Artist's Description

A two headed lamb!!
This “trick” photo reminds me of the story my Dad told me as I stopped to take this pic in the area of his early life.
This was “Black Johnny’s” house. Two brothers who loved practical jokes lived there. A favourite of theirs was for one brother to climb the large tree in front of the house and which still stands today. The other brother would have a gun casually at hand at the roadside, and after striking up a conversation with an unsuspecting passerby, would take a sporting pot shot at the first bird flying in the general direction of the tree.
At the sound of the shot, the brother in the tree would let out a cry of pain and fall limply to some hay hidden from view, and to the great shock of the passerby.
What passed for fun in the old days in the Irish country side!!
I’m just sorry I never saw the “trick”, but I love that I can see the sly shadow of the tree on the old house.
