(The Tree Fort is occupied!)
A big shout-out to my friend Stephen Gardiner, who surprised me with a wonderful gift during last night’s meeting of our monthly supper club.
Stephen remembered that a couple of years ago, I had written on this blog about building a tree fort for St. Williams. My model included a copy of the hand-made sign that graced the tree fort in Calvin and Hobbes and at the end of the post, I asked,
“And where can I find an anthropomorphic tiger?”
Well Stephen – being the talented sort of guy that he is – made me an S scale Hobbes:
Stephen crafted Hobbes as the stuffed toy that adults see, and hand-painted him. Thank you, Stephen: he’s wonderful! And he looks right at home in the tree fort:
I’m sure I can find and kit-bash a suitable Calvin to stand at the base of the tree, singing the password…
If I was a tiger, that would be neat!
