3. Are you kidding? These guys are with me to make statements of MINE
They have sat silently in a yard full of political signs, have had anti Geezer and Dingbat stickers on the belly, held "That one" flags for Obama, and that's just the last go-around. They silently witness whoever is coming around at night and destroys one single item every now and then.
In the night of Nov. 4 that stealth red neck destroyed 7 yard signs.

I make these things myself, it's my job in more ways than one.
Glad you like it. Thanks.

4. I do like it
I just thought it might be the neighbors celebrating with you

Out here, one of the organizers for the local Obama team had her home TP'd the night before inaguration. They (her friends) used red and blue streamers, along with white TP. They also put a bunch of Obama signs on her lawn. She loved it.

I wanted so badly to take a picture, but I only heard of this from a newspaper.

7. No I don't make these pieces, I find them. I love old rusted metal stuff.
what I make is bumper stickers, signs and banners. With all that and a wicked or (in the Bush years past) an angry mindset
my neighbors can count on ever changing installation art.

to burgle it for my yard!

12. Oh, I'd love to see a better pic of that stack of stones in the Upper Left...
Is that bonded, or balanced?

13. It's balanced. The Irish call it a cairn. They are all over the Irish road sides,
and though I have not been there (yet) to study them, I understand at times it takes people a half a day to balance one.

In my case, it's one of the things my red neck night prowler turns over most often. We don't have earthquakes much, so it must be him / her (the last quake was before 1977)

I put on my gloves, and start over. Naturally it never looks the same way twice, but that's part of the charm to me.

I will, since you asked, take a picture and put it in this thread tomorrow when there is daylight again.

I will make sure the large crawling ant on top will be visible.

14. Would you be interested in integrating a non-lethal booby-trap
the next time?

Really... I'd love to give you some examples!

17. Here is the requested closeup


I used to balance the large round stone in the front on the top.
But it's quite a feat, and I have not been so strong lately.
