To Doyle sneezing gets me Down Joseph Heel shows Doyle the kind of dead Wood that will become a Lively sculpture after he helps nature a How fast can you make it to the floor As you sneeze my time s improving but i still can t get my head Down there fast enough to suit the medical research ers. And i be been practising drop Down sneezing since August. August was when i read an article about the 85 million bacteria that Are shot out All Over the place in one sneeze. Shot out is a Good term because it seems he infectious particles in a really worthwhile sneeze can be projected As High As 300 feet in a second. And they can hang around just waiting to pounce for As Long As half an hour. That s Why some of the experts who know All about the common cold but can t do anything about it say we should head for the floor when we feel a sneeze coming on. Trying to Block those bacteria with a hand or a handkerchief they claim in t Good enough. Better to get your nose Down there with your feet. Then most of the bacteria will come to rest on the floor with less danger of being held in suspension in the air and infecting other people. Hygienic advice hmm and if we re All persuaded to follow it there la be some interesting changes made in our social behaviour throughout the Sneezy season which runs from november to May and longer for the Hay fever set.

Well what do you Call i asked. Wood sculpture it looks almost too that s because nature docs most of said Heel. I just help a he started helping nature about five years ago using Driftwood for the first pieces. But now much of what he uses is dead Wood he finds in the by forests or unusual looking pieces Given him by oth ers. Yellow Cedar he says comes off Best of All the varieties of Wood. It s a Hobby not a business. When i was in the shop an artist from san Francisco came in for the third time he told me to try to persuade Heel to sell him a Mobile he liked. Heel seemed pleased to have it admired but reluctant to sell it. It s just like my handmade he said to me after the artist had left. My wife and i have an expression for it made with no strange hand on it. So it s harder to part with it than to make trouble brewing housewife s Law of averages the same morning that the top of the Coffee Percolator is missing so is the top Button on the Only shirt he s willing to Wear.
