Anyone attending the 2006 House of Peers’ Harmony Kingdom Convention in Phoenix knows where Peter got the idea for “Neighborhood Watch II”. The Saguaro cactus, native to the American Southwest and Northern Mexico, is an impressive sight and often likened to a hotel because it acts as host to so many creatures. Peter’s “hotel” includes an owl, rattlesnake, jack rabbit, gilded flicker, Gila monster, desert tortoise, long nosed bat, tarantula and pocket mouse. The interior depicts a Kokopelli, the Native American fertility deity that presides over children and agriculture and represents the spirit of music.
On the lid’s rim, notice the extra hallmark that looks like a small snake with a cross through it. Peter says there are “precious few jobs I could do if I weren’t playing with plasticene all day.” He was alarmed when he recently discovered that one of these alternative jobs was no longer available to him. At the ripe old age of 46, he is no longer eligible to become a sperm donor in the UK!
