Early morning erection — 17 Comments

  1. First off, I don't believe that's your house.  It's bright and sunny and the door is open and the dog is reclining on the patio.  That's not Ireland.  It's not raining.
    Secondly, what's with the little cherub sitting at the top of the stairs?  Maybe it's Pixie Chick.

    • Photoshop, my good man.

      As for the little cherub thing, that doesn't exist.  It just appears in photographs and can't be seen with the naked eye.  I have my suspicion that it may be Supershadow.

  2. Is there anything worse than a power saw cutting stone at eight in the morning?

    two of them.

    The pillar has a garden tap attached to it. Either that or you tap it three times and go underground as Bond did in Live and Let Die.

    • The tap idea is a good one.  Wrong though.  My garden tap is hidden under a mass of brambles way off to the right.

      I did think of suggesting that the granite rock is infused with a solid quartz crystal that runs through the core, which allows me to communicate with The Others as they orbit overhead?

  3. I bet it's a menhir, and you dance round it naked when there's a full moon. Probably with half a dozen of the village virgins. And Penny.

    I hope your wife doesn't wake up and catch you worshipping the Old Gods….


    • "worshipping the Old Gods"

      That would have to be good old Priapos.

      Or, should he insist on an Irish broad to worship, then Danu's sort of okay.

      But that page's got stacks of 'em.

      And presumably the "erection's" set in such a way that on the 22nd December he can meander out and check the shadow falls on precisely the the correct mark on that pagan altar and then he can sacrifice a woodland creature to guarantee a bountiful year ahead. Or (more likely) run off to the shops to get pressies for the grandsprogs! 

      • Wow!  That Priapos is a big lad?

        I must check to see which way shadows fall on the various important dates.  Maybe I'll bury little pillars at the corresponding spots to confuse future archeologists?

  4. Your pillar had me musing. Is it for the birds? a bit of food on the top and sit and watch them from inside the house? Even if not, methinks a good idea anyway 🙂

    • That is an excellent [alternative] use for it actually.  I'll give it a try.  Won't work on a windy day though?

    • Leprechauns don't wash.  They wish.  Different thing altogether. Or did you really mean “wishing line”?
