Now if I saw you laying there. On a snowy day, would I care? I would call the papers. I know your type, your capers. The right price, you'd lay there bare... Wrank humour, in fun... hugs... Mick PS Nearly forgot, best luck for the contest!

Jan, your demise is the worst news I’ve had all day. However your last words, although probably lost to the cruel North wind, would have at least been poetic. “Ohhhh nooooo.... mon chapeauuuuuu....”
