HEAVEN
By Ian Mackinnon
This is Ian's idea of heaven. He's in the garage melting the ends of bits of rope. It's fun and fulfilling. He does it so that they don't fray. He's got 750 still to do, and he's already wondering what he'll do when they're finished. He wishes he had to melt the other end as well, which would give him 1500. He'd like to share his enthusiasm with stamp collectors and cricket fans, but he's not sure they could handle the excitement.

I am going through all your archives. What a great guy. I think we all have had those types of jobs to do and don't we have pride in doing them. hahahaha

I was in the kinks of laughter at this! It appealed to my sense of humour no end! I have since looked through the rest of your films and I especially like Fate, Dolphin and Bed. Having grown up in the midst of Nature, I recognise your affinity with the wilds. I wish you & your family every blessing.

hmmmm yes well, I see what you mean.
