You are right. I should have been paying more attention when I read your first comment. All the best, Jim

Actually Jim I'm not correct - I have just realised masel tonite that I'm pretty sure that I've got it all mixed up. The statue is not Lister: it is of course Lord Kelvin - I always get those two statues mixed up. It's Kelvin who is peering sternly downwards with his traffic cone bunnet. It's Lister who peers towards Kelvingrove gallery! So: Kelvin, peering down, is the one with the traffic cone. Am I right or am I right??

Absolutely correct on both counts. Well done. :-) Sorry I have no prizes - a dinner in Acanthus does sound nice. All the best, Jim

Hi Jim. Mystery photies: The silhouette is the statue of Lister across from the bandstand with his newly-acquired traffic cone headgear; and the puddle is, I'm pretty sure, the old footbridge across the Kelvin linking the two sides of the river, just beside the traffic lights at the Kelvin Hall - and that's one of the globes on top of a Kelvin Hall turret that's being reflected... am I right or am I right?? Keep up the good work - and gie's a prize - dinner for two at Acanthus would be nice!! ;o)
