The real reason there’s a ribbon around the neck of one is that my #3 stepdaughter accidentally knocked the statue off its table and the neck broke off. Then she glued it back rather crookedly before I got home and, when I noticed the break, blamed it on her #2 son. Naturally, I discovered what had really happened, because I always do, whether I want to or not. I tied the ribbon on because I love her anyway. 🙂
