This is Sgt. Sandy, she's 63" tall and eats 4' long grasshoppers for lunch.

Made from helium tank, bicycle forks, rebar, pitchfork, exhaust pipe, garden shears, nuts, ball bearings, cotton picker and cotton gin parts, packing straps and ATV muffler

Sandy is pretty darn cute...and HUGE.

I just saw Marlene's 4 ft grasshopper, LOL.
If you guys lived near each other, Heaven knows what would go on.

As for Sandy, considering her size, I figure she will eat anything she darn pleases.
hugs, Karen

I love big GJ and boy is she big. The paint job is fantastical! I wish I had room for something like that.

Sandy is out-of-this-world CUTE. Yippee I see lots more cool designs coming since the stage has been set for some friendly competition.

Don't imagine there will be too many copying this "big bird" Cotton gins & pickers aren't that plentiful! Love the fancy paint job. Looks like he would keep big critters away from your yard & pond. Think he needs a "son" or maybe a lady friend. You probably saw where the police shot the concrete gator the other day!! Bullets would probably bounce off Sandy!! Nice job! Jan

I love it. I need to paint my old rusty bird to give it some bling.

Would Sgt Sandy like to have travelling orders to be stationed in my yard??? I'd be more than happy to add her to our outfit.

Really amazing. I wish I was half as creative as that.
