Great Job By Our Phil

This scarf, one of my favorites and by no means cheap, was chewed up by certain unmentionables on a shelf . Two others had the same fate but were unfortunately too damaged to be repaired. Phyllis did a great job repairing this one. She did a wonderful job I think.

St. Patricks Day In The Oregon Countryside.

Dinner was so good that not a picture was taken. Too bad!

Great Uncle Michael's Grave in Picardy France

This cemetery, which is named after a communication trench which ran through the area, was begun at the outset of the Battle of the Somme in 1916. It was used by units fighting on that front until the German withdrawal in February 1917 and was used again by fighting units from the end of March to July 1918, when the German advance brought the front line back to the Ancre. After the Armistice, burials in Rows G, H and J were added when graves were brought in from isolated positions on the battlefields of 1916 and 1918 round Mesnil.

An early shot of a Dub's Dub. Not sure what make this guitar is, but Ronnie later loved his Takamine.

The Hell Fire Club Dublin

The history of Dublin's Hell-Fire Club, Rathfarnham. Overlooking Dublin city from the south west, at an altitude of 383m (1264ft), is a foreboding ruined hunting lodge, marked on Ordnance Survey maps as the 'Hell-Fire Club'. Current urban lore insists on telling us that it was - and still is - a site commonly used for the practice of 'Satanism' and other occult activities, and that the Devil himself made a brief appearance there at some unspecified time in the past. In a story similar to the one attached to Loftus Hall (a haunted house on the Hook Peninsula), a mysterious stranger seeks shelter on a stormy night, and a card game ensues. A member of the household drops a card, and sees that below the table, the otherwise affable and charming visitor has a cloven hoof. His or her screams made the Devil 'aware of her discovery, and he at once vanished in a thunder-clap leaving a brimstone smell behind him

Nice study of Brian on his guitar. I took this when he was over here a few years ago. Don't know if I have already posted it but I like it enough to post it again if I did.
