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.
