Look what happened to my bundle!!


Various readers of my blog have suggested that some small creature may have taken up residence inside my bundle (oh I do hope so!) but nothing had prepared me to something taking up residence OUTSIDE my bundle. On Tuesday morning the farmer came in and suggested i take a look in the rowan tree - and this is what I saw.

Alas, I blamed my son (it is his kind of humour) but he was quick to point out that he was not the culprit. That left only one other possibility - a friend with a similar sense of humour. Finally, yesterday, she owned up to the prank!

So the photograph above is being added to "The Life of Bundle" - any day now he/she/it is coming down to be transformed into an art work for Seth. I have half a mind to run over it several times in the car to flatten it (and hopefully spread some of the colour through) - for my goodness me that Times is awfully good protection. This morning we had a torrential downpour and already the hot sun has dried the bundle out. It has certainly taken on a life of its own. I shall miss it when it comes down - but shall not miss the mask!!

The farmer put the mask in the dustbin - friend retrieved it, saying she might be able to scare a few trick or treaters by wearing it herself on Hallowe'en.

I'm glad it's not really a morph of your bundle. Cute joke!

What a great laugh...for a moment (naive many would say), I thought this was the miraculous development of that strange bundle you posted weeks ago.

I cannot tell you how much Edward would have hated this. I can almost hear the barking now.

Oh my goodness how hilarious!

Looks like the kind of thing you might see after eating very much the wrong kind of sandwiches!

Not a pretty sight! My first guess would have been your son - it's the sort of thing mine might have done. Running the bundle over with the car sounds good - I could try that with my catalogue, especially if I make it very wet again. It could provide interesting textured areas. Can't wait to see what you do with your bundle. You should hang on to the mask and use it to scare off unwanted Trick or Treaters!!

What a terrible shock! I hate masks of all descriptions, this one is particularly nasty.

What happened to the other bundle?

It's nice when you can share a bundle of joy with friends, isn't it?
Of all our senses, I believe a sense of humour is a must.

Thanks for the comments - the bundle is now going to come down and be "run over" - I am hoping that flattening it out might make some of the colours inside coe through. Depending on what it looks like after being "steam rollered" I shall decorate it in some way - will keep you posted.!

Hello Wilow,

Hopefully, your bundle will make a prettier picture than the mask!

BT said...

Ha ha, what a great idea! Those masks cost a lot of money!! Glad she retrieved it. I've taken mine down and dried the contents but not sure where I go from there!

Woman in a Window said...

That's hilarious. I love that someone has morphed your bundle. You never do know what will happen in trees.

Derrick said...

WEAVER! A thousand apologies for getting your name wrong - and couldn't even spell the wrong one right!! It must have been the mask what startled me!!

Seth said...

I like your neighbor's sense of humor! And this definitely gets the award for most changed bundle!!!

That's so funny!
