That's quite an objet d'aths she's toting.

Miss, alright. How come she's missing from the first two photos?

Those guys are a sport team?
There are many mistakes in the labelling of photos in these online archives.
re The Trophy Of Miss Bliss: Nobody would get a weapon like that onboard these days.

The Modern washing machine in that photograph is the same one I had when I first left home. It was given to me by my grandmother, who'd upgraded to a twin tub in the 1970s and kept the old one in the milking shed.

I miss Australia.

That objet d'aths is a corker. I reckon it must have taken about 6 DDD batteries to run.

boynton said...

Miss Bliss, Michelle?
A shadow, shirley...


My first 2nd hand washing machine was a bit like that too, L. The mangle proved useful. Those years taught me to never ever take a Fully Automatic washing machine for granted.

or missed 'er. Australia?

Gummo:
I suspect one would be alert and alarmed to see someone boarding a plane with it these days.

boynton said...

err - to agree with Crystal, that is ;)
