3rd & 4th August 1979
Went to Timy Supermarche
Posted Sam's letter
Went to a little beach in la Tranche
Went to Salle de Jeux
Bought a huge candy floss
Stayed on the beach all day
Went to Sables d'oinne in the evening (I reckon it was Sables d'olonne)
Had a crepe & bier
Bought a ring = dead good
today Daddy Papersurfer did his impression of this work of art ' Toilet of Venus' by Diego VELÁZQUEZ, which I have called his version 'In Loo of DP'
I am still disturbed that the reflection from the obvious female body reveals the image of DP!!! A thing nightmares are made of!!!
The knitting pattern tonight was taken in a public loo (it must be!) so it is entitled 'Toilet of Knitting'
Oh come on why would you choose a bathroom for a knitting pattern??
A couple of days ago the lovely Nurse Myra posted a blog about being buried alive 'are we dead yet?'. I must admit this hit a cord with 70s as I was incarcerated once as a child when my brothers & a cousin dug a hole, lined it with what ever they could find and told me it would be fun if I got in there !!! (Boys tsk!!)
It got me to thinking about my life in Ainsdale. The garden we enjoyed was HUGE. It had 4 lawns (as it was known as)
1st lawn was a no play area lawn with the roses around the edges my father planted (he loved his roses and plants)
2nd lawn was where the swing was fixed and general play area (you could only play football and cricket there)
3rd lawn was actually the compost heap and veg garden
& the 4th lawn was a massive sand pit (the garden was a sandhill at one time)
This was me C1965 on the first lawn
And this C1968 after they had buried me and I had a stone ready to throw!! How evil do I look??
