Vulture Culture

Hubby took these pics on his Saturday morning hike. Wish he'd bagged a birdie and brought it home for me to adopt, but no such luck. Guess I'll have to settle for rebuilding Vera this year- if time permits, knock on wood.

Vera was my first ever made prop (she just had her 10th birthday- carion cake for everyone!), but looking back it's shocking to see the rudimentary mache/sculpt skills I was limited to. Even the paste was wrong, and she's detiorated badly for it. However, she's definetly served her time and has been enjoying early retirement in her laundry room roost. The water meter reader guys think I'm nuts, no doubt. And so, I'm going to start laying plans for her successor and see how far we get. Stay tuned!
