Happy New Year

For some reason I thought New Year’s Eve was on Friday, when actually it was on Thursday, so we had no arrangements made, and what with Ginger’s cold weren’t really in a position to do anything anyway.

Ginger and Tubby

Our resident Cat lady and Tubby, one of our four cats.

Blue Kitteh

Despite being a haughty madam I have to admit that from time to time she looks wonderful, and tonight under the lamp with the Christmas tree (blue of course) behind her it was a picture asking to be taken.

Honey-do List

This week I’ve been working on my ‘Honey-do’ list and managed to cross off four items: Fitted a new front door, replaced the broken light switch in the kitchen and replaced the light fitting in Alek’s room. This afternoon saw… Continue Reading →

Luna Corona & Flag over the Brentwood Library, Springfield Missouri

Meet my old friend Penfold

Ginger and Gary’s Wedding day

At four pm on 20 February 2009 we got married. Here are a small sample of the 800-odd photographs we have of the day.

Hornby O Gauge LNER Bramham Moor electric model railway engine

From what I can find on the Internet, this Hornby O Gauge LNER Bramham Moor electric model railway engine was manufactured sometime between 1936-1941. So it was well used by the time I got it around age 5. Unfortunately it… Continue Reading →

Goods and Chattels

Today has been a day of unpacking. After two and a half months of waiting my stuff finally arrived. Twenty four boxes and one desk. Eleven of the boxes contained just books. The remainder held personal papers, clothes, my computer,… Continue Reading →

A Taste of summer

January and the temperature is up in the seventies. After driving to St. Louis and back we got a chance to sit in the back yard.


Having wasted most of my day on Flickr-y things like slimming down my sets, adding new sets ready for the new year, and other general housekeeping, I decided I needed to keep Ginger company, and ended up sitting on the… Continue Reading →

A new project for 2009? I gave up on my second year of 365 days sometime in August last year; I still haven’t got round to posting all the outstanding pictures, and anyway taking self portraits every day had become… Continue Reading →
