The latest addition to the Common Household are these two felines, who now reside right outside our front door.

They make excellent pets, since they stay outside all the time, even though they were not originally designed to be outside. They are shedding gold paint. Sooner or later they will be naked secondhand lions.
I am told that when they were firsthand lions, they guarded the synagogue ark where the Torah was kept. (If you google “synagogue lions” you can see oodles of images.) Then the synagogue moved to a new building, with a new ark, and these lions were no longer used. My husband found them in a closet at the synagogue. He broke the tenth commandment, and coveted the synagogue’s lions, except maybe it doesn’t count as coveting since the synagogue didn’t want the lions any more.
Sometimes our lions like to party. I mean, if you acquired lions like this, wouldn’t you want them to party?
So far we have gotten no comments from any of the neighbors. I have hesitated to ask any of them what they think.
I just want to add that I don’t have many favorite movies, but Secondhand Lions is one of them. In fact, maybe “Uncle Hub” and “Uncle Garth” would be good names for our lions.
