Bad Dolly

This is Basil and his dolly. In this photograph he is administering the double-hindkick of death.



The more usual thing is to slap Dolly up and down the corridor. Dolly rolls very well and makes a satisfying thunk-thunk-thunk sound, because it is only a head. A plastic baby's head, to be precise, with some kind of trepanning wound puncturing the fontanelle in the top of the skull.

Seeing these photos reminded me of that wonderful Bette Davis horror film "Hush hush sweet Charlotte", where the head of the murdered suitor falls out of a box she's carrying and it bumps down the stairs, making an evil thunk-thunk-thunk sound. That film caused me to have to sleep with the light on for a year. Sleep tight!

That is more appropriate than you could ever know.

Anything to distract him from ankles, eh?

Oh I was going to make an intelligent comment, honest, but now I'm all hung up on Val's comment about the head, thunk thunk.

And by the way, I just read your 100 things and I might just be your evil twin. With Jean as middle name also.

Plus, I live in one of those scary towns on the way to Kinglake.

Hi Suse.

I just read your 100 things too, and while I don't measure up to you in the children or the knitting deptartment, yes, we do have a lto of things in common. Jean is the best middle name a person can possibly have.

Present company is always excepted from any random abuse dealt out on blogs. Besides, I live on the way to Kinglake myself ;)

i thought he'd laid an egg, until I saw the second photo.

The day Baz lays an egg, you will certainly hear about it.
