What a great shot, Dave! Love his pose. Did you ever figure out why they put the mud above the hole?

Wink Wink I'm just waiting for him to fit little square windows now and paint it in an unusual colour, M ! I think the Nuttys have got Cosmic planning permission fine. The pair are well sorted in that respect Wink
