This is an old shoe last I bought at the auction a couple of years ago. I had to bid quite high to get it, because one of my equally goofy rivals for odd stuff wanted it too. He tried to make me promise I wouldn’t put it out in the garden and let it rust, but I managed to get out of it.

It goes in the garden in the fall to protect the remaining vegetables from deer and rabbits. The cobra/snake form scares them – perhaps. Actually it doesn’t really work very well, but I do it anyway. Best is a combination of l lights, moving objects, noise and chicken wire.

This object was seen in an earlier blog.
