More Hands Around My House

Porcelain Glove Molds Displayed in an Arched Window / photograph

All porcelain glove molds... all the time! A total of five porcelain glove molds are displayed in an arched window in my living room. Another six glove molds stand in the kitchen window, facing the street.

Several years ago, two police officers came to my home. They asked to enter so that a discussion could take place. I obliged their request.

Once inside, the two officers started looking around at all the hands. They stopped counting at 40 and then proceeded to ask the reason for acquiring and displaying so many hands. I answered succinctly, "Because I like them."

Apparently this answer was insufficient. I was then asked (in a very serious tone)... "Don't you think that is really strange?"

My reply... "Officer, you have really nice hands."
