The winner of the 1999 (I think) George Town Regatta Pet Parade had a wig just like that. He was a dachshund. His pet human had one too.

Capt Cook was from Middlesborough. Can you imagine Mark with a Geordie accent? Can you imagine Cook with a Geordie accent?

The mind boggles.....

Forget blindness, I was thinking that he will have an unbearable cramp in his hand(s), and not able to work the winches..

As for the avatar, I likes, as I was involved in several colonial groups myself.. Great look and fun!!

I thought that as well, (just a slight correction- Cook neither invented nor discovered Australia, as my indigenous mates say - it wasnt lost - it was here all the time. )
