Me-Now-Views; Less Speak More Peek

Still a photo-drought here. The things that happen when there's a photo-drought might scare some. But I'm harmless. Really.

I was pulling an all-nighter on the pre-postings... yes this is one such. It's a month ago really; but don't fret too much about it; makes no difference whatsoever to the conceptual stuff and I do not want to be held responsible for any tearing of the fabric of time and space in your locale. 
Jus' sayin'...

...where was I?... oh yeah.

In one of those moments one has when there is need to stretch the limbs and rest the eyes, for some reason it was deemed imperative that my little op-shop find from last century get its place on the views page. 1987 I bought that and it wasn't new by a long chalk. It was bought from where it says; and where it says also happens to be my birthplace.

Then I turned it over...

How could I have had the thing 28 years and not noticed the backstamp??? Maybe I did, but before the onset of menopoyxinaemia and therefore before memory became an afterthought. You just know that this meant research... Couldn't find this particular pattern number, but I guess they were not particularly interested in monitoring tourist ware.  Still and all; it's a quality little piece.

Thus, LSMP this week has failed on both counts. Hey ho.

      BOL.... if you look real close your Chewinglyness, you will see a pencil tucked in there which does indeed have toofy marks; those are from when angel Jade was puplet and I wasn't watching too closely! I have hardly used that pencil as I didn't want to sharpen it down and lose that memory.... Yxx

  4. It was comforting to hear your theory on not noticing the stamp for 28 years (may have forgotten it was noticed). Me and Stanley are the only ones around here who can remember anything for 87 seconds! Love the photos!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
