Re: clay pots/Dillon Seed Co


I'll ask Ms. Fatma when she returns from Boston. If I remember.

Yeah! You could hire a bunch of college kids to dress up as Tele-TUB-ies!

BTW - you mentioned Muslims don't use statues - graven images and all that.
This is a fine point, but I should point out that Christians do not worship
Mary. The shrines are simply places to go to pray to ask her to intercede
on your behalf. Do Muslims have intercedents? Or is that intercediaries?

Wow! I like that idea, too. Man, I'm gonna have a yard full of half
buried bathtubs before you know it. It'll be a new Florida theme park.

Jim,
That was funny,   I mean REALLY, REALLY FUNNY.
I wonder, has anyone ever stuck Budda in a bathtub?

Okay, I'm convinced. Tomorrow I will start my quest for a discarded
bathtub. And I will visit one [two, if necessary] of our concrete
statuary merchants to find a virgin Mary that fits inside the bath
tub.
And I will create an Italian shrine somewhere here at the plantation.


Meantime, please remember that Ms. Fatma is Muslim ["not a terrorist,"
I tell people at work while not making eye contact, but occasionally a
Holy Terror] so we may end up with a second bathtub [somehow I don't
think Muslims do this, but I'll ask first--would be really, really
funny if they did; I mean REALLY, REALLY FUNNY] with a statue of
Ali--if the concrete statuary merchants have such [probably not,
because they are mostly Italians, cranking out Marys and like most
Italians and/or Americans, have no idea who Ali was].

Mardi !!!!! I grew up in Chicago and believe me Chicago has plenty of Our Lady of the Bathtub shrines! You must have just been in the wrong neighborhoods!

it's right up there with my desire to get an old,
footed cast iron bath tub & making a water feature/water garden out
of it.


Eva, in some small towns in Iowa it is not unusual to see a bathtub
half-buried horizontally in front of a house with the Virgin Mary in
the
enclosure! Having grown up in Chicago, I'd never seen anything like
it!
