A very young Maggie sleeping off a hangover. 

A bottle of cooking wine had been emptied

on the ground to get rid of it. 

Maggie thought it a waste. 

She reeked! 🙂

Not a safari shot. 

There was a bout four inches of glass

between subject and photographer.

I was standing a bit closer to Ypres’ famous Menin Gate last year….

when I heard a very English and a very European/Belgian(?) voice

having a chat behind me.

I don’t wear a watch and was wondering the time of day.

(Have a good look at the photo…please.)

and turned and asked the question.

Mr Britain responded along with Mr. Europe/Belgium

only the latter had a huge smile on his face

as he pointed out that I had been facing

a rather large clock prior to turning.

Yachts on Corio Bay.

When living on the farm…

in late September this was a regular sight.

Perhaps not every year but certainly when

the pile had grown to warrant a clean up.

 

 

In the early 1960s, the local Boys Scouts

used to hold a fireworks and bonfire night

on our Football oval to celebrate Guy Fawkes night.

The Scout Master purchased 5 or 10 Pounds worth of fireworks.

He used a blow torch to light to sky rockers, crackers etc.

One year he inadvertently pointed the blow torch and

its six-inch flame at all the crackers left

on a 44 gallon/200 litre drum.

We had the most memorable display of fireworks that year.

Five to ten minutes of crackers popping

and rockets shooting off haphazardly about

a metre above the ground while several hundred people

watched on…barely 20 metres away.

Funnily enough we never had another

Guy Fawkes night in our small township.
