Can you imagine the time involved in this melon Sculpting. I think it is very interesting to say the least.
Time is not my friend at the moment as I am preparing for my move at the end of the month. Happily I am on holidays next week so can then give it my full attention.
The thought of yet another move is very daunting to me at the minute, however if that is all I need to worry about I am O. K.

Two Irish hunters got a pilot to fly them to Canada to hunt moose.

They bagged six. As they started loading the plane for the return trip, the pilot said the plane could take only four moose. The two lads objected strongly. "Last year we shot six, and the pilot let us put them all on board; he had the same plane as yours."

Reluctantly, the pilot gave in and all six were loaded. However, even with full power, the little plane couldn't handle the load and went down.

A few moments after, climbing out of the wreckage, Paddy asked Mick, "Any idea where we are?"

"I think we're pretty close to where we crashed last year."

At dawn the telephone rings.
"Hello, Senor Lucky? This is Ernesto the caretaker at your country house."
"Ah yes, Ernesto. What can I do for you? Is there a problem?"
"Um, I am just calling to advise you, Senor, that your parrot died.
"My parrot? Dead? The one that won the International competition?"
"Si, Senor, that's the one."
"Damn! That's a pity! I spent a small fortune on that bird. "What did he die from?"
"From eating rotten meat, Senor"
"Rotten meat? Who the hell fed him rotten meat?"
"Nobody, Senor. He ate the meat of the dead horse."
"Dead horse? What dead horse?"
"Your thoroughbred, Senor Lucky. Your thoroughbred died from all that work pulling the water cart."
"Are you insane? What water cart?"
"The one we used to put out the fire, Senor"
"Good Lord! What fire are you talking about, man?"
"The one at your house, Senor! A candle fell and the curtains caught on fire"
"What the.....!!! But there's electricity at the house!!! What was the candle for?"
"For the funeral, Senor."
"Your wife's, Senor... She showed up one night out of the blue and I thought she was a thief, so I hit her with your new Tiger Woods Nike Driver."

"Ernesto....... if you broke that driver, you're in deep, deep, trouble."

Margaret, I hope your move goes smoothly and that you have some good helpers. I know you are having knee problems too.
I watched some sculptors make all kinds of fruit figures on a cruise. These guys, all men, were pretty fast.
Supposedly it was a lesson and the passengers watching would be able to do that when they got home.
