LOLOL, I almost exited but then I asked myself 'why the title?' Old sailor returned to find vermin: three letters. Course I could be wrong about the whole thing.

OK, I'm slow on the uptake on those crypto thingies, but yes: tar=rat. But I was thinking the pulley-ma-bob on this dock-side lift arm looked like a cute little mouse, with the string hanging down being his tail, like the old Cat Clocks with the swinging tail! (Which all explains the cryptic 'hickory dickory dock, the mouse ran up the clock...')

I can see it b-n-p (notice kamaly is answering out of turn again. I like the photo, and think you did well with the title. Dianne

Plus, it's on a dock, so it's all very round and complete.

Perfect, I love it! Plus those round yellow things are called blocks, which rhymes with clock and dock.

Thanks Guy, Dianne, not1word and Nawitka (and kamaly too, LOL) So Nawitka - could he be called a Blockhead? I thought this was so cool - and I bet no one else even notices the big mouse watching over the docks.

Super!! LOVE that pic AND the title! Do you know that story concerning an audition of Marlon Brando when he had come to NYC the first time? That was exactly what he had said - nothing else!LOLOLOL!!!

LOL, Sonny - nope, I'd never heard of that one - though I'm sure he made it sound quite profound! ANd thanks!

Nice shot B&P. I love the title too. It's a lot of fun to see through other people eyes (lens).
