The New Mr. Squid

Things went pretty quickly on finishing the squid. Warm weather and low humidity yesterday reduced drying times drastically allowing me to put a final gloss coat on before nightfall......and then this morning it was totally dry!

The scowl that means business!

Naturally I was excited to give Mr. Squid a try......sort of a maiden voyage on a revamped ship. And when I mentioned  to Ana that the squid was back in business, she of course thought I definitely should go about my morning chores with Mr. Squid along for the ride. And who can argue with Ana?

Having not played with the squid in a while, I was pretty surprised at how easily he slid into place. I think it may have had to do with his fresh, super-glossy coat. Admittedly it wasn't a breeze, and some care and effort had to be taken as is usually the case with something this girthy, but overall it wasn't so bad.

I did take a few shots for posterity of me wearing him for the first time, but I didn't want to unnecessarily flash something like that at readers who may not be interested in such a graphic display. However, if you DO want to see them, drop me a comment and I'll consider posting them. 

Currently the squid is back in his drawer, and my bottom is recovering from the intrusion. And most importantly, Mr. Squid is now back as a possible choice for those days when I am told to plug up.


  1. Hooray for you! (and mister squid!)

    Pictures or it didn't happen!

    1. OK, OK, for YOU I will make sure to post the pictures soon. LOL

    2. Thank you ☻

      You always make my day!

  2. I certainly hope there's not a Mrs. Squid !

    1. Yeah, me too. Female squids are generally much larger than their male counterparts......and I can just about handle this guy. I probably could go a tiny bit larger......but no way could I do much more than that.
