|07:59 am - carousel ponies on parade|
There are painted carousel ponies all about the town, as of a day or two ago. It's a art project, different artists decorated them and they'll be auctioned for charity some time in January. I've only seen three or four, but there is one I pass during the work week at the Harbor Steps that is in the style of Van Gogh's Starry Night that I particularly like. It was the first one I saw, as well.
One of the people the P-I talked to said "Ponies are so bourgeois." Unlike last-time's pigs, apparently. Clearly this person has never read Animal Farm.
Well at least they aren't ducks like down this way. Every year more huge decorated ducks show up around town. I know people buy them from the auction, but then they never seem to go anywhere, they just keep piling up.
