Thank you Google !!

Well, how about that then? As we launch into w/e 2 of the Arts Trail, with O&P safely back here on their mooring, what should Google do but flag up Edward Lear’s 200th birthday on their home-page, with specific reference to The Owl and The Pussycat. For some reason best known to themselves they chose not to refer to us…..                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   As my contribution to the celebration, here is the complete poem as stamped on the hull:

The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea,

In a beautiful wooden boat.

They took some stew and plenty of goo

In case it didn’t float.

But all was well as they rode the swell

Along the British coast

So to builders and donors and muffligate owners

They tippled a hearty toast.

It’s a lovely day here, the sun is shining at last, and we look forward to welcoming this weekend’s visitors to the studios. I’ll be doing a kiln-opening late-morning – disaster or delight?
