Space Exploration - Sunday Stamps II
I guess everyone remembers that first landing on the moon in July 1969. In the United Arab Emirates, Ras Al Khaima issued a set of stamps  commemorating International Cooperation in Space on 10 June, i.e, before that landing. Ras Al Khaima Others in the set...

Hit the road - Thematic Photography
I don't drive much these days and to be honest I was never a fan of hitting the road. These days I take things much more slowly by walking a lot.  However there are some roads that I remember well, including one where the trees remind you where you are. Thi...

Back in November I wrote about Levi's attention to bells and timers. At one-thirty the other night he stood by my bed and poked me awake with his nose. I scratched his head and told him to go back to bed. Instead, he stood up...

You can take a horse to water ... - Sepia Saturday
From the time I saw this week's prompt first appear  ... I been trying to get some local horses to take a drink. However they all are quite happy to Munch away at the grass The smallest one might take a drink -  If there was not a fence in the way. He just ...

It's a Dog's Life - Sepia Saturday
Over the years I have met many dogs and have what seems like thousands of photos of them. Matching this week's theme should not be a challenge for me. Mind you there are some times when even an air stewardess is not wanted. "I just want to be alone" Others ...

It was wartime when I was a boy. I don't remember ever having a train set them. Years later I had an assignment helping British Rail, as it was then, implementing one of the recommendations of the Hidden Report  following the Clapham train crash of December...

Faces - Sunday Stamps II
I wasn't sure how to use my stamps for the "Faces" theme this week.  In the end I had to settle for a young Queen, Great Britain There's nothing second class about her. Then there's her even younger son. Great Britain - The Prince of Wales This was part of ...
