Porter's Possessions | Cormac, the Highland Bull

Yes, we really, really thought the swans were it.  And yes, I'm beginning to sound like a broken record.  But Porter and I biked to Dumbo yesterday (no rain!) and stumbled upon this Highland Bull at the great little shop Re-Pop by the Brooklyn Navy Yard. Porter had to have him.  This purchase, named Cormac, has inspired some wall painting and a taxidermy shuffle. Photos of the re-org/re-paint pending!

Note 1: The Swans have been named Daedalus and Icarus

Note 2: Porter's Possessions was the name of the store our parents owned in Lincoln, Nebraska during the early '80s.  They were the first in town to carry Esprit, along with vintage kimonos, elephant hair bracelets and clothing made of natural fibers.

    Love the bull. How could anyone live without him? And the swans, like the names. Thanks for spicing up my day.

    You know what would be cool? A pig's face on my wall. My wall is painted a beutacious pale pink and a pinkish taxidermied pig's head would be marvelous.

    Someone get me some stuffed animals to hung on my walls ASAP. I have 3 rooms in my apartment and each room has 4 walls, so I need 12heads (preferably cute deer, i hate wild boars, will settle for horses and gazelles, maybe an antilope in there too. Oh and if anyone knows where i can get a zebra head let me know. Thanks so much guys. Au revoir y'all.
