Fabulous! Thank you.

Never realised some of his boats were that big, even more fabulous!

I haven't dared read the article yet.  :)
I'm saving it for a day when I think I can cope with a full dose of unrequited lust.  8)

I've seen them in big Art Glass shops in Amsterdam.  Real, very big ones.
It's difficult to even think about them, I want one, so much.
It would have to be one with Janus brains in it...

How would I know where it was going, if it didn't have at least one?  ;D
