Last week.... Frank and Mary commented ...."I felt bad at first, viewing the picture of the "fallen teddy bear," but then it was bemusing....." .And so it is also with me.Dear ßenchers, are you ßemused as well?
This is a Sepia Saturday post.
This week's prompt is around the theme ".....We're looking for any bodily adornments: from girls with pearl earrings to gents with an impressive medal collection (or vice versa), even tattoos would fit the bill I'm sure....." Which brings me to "Alfie" my wife's favourite teddy bear as an infant......they went everywhere together.Almost a "bodily adornment" Non?
It's a good excuse for me to get a over-60's discount Railcard (3rd off every journey!).That should arrive this Saturday..then I can book the tickets.
We spend Thursday looking at Castles & stuff.... [+ Perhaps? the odd Stone Circle? ]+ then stay in the IRBIS Hotel next to the Railway station& the next morning visit Carlisle Turkish Baths for 4 hours or so...then jump back on the train (just across the road from the Baths} & head home in the afternoon!
It's one of the last few remaining working Baths in the UK.One I have never been to before.A listed building I believe. So far , I have been to 10 Turkish Baths .In Edinburgh (still open);Rochdale (shut) :Blackpool (shut): Islington (open): Harrogate (open):East Ham (shut) ;Paddington (open)+ 3 in Istanbul.....Another one for my check list! Check here to read about the decline&fall of British Turkish Baths...........
In July I go see British Sea Power (4th time) at The Hebden Bridge Trades Club.'Taking Chris with me.
