Thanks Susanne! :D I've always wondered whose tongue it was but forgot to ask.

I haven't thought of a signature for this forum yet.


I suppose these two elephants you have must be hermit elephants because as they are famously shy creatures you probably doen't even notice them around.

Yes, that's it exactly! :lol: :lol: :lol:
They live under my bed. :wink:

Yeah - somehow I can't see her sitting there with her mouth wide open and her tongue out while someone painted it. :? :lol:

My avatar is a tattoo design, which I think reflects the manic comedy attitude of The Joculator (old word for joker). I might even visit a tattoo parlour one of these days, if ever I'm drunk enough, and have it put somewhere on my person.

The signature has been passed down through the family since the 'incident' in 1902 when even great-aunt Amelia was seen to smile.

Welcome Joculator! I love the signature! :lol:

I was taking a look at your website - looks really interesting. The things you English people get up to with wooden poles and balloons on stick. :shock: :wink:

Balloons? No. They're traditionally dried and inflated ox bladders. A bit of a bu**er to prepare, and a bit whiffy at times, but they last for ages.

You do need an understanding partner, when you have twenty or so of the things up in the attic, drying out by the hot water tank. :lol:

Thanks for the welcome from you and chris.ph

Go here hover your mouse over the Photoshop icon and select 'try' to get an 'evaluation' version that's free for a while. :wink:

I use Jasc Paint Shop Pro, but I've heard some people ranting about a free app called GIMP, which is apparently just as good as Photo Shop.
http://gimp.org/ It might be worth checking out.

Thank you Tony! :D I remembered that you told me there was a trial version out there somewhere. I'll have to give this a try soon. I think Derek told me that we actually have it, but it's a really old version.

I have Paint Shop Pro, and I do really like it. It's just that I've seen people do things with Photoshop that I would love to try. Of course, there's always the possiblitiy that I can do some of it with Paint Shop Pro. Derek keeps reminding me that looking in the manual may answer that question. :roll: :oops:
