« on: October 19, 2010, 11:53:03 PM »

You know you are from Llandudno if you have spent time speculating who OSCAR is.   L0L

You're a bit slow Fester, all that speculation ended months ago. It was only last week that I purchased a lovely 17.1 x 11.4 inch very high resolution photograph of Oscar, for $299.95.

If anyone's interested in obtaining one, you can order them from here:

The speculation NEVER ends,  though I believe he is a 'buddy' of yours...

The avatar leads me to suspect a connection with the Pier .....   but then again,  I don't care THAT much ...mildly interested I would say.

An avatar is that little symbol you chose to accompany your name..... yours is the flag of The Church in Wales isn't it?

Oscars is a mysterious man ... on the Pier!

Oscar's avatar is, in fact, a well known picture called "a Person's shadow on wooden boards".  Was available on Flikr but seems to have disappeared.     )*)&
