I only saw this photo for the first time yesterday.
From Left to Right; Cro, JB, Kimbo, Tenpin, and Lady Magnon.
The picture must have been taken in the mid 70's at JB's house. I had just built the small wall, on which we are all sitting.
Whilst actually building the wall, JB had offered me some Carrot Cake, which I must say was AWFUL. In fact it was so awful, that I built it into the front of the wall. I presume it is still there to this day.
I have no idea why I look so bloody miserable; I must have been under the influence of Lytton Strachey.
Ha ha, that made me laugh; you sound like me when I didn't like my food I'd hide it under the plate,but not a good hiding place like that wall. Lovely family picture; you look pensive there. Greetings Maria xReplyDelete
This was meant to be for tomorrow, but I pressed 'publish'by mistake.Delete
I always wonder how different and a like we look in old photos, it seems like someone else, (i just found a photo of my self from the 70's and had those thoughts).ReplyDelete
I look so young in this one.Delete
You were so you in that one!Delete
Glad to see someone else schedules ahead. Quick! Save as draft and then post tomorrow! xReplyDelete
And then posts by mistake.Delete
Ah the memories, Cro. That carrot cake probably had a life of its own!!ReplyDelete
I left it showing, nicely pointed.Delete
You all look bloody miserable.ReplyDelete
I can't think why; it's like we just had some bad news.Delete
It seems you have been building pretty walls for a long time.ReplyDelete
JB's mother wanted a wall with a small planting area for herbs. Her terrace was tiny.Delete
You are all looking very Amish there. They are a dour lot.ReplyDelete
Grumpy AND Amish... a good combination.Delete
The photograph reminds me of many I have of friends and myself from that era. We didn't build any walls, but some of did bake carrot cake. I used to bake two loaves of bread every Sunday.ReplyDelete
All a long time ago. Your hair styling is similar to that of many of my friends.
Glad that you and Lady M are now feeling better and enjoying spring.
Yes, we're both back on good form. Thank you.Delete
Perhaps you'd been found out and JB knew where you'd put the carrot cake ! Friendships have foundered on less !ReplyDelete
She knew; I showed her.Delete
I don't think you look awful at all - in fact I rather fancy you in a seventies kind of way. As for Lady M - she looks fantastic.ReplyDelete
She always looked fantastic.Delete
Oh LOL at building the carrot cake slice into the wall! You look "cool" and real 70's. Thanks for a great post! JoReplyDelete
I would rather have eaten a lump of stone.Delete
Grumpy old cunt.ReplyDelete
Now you know why my grandsons call me 'Grumpy'.Delete
