That's interesting, Androo. Androo? Must be the Australian tendency to put
an o of everything.

(You may not know that. I have said that to several Australians who seemed
surprised. I first noticed it years ago. I was carpet-cleaning -- pubs
overnight, good money but killing -- and an Aussie who joined us: pass the
spotto. Which meant _would you mind awfully passing the spot remover, old
chap?_)

But back to the poem. It's been several words and none of them quite gets
what she did. It may be that what she did, the real child on the real
wall, may have to be... er... smoothed.

I'll have a think. I'm very grateful to you
