Signs of home (VII): Kookaburras

"Thou shalt not covet thy parents' vintage kookaburra-shaped ceramic jugs" ...or something.

I've wanted these for sooo long. They belonged to my Nanna and Pa, and I was always fascinated with them as a kid. For years the kookaburras sat above the fireplace next to the mantle clock in their lounge room at Duncan Road. Now my parents have them above a fireplace next to a mantle clock in their house.

I'm going to have to get me a fireplace and a mantle clock, I reckon.
