Meet Nancy & Mavis (& Laura)

At a little church in our town there is a stall that sells second hand bits and bobs and in particular books. Now when we were little people we were told our parents that books were very important. We would never have been allowed to draw on them, tear pages or mistreat them in any way. Now here we are hunting down the oldest (& to our parents more important) books for the sole purpose of destroying them.....for the name of creativity and art. Somehow I feel that I should still check with my mum to make sure it is ok.........
Here is my little stash purchased today-money to charity which always makes one feel better......


The Taming of Laura is for my sis.......her name isn't Laura, she looks nothing like the bird on the cover (& neither does her husband I might add!) and concorde never flies over where she lives but hey, I am sure she will transform it into something mighty fine !!!!!!


Whilst looking through the encyclopedia these fell out....

you have to excuse the flash but it is a bit dark here. They look like they are of two women playing tennis, no date on the negatives so not really sure what date they are.
Me being me I decided to try and give these ladies faces........shall we call them Nancy and Mavis????? Hi Nancy.....Hi Mavis.....anyone for tennis?



(The flash has created the burn marks on the image, they are not on the actual negs).


Becky update....livlier than before we even went away!! Eating like she has not been fed in a decade and trumping like she has eaten farmer McGregors whole cabbage patch!!! Vet did say that this whole thing may have happened because she may have a general 'gassey' condition - no kiddin Dr Doolittle..........


Over and out...........xxx
