Decided to mostly listen to full albums today, starting with Hawkwind...


...followed by Isaac Hayes...


...who, post a look around the garden...






 ...soundtracked a walk to the grocery store for provisions...





Back home for breakfast and the discovery of a recording of UK, in concert a week or so before the EP and I saw them in London back in March...


Some relaxing in the living room with Hildegard von Bingen before heading into the loft with the phone on shuffleplay, to do some more sorting out...

Found this and brought it down...


The diary of my first trip abroad, to Konigssee in the summer of 1974...


On reading some of it, Anne opined the younger me was a bit up his own arse...


Not much has changed in 41 years...

However, my efforts did gain me some record tokens, with which, I recall, I purchased the first two LPs by Cockney Rebel...

To my mum's, where her new phones seem to be working ok.  We were joined briefly by Sister Sheila and Senior (unpictured)...


On to Anne's mum's for a very well attended fortnightly family tea...


Around the table there was much picture taking...



Kitty was sent off with the brief to "document something interesting"...















..and then, to take portraits of all attendees...

Maureen...


Arianne...


Craig...


Jane...


Bobby...


Anne...


Olly...


Self portrait...


Keith...


Mary...


Portrait of the artist as a young girl...


Excellent eye shot from Kitty...


And, of course, children cannot resist glasses...






...or playing tricks on their old uncle...



Home again and "George Gently" once more entertained...

Thereafter we were sucked in by the opening scenes of the Will Ferrell vehicle, "Blades of Glory", not hitting the sack till 1am as a consequence...

Lights out...

Highlight of the Day : Kitty's camera work...

You're right - everyone's a photographer these days...
