Party At PineTop Peak


To celebrate Slide Number 3000 (*), here's a favourite of mine.

Open air breakfast on a sharp October morn, with a rather wonderful kitchen/trailer. (These trailer pods seem to be gaining popularity. Plus ca change...)

(*) - Yes slide numbered 3000, altho' Google tells me that this is BlogPost number 2988. Must investigate...sometime.

Bonus - Squirrels and swingers: Colorado man defends his passions after police raid

Smuggler's Cove


I hate it when I find a decent slide, and there's no information on it.  HATE IT.

Especially when I'm fascinated to know where it is.

This one is probably Cornwall. Or Devon, but  damn you inadequate slide cataloguer.

Bonus - Celebrating 20Years...The History Of "South Park"

It's A Man and A Horse


August 1978, and most of England is obsessed with the emergence of Punk Rock.  However, in one part of Shropshire, a yokel is still impressed by his Shirehorse.

Bonus - Turn your swords into ploughshares and your helmets into...Oh That's interesting.

Bonus 2 - Skateboarding to the Beach. Well, that was predictable.

Junior KKK outfit, prior to their up-grade or "Topping Out" ceremony when she reaches 18 years of age.

But I could be wrong.  And I'm sure you'll let me know.

For those who are confused - Flatiron Building.

Bonus - While looking for the subject building, I did find 88 WAYS TO DEFORM A BUILDING

Not All Scenic Slides Are Trash


I may have miss-led you into thinking that all slides of scenery are crap, but that would be wrong.

There are many excellent images of scenery, and indeed it's my preferred subject for photography.

What I might be saying is that a majority are humdrum, and a fair proportion are trash ... but some (like today's) are rather good.

Bonus - RIP Phil Chess. To mark that...

Bonus - Drone + LED Floodlight = Awesome.

The Origin of Goat-Boy


It seemed like a normal family trip to Whipsnade Zoo, one Easter, but it was here that young Gerald that started his journey to become Goat-Boy.

Years later, miscreants and super-villains in Luton would fear the name Goat-Boy, Defender of Justice - and his side-kick Nanny Girl. Now, who might that be....

Bonus - Might even play "Cards Against Humanity"

Jeremy's Jeep


I have a friend (No, really, I do.) and he claims that this young lad is definitely Jeremy Clarkson.

Me, I can't see the likeness at all.

But then again, I can't tell you who it, so there is a vague possibility, this is the Producer Puncher himself.

Bonus - Pigeons in a Grain Silo. (Not suitable for vegetarians....)

The Dark Lunch


Another crappy, underexposed, mis-focused tedious slide. One with no redeeming featured.

Hope you like it.



However, here at The Slide Guy, we don't give up on thesewretched slides. With a little play with the light levels... voila!

Slightly more detail.


Bonus - TeddyB√§r - in pictures

Try Your Luck, Madam?


Perfect sunny Sunday, would be great for a church fate or fund-raiser.

I bet in this modern age, the simple pleasure of a Roll-A-Penny will have been replace by a cyber-Pokemon-auction or something.

Bonus - Now that's wrong.  Frozen-Inspired Bra Changes Color When You Bump Boobs With a Friend   With video.

Interesting Architecture


This is one of "those slides".

One where you go "Oooooo. That's slightly familiar."

Well, I saw this and immediately thought it might be in Yemen.

Some Googling, and yes, it's the famous city of Al Hajjarah.

Slide probably dates from mid seventies, so that's a rather daring holiday chose for this game old bird.

Woman Kisses Totem Pole



No. That's not a euphemism.

It's a Native American (is that still an acceptable term, or should it be First People') Totem Pole. Being kissed by a fully clothed woman.

Nothing weird or suspicious about it.

Woman Take Umbridge At Tree



Who, where, why, when or even what?   I don't know, but clearly this miserable old biddy is offended by something.

Maybe the tree. Maybe the flowers.Maybe the naturists just out of sight. Who knows.

Bonus  The Facial Expression on this eagle :-)  (Clickee Biggee)

The Fun-Time Dance and Hippity-Hop Crew



This seems to date from a very specific time in history. Robot Dancing, and the emergence of Hip-Hop...is my guestimate.

Bonus.  Frank Thinks He's A Bat. (NSFK)

How Gravel Is Made


That gravel on your driveway - have you ever wondered where it comes from?

Across the world, lowly paid mothers spend up to 190 hours a week breaking boulders into smaller and smaller parts. Then, the best, most attractive, pebbles are selected and shipped to a acility in Guadeloupe, where the inputs from 45 different locations are mixed according to a dealers requirements. Bagged, and labelled, the fresh gravel is then shipped to you.

Phew.

Bonus - The forgotten tragedy on 22-Nov-1963. The Staten Island Ferry disaster.
