Hi, blackswan 555,

Kind of you to introduce yourself. Never had seen a black swan before we sailed to Oz. Beautiful they are! Probably good eating as well, but we wouldn't know, might even be set aside for the Queen or something!

Look forward to seeing more of your posts.

PS, I'd posted a while under Jim's avatar before I finally joined CF on my own, life's what it is, sometimes weird.

Ann
