poortoun : "a city with my name on, i will enter in disguise" : Jackie Leven.

see all this week's sepia saturday posts

I am having incredible lucid dreams at the moment: like a box-set I keep getting repeats of 'Previous Espisodes'. Mostly of places I used to live. Hebden Bridge:Halifax:Cheshire:Liverpool:London's East End;London's City ..etc. Warm dreams...but I wake up wondering where I am now......No Partisan!

Jackie Leven:Winchester: 2001. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackie_Leven
It's 7 years since dear sweet Jackie died....... 
here   is my post from that time...........
This week's sepia saturday theme is around that of "bedroom".
 Here are two photos I took of my bedroom in 1972.
 I can date them fairly well, due to the wall display.
I was back at my Mum & Dad's house in Halifax after a year in the City of London youth hostel where I had been working.
I display a pencil sketch of me drawn by a lass from Wales. Some underground newspapers & graphics from OZ magazine on the wall.
No Maps you notice? Just a calendar.
Within months, I was off to Liverpool & teacher training college.
This was my security between the two......
Strange to say, I feel myself ( a little) in that same place again...

doris and the olden days

Me & doris in the early noughties outside the Crown & Anchor pub in Halifax.

A Lovely day.
 I met with Doris for a Greek Meal in Hebden Bridge at lunchtime ( catching up on news) .
It's what grown up people do.
 Strange how we might know hundreds of people in our lives,. but only a few come back to check up where we are now,
What a lovely person.
Then onto Halifax for a few jars with Phil & Ken...................
(Thursday night: ITN News spent 50 minutes looking at this post tonight.What's that about? Are they looking for "the new Trevor McDonald? )

the haunted victorian pencil and his nanny.


Today I went to The Good Shepard R.C. church in Mytholmroyd .
. A Labour Party meeting.
The guest speaker was an Damian Casserley ,economist who was an advisor to Gordon Brown/Ed Balls in the last Labour Government.
 He was talking about the challenges to an incoming Labour Government.
We had tea & cake.
