Well, which would you rather see?

A very quiet day yesterday in the gallery, so I got on with my painting. There was one flurry of excitement when a rather exotic lady arrived with very elderly parents in tow. In a very foriegn accent she asked me to tell her what Ted Coney's Family Portraits was. I tried to explain while all the time thinking ' but will they be able to climb the stairs?' (I had not practised my downstairs tour because no one has requested it.)The lady then tried to explain all this to her father in their own language. He listened in an expressionless way before giving his reply. This was relayed to me with the words ' He would rather see the Cathedral ' Well, you can't argue with that, can you?!' Best Wishes Ted
