Bonus - You know who else likes fish?... Cats.

Yes, by popular request, it's another slide from the box marked "British Road Signs, 1976".
And what a Stonker it is.
I believe it's not far off the A38 ! Wow.

That's the name of the restaurant on the left, but a mild session of Googling failed to identify this location.
Actually, a restaurant of that name in Brussels looked like a strong contender - that church reminded me of ones in Bruge - but Google Streetview showed it wasn't.

Yes, that's Gordon, with his sisters. And from the use of "zoom" I see that at least one of the (Miss Tillman) is associated with some organisation called Mercy.

Half way up a ladder, a ham and lychee sandwich in one hand, and a leather beer-can cover in the other, when old Bert Johansen shouts out "Say Cheese For The Camera".
It was all I could do to turn half around, and quietly pass gas.

That's what the slide mount said. Toulouse Cathedral, and who am I to disagree.

Parade day in West Virginia, and I guess they're prepared for the cold. Perhaps, if they got off their asses and actually moved around - pole dancing or something - they might be warmer.
Bonus - Just noticed the passing of Gary Owens :-(

All aboard the Western Airlines aircraft.
Western Airlines no longer exists - consumed by the predatory Delta Airlines in 1987,
The plane is interesting - the rather square windows are unusual - not a great design from the stress raiser viewpoint. I suspect that this beauty is a Convair CV-240. But I could be wrong.

...and remember - the photographer kept this hugely underexposed slide. I wonder what his thinking was - "In years to come, I'll show this to my grandchildren and say "I was there. Maybe.""

Although "The Bridges of Madison County" are well known, it's less widely known that covered bridges originate in Derbyshire, UK.
Alvaston, once a quiet market town is now a bustling suburb of Derby, and it was here that the covered bridge originated in 1525. Legend had it that the first one was build to prevent itinerant peddlars from being hit by leaping salmon.
Pictures is the 19th century bridge over the river Derwent at Raynesway.
Bonus - Anyone want to buy me this car ?

"Oooh. lights. Dude there's a moth up there. It's so...wow. It's got a face like Tony Blair,"
Yes kids. All drugs are bad. Even aspirin.
Bonus - Tonight is Superbowl Sunday, and half-time will have some of the most expensive adverts ever seen.
But this one is good...
Seems like quite a while since the last "Funny Looking Kid" post, so to make amends, here's Kevin. Yes, Kevin. You see, hi...
THe first "Tedious Tuesday" of the year. Home it's not too exciting for the zoophiles out there. (Yes, I know who you are......
