I see your little green light and raise you 38 blue lights!

It looks like I finally have a little competition in the mechanical fish sign contest... for three more folks have joined our little fishing expedition. Noella Cotnam, from Ontario has joined the fray as has Ken Spencer from South Beach, Oregon and Ryan Grealy from Sidney, British Columbia - all wonderfully talented sign artists. I look forward with great anticipation to the imaginative creations they come up with. Jamie Oxenham from Ontario is still all talk. :)

Doug Haffner (his blog) from Illinois has finally started on his mechanical fish project. It features a round window of some sort and the fish sports one ( very tiny) green light. Not sure what that is all about. :)

Anyway its of no consequence for I see Doug's tiny green light and raise him 38 brilliant blue lights. 

Doug answered my volley a few minutes after I posted it and in the process inspired one tiny addition - a tip of my hat to my worthy competitor. This is for you Doug.  :)  I drilled out the porthole in the door on the dock and added in a green LED. I'll add a frosted glass later.

Stay tuned for more progress reports on this saga...
