Habemus Papam!

Today was much the same as previous days. More work on the drama set, however I cannot reveal what I have actually done as other people will probably copy it or "steal" ideas from it. So, no more pictures until the closing date, which is MONDAY 16TH MAY!!! In response to recent comments the set is 30" x 18" x 20" (wide, deep, high) which is pretty big, about the size of Old Trafford in old money, and there are about six screws to each joint, eight joints, you work out the rest.

Then after that, WHITE SMOKE, BELLS RINGING and HABEMUS PAPUM!!! We have a new Pope!!! It may be a German Cardinal and he did shoot down (or attempt to shoot down) RAF planes during WWII, but we have a new Pope!!!

It's Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (a name to die for surely?) who will adopt the name Pope Benedict XVI (not as good as Ratzinger). I was rather hoping it would go on for two years, rather than two days, cos then they would take the roof of the chapel like they have done before and that would be funny/odd. Well, we all can't have our own way...
