No jokes at all!

Camera hasn't left the house this week, and Daughter is on the way down for a long weekend, which means no photographs till she's left again.
But, I do have this poor houseplant Rosy, with two late old blooms drying on the stems. This is one of them. In keeping with the 'Age' theme, I edited the image accordingly.

Here's Old withered Rosy

Just walked in from a lovely week away with the family. Hoping I got something there that will work as an entry, had something in mind while I was there so fingers crossed I got it right.

I`ll have no time for another so this is my entry.

So called as it was supposedly built (in Cambridge) with no nuts / bolts or screws. Story goes that students took it apart to discover how ad couldn`t get it back together again without nuts, bolts and screws so you see plenty! As ever lots of stories - not built by Isaac Newton either as the story goes as it pre-dated him by 27 years.

Chris - I've been suffering with an ankle injury recently. I found voltarol gel was good with the pain. Just a thought, may be worth trying.

I have that but it didn't bring much relief. I find those stick on heat pads, 4 hourly ibuprofen and 4 hourly (in between) paracetamol, so im topping up every 2 hours, works the best. My daughter is a nurse and she assures me that its ok to take pills in that way. Im going to work later, but warned them how I am....no sympathy! They just want me in! Im on 8th floor and if theres a fire/bomb alarm, theres no way I can make it down 8 flights of stairs. However, they are willing to take the risk.

I thought I would try a selfie with some filters to make me look as old as I could without extensive photoshop.  It took less than I expected  :'(

First time entry for a long time, sorry I've been so quiet.

I actually did a shoot last week of a baby of the two-legged variety. Emma ist 9 months and I thought a image from the shoot might fit the bill.
Emma may look as though she sniffing the flower, in fact she's about to stick it in her mouth  :2funny:
