well, i know i'm on the list to get Gulliver but i'm in the states and i'm sure there's somewhere else in Europe he'd like to see first. but, if no else steps up to plate, i'ld be glad to take him next.
If you send him downunder I can give him a farm experience. And off the top of my head there's a few other Aussies who can take him in and entertain him, inspirepub, earnest and that Tasmanian fella Eric Graudin's.
Eric is Tasmanian, and has the appropriate number of heads. I think a bear would be good for him, as he is stuck on a piece of jetsam floating off the Victorian coast and a bear would make a nice change from his Tasmanian tiger.
OOOOOOOOwwwwww.... Eric & Eric are special Earnest!! You have to take your hat off to a Tasmanian who refused to shave off or otherwise remove, the secondary appendage on his shoulders. Can you image the looks he & he get from those in Hobart with perfectly manicured bikini & neck lines? Good on you Eric & Eric... the bear will love it.
Seems that who ever gets the bear next will need to straighten him out a little. All those addictions. *shakes head*
And DS? There was a holla or four from Australia. Along the lines of 'let's us have him first, once he gets to the US he'll be there forever'. I think NZ jumped in to. Maybe your side of town would be a good idea.
So Pleased you prepped him so well for a trip Downunder Mark.. If he comes to NZ from Australia after doing the rounds.. He will arrive in time for the Bumble Town Rutting Season!! I assume you had that wee talk to him before he left France?
If he gets to Tasmania before 18th of September, I'll make sure he takes part in KOKORO - our Taiko drumming concert which is taking place in hobart. see www.TaikoDrum.com (See if you can find the pics of me playing )
I'll also take him for tea at Brian Ritchie's Japanese teahouse and hopefully get a photo of them sipping tea together. (Yes, this is Brian of Violent Femmes fame, who now lives in Tasmania, and will be playing shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute) at the above concert.
There's also some other stuff planned for him, but that will be a surprise Cheers, Eric G.
Great pics, I love this kind of thing. I read in the paper once about a garden gnome that was stolen from someone's front garden, and then a couple of years later he was put back along with a photo album of him travelling the world.
Ok - thankyou to those that have already said 'yes' Here's how I (think) it will work.I'm going to send Gulliver tomorrow, to his first destination. If I can get Mark Knowles address that is. He's going to start in...
Gulliver has arrived in Tasmania just in time for Christmas.He's had a very eventful first day.http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=1 … a2a310bedcHe's sleeping soundly now, and is sure to have an exciting time...
In Australia. He'll need intensive care to help him deal him with his adiction issues. The worst (I'm told) are his incessant attempts to bikini watch. It's potentially illegal I imagine and I hope he gets it under...
Here's a few of the things he got to see and do when he arrived in rural Australia: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 … 1062945257See the second part of his downunder adventure in Gulliver the Bear Arrives...
