Year: 2009

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.

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

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.

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 me working on the fourth project, which involved performing major reconstructive surgery on the couch …

Unknown to me when I took this shot, the camera’s shutter had jammed – fortunately on the left side of the frame. I had to post process the picture to remove the shutter’s shadow from the picture. I had better shots but the shutter was too obvious, and post processing wasn’t really an option.

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.

Photograph of a Hornby LNER Bramham Moor

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 is showing the battle scars of many a boyhood train wreck. Here’s a link to …

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.

Gary Allman and Ginger Davis enjoying a warm day in January 2009

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 sofa researching whisky (in the glass) and double decker buses (on the Internet) while Ginger …

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 boring, all I was doing was dashing off any old picture just to get it …
