Here's a lovely terra cotta relief of My Rare One and I celebrating Pride Month! Actually, we bought this a few years ago in Italy, at a garden centre just outside the tiny Tuscan village of Vinci (where Leonardo da Vinci was born).
You wouldn't believe all the trouble we had getting this damn thing home. Because it's breakable, I put it in my carry-on, wrapped up in t-shirts to cushion it. The airline said no, it couldn't go on board the plane because I could use it as a weapon and hit someone over the head with it. So we had to frantically rearrange our two carry-ons while in the security line and then check one so it would go under the plane. All the while holding up this huge line of impatient people behind us, of course.
Anyway, it did ultimately get to Edmonton in one piece and now every summer it graces My Rare One's backyard cedar fence.
