Well, wandered along today, got there later than intended but that was ok as it wasn't a performance, just a display of the four puppets - Mr. Squiggle, Blackboard, Bill Steamshovel, and Gus the Snail.
I say "just a display," but of course I was in seventh heaven. Spent around an hour looking at and photographing the puppets, and will chuck some pictures up when I'm back in Canberra. What was nicest was people's reactions. Older folks being delighted, great big beefy guys with mullets pausing to give Bill a good look, a bunch of late teen boys in branded oh-so-hip-and-cool clothes excitedly taking pictures of one another in front of Mr. Squiggle.
My favourite was a woman and her two friends. She took one photo with her phone's camera and then went, "What?! What do you mean memory full?" had a think for all of five seconds, then said, "I'll just have to delete my nieces!" I was doubled over with laughter.
I'm very glad I have a few episodes on tape for when Nibblet finally makes an appearance.
Was going to try and respond to a few of the comments on other posts, but my legs are hurting, bed is beckoning, and I have an early start tomorrow. So goodbye for now, my dears!
