Wives, mothers and ladies cooing over a new-born baby is one of the tired cliche of the family photo album.
However,today's photographer has eschewed that cliche for a slide that features his favourite things. Such as floral lamp bases, white painted walls, folding doors, long-bell door-bells. And Mandy from Maine - his fave red-head.
Before Joan from Mad Men was Mandy from Maine, the flame haired temptress of the typing pool.
Bonus - it's worrying that this needs to exist, but The Mickey Mouse Making Swiss Cheese gif isn't actually real.

This slide goes out to a special lad - Little Nicky J, who is currently clean a mug of tea from his computer keyboard. Hi Nicky.
Today's slide features Mrs Scarlet Blumpkin, who is tending the specially developed rose which bears her name.
For several years, the Scarlet Blumpkin was the top selling variety of rose in Iowa, and it is obvious why. Unfortunately, the variety is prone to attack by the Cadaver Beetle (dermestidia slipknotidae) and fell out of favour in the sixties.

Personally, I find it endearing that people keep these inept photographs. Maybe they were more interested in the clump of Swamp Cypress trees (a guess, I ahave to admit.)
If you do think you recognise the family group, there's a recropped, deskewed version below.
Bonus - Britain's Greatest Super-Hero is returning. Should I be worried?

Another view of the loungers from yesterday,
Further extensive research has uncovered precisely no more information on the revelers, so I can say with utmost confidence that that's Madeleine Thomson in the red swimsuit.
And for those of you want a closer look...

This slide does bring on a slight pang of nostalgia. In my days as a Scout Leader, I used to enjoy having a few nights under canvas, and living the simple life.
Pity those damned Scouts had to spoil everything with incessant whingeing about lack of TV and suchlike.
Bonus - Media Shenanigans... Pointless Letters in Newspapers.

As the Greek economy sinks slowly in the east, it's time for s slightly relevant slide.
Marked as "Jun-72 Crete Knosos", I'll let you decide just how tedious it really is.

I'm heading over to Nottingham this evening, so I thought this medical shot was quite appropriate.
Hopkins' Organ is a medical oddity - it's part of the lower intestine, and acts as a reserve or overflow sphincter. Like the appendix, it collects excess detritus (feces, in this case) to prevent contamination of the more pleasant parts of the LI.
Like Nottingham, really.
Bonus - American, obviously. Maine man dies after launching fireworks from his head

The commemoration of Britain setting free the American States, like parents waving goodbye to a psychotic teenager.
And here we have the Boston Boys Baseball and Gurning Team. Please, no comments about three chaps gripping one shaft, or the chap with a pair of balls in his hands.
Bonus - A woman has been caught on camera stealing a flatscreen TV from a department store in Zambia in the most bizarre way.

Yes, it's a stinking hot day here in the YouKay, and obviously it came as a complete surprise to 97% of the population.
Time to put on your cozzie, head down to the beach / lake / effluent pipe, and talk incessantly about the weather.
It probably seemed funny to Wilf at the time. Strangely, Wolfred's dog buddies don't know him as "Wolfred". Nope, his...
