Another day done ...
All deadlines met ...
All systems fully operational ...
All paperwork completed ...
All Bosses happy ...
All staff keen and motivated ...

All pigs fed and ready to fly!

sigh.. how I wish .............. ..

Bernice

Reminds me of the saying, "...when pigs fly". See Wikipedia's explanation at

Hehe... the day when pigs fly - flying pigs always remind me of that RFC1925 (The 12 networking truths), especially part 2.3 --> see here: http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc1925.html

I've got some similar shots, but as the pieces were merchant stuff and people mostly dislike finding images of those in the internet I stayed away from posting them here.

Yes, pj1974, it is a 5cm ceramic figurine which has been sitting beside my desk for more than 15 years faithfully waiting for me to achieve that miraculous 'something' that will allow it to soar into the air in jubilant barrel rolls!

Thanks everyone for your comments.
