Better than Turner?

Probably not. This fits in with my current obsession with steam ships. I know why this is and it won’t go as far as Turner allegedly did to ‘get the shot’ – strapping himself to the mast during a storm…

I prefer what I wrote about Turner on here on another occasion, but the words are all gone to bed for today now. The words can sleep through bomb like fireworks apparently. I cannot. And neither can the guest, a dog, who barks at every effin one. My own dear hound sleeps like the words through the lot, at my side. Damn them.
