Wet Plate Collodion

When Wills went to Russia, he bought some Russian Uniforms.

He likes their uniforms, and so do I.

They are full of pride and military bearing.

This day is a special day, it is yours.
Yesterday slipped away, it cannot be filled anymore with meaning.
About tomorrow nothing is known.
But this day, today, is yours, make use of it.
Today you can make someone happy.
Today you can help another.
This day is a special day, it is yours.

Its Rum time…

I confess: I do like Rum.

Years ago I used to like it more than beer and some days I still pine for those earlier experiences with dark rum.

They were like a lovers embrace, with moments of intimacy and excitement. The dark rum I drank greedily in Gibraltar, or the many kinds of rum I drank in a backstreet bar of Kingston, Jamaica.

These days the love affair has to be tempered as I can no longer ride the bucking bronco, which is Rum.

A Swedish friend

The last time I was in Stockholm I bought this little chap. Some kind of Christmas decoration.

My dog goes crazy when the little chap makes an appearance, wanting to run around the room with him, so I have to put him up high, out of harms way.

I’m sure he doesn’t mind.
