….

Once upon a time there was a colourful crown. Everyone who walked past it oohed and aahed…

…but they knew not what existed within the crown. In its depths lay a sinister pool called “Version Two”...

...where bad things happened…

In Newcastle this morning we saw a dead pigeon being dismembered by a herring-gull. A small group of elderly ladies stood nearby, humming and ha-ing and tut-tutting as though "it ought not to be allowed!" They are both vermin (I mean the pigeon and the herring-gull, not the elderly ladies - really I do Tongue) and that is what vermin do!

Puts me in mind of the old joke Andrew about the diner who said to the waiter,
''What's this fly doing in my soup''.
To which the waiter replied,
''I think it is the back stroke sir'' !!
Good shots.
