Gumby meets Old McDonald/ Sky Watch

In my imagination, the clouds in this photo are really made of white cotton candy and the barn is cardboard.

Did you know Gumby was created by Art Clokey, who named his character after the clay found on his grandfather's farm?

Aha!! So imagining Gumby on a farm isn't that far out, eh?

Old MacDonald had a farm

I must say that this is almost a perfect photograph. It just has all of the elements and no confusion to worry about. I like everything about it.

I'm conflicted. I love the photograph but at the same time I have a strong desire to just mess something up.
