HH!

Senga!

There's a thought though. 'Your name on a vane'. Works for all existing weather vanes as long as you name's an anagram of NSEW, like 'WEE WES ' or something. Would work for product advertising too - 'E E NEWS' for example.

Spotted a rather nice one in topping an ornamental feature in a garden in Langside Drive today.

Your welcome PK, I think all of us on the walk took a photo of that building with the weathervane, I don't know if anybody else took a zoomed shot tho.

I did get this one:->Click Me< :wink:

Interesting pic Ms AD. Notice that the 'N' and the 'E' have succumbed to the elements; much as my livingroom ceiling did (again) during last night's tempest, thunder and hailstone maelstrom.

Very lovely image Mr Pj. Kind of Poppinsesque with it. All it needs is a sweep's 'ead a-poking out of that there chiminee.
