“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

Postcard from Blue Ridge, Georgia
Thursday, May 23, 2013

We spotted this in the outdoor section of an antique emporium:

I should have had my wife pose with it to show the size -- the head is two feet across! The entire bust is about five feet tall.

We all scrutinized for the longest time, pretending we knew who it was: Wordsworth? ... Whitman? ... A Norwegian King?

"It's my husband," explained the owner of the store. She said that they'd commissioned a piece to use for a settee of sorts for their favorite cowboy hat ... but the size of that cranium would obviously make a ten-gallon hat appear a more appropriate fit for an American Girl doll.

 I really wanted to buy it. Wife said no, not even for Father's Day.
