Then I went to Target and found a 1:9 scale toilet in the toy department. I thought it was funny so I took it home and posted this picture on Facebook.
A couple hours later, I received a message from Jackie Arns Rossi. It read: So. That potty came from Target? I need one to add to my junkyard for a trail scene I call Nature Trail to Hell.
I have wolfdogs, a toxic waste barrel, rebar and beer bottles. Obviously I need a commode. I can also send all this crap along if needed for trail. It’s just a chain link fence with a horse Calmly Trotting By and all sorts of hell going on.
Let me know if you need stuff so I can set it aside when I pack.
And just like that, I had a plan for Western Natural Trail.
I decided to beef up Jackie's set-up with a few extras, most notably a leaking toxic waste barrel filled with Outhouse Snails. The date on the barrel is Erin's birthday.
Then Santana and I went on a bareback trail ride in search of reference pictures.
This entry was so much fun to set up.
I really wasn't expecting to win, but we all know that Erin secretly loves toilets, snails and Jose.Give this man a blue ribbon!
Thanks for the help, Jackie. That was awesome!
