On the other hand, doesn't really know what it's doing...

Part one features randomness from the last days of January, hot from the editing suite...

The paint finishes on these terrace houses on Crediton Green remind me irresistibly of the vanilla and lemon sorbet cones I bought from
Rossi's ice cream van in Tottenham when I was in single figures in the 1950s. There isn't much that I remember with any clarity from those
days, but that van stopping in Bedford Road opposite our house in Clyde Road on a summer Sunday is one of them.

Things are looking up in part one today (have I used that before? Probably. Many, many times).
Part two, meanwhile, is looking increasingly lost.

February Fill-Dyke. Not a promising cognomen, and indeed the plooey did keep me off the camera quite a bit, although I made an occasional effort when the weather co-operated.

Part Two
And in one of the worst cases of oops-a-daisy in some time, I discover I have run out of central Bristol archive temporarily, so a swift decamp to its bottom right corner, around Oldland Common, where we lived from 1990-2005

First off, the Part Two from yesterday that I didn't press the submit button on :roll:

Part Two

Continuing to wander around Oldland Common, mostly in the 1990s. Surrounding countryside is theme today

Brittons Farm
Golden Valley

Image
Good Times

One of those post-boxes where the next collection is always tomorrow, except when it's next week. And that lamp don't belong. Anyways...

Apologies to all non-Brits for the title. May blossom busting out all over by a stile looking across the Golden Valley

Tomorrow, will have to get my arse in gear and sort out some more photos of February. There will probably be more from OC in Part Two.
I went for a few walks in the 15 years I lived there.

Part one is more animal than vegetable and mineral for once, while part two chunters on.
Incidentally, Ms Thang and I are planning a drive-by on Oldland Common tomorrow. Which will be interesting. For me, at least.
Anyways, back to February and attendant joys.

Visitation
C came down to see me just after I heard about my mother's death. I actually went to school with this grizzled, nay whited,
clown-shoed bozo (although, because of my status as a certified child genius, I was a year younger than he was), and he is
now the only person I'm in contact with who remembers both my parents (Dad died in the Holocaust of 1967)
