Eggs, Mrs. Humpty Dumpty, All Together, and Of Course Lucy

First of all I want to thank you all again for your wonderful comments on my blog. I wish I could answer everyone of you... please know I read all the comments and appreciate them all!

Eggs! My Americana's are finally starting to lay eggs! Of course just in time for winter, when the egg laying drops off dramatically! Aren't they beautiful?

Mrs. Humpty Dumpty... She's the "real" victim of his fall...
Here's her story~
"Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall"

We've all heard that Nursery Rhyme.
Yes, Humpty couldn't be put back together again.
But lets stop and think, who is the real victim of Humpty Dumpty's fall?


Why it's Mrs. Dumpty and all the little dumpty's (eggs if you will).
Did anyone ever stop and think about Humpty's better half?
No, I didn't think so!

Poor Mrs. Dumpty sat on that fateful wall looking down on the mess
that used to be her husband, "Tsk Tsk" she thought.

All the Kings horses and All the Kings men noticed a small smile creeping upon Mrs. Dumpty's lips.
Is that a smirk or a smile? Is there a possibility of foul play?
Could he may have been pushed or nudged just a little?

Well, that would lead us into quite a different Nursery Rhyme....

Mr. Dumpty sat on a wall all day long on his tush.
You can't blame Mrs. Dumpty for giving him a little push.
When all the Kings horses and all the Kings men came to put Humpty Dumpty together again.

She said "Oh please don't bother! He wasn't a great father. All he did was sit on his wall. I knew he would fall." (She says with a smile)
 "We're better off without him" She said with a grin. "You see he left me a huge insurance policy. My babies and I won't suffer any strife. I'll just go find another egg and become his wife!"

Now if you've read this far I'm impressed!

And last but not least ... Lucy... poor thing, 13th child... another story, another time~: )

Pattee -
Not sure which I like better, the actual sculpture or the story behind it!
I have to say I adore your 13th child! Any plans to make your painting into a print? (HINT HINT!!)

Those are BEAUTIFUl eggs!

By the way: love the story- I always felt bad for humpty (the fall must have hurt) but I also felt pretty bad for the kings horses and men who presumably spent all day trying to figure out a way to put him together again!

Ricky Gervais has a great explanation of this on youtube.

"if your surname is Dumpty, don't call your first born Humpty"

enjoy

Great Blog..I just found out what a blog of note was as well and that's how I found your page..very unique indeed.

very creative dolls

Nick said...

Why is it always assumed Humpty Dumpty was an egg? It doesn't say that in the rhyme. If he was really a coconut...tragedy averted.
