Aliens Attack the Cross House!

 

t

See the round tower? See the finial on top? Well, today I arrived at the house and…

 

...

…the finial was gone! GONE!

 

It is obvious what happened. ALIENS FROM THE PLANET ZOT TOOK IT!

Wow!

Right, I know!

I have long suspected that the finial was, in actuality, an intergalactic transmitter. And I now realize that it must have stopped working (a broken krypton fuse?), so the Zot aliens must have taken it to an outer-dimension repair shop.

Right?

Well, I just hope…oh wait…what?…OH MY…

 

 

ALERT!

ALERT!

THIS IS AN INTERGALACTIC TRANSMISSION FROM THE PLANET ZOT!

MESSAGE CONTINUED: We have repaired our Intergalactic Transmitter, but due to a union issue, were unable to reinstall the transmitter on the turret. So, we left it in the library. We apologize for any inconvenience. Sincerely, ZOT.

 

OK. Maybe none of this is true.

Maybe the finial was removed by Groh & Sons so they could begin re-roofing the turret.

Maybe.

    I had my aluminum foil space hat on and was ready to help defend the Cross house! I’ll keep it close by just…in…case…..

    OMG!!! It’s huge!!!

    By the way, I lovvvvvvvveeeeeee the fireplace. Especially the figures on the tiles. It is magnificent, joyously beautiful. The fixtures in this house amaze me each time I get the opportunity to see something I’ve not noticed in the daylight before.

    But I agree, the ZOT’s have come and gone. As a union rep, retired, I fully understand. You’ve never negotiated a contract until you’ve worked on ZotInt Local #23945’s contract.

    BTW that finial is much larger than I imagined. Can you give us measurements so we have a real concept of size? Can it be reproduced for the other tower now?? So many????

    It probably runs on single socks stolen out of dryers…

      Ahhh, yes, that would explain a lot.

    Ross, love it, an amazing piece, man how long have you just stared at it? My apologies but my curiosity is getting the best of me, would it be possible to put some sort of known size object next to it to get a true scale, maybe a yard stick? How about the weight?
