    I gotta to admit, this was one of the strangest turn of events that one of my photos has caused?
    Hope it turns out well.

    Well now, that would be a heartening outcome, Jack. Shades of Luke Chapter 15! And one tale to be repeated at Christmases for a number of years hence if it all ends well. Cheers, Oly

    If I hear about the outcome, Oly, I'll definitely let you know :) But, who is the Luke Chapter 15?

    Cheers,

    Jack

    Nice story. Not too familiar with the bible stories, but I'm assuming the prodigal son, killing the fatted calf etc? Horsewhipping is what I thought he should get. Guess I'll never get to be god.:)

    I don't think it's a biblical oriented story, Mike, but, as for being God, never give up hope :) …. but, as I judge, I think you're about a century and score to late ;)

    Cheers,

    Jack

    Well I googled it and it is biblical, but something about a lost sheep that repented. Seems sinning and repenting gets bigger brownie points in heaven than never sinning at all. Think they need me in the job to sort them out. The old guy's losing it.

    "If I hear about the outcome, Oly, I'll definitely let you know :) But, who is the Luke Chapter 15? Cheers, Jack"

    "Nice story. Not too familiar with the bible stories, but I'm assuming the prodigal son, killing the fatted calf etc? Roving Mike"

    Mike got it right, Jack, it is the third of three parables that Jesus told - all in one go - to an interesting crowd who gathered around him, at an interesting point in his public ministry. There are two standard understandings of the story but it may have a fascinating twist when looked at from a detailed point of view which gives it a whole new meaning. A working knowledge of New Testament Greek may eliminate a possible 'third understanding' or may - possibly - confirm it. I have managed so far in life to avoid really studying any NT Greek! Have to get by, instead, with a modern English translation.

    The first standard understanding of verses 11 to 32 (of Luke 15) has the father watching for the return of his son every day. Cheers, Oly

    Ah so you're up for all the mis-translations eg "virgin" for the Aramaic "young woman"; "walking on" water, rather than going out on the jetty to preach. :)
