Bit of a Christmas theme here, Santa and one of his bigger elves pulling a cracker (or seperating the cracker if you want to get technical) Mad busy with work so only a pencil sketch.

Now think carefully about this - it's one of those female loaded questions - they don't want the truth.

IF - Fuel

Will this be the first pig in space since the Muppets?

I hope this isn't giving anyone ideas for Bonfire Night which is fast approaching - judging by the amount of noise outside every night.

Donny Osmond Tribute

I was never a fan of the Osmonds, (Slade were my band) but I did like Crazy Horses, though you could do yourself an injury trying to replicate the dance moves.

Destiny Rides Again

I was watching Destiny Rides Again last night with James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich - obviously they where not on the sofa with me, but you know what I mean - and the bar-tender from the Last Chance Saloon caught my eye.

IF - Beginner

I took my daughter to her swimming lesson tonight and this chap caught my eye, he must be between 70 and 80 years old, and he was there for a swimming lesson too - proving right the adage "your never too old to learn".

Another for the Dance

IF - Bicycle

This is based on the Raleigh Chopper bike which was popular in the early 70s when I was but a child it was suppose to be the coolest bike around. Never had one and after having a go on one of my friend's, never wanted one - bit of a deathtrap, difficult to steer and not very pleasant on a long ride.

I'd had a succession of hand-me-downs throughout my bike riding life, the last of which rumour had it, was a handmade Harry Quinn racer, given to me by my dad's lab assistant at Liverpool Poly who's son was a keen racer.

My most spectacular fall from it, was racing down a hill with my brother and friends. The back wheel went from underneath me on a patch of gravel, and I smashed my knee into a manhole cover tearing right across my knee cap - I still managed to cycle home with blood pouring out. I hobbled into the back-garden to ask my mum and dad for a plaster, my dad took one look at my knee and promptly fainted. It was left to my mum to drive me to hospital and have 10 stitches in my wound, the scar was way cooler than any Chopper - still is.

Still had the bike into my thirties when it slowly started falling apart and I had to buy myself a new one though I still have one of pedals somewhere in the shed as a memento.

IF - Cultivated

What a cultivated little chap he is - no ordinary bath time for him.

Wonky Tooth

Spotted this 'arl fella while having a weekend lunch with the family at the Tate Gallery in Liverpool. Not very impressed since they made it self service, and judging by the lack of people in there we weren't the only ones disappointed - it used to be always busy and the staff were excellent. Good sculpture exhibition though.
