Hey Holly, thanks for the info dude. I shall endeavor to get a pic of T'uther side.

@MrDink, yes it does get an outing at Atherton. Make yourself known to me bud. Everyone now knows me as Peg due to my Broken Knee.

Alternatively get my number off Ben and make an arrangement and I shall bring it just for you.
