As i explained in my e-mailed reply Bru
due to the severe hijacking/disconnect problem on my laptop. I am having to try to restore the programmes from the friggin recovery disk but (never trust Sony for anything other than trouble) it ain't bloody workin'. So I cannot access my picture editing programme. which would not have been necessary if you had scanned the pic correctly in the first place. Anyway I don't think cropping it would have slowed ol' Bill up

I thought he did a bit, until I read the David Bowie comments. Then it was all over. Sorry Silverheels. But I can kinda see the connection...

Ah, the ultimate mindbender, "is David Bowie Ziggy Stardust". He was then, I don't know if he still is...

actually I always thought Bowie truly was a Lad insane although I found one reference to a lad inane which is how this oldtimer views much of Bowie "music"


But back to she who must be obeyed. after much swearing and cussing my laptop is rejuvenated so I have reinstalled MGI Photosuite and have cropped and enlarged Bru's pic.
I still think it remarkably Gordlike but as I said before cropping does not enhance the impression IMHO
