After yesterday's subversion of the classic "Men + Fish" slide trope, let's get back to basics.
The picture is entitled "Two Men and some Fish on a sloping lake"

Regular readers of this blog (and I know that there are almost single figures of you out there) will know that there are a lot of "Fisher-Folk Posing With Fish They Caught" slides out there.
Today...similar but different.

One picture remains, and it seems to show the two suspects packing away some apparatus - Fishing Rod? Camera Tripod? Large Hadron Collider? - but what happened next - no-one knows. Or at least, no-one is admitting to knowing.

There's something very wholesome about women of the fifties, like Joan here. Very sensible skirts, and very little flesh on show.
However, tight sweaters and bullet bras provided enough encouragement to the young men of the day.

Couple of days ago, I was decluttering and found a baggie of slides. Beauty Queens !! Yay...score.
Atrocious handwriting on them, but this one seemed to say St Pete Bay Bay Front and was dated Nov 1974. I'm guessing that means St Petersburg and one of the Bayfront hotels. Hmmm Nice.

No details (no surprise there) but something about this bunch of dudes makes me think that they're not regular army folks.
Anyone out there able to supply any theories?

Sun lounger or not, Charlie and Bob have captured it, and are improvising an impregnable fort from it. Very wise.

I'm sure that, like me, you are an aficionado of 18th century French sculpture, and will this love this bas relief.
I suspect that it is La Pêche by François Barthélémy-Chardigny, but I'm unable to track down a picture on Google to confirm. All the slide said was "Chardigny, 1757-1813 Marseilles", so it seems a good bet.
