There is no inspiration without Groucho…. Today Liar showed us his favourite quote, which was sent to the Dedes by  @renfieldwantsmore  “Who is that Groucho Marx guy” called Top Dog from behind the curtains “he copied that one straight out of my book! I will sue him.”

Then Top Dog came out of his hiding place and walked straight up to Liar.  “You and I are definitely cut from the same cloth,” he said, “do you want to be my campaign manager?”

This didn’t go down well with a few instagram readers. Sorry guys, it is out of my hands. The two seem to be the dream team.

I am not sure if I get round to updating you tomorrow as I have a full-day gig making puppets from trash at the Auckland Storylines Family day. The puppet making is themed healthy eating. Munch and Kin will be the baddies that need to be fought off.

I was busy all week sifting through surplus and left-over material and whittled it down to two boxes full of rubbish to take. This is a job that takes ages, as I easily get sidetracked with making things myself. I also had to remove oodles of rusty pins, so the kids don’t injure themselves when they comb through the treasures. I love these workshops. I find it amazing to see the kids being totally engrossed for an hour or so and come up with their gorgeous creations. I hope I will get some good pics, but I might be too busy running around with my glue gun, helping to stick everything together.

Here is one puppet I prepared earlier, to give the kids an idea what to do. Not that they need it, but had fun making it.
