  7. @ Everyone - I was "on call" for the past 5 weeks (luckily I have a work-provided cell phone for this, and don't have to give my personal number out!) I can imagine numerous scenarios attached to this picture.

    (I did get a 10:30 pm call last month by someone wanting to exchange their T-shirt for a larger size. He was from Nebraska, if that explains anything....)

    Mick - how interesting. If I understand correctly, this means somebody paid Christies $42Million for a copy??? Fools and their money.

  14. I didn't see that bit. I saw one of the comments on his Flickr page about Sotheby's selling the original 1961 Buck Rogers panel for one of his paintings for $1.6 million in 1999 (http://www.flickr.com/photos/deconstructing-roy-lichtenstein/306172179/in/photostream).

  15. harlequin - yes, that is me with the phone stuck to my ear, imagining where I'd like to stick the phone ;-)

    Mick, I had that backwards -- didn't realize at first that Lichtenstein was the plagarist!
