Don't know the story behind this one (now THERE's surprise) but I imagine it's the the two lonely chaperones, at a School Prom or High School Hop. Bedecked in white to remind the youngsters about purity. Mmmmm Yeah.

The recently deceased (diseased?) are loaded into the trough, packed in with rags, and the hinged cover closed over them. High pressure air is then used to fire them at a solid granite cliff-face, and after a good spatula-ing, the remains are more easily disposed of in the traditional manner.

From the box marked Majorca, Easter 1971, here's a picture of Colin on his first trip abroad. A school trip from England to Majorca. By coach.
As usual, I don't know the real name of this sotty little dude, but I imagine that he's called Colin. He looks like a Colin.
Strangely, I'v never met a Colin who could be described as "normal". Has anyone ?
Bonus Extra : Banana Mask Fireworks. Speechless.

Those of you with long memories will recall that the road from Easter Rhynnie to Upper Snitterton was started, but stopped after the Fine Fare Ergot Accident. For those not in the know, the foreman of the road crew bought some out-of-date bread and bacon from Fine Fare and the apprentices cooked them up in the traditional manner. Unfortunately, the bread was tainted by ergot and the entire crew suffered delusions and psychoses. The only survivor was Reuben Goldstein who, being Jewish, didn't join in the bacon butty break.
The slide above is a haunting reminder of the dangers of white bread. Let it be a warning to you all.

But how can someone combine cake, frosting, bunnies and pink trimmings into something so malevolent ? Maybe it's just me who thinks that...

Yes, it's Little Ian... and he's thrilled 'cos it's his birthday. And what a splendid pair of braces he's got from his little friends. I guess that the only thing taht would cheer him up mor would be a slap up Indian at a local Bengali restaurant. What about it, Li'l Ian ?

Not a bad tongue-twister - Flocking Flamingo Formation.
While a thing of beauty, a formation of these large flocking birds could cause a helluva lot of trouble if you hit them on your package holiday flight to Timbuktu. But, worry not. Some of the greatest minds of Engineering are two steps ahead of you, and regularly dispatch high-speed birds towards aircraft, just to ensure your safety.
Engineers. Is there anything they can't do ?

Since our last visit, M+M have invested in some garden chairs, and are putting them to good use. No doubt, Milton will be keeping an eye out for those pesky cats, as usual.
Maude, however, seems to have taken a shine to flouncy, bouncy dresses. Obviously inspired by teh fashios on Mad Men

Just been looking at new box of slides, and there's quite a few of mushrooms (w.t.f. is it with mushrooms ?), Hadrians Wall and some form of outdoor photography masterclass. One of which seems to feature James May from Top Gear (RHS). How Rare.

Just imagine that you'd purchased a package holiday tour to La Estupidez De Turismo, touted as Las Vegas's little brother. All the features of Las Vegas, but in a smaller, friendlier size.
Wouldn't you be rather pissed off.
The final straw ? The "Tourist Information" sign pointing to the car trunk. Classy.

Dwayne's just graduated. Woo Dwayne !
Dwayne's recieving his degree in The History of NASCAR Racing (1950 to 1973) while wearing an aquamarine parachute. Yay Dwayne !
But the rest of his campus appear to be trainee Klu Klux Klan scholars, who are intently interested in Dwayne's butt. Dwayne Scores !!
...So why is there a UFO hovering over the stage?

Simple. My first thought on seeing this series of slides was that it was a simple wedding series. (Some lucky sods will know of the picture of the bride from the 2009 calendar.) Two folk get married at the courthouse, and are photographed on their departre. However, the more I thought, the stranger the series became.
Fr'instance. Who gets married at midnight? OK, maybe not midnight, but it's dark enough to need the outside light on. Possibly, they had to wait until midight, so that young Darlene 16th birthday done arrived.
Why are the bride and groom leaving separately? There's a clue in the background, spotted by young Rolo. What I thought was a plate glass window in one of the doors, with a diagonal push-bar is in fact...
...a Guillotine !

The sort of weather that tempted Mrs Mavis Enderby to spend the afternoon sunbathing on the Country Club patio. That's an unusal Swimsuit / Dress / Corset thing she's wearing. I get the feeling that it's under quite a strain at the moment, but Mavis doesn't seem to mind.

Mary and Rose, Springfield's premier gardening sisters, have one Sprngfield Horticultural Society's "Biggest Petnia" competition for 27 years, and it's clear why.
This was their winning 1967 entry, which tragically, was the last year that they won. The following year, the SHS invetigated the real composition of their "magic fertiliser".
Uncle Freddy. Yes, they realised the nutritional good locked up in a human body, and put it to good use.
It's true. Would I lie to you ?

Easter 1973, and an English school arranges an educational trip t Ibiza. Hordes of spotty and hormonal teenagers, with questionable fashion taste head off for week of pools, sun, sand and swarthy waiters.
Here's one of them. Hmm. Nice.

So, have one today. A beautiful young lady, naked in her bath. (That should get a few odd hits via Google.) Plain and simple, and utterly joyful.
Except... Jut noticed an odd pair of legs and shoes behind the bath. Daddy working under the car ? Unlikly, unless his feet point the wrong way. Perhaps daddy's fallen over. Drunk, as usual.
Oh. Bonus extra from HappyToast, over at B3TA
