Superb picture David.  The mouse is actually looking at the camera but still want to keep eating  I'm glad that the proceeds went to a worthy cause.  I'll be watching Bargain Hunt to make sure that Charles  Hanson doesn't try selling it for double the price

 

Thanks, Lesley never thought of that.  We made just over £3000 on the night, so not a bad outcome.

Thanks ladies....I posted it because I thought it was a masterpiece of opportunism.

There is a little story to go with this.

Our club holds an auction on the last day of term (July) proceeds going to our local hospice......members donate the auction items. The picture of the 'Harvest mouse' was framed & donated by the member who took it.

This year Charles Hanson (TV auctioneer) did the honours and immediately fell in love with the picture, saying he would love to take it home for his wife.....anyway, it was finally knocked down (to him) for £55.

Probably an auctioneer bidding in such circumstances isn't strictly PC, but it was just a fun night and didn't really matter.

 I didn't take this myself, it was taken by a fellow member of our camera club. However, I'd like to show it as I think it's a pretty remarkable shot.

New camera ordered 

 

Wow...that's brilliant.   Bought one for my son-in-law as a big birthday pressie recently....mainly because they were visiting the Maldives to celebrate.

The pictures were amazing, so I'm looking forward to seeing your shots, fidget.

Frank, you're taking it too serious. Wires often get crossed on these forums mainly because sense of humour is difficult to portray using text. Given the time I've known you, you must realise that much of what I say here is just light-hearted banter and have always been your No1 fan.

Music taste? Perhaps Lily & I have a wider spectrum.  "Boy bands & Spice girls" erm  I am over 21, Frank.

Just as thought there was hope for Frank ......seems we are the only ones with taste, Lily.

David, Big surprise, listening to the radio with one ear turned off yesterday suddenly they were playing retro Blondie, turned both ears back on and enjoyed, she was good and still is so not all classics then.

Frank.

Good for you, Frank  ....you see, enjoyable music does exist outside the classics.

I've never been a fan of Cliff Richard, but (IMHO) he does an excellent job with this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1obRHLmQ3gw     I just love it!
