57 and it gets frustrating. Some great puns in there.

On 67, which means I can't go to bed until I get them all.

Some frustratingly colour-based clues...  >:(

mouse or rat? not got that one. Nor the can. Nor the outline of a burning man. At 65 and struggling.

69/75 and for while now it has been like pulling teeth.

EDIT: 73/75. Not sure I have the capacity to do the last remaining two.

Indeed...
I'm struggling with the 4 nuns and whatever the bloke in front of the zebra crossing is carrying.

And, no. I do not want the answers.


Yet.

Thank you  :)

Will go back and try to finish the others I haven't got.

That one made me want to kill things when I finally got it.  Clever and evil in equal parts.

I'm up to 54 I think. Yesterday I resorted to pulling up a list of tube stations and combing through it, and still only solved two more, with a couple suddenly springing to mind anyway. 

I've got the mouse though.
If I had a baby elephant, it could help me wash the car. If I had a car.

I was there at around 14:37 today.

.....You're not even from here.

Yes I am.
And there was me thinking that you really are from the future. *Disappointed* ;)

You'd be right cheesed off then..


Yup. I'd tried a different variant. 

For some of these I may be reduced to the brute force approach.

The fish is one of those exception that proves the rule type things.

As for the fountain, pay closer attention to the ceramic work...
