Zucchini glamour contest
February normally marks the great zucchini glut as I have written about before... well this year, 'someone' (we know who you are) came up with the idea that everyone should bring a dressed up zucchini to the monthly movie night at the Palais Theatre in Franklin on Sunday. The judging took place during the half time supper break between the reels of film. Below is my favourite entry. It didn't win... an 'Elephant Man' themed zucchini with a paper bag over its head won, followed by the cleverly named Houdini Zucchini tied up in ropes. Last night's movie was an Aussie film called 15 Amore. Despite featuring some familiar faces, I had never heard of it before. It was a pleasant little film about life in wartime in regional Australia, but it must be said that the zucchini beauty contest was almost as entertaining. Oh dear.
