My grandfather had a finished basement with a bar that he built. Hell, he built the whole house, actually. The shelves behind the bar were packed with glassware, weird ice breakers, nut crackers, and various measuring and stirring devices. There was almost the same amount of space devoted to novelty bottles (shaped like monks and monkeys, oddly enough), the prerequisite hollow coconut, and assorted knickknacks, including several character sculptures made out of welded nuts and bolts. Pop’s metal people weren’t skateboarding however, they were doing things like golfing and standing around. I imagine them practicing their lines for an upcoming casting call in a “You want it when??!!” sign. This particular sculpture was spotted over at Troy Sliter’s house several years ago. I just found it while cleaning out the old hard drive. Time for a cocktail, maybe I’ll head out on the lanai and have a sweat on the davenport while I eat some filberts.
