  7. I'm just off to the dole office in Aldershot to see if I can get a similar snap.

    All power to your elbow and keep up the good work and all that, but, FFS, what is so special about this photo? Sorry if I've missed the point here......

    Thank you for your bid, Biscuits.

    The history of this photo is that it's one YesItsMe auctioned some years ago. The lady who bought it is now moving to a smaller place, where the photo doesn't fit, and thought we might like to auction it again. As I'm holding the fort whilst YIM is indisposed, I've auctioned it. All money raised will go to a very good cause, and who am I to turn down the possibility of a few quid for PG to spend on wild Spanish living?

    The auction will end at 1900, so those who are annoyed by it needn't suffer longer, and anyone who would like to improve on Biscuits' bid is most welcome.

    I believe that not to be the case.
  14. Is it for the front door, to keep the trick or treaters away?
