It's true for a mere $560,808.46 dollars you can have your own Fig tree wardrobe made out of 600 hand formed and signed by the artist fig leaves "hurry while supplies last"

Do they take PayPal?

Do they ship two day priority? You know me, I can't wait.

Don't bother... The leaves are probably from Brown Turkey. Perhaps Martin will commission one made with leaves from good dark fig varieties.

Harvey, is it after the trip South? I think the guys in San Diego knew you were not local.

If that what happened, it would be quite funny because the last time this happened to me was when I went from Los Angeles North, to Palo Alto !  Same reason, I guess..

What are you going to do in that blind John?

Hold a fig in your hand and whisper here kitty kitty kitty and clobber it with a bat with the other hand?

Igor, the fraud attempt on my card was from an international origin.  And I have not even started fig hunting in Europe yet.

well I can see the wabbits and sqwols, but wacoons?  I don't think they would taste good to eat, but reportedly they make a nice hat. 

What about deer?  Do they eat figs?

If $560,808.46 is too much I bet you can talk them down to $550,000.

For that kind of money; feeling for any spare change in my empty pockets,
I would wish more for some well needed space (acreage-land) to nourish
all my fig collection, rather than that pure-ugly-junk-gismo!

Enamels are a difficult medium, and the rest of the materials used to fabricate this "tree' are very expensive.  There must be thousands of man hours put into the making of this fancy bush.  At least it's easy on the eyes, unlike some other crap that passes for "art".

No, Mike, I have yet to read Doc Savage, although I may have to start. And I have always found fancy bushes to be worth the man hours. :)

John, I just wondered because you said "Fortress of Solitude"  (that's one of the book titles, and also a place that shows up in many of the stories).  Doc Savage was a pulp superhero from the 20's and 30's.  Some of it later co-opted for Superman.

Mike, I appreciate the information. I had no idea the reference originated with Doc Savage. Was it DC Comics or Siegel and Shuster that appropriated that material? At any rate, I could use a designated cave.

Give it another day or two. It'll hit the discount rack. No one wears figs after Labor Day. It's barbaric.
