exercise IX, Gardiner

You'd think, given the vastness of the internet, it would be possible to come up with a picture of the Poetical Stela of Tuthmosis III, considering there are two examples at Karnak. But Noooººº˚˚˚˚ºººoooOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! What up wid'at?

I'm suddenly sensing harmful chemicals on the tip of my tongue. As if the air is filled with Lysol and bleach. That does it! I'm turning my air fresheners on high and buying a canary.
