True Glove


Fashion notes here -
White Tuxedo (not a white dinner jacket) - Hmmm.. Dodgy, unless you're going for the Failed Lounge Singer vibe.
Little Black Dress - Always stylish. VERY sstylish when paired with a pair of white elbow length gloves.

Bonus - Like Father, Like Son

Farmhouse By Moonlight


This is how the slide looked, and the muted colours told me that either

a./  Someone had photographed the farmhouse by moonlight, or
b./ the Ektachrome slide colours had "gone off" with age.

I choose to believe a./

Bonus - Everything you need to know about the Brad/Angeline Divorce.

Bonus - You had one job....
Bonus 2 - The kite I really want...(Yup. Life size.)

Saint Sebastian


Another Art slide with missing subject info.

My first guess was it's Saint Sebastian, who famously had is faith tested by being tied to a tree, and having arrows fired at him. But, the lack of arrows rather worries me.

What the slide does say is "F Coudray 1678-1727 Louvre" so that does narrow it down to Fran├žois Coudray, and a quick check of Wikipedia turns up an image of this exact sculpture.

So, Yay for me.

Bonus - “Who put Bella down the wych elm?”  Solved ?

Toulouse Cathedral



Cathedrals.   Internally.

Not the easiest subjects to photograph.

Especially without digital trickery.


Bonus - Boing. Someone's got a spring n their step.

Bonus 2 - Bored

Linda and Keith


That's all the slide says. Linda and Keith.

No date, no location, not eve an indication is a human, chimp or ventriloquist's doll.

I like to think that Linda's still touring with her Vent Act. Keith, however, will have been replaced by a wise-cracking baboon with a speech impediment. Linda still does OK in the Borscht Belt resorts, but mainly earns a crust as a Dental Receptionist.

Bonus - In response to very nearly one request, another Barra Slide.

As strangers look on, young Melody Happschaft says goodbye to her parents. That'll teach them not to ignore her birthday wishes...

The strangers were more traumatised than Melody.
