Oh Dummy Boy…
Dummy decided to drive some snakes around in honor of St. Patrick. I wouldn’t let him borrow my car so he had to take the train.
His friends are Choral snakes. Choral snakes unlike coral snakes are nonvenomous. As you can see they have round pupils as opposed to slitted ones. If you see a snake with slitted eyes stay away even if they try to lull you with a song.
The Choral snakes are named Finbar, Ronan and John (their mother is a big fan of the Irish Tenors).
This is the song they sang for Dummy, it was quite lovely if a bit lispy.
“Oh Dummy boy, the paints, the paints are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The glazing’s gone, and all the brushes falling
‘Tis you, ’tis you must go and I must bide.
But come ye back when acrylics are in the studio
Or when the watercolor is fresh and oh so clear
‘Tis I’ll paint there in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Dummy boy, oh Dummy boy, I love you so.”
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!!
The theme for WordPress’s weekly photo challenge is “unusual”. I thought I would enter Dummy’s pic into it. Let’s just keep that between ourselves though, I don’t want him getting a big head.
Thanks to all who have expressed their concern about my eyes. They’re still a little sore but much much better then they were. I’ll be back to painting soon!
