Church door…

 

…Another Church door.

 

Geelong Laneway Door

These last images may be stretching

the theme a little, however…

…the City of York (England) has a wall

around Old York through which visitors

had to enter and exit via

gates and doorways

The famous Menin Gate,

an entrance to Ypres

in Belgium…

 

…and the reverse view.

Lochnagar Crater is…

 

…is one of approximately…

 

…twenty such holes created by… 

…Brtish forces who tunnelled under German lines…

…and detonated large quantities of explosives.

Lochnagar Crater is the only surviving crater

of the original twenty created during World War 1

And is now owned by the

Friends of Lochnagar Crater

which is based in England

Surrounding the crater are several memorials to

others who served in World War I.

There is a boardwalk around the top

of the  crater where visitors can,

for approximately $50 (Australian)

or 25 GBPounds, add a plaque

to commemorate their ancestors

who served on the Somme.

Gog and Magog sound their alarm every hour

in Melbourne’s Royal Arcade

 

Although I have been to London several times

I have yet to remember hearing Big Ben.

   Maybe that is due to traffic noise

at ground level.

Sunday-Stills22-0606-Numbers

~~~~~~~~

~~~~~

numbers

an arithmetical value, expressed by a word, symbol,
or figure, representing a particular quantity
and used in counting and making calculations.
 
 

~~~~~~

 

…followed by learning to tell the time.

 

For the first twenty or so years birthday numbers,

mark important stages of our lives. 

Then we try and forget that we are getting a tad older

with each and every birthday.

 

During my late teens and early twenties,

it was a must to know the address

and opening hours of the local burger store

especially on a Saturday night.

 

During my late teens, I was introduced to these

numbers and for a couple of years joined local

football tipping competitions. 

It took that long to realise that if I had

a bad week (of tipping) it was highly unlikely

that I could catch the leaders during the rest of the year.

 

During our twenties as begin to branch out from home

for work and/or travel, these numbers tend to rule

our lives as we learn to budget as we fend for ourselves.

 

Without these numbers, I would not have known

that this monument was erected, by

public subscription on July 19, 1896.

 

As our offspring age…

 

…which means we have also aged…

…these numbers suddenly become

vitally important to all but the very lucky.
