The Thames Lockie

For those of you that have never been on the Thames I thought I would explain this picture.

This is the standard 'Lockie'. We don't see these on the canal system, often. They come in all sizes tall, short, fat, thin. Sometimes hairy, sometimes not. They will always give a friendly wave coupled with that right handed salute. No wait a minute thats his mobile stuck to his ear. They all have that. Never off the bloody phone!
