Looks lovely. May lead to reduced QL productivity in the Dunbar household from the 20th... :twisted:


I suspect you may be right there Dilwyn. We get him home at 9 weeks, so I suspect carnage will reign.

Cheers,
Norm.

Ah, ok. I never watched it. Will have to check Wikipedia sometime.

MrsD named him Wesley as she, quote, "always wanted a dog called Wesley".

Cheers,
Norm.

Wesley Pegdon is my fave character. He spent of his time in an oily overall tinkering with old bangers :D

That could have been a younger me! Honda motorbike mechanic! I love engines and hate what people do to "soup them up". Cringeworthy.

Cheers,
Norm.

I'm sure the Dunbars will love him. Likely to have quite a Crush(er) on Wesley? :D (sorry, Star Trek joke)

Hi Dilwyn,

I'm afraid I haven't watched Star Trek since they stopped showing t he original series from the 1960s. :(

I've only seen the first Start Wars too - the original one that is, not the ones they shoehorned in before it!


Cheers,
Norm.

Indeed. I was lucky enough to know him both times he came to the QL world, back in the 1980s and then when he returned a couple of decades later. He was editor of Quanta mag for some time and there was nothing he loved more than learning new things about the QL.
