I would just like to take this opportunity to thank Victor for kicking awake the bit of my brain that writes Wight stories.

Thank you.

Oh there's another one. Flower Pots!

Back in a bit, I need to put it into a story.

So that vet got there and said "I'm going to have to put the horse down."

Horrified by-standers shouted "Why?"

And the vet replied, "Because he's heavy and my arms are aching."

Ba-dum.
