I do seem somewhat staircase obsessed Lawler
- a lot of up-and-down-stairs travel every day may
account for it...

I hope that's not a harpoon in that chap's hand then.
This was where things got a bit dodgy before with the whale before it turned into yellow sub -
and even funnier now I think about it, that your whale was what I took for a rock.
You'll be aware of ancient tales where seafarers land on what they think is an island... which then starts
swimming off. First of all I painted a whale - then my little joke was to put a man on the whale's back as
if he seen an island, rowed out to it, then up comes the whale rising higher out of the water -
then realized it could be misconstrued as a whale-hunt situation... not a joke. By that stage I had the little
man, and his boat, which I rather liked so didn't want to scrape out, so I tried the domesticated-whale transport
notion for a few months, eventually deciding that was still a bit dodgy... yellow sub.
So no harpoon - but it was supposed to be a spoon as oar (I find spoons amusing
) until yesterday I thought
best make it even more oar-like for that very not-to-be-confused-with-a harpoon reason.
Worse than that - a possible opportunity to exhibit the whole thing landed on my doorstep this morning so
I've got to try and finish this off + the 5th section, to get digital images to a selection board by the end
of next week
Glad I didn't hear about it sooner or I'd not have been here this week finding helpful suggestions
