Oh, Hang It
That’s what SADIE MILLIGAN said when someone gave her an oil-painting for her birthday.
The reason for Sadie’s remark was one. because she’d been expecting half-a-dozen pairs of nylons, and, two, because what can a girl do with an old oil-painting except hang it? So, do-it-yourself Sadie collected stepladder and hammer. She should have called in the man next door to hang it for her – then, like most do-it-yourself girls, she wouldn’t have ended up on the floor.
Framed? Yes – the painting, not Sadie, because there’s a consensus of opinion among those who value somebody else’s grandmother in oils that this was deliberate sabotage on Sadie’s part. All we can say is she makes a better picture than the picture.
Sadie, of the long and shapely legs, is a Bonny Scot from Ayrshire. And when she’s not hanging pictures she works for a chemical firm.
