What a Sweetie!

So . . you like sweeties? Lollies? Candies? Liquorice Allsorts?

Yesterday we popped over to the 'warehousing' section of one of our lovely science museums where they were having an open day. Among the exhibits a lovely friendship quilt in which one of my daughter's friends participated, the AIDS quilts, so sad, so delicate and providing tribute to those who had died from HIV infection. Then, we came across this!

Once designed as a novelty bicycle for the Gay and Lesbian Mardis Gras, this gorgeous thing is one of three amazing bicycles now used as a 'diversion' in Guide Dog Boot Camp to teach our lovely pups to stay focussed and not be distracted by such colourful yumminess . . .isn't it fun!


  1. My sister would eat that shoe right up!!
    I just mailed her some licorice allsorts :)

    That shoe is a hoot! How cool that it's out to such good use.

  2. i would like to sleep in that shoe for at least one night. i'm serious....
