I think it needs a little bit more than a proper dusting...
Amazing how you always are at the right place in time...
Is that a mayor??
Chris: Yes it is Astrid, the Mayor of Bath who holds office for a year. I am often in the right place at the right time because I have elected in old age to trawl my native city every week, when I have free time, to see what I can capture..
LOL, Chris. I bet they all need more than a dust-off?! smile
Chris: I could not comment on that Ginnie

Oh, we are Bath, England's permanent stage - what a funny scene! "Der Muff von tausend Jahren unter den Talaren" - the student revolution 1968 said. England is a country of traditions, our English teacher said.
Chris: Well it is just that Philine. But what your teacher probably didn't tell you is that half our traditions are ridiculous, the rest completely bonkers!

We would have things no other way..

Those brothel creepers do look like they could use a shine!
Chris: She is there to give him the rub of his life
That's right Tiff, dress up in a silly outfit and everybody makes a fuss of you.
Chris: I have decided to dress in a similarly ironic & colourful fashion when I go to town today to photograph things of historic importance Chad

Whatever next! What will the old traditional inhabitants of Bath (like you) think! Sorry not old.
Chris: It is difficult to imagine what most Bathonians think Lisl, considering their varying tribes & types..
If she has some time she could dust you off too - or bring her home for some extra dusting.
Chris: Oh dear..

She should dust off your benchie, sorry, and yourself while half sitting/half lifting the Popo on the bench- I refer to your last SC bench- picture. I like that half your traditions are ridiculous, our ones are half ridiculous, half serious like the Christian ones (processions, feasts), they are still a part of your/our identity. Traditions can be the putty to hold things together in some way.
Chris: Your words could be my own Philine
No doubt this is a practice dating from prehistoric times?
Chris: From the times of the dinosaurs Tom..
Well she made a good job of the soldiers boots!
Chris: But he can't stop laughing
The soldier man is looking very proud isn't he. Lovely building in the background BTW.
Chris: The building in the background is Bath Abbey Brian

“The seeker after truth should be humbler than the dust. The world crushes the dust under its feet, but the seeker after truth should so humble himself that even the dust could crush him. Only then, and not till then, will he have a glimpse of truth.” - Mahatma Ghandi.
Chris: I think the Mayor is being more humiliated than humbled here Louis..
