LOL:D ...in this staged painting process, dear Eighty+, I realize how I'm getting more and more scary and threatening while aging ...:D
Apart from Your roads, do You need also some refurbishment to Your aqueducts and bridges in case? or to rebuild the wall separating the Scottish? In case You'd get also an Excalibur-type sword for free ....:p
Thank You very much, my dear friend! Revenge is revenge! :p
Seriously, it's just fantastic and this portrait seems to take its own life. I hope it won't be a ghost story for a while though ....;):D

Dear 80+,

Very true, very true. Well, I live in Las Vegas and, as you may know, we have a few casinos in town--one of which is Caesar's Palace. Next time I'm in the area I'll swing by; there are sure to be some grand plumy ones there. :)

Ha ha, I know what the industrious Romans did. I was quoting a Monty Python line from their film The Life of Brian.

Dear ATPLus, You're absolutely right to figure out that Rome had a terrific traffic problem since two millennia ago (and actually it still does).
The love and humouristic poet Martial, coming to live in Rome from the Spain province few decades after Jesus Christ birth, disturbed while sleeping by all the noises coming from the streets, once exclaimed: "In cubile Roma!", that is, more or less "I've got Rome in my bed!"
That was also due to the fact that food and other goods trasportation into the town with big chariots were not allowed after 7 o'clock in the morning (if I'm not wrong), so as to avoid traffic jams due to their unloading.
At that time Rome had about 1.5 millions inhabitants, an incredible size in those times, also considering that fresh water supply all over was supplied by external and underground aqueducts and cisterns and dirt water was taken away by a sewerage system.

well the chariot got threw at last and had to pay another 8o gold buckets that leave's me broke, they wanted more as its a special, they knew he's a bit of a skolar and would want it, that's why they bunged the price up, the old story there's no honest trader's anymore,well I want bore u with my bad luck and leave u to look at the Statue and tell if u think I was robbed??? :D:D:D:D:D:D:D-------------E/S

Thank You for the wonderful mansion You built for me and my friends and statues all around, dear ATP!:)
My compliments also for having been able to portray me uglier than usual and even worse than I use to appear on pictures. Not an easy task! :p
Moreover, looking at those vaguely Adolf like moustaches (the ancient Romans used to shave completely), You made me consider that I was right to have avoided such an ornament and I can definetely exclude I will in the future after I saw this .... :D

Hells Bells I'm in trouble how was I to know he didn't have a mustache, and I've made him look ugly so it looks like I've got spruce him up make him more like Rudolp Valatino, but he likes the summer palace and the statue's so that's a few bonus points so it looks like a lot more todo no
rest for the wicked , ----------:D:D:D:D:D:D:D------E/S
