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

If you're here about the dire artificial reality TV show...Tough Luck.
I'm still not sure if this is a tedious slide, or an artistic slide.
Seems to be some sort or lifeboat...but I Google-Fu has failed.

Goat Rump were an Indie-Pop band who the NME tipped for greatness in 2010, on the basis of their first single "Spittoon Blues".
Alas, the single flopped, and the band soon disbanded.
Their name was inspired by the 1980's phenomenon of Goat Rump Scratching. Children believed that scratching the hind quarters of a goat would please it so much that the goat would produce fresh cookie dough for the delighted children.
Children are stupid.
Bonus - The problem with sex and glitter (note the small "g")
Bonus 2 -Take the essentials ... and go!

On, that Plymouth (?), Jeez, they're so ... Pointy.
Summertime, and a family on vacation, I guess. Pre-Fab Motel, and a full roofrack of stuff.

I'm getting a "Good Life" vibe from this slide. A successful family of a former Merchant Banker decide to give up life in Esher to grow turnips in Herefordshire.
I'll give them 2 years before they give up.
Bonus - Fighting depression

A slide from June 1967, and of a too rarely photographed subject.
Ordinary people, on an ordinary street, on an ordinary day.
This is what real people looked like in 1967. There may be thousand of picture of Prince Charles at his Investiture, but this, THIS, is what normal folk look like.
Bonus - Biggest Then and Now.

When it came to photographs, young Billy and Bobby always like to pose beside the fuscias.
While I know little about Billy n Bobby, I do think that that variety of fuscia is the Bulbous Blumpkin. Next time you're at a Garden Centre, ask for it by name.
Bonus - There are sixteen circles in this image - can you see them ? CFB

Jeff's on the pull. Trying to hide his Humby, Jeff is counting the minutes until he can his hands on Ashley's little titties.
Little does Jeff know that Ashley's safely secured in her Playtex 24-Hour All-In-One Girdlette. It'll need boltcutters to get anywhere near Ashley's Titties.
Bonus - Stuck for present ideas? May I suggest a trip to Bad Dragon - for some Utterly NSFK ideas.
Bonus Bonus - Happy Birthday and this

It's fun to speculate on what Gloria is hoping for, but she certainly seems eager to get it. My money is on another pearl necklace, maybe a black & white one like the one one she's sporting.

"You should be ashamed of yourself young man! Drinking is a Sin! Alcohol is the blood of the devil!"
Now John gets pretty annoyed about this, and goes on the offensive.
"How do you know this, Sister?"
"My Mother Superior told me so."
"But have you ever had a drink yourself? How can you be sure that what you are saying is right?"
"Don't be ridiculous--of course I have never taken alcohol myself"
"Then let me buy you a drink - if you still believe afterwards that it is evil I will give up drink for life"
"How could I, a Nun, sit outside this public house drinking?!"
"I'll get the barman to put it in a teacup for you, then no one will ever know."
The Nun reluctantly agrees, so John goes inside to the bar.
"Another pint for me, and a triple vodka on the rocks", then he lowers his voice and says to the barman "and could you put the vodka in a teacup?"
"Oh no! It's not that Nun again is it?"

In Salzburg, immediately after the wedding ceremony, the bride and groom leave the church, and head to The Institute to consummate the marriage in front of the entire city council.
There's no legal or religious reason for this, it's just that the Mayor is a filthy bugger.

It's the highlight of The Slide's Guy's social calendar. Little Nicky (and Miss Creams) are having a picnic party - AND I'M INVITED!
No idea what's organised, but if there are watermelons and axes involved, I'll be happy.
Subject to A+E and Police visits, I may report back.

With the 2017 Tour de France coming to an end, it's a chance to remember the glory days of the Tour o da' Toons.
Held between 1991 and 2008 (with a break for the swine flu outbreak of 2001), the TodT was a cycle road race around the towns of Huntly, Newmacher, Udny, Echt and Ellon.
This shot shows the eventually winner Calumn Gilhooly (no 604) who appears to have been racing on behalf of the "Highland Cress Bob" team.
Bonus - The KKK vs. the Crips vs. Memphis City Council

From the same set of slides as yesterday's Elephant Safari slide, so I imagine this is the cringe-making "And these were the locals" slide.
Something to show the neighbours, and feel superior over.
Bonus - The Most Iconic Book Set in 150 Countries Around the World
Tuesday, 18 July 2017
but, alas, it's merely mildly interesting.
A close look at the slide, tho painful, suggest that teh subject is (could be?) a bunch of folk setting off on an Elephant Safari.
Or so it appears.
