Off To Their Date



So young, yet so old.

Fascinating glimpse into the fashions and conventions of the fifties. Big frou-frou dresses for the gals, and nerdy glasses worn in a non-ironic manner for the boys.

Stylish.

Bonus :

When whole offices are bored, and get creative.

Kitchen Sink Drama



Other than commenting upon the proudly-displayed tea-towel, I can think of nowt interesting to say about this.

It's from the "Ode to an Ode" set, marking someone's retirement from British Gas Midlands.

What a dull slide.

Bonus - For Nick n Andy

Snowy Times



It may be a summery August here in Slideville, but somewhere in the world, it's a snowy January.

And these two snow-bunnies are taking advantage of the recent snow fall, and are out for a slide.

Bonus - Camera Tracking

Just Triking Around


Sunday afternoon, and little Andy is mucking about on his tricycle. Maybe he'll manage two wheels (with stabilizers, no doubt) in the future, but for the moment, three will be safer.

Oh, and Andy, put on your Tard Helmet.

Bonus - Bye-Bye Mickey.
A few months ago, I had a suspicion that there was a mouse in my house. Odd little movements catching my eye, but no real evidence.  Clearly the working of a drug-addled mind. Plus, surely Mr Reg, the cat, would have dispatched any mousy miscreant.

Today, while hoovering down the back of the sofa, I encountered this.

Poor Mickey. Squashed flat and suffocated under my flatulent arse.  A fate I wouldn't wish upon anyone. Except, perhaps, Donald Trump.

Street Theatre Showcase


Challenging white-faced mimes for the title of Most Annoying Public Art performers, here we have some kids who decided to put on a puppet show for everyone to enjoy.

Nuke them  Nuke them from orbit.  It's the only way to be sure.

Bonus - A German POW's gift to a Jewish American Soldier.
Bonus 2 - Wasted effort?

On The Mini-Dodgems

This brings back a few memories.

No, that's not me in the picture. (Although...)

No, I just remember as a kid the excitement of a trip to Codona's, and the disappointment that the kiddie Dodgems were just...so... dull.

Bonus - Kindlifresserbrunnen: The Terrifying Child Eater of Bern Mystery

Bonus 2 -  "We refer you to the reply given in the case of Arkell v. Pressdram."
