Nice Day For A Spin

This was an odd slide. Not because it was a MonoChrome Slide (Agfa used to make Scala film) but because this was a set of B+W Negatives, mounted in a 35mm slide mount.

Odd. Very odd.

But a nice vintage set - and apparently from 1937.

The Mid-Winter Feast

And on the catwalk next....Noelle

Noelle is wearing an outfit that she design and made herself, with the aid of sunglasses and a pint of Long Island Iced Tea. The outfit would be ideal for a visit to an abattoir, or initiation into a Nunnery.

Bonus  - If you drew a dick on a vampire's face while they were sleeping they'd never find out about it.

Frustratingly lacking any info, this slide really gets mt bran thinking.One question, mainly.

Make Room For A Mushroom

Every year, thousands of mushrooms are purchased for Christmas. People buy them "to have in an omelette" or "maybe we'll have a fry-up" or "I fancy a mushroom rissoto on BoxingDay". Laudable aims.

However the reality is that the musrooms are left forgotten at the back of the fridge, alongside the trifle-infused cheese, and are thrown out in  January when mum has a clear out fridge day.

It's a waste.

Remember - A Mushroom Is For Christmas, Not For Life.

Bonus - No CGI, This REALLY Happened.

Bonus 2 - Remember to clear off all snow from your car.

Here's One I Made Earlier

Unusually, I have a fairly good idea of the subject of this slide.

No, not Mrs Ethel Kubrista, nor her gently psychedelic dress.

But a close examination of the mode reveals "Lower cost housing scheme, Daledene, Lewes Road, East Grinstead".  And here's a flat answering that description.

So, something about Scientology. Maybe.

Bonus - 8 .... 9 ... 10 ...

Neighborhood Summit

A chance to discuss the important matters of the day.

The abstract Something

I've been staring at this slide for several weeks, and I'm still perplexed as to who, what, why, where or even which-way-up.

But I like it.

The Wedding Guests

These two, let's call them Mr & Mrs X (even though they're actually Archie and Sandra Higgins), may appear to the very epitome of decency, are in fact swingers.

In fact, I have it on good authority that under that black woolen coat, Mrs X is wearing just a string of pearls.  Mr X, is wearing a device known as The Devil's Saucepan, and is the cause of his grimacing face.

Filthy beggars.

Bonus - What The Heck, Bangkok????

Bonus 2 - Back-Flip like a Champ!

Bonus 2 - Anti-Vaxx - Bullshit.

The Gateway To A New Life

Yes, this is the entrance to the Cowdenbeath and District Scientology Compound. Situated on Dogbreath Avenue, it provide facilities such as free-range monster truck racing, underwater canoeing and Interactive Goat Staring.

A great place for a holiday.

Also from Scotland. This tempting idea for a Christmas Present. (NSFK)

What The Modern American Bride Is Wearing

This seemed a strangely appropriate slide to post today.

Today, not the whole world rejoiced as Prince Harry announced his engagement to mixed race American divorcee actress Meghan Markle.

Best wishes to them, but ... meh.

Bonus 1 -
10.00am - News is announced of Harry and Meghan
 Soon afterwards - "work and pensions minister, confirmed that the benefit freeze for working age people will remain in place"

Shades of a good day to bury bad news

Bonus 2 - Oops

Ohhh ..... Hello !

We seem to have caught Mindy by surprise. She seems surprised, if not shocked, by the appearance of a man with a camera. Which begs t...
