Basket Head

OK, not strictly true that it's a 'basket head' more a 'basket helmet' but it sounds good. But how did this come to be you might ask? Maybe not then, but I'm going to elaborate anyway. After all, if your here reading this then you must have some interest in whats going on in this world of mine. Or it just gives you a good giggle every now and again, not that I claim to be a comic genius, after reading some of the posts that 'SafeT' writes I laugh out loud. Anyway, I'm just rambling, typing what ever spiel comes into my head at the moment. So the 'basket helmet'...
Jax has had this idea for a while and I had a old helmet that I no longer wear due to its old age, I know it doesn't look to bad. But I do allot of riding and I try to replace my helmets at least every 4 years, this is due to the fact that the material in the helmet takes allot of abuse. Exposure to things like rain, dirt, hair grease and other things. So you can't be sure that its still to the same standard a new helmet is, on top of that the helmet has take a few knocks and bumps over the years so 4 is a good age. Anyway Jax had a idea to make a hanging basket from the helmet, but never got round to it, till last week. When she bought it in to the living room and asked me to rip the liner and foam padding out, just leaving the polycarbonate shell. Jax then slowly drilled 3 holes for the chain, attached, lined, filled with dirt, and then planted. So there you are, don't it look lovely and unique.

For some reason, I can't get the picture to show up on the Missus Macintosh.
My laptop, suffering from a problem with its power connector, is dry and won't boot.

Poop. Sounded a treat, what with the ol' nut shell a hanging like that.
I've done the same with my retired socks, using them for plantings. As long as they're 100% cotton, works well.

And thanks for the compliment. I've been less amusing lately, due to a "Dearth"'ll pass, I'm sure of it.
