They had cool wood carving when I went to Jamaica, too. Always found these really cool!
Ginnie Hart: I love wood carvings, Emily! Some of them seem so "indigenous." smile
When I was working, that would have summed it up...smile
Ginnie Hart: Me, too, Frank. But I can still commiserate with those who still work. smile

Ha, it is bank holiday monday in the UK ;-)

And...

I have booked an extra day off on Tuesay ;-)
Ginnie Hart: Good for you, Cherry. Sometimes there's a respite...especially once you're retired! smile
She's sticking her tongue out!!! smile Very nice, Ginnie... and definitely sums up the feeling!
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling a lot of people stick their tongues out on Monday, Elizabeth...but not THIS Monday for you and Frank!!! CONGRATULATION, again!
this looks more like a totem than a church carving Ginnie... great image....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I thought of a totem, too, Peter. Very indigenous! Thanks.

Ginnie Hart: Even though some of us don't "work" like that anymore, Elaine, we still remember, right?! smile Thanks.

Ha Ha


That made me smile, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: It looks so "indigenous," Ray, doesn't it. smile

Oddly enough, Ginnie, these are known as "Tongue Pullers"!
Ginnie Hart: Leave it to you to know, Lisl. I'll try not to ever forget that. As I've told others, it looks so "indigenous."

'Can you read my lips'.....
Great find and I love the picture.
The carving has some great details.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Read my lips...I like the idea! I love wood carvings that go back this far in time.

The morning after the night before..
Ginnie Hart: You speak like one who remembers, Chris?! grin
Ah ah, thank you for letting me have a great smile this morning Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: You're more than welcome, Richard. smile
Sure is and what a Monday for Frank and Ellie
Ginnie Hart: Oh, yes, Bill. And to think that 8 years ago today Astrid and I first met on SC! These are huge milestones. smile
You get some funny things in Cornish churches Ginnie, and this is one of them. I wonder how old it is
Ginnie Hart: I'd like to think it's as old as the church itself, Janet...from the 12th century?

trust you to find the perfect image to suit Monday morning smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, it's nice to be amongst the retired, Scarlet, but I do still remember Mondays from my working years (even though I loved my work). :

Describes Mondays perfectly, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: HA! And to think they knew all about it way back then! grin
What a find! it does certainly illustrate well, the feel of Monday mornings.
Ginnie Hart: I guess we can all relate, Mary...even those of us who are now retired!
Ha ha... cheeky little fellow.
Ginnie Hart: LOL, LC. Indeed.

I saw a similar carving (at misericords) in St. Trinity in Stratford-on-Avon- this devilish gesture means naughtiness and sexual innuendo - but there are also other meanings like you and other persons mention!
Ginnie Hart: Astrid found this great link, Philine, of many Tongue Pullers. How's that for getting an education! smile

Someone probably had some private joke going on, when this was carved.
Ginnie Hart: Think of how far back this must go, Louis. Nothing ever changes! smile
I used to have a boss I really would have loved to do this to, as it was I had to wait until I'd left his office, and usually uttered a mild cussword with it as well!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, now you can stick out your tongue and laugh about it, Brian! smile

Well seen. What a wonderful piece of wood and carving
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Anne. I love stuff like this.
Such a perfect image for a Monday!
Ginnie Hart: Even though we're both retired, we still remember, Robin, right?! smile
Someone's had a miserable time!
Ginnie Hart: For a loooooong time, I have a feeling, Tom. smile

That's exactly how I feel on Mondays...and just about every other work day. HaHa
Ginnie Hart: Oh no, Hollie. Monday is okay but not the rest of the work week!
Retirement means every day is the weekend.
Ginnie Hart: You've got that right, Michael...but you still remember what Mondays were like, I'm sure!
an appropriate face, Ginnie grin
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Ayush. smile
Hahaha... good find GInnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Jacquelyn. smile
Just another manic Monday, as Prince would say...
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Larry. smile
