"So, I'll Be Along With Another Unicorn in About a Month..."

One thing in short supply these past few months has been random conversational snippets as passers-by go about their business.  By which I mean, random snatches of conversation that last about 20 seconds, are complete in themselves, but beg sooo many further questions.

Well, like people themselves, it seems they're back around these parts, and,

 "So I'll be along with another unicorn in about a month,"

 is one of  *the* best such snippets I've ever heard.

Naturally, it made me stop eating my lunch and look up. (Well you would, wouldn't you?)

And the person who said it turned out, indeed, to have just delivered a unicorn. Just not quite the type you might be imagining.

The unicorn in question was a pedalo, being delivered to a  recreational lake near us, with the head and neck of a unicorn in plastic, with the rest of the pedalo being suitably boat-shaped behind it. Said unicorn was joining its friends the dragon, swan and flamingo pedalos.

The strange thing...

The strange thing is, even though the pedalo was plastic,  I haven't been able to get more mythological unicorns out of my head since. The idea of them just would not leave me alone until at least one had been drawn, written about here,  and made available in more ways than I might normally choose or think about for a design like this. Hence all the many variarions of the unicorn design on the pics in this post.

Back soon

Now, unlike the speaker in the title, am not aiming to be away from the blog for a month.

But there won't be a post next week. I'll leave you to enjoy this unicorn for now though, and promise that there will be more soon.
