Hehehehehehhehehe I can't wait for @LukasB to come back and see all the successes I have had whilst he was on holiday. Or maybe I am more successful because he is on holiday? sweat_smile Either way, thanks for the Red Thinker @Mi-Amigo , I really liked this WRQ and can't wait for the next ooooone!

 

Also, @gmarkj, again, I am sorry but LukasB wasn't the painter, he was the banana in the painting upside_down
