Cylla it was a toss up whether it would be a Ranger or a Tide, and as I wanted to do it in a oner, I settled for the smaller.

I'm afraid prescriptions will have to be the order of the day. A 'straight' Painting is just getting an idea then putting it on the paper, eg the last two pictures. Tanker , Frigate going along side, end of story.

LIMBO, I got the basic idea then you have to think of all the other little pics that are going on within the whole.

Ivor do you have the book "Jack Speak" if not I would reccomend that you try and get it, I usualy get sore cheeks from the stupid grin on my face every time I read it.

It is a dictionary of words and phrases used in the RN and RM writen by Rick Jolly of Falklands fame.

Jim , it,s lucky you didn't think of a "DALE " tanker.....you would have the ships company playing 5 a side ,on her upper scupper,while the supporting frigate stations on her to keep score...with a cheering crowd.

Well Im glad to see that folks are getting the message, and fully understand the neccessity for the utmost discretion.

I have sent under discrete cover a small floral tribute to the lady in question in appreciation of the splendid job she did in the face of adversity, not to mention the Leering looks of numerous 'matelots', I took the liberty of using the admirals 'plastic'to complete the transaction,under his name.

regards

Ps If my wife (who is recovering well) and is sitting embroidering,looked over my shoulder and saw this, she would have me commited.

'Committed' ...ye gods Jim don't you end up in the sick bay waiting for a straight jacket brigade, just because of the vagaries of the hoy p'loy and their goings on!!!

Dont worry guys, I think she is used to my warped sense of humour after 48 years of 'wedded bliss'.

I had a near disaster last night. My wife had left one of her 'pieces' out side the back door on the garden table to dry, on a black poly bag held down with bricks.I went out to clear the stuff away, lifted the brick took her piece out, put the brick down on the table, missed the table and the brick landed on my foot.

It did'nt hurt too much at the time but by bed time I could hardly walk. However today it's ok. I had a horrible thought of the two of us on crutches, and being accused of malingering.
