This is for a close friend of mine Dave, best known as (Heathcroft). Dave is a magnificent Poser artist and creates some of the most amazing fantasy art you will ever see. His Castle Stories are always a treat and among my favorites. They are always filled with countless colorful characters and the story brings them to life. He has a great sense of humor and always manages to add a little bit to his stories. I'm grateful for his friendship to me during tough times and consider myslef lucky to have gotten to know him so well. This story is such a treat and I only hope I can bring it to life as well as he did for me. Thanks for listening,
Fish Tales (For Heathcroft): When Dave was six he lived in a hotel close to the sea. He was a fan of fishing and loved to watch the old men gather and fish off the rocks of the sea wall. One August Dave was given a fiber glass fishing pole as a present while his uncle Ralph was visiting from Lancashire. Neither of them knew much about fishing but wanted to go. Everyone came outside and his Father Malcolm stood quietly watching and smiling alongside his Mum Eileen, as if they both knew a secret. Dave's sister Maureen was laughing at him and kept him distracted while his Uncle walked down to talk to one of the men who had caught several fish. His Uncle Ralph hired one of the younger men to swim down and put one of his fish on Dave's line without him knowing. Pretty soon Dave felt a mighty tug at his line, and pulled for all he was worth. Almost instantly out came a huge grey mullet thrashing about on his pole. Dave ran around showing his family his amazing catch, and was so proud. It was only years later that they told him the truth about his first fish and this fishing tale.

As always you brought a huge smile and a wicked laugh to my evening! What a fine tribute to one of the finest and most generous of gentlemen here at Renderosity, or anywhere in the world for that matter. As always your portrayal of youthful exhuberance is second to none and the image would bring mirth even if it was not accompanied by such a great story. Well done to the two Dave's who are resposible for the masterful tale.
