’ve to do some transplanting today and I’ll mow the front lawn. That’ll end my yard work for the year except for putting the fountain “to bed” for the winter.
