For the Turnstiles

"billboards" !!!
It was warm today in England ( for February )
 So, on a whim ,me and my son Chris jumped in the car at midday & pointed it in the general direction of the West Coast. 
No idea where we were going ,other than "the seaside".
 We later found ourselves on the beach at Hest Bank,Morecambe Bay. Dont worry, I havent heard of it either! Sort of a 'One-Horse Town       [    only the horse must have drowned......? ]
*Crazy ;) *
Anyway.a Nice day.
The temperatures reached 20 degrees (amazing for England in February) And Chris took photos of me & a Ladybird.

Nationalism is like cheap alcohol:

 First, it makes you drunk, then it makes you blind, and then it kills you.

you will never be as sexy as me........

Between ages 10 & 12 I used to go to a second-hand record shop up Haley Hill in Halifax ( next door to a 'temperance bar' )to buy Buddy Holly records.
 He was my first 'rock god'. (de-throned in 1965 by Bob Dylan)
 I liked Buddy's style. geeky-ugly:awkward;shy. The complete opposite of Elvis . Elvis's  whole style seemed to me "you will never be as sexy as me'. Not what a 10 year old yorkshire lad needs to hear.......

 Holly was more a big brother & friend to me than a competitor.( and 100% better musician IMHO)
Anyway.tomorrow ( 3nd February) is the 60th year since Holly died in that plane crash.
again today. i found these two photos on the sepia saturday
theme of "hats" & "men walking"... *just* about scraped it!? 
(Plus a "bonus track" we see Buddy, Jerry Lee Lewis & The Big Bopper walking to a plane )
