Yes it is tongue in cheek, over the time that I have read your threads, you remind me of my best buddy. He was born in Manitoba immigrated to Oz in the 60's last century. He was a gifted geologist(2 degrees up his sleeve), very loyal to his workers, specially in the bush. He worked as a sideline as the state rep for Sea Shepard's, over time he had collected more money in W.A. for their fight to protect the whales than the rest of Australia put together. I hope your book keeps you busy, maybe a book on political cartoons when things get quiet. Regards Fred.
