The Chicken and The Sabretooth

chicken iron work for the yard

Going to the Carlsbad Street Fair yesterday was so much fun, especially when you're with a friend. I always like to take my time, walking up and down each row of vendors. At the end of one of the tents I spotted some outdoor yard and garden ironwork chickens with their festive blue feathers. Do you have some artwork around your lawn or garden path?

For Blue Monday

sabretooth bounce for the childrensabretooth at the local street fair

Along the food court at the local street fair I turned the corner towards the fun zone for the children, and... this huge Sabretooth tiger bounce for the kiddos took me by surprise. It seemed just right for Mandarin Orange Monday For more information regarding the Sabretooth, watch this national geographic video

Wikipedia says:

Sabretooth (Victor Creed) is a fictional character, a Marvel Comics supervillain created by writer Chris Claremont and artist/co-writer John Byrne. The character first appeared in Iron Fist #14 (August 1977). Originally portrayed as a non-powered serial killer, Sabretooth is later written as a mutant who possesses bestial superhuman abilities, most notably a rapid healing factor, razor-sharp fangs and claws, and superhuman senses. He is a vicious assassin responsible for numerous deaths both as a paid mercenary and for his personal pleasure.
The character Wolverine is depicted as his long-time enemy, although conflicting accounts have been given as to the origin of their feud. It is also known that he and Sabretooth were victims of the Cold War supersoldier program Weapon X, and that Sabretooth saw Wolverine as competition and tried to make his life miserable. While Wolverine is depicted as suppressing his more savage qualities, Sabretooth does the opposite and embraces them.
Sabretooth has appeared in several X-Men animated series and video games. Played by Tyler Mane, he was a henchman of Magneto in the first X-Men film and X-Men: The Official Game. Liev Schreiber plays him in the 2009 film X-Men Origins: Wolverine. In May 2008, Wizard magazine ranked Sabretooth #193 of the 200 best comic book characters of all time. In 2009, Sabretooth was also ranked as IGN's 44th Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time.

You wouldn't happen to have one of these around your place, would you?
