The Dad Statue

My aunt Laurie found this ceramic Dad-lookalike at a yard sale awhile back and gave it to my parents last summer.  Mom keeps it in her garden, I can't help but laugh when I see it perched between plants like a distinguished gnome every time I'm home, and even Dad shakes his head at it and says, "I have to admit. . . ."  :)
Too funny.

I have never seen a garden statue of a regular person before - it's incredible! I'm laughing! Great that you should end up with it, too! wow

Do you think it's supposed to be someone famous?

The resemblance is uncanny! I've been missing your posts, Val. I don't know why, as I've just discovered you've been posting all along during this month! xo Nellie

Some lovely pictures of you and your dad Val. As for the statue, the likeness is uncanny, did you dad work at the factory and hasn't told anyone?

Hi Val, I'm a Val too. I just wanted to write and tell you how much I enjoy your blog. I only found you recently, but I have been reading through your past blogs and I thoroughly enjoy everything you have written about your life and family and your beautiful kitty. I just love the dad statue. How lucky to have found something so special.

Lisa, I don't know. I wonder that too.

Valerie, thank you so much, and I'm happy to meet you too. And I think you're only the second Val who's commented here. :)
