    I thought I would use a couple of old pictures to make my 8,000th post on here .
    These (which I have recently unearthed) were taken during my professional heydays in the 80's (that's the 1980's...). They were taken during the shooting of a tv commercial for CocaCola.
    Brits of a certain age should recognise the puppeteers as the Spitting Image team. See if you can spot Chris 'Arnold Rimmer' Barry.

    (Footnote: I got the job because I knew the Spits team - we used to all go to the same parties and get drunk together. Definitely a case of 'it's not what you know but whom...' :lol: )

    First, congrats on the 8,000 - I don't know what this place would be like without you.

    Second, nice shot! You really got around, didn't ya! It's amazing who you meet if you're willing to get drunk!

    Third, I'm glad you specified the 1980's... with the way you look, it's hard to tell... ;) love ya... mean it!
