Excellent work. Well deserved first place awards. So Flick......what's the next theme going to be? Not "Cavorting with Animals" I trust? Else Mr. Slack The Elder would surely have an advantage. Best wishes, David

So Flick......what's the next theme going to be?
All will be revealed shortly (no, it's not going to be nudes)
Not "Cavorting with Animals" I trust? Else Mr. Slack The Elder would surely have an advantage.
Nah, he wouldn't, he's only got that one photo with the goat.

.....ferrets, gerbils, and sheep. Really quite kinky that Mr. Slack. And then of course there is his "Fun with Green Wellies" opus, which I believe won some national award for livestock photography. I understand that he is presently compiling a sequel, to be titled "View From the Rear". One can only dread the worst, if you know what I mean. Still, he does seem to have his animal loving fans. Best wishes, David

Ferrets and sheep I can understand - but gerbils???

Fancy an American knowing what green wellies are. If you wear green wellies, it's compulsory to drive a Saab.

A Range Rover, surely.

Only if you're a bit of rough and wear lots of bling.

I don't know anything about correlations with automobile makers.....but I was given to understand that Mr. Slack finds the wellies useful when he is feeling....uh.....amorous, around livestock.

I't the rubber...

Well, I don't know if there's a rubber fetish involved or not.......but I DO suspect Mr. Slack understands that, for his barnyard partners of interest, spermicidal precautions are generally not necessary.

too much information, David. BTW, is it just me or is dpzen docking the message from everybody when you click on reply? Blasted retrograding Mercury.

It's not just your messages, Flick; at least mine are also among the docked. It does stretch the short-term memory to reply when the previous message is missing! Kim -- -- this was probably off topic! -- http://www.mybritpix.com http://www.pbase.com/katybee/galleries

Kim, cut and paste the message into the new blank one, then put > to the left of each line of the quote, then it will appear in red when your reply gets posted.

Flick Just click on "quote" intead of "reply"... Not another blonde moment, surely -- Quentin http://www.brightnewlight.co.uk http://www.barleigh.com

I'm afraid so...not doing very well am I? It's that Jenkins bloke, he's scrambled my brain. But I'm so used to the reply containing the quoted message that I never noticed the quote option. I'll have to stop streaking my hair - it's getting blonder and blonder and my brains are disappearing.

Hi there you lascivious lot bugger bling - bestiality is beautiful View: original size kind regards-- Jono Slack http://www.slack.co.uk

Hi there you lascivious lot bugger bling - bestiality is beautiful
But I see the sheep is backed right out of the picture. Which is maybe why you're doing improper things to large vulgar jewelery?

...could someone please explain what is "bling"? I'm sure it's just another ubiquitous British colloquialism, like the American terms "humma humma" and "zoom zoom", but "bling" is unfamiliar to me... Does one wear "bling" with green wellies? puzzled, Kim

Kim, I'm not sure that bling is British. i think it was Jamaican in origin. It refers to the sort of loud, vulgar gold jewelry that includes sovereign rings, identity bracelets (not the medical type) and the sort of chunky neck chains worn by gentlemen with hairy chests and their shirts unbuttoned to the waist. Apologies to anyone here who likes that style - this is purely my opinion.

I'm a bit of rough and can't afford decent bling, (if that's not a contadiction in terms), but I can stretch to a prawn sandwich (remember Ratner?). Q.

(remember Ratner?).
It's Hindu for jewel i believe (as well as being an erstwhile alternative to H.Samuel)

Actually its English for a total prat (AKA one Mr Ratner) who blew his company by making a joke at a business reception in which he said a prawn sandwich would last longer than some of his jewellery! -- Quentin http://www.brightnewlight.co.uk http://www.barleigh.com

but also hindu for jewel But maybe that's a different spelling. Don't know, me bimbo.

It is a different spelling. My brain has obviously finally retired completely. still, bit of a coincidence, don't you think, that a jewelry chain person should have a name that is nearly the Hindu name for jewel. Maybe he should have been Mr Bling.

Nicely done you two! Albert

Thank you all, I'm afraid I at a loss for words. However, that said, I would like to say that the tuba in the picture has a long history. My Uncle played it in the German Army band before the first world war. I inherited it when I was a kid. It is really super strong. I don't think you'd want to try that with a modern tuba.

Thanks Warren for an interesting theme and all your hard work. Congratulations Kate, Quentin, Albert, Warren, Shelby, Silas and David. Albert, i see that, despite asking me to announce your congratulations and thanks, you've done so yourself. Road trip cancelled? The new theme will be posted shortly...just as soon as I've managed to get my eyes sufficiently open (whoever said that gran Flick.dparenting was a joy wasn't living in the same house as their ten month, insomniac granddaughter!).

Morning Flick:) Nope... road trip went well and I returned late last night as planned. Thanks again for consenting to help me out:) Albert

Many congrats to Flick and to Shelby on your well deserved wins. Also thanks to Warren on a fascinating and tricky theme! I'm pretty chuffed (i.e. happy, for our American cousins understanding) to come joint second in such strong company, and thanks to those who liked and voted for my shots. Now, to the future, and no doubt Flick will torture us all with some suitably challenging theme Quentin

First of all to Warren - for a great theme and then, especially, to Flick and Shelby for deserved winners, and to everyone else who placed as well - I'm still sulking! kind regards-- Jono Slack http://www.slack.co.uk
