As there seems to be quite a bit of artistic talent around here, I thought I would start a pencil sketch section .....

A gin pulley, that sounds like something i might need!

This greening swift, don't it pong a bit if it is milk?
I like how you've made the pig look so happy, what sort of tools do you use for the job and where do you get the stone?

Bradders...why are people up and down the country looing like they've had a shock?

Belle, spill over from dialect corner but usage of 'gin' as in gin pulley is a corruption of 'engine' which was the archaic name for almost any mechanism. 'Jenny' as in spinning jenny comes from the same root as does cotton gin.

Swifty,if you want to age the pig use "natural yoghurt",we often get advised by architects to use it on new patch pointing so it soon blends with the existing,its the bacteria that does it,none left in milk these days,as you will know...

I knew what you meant Bradders,but i shake my head at the same time and refrain from screaming,Wink.

I used to use milk and green spring cow muck mixed. Looked like lichen when you painted it on.

Far easier to get lichen on stone these days than in the years before the Clean Air Acts. The stone used to go black but no lichen, the chemicals killed it. Notice that any building that's cleaned these days starts to go green in no time.

Belle ...You beat me to it....Tom has got him to a tee.

I've played with a lot of "Harp" players over the years,  and from time to time they all  develop that "far away" look.

I think its something to do with the fact that in blues harmonica, there is much more suck than blow (literally) They have to listen internally to the music in their head. And they cannot watch the instrument.

Magic Tom !
