Think Big. Son.Then In About 50 Years You Can Be like me Surely I'll never be as big as you, uncle? Course you will, we're both giant tortoises. But I'm only five and a half inches long, you're three and a half feet. - Yes, but I'm fifty-five years old, you're only three. But you weigh three hundredweight, too. I'm only seventeen ounces. -Aw, grow up. It's just a matter of time. I'm not sure I like this Bristol Zoo place, uncle. I'd sooner be back in the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean where I was a few weeks ago. - A giant has to think big, son. Better to been big giant in a small pool, as they say. Now out of the way before I sit on you. January 1966 P004223
