I doubt we have completed Q3 yet, Chris...these Russians are hard to read...
Chris: But they do so love a miserable conclusion Ray..
I like the smile on her face...
Chris: She's glad to see the back of him..
a Russian spy is climbing the stairs towards you Chris....petersmile
Chris: Thank you Peter

Been to Moscow then, Chris?
Chris: Just for a quick visit Lisl
So, that leaves some smiling and some wiping their brow, then, Chris??!
Chris: That is what it looks like Ginnie

I wonder if she is thinking about another 'conspiracy-theory'.
The other person is already quite emotional about it....
Great B&W.
Chris: Thank you Astrid. Having drained him of all his money she will now be looking for another potential victim..
The dog peed up his leg as she told him it was over....the final insult.
Chris: Serves him right..

I'm lost on the Russian connection. This looks a bit foreign to me... or are the restaurants trying to sound foreign? Oh dear.. all too puzzling for a Monday. Back to my porridge, I think.
Chris: Blackdog has been running a series with this title. The endings of some films were given two alternatives, happy for American audiences, sad for Russian. He has been illustrating his version of the latter, this being my contribution

This could be a couple break up Mike, clear to see who is the most pleased about it.
Chris: Hahaha - I'm Tiff!

I refuse to leave my dogs for you...

I see you have Chad confused!
Chris: Indeed:

I hope you think my effort was worth it..

Like all Soviet assignations things go pear shaped.

I thought you might like this to cheer you up Chris:

Chris: I remember this classic stuff so well!

I'm glad you explained it to Alan as I was equally mystified.
Chris: I assume that everybody I follow subscribes to Blackdog's too, but of course that is a daft assumption to make..

Yes well worth it - I hope there will be more? Mind you not if it means that Chad thinks he doesn't need to comment on my blog! Silly old buffer that he is!
Chris: He is in a solar system of his own Mike. This is my one & only entry into the genre.
I too have been mystified so thanks for the explanation. Perhaps he'd just turned politely away to give his nose a really good, noisy, blow.
Chris: Thank you Brian

I am now a little less confused having read your answer to Alan.
I like the picture
Chris: Thank you kindly Anne, this was a little one-off, just as a challenge.
Now that that's sorted the dogs would like to move on
Chris: Exactly: time for a good walk
I don't believe it is Russia at all!
Chris: No it isn't Tom, it is the Russian-type ending to a fictional film.

The American version would have a happy ending
