Hebden  Bridge: 1920's

I took myself to Bacup today. I visited Bob.here are some photos I took.Lovely bloke

So the  sepia saturday theme this week is "bridge"
As I was in Hebden Bridge this weekend. How could I resist? 
I turn 65 on Sunday.
(I retire from work-again!in  the middle of August.)
I keep checking my mirror.My skin is already  turning sepia......so it goes.......

Nonsense, Tony. You're as young as the filter you use! :-)

I have always thought that sepia added a fine patina of interest and I am sure it does to your good self. Let's meet up for a pint soon to catch up.

Retire away, and keep that camera clicking! I'm 10 years ahead of you, and have found my life keeps on moving along, different every day. Blogging is a great outlet for my thoughts, creativity, and sharing with friends. Loved the slide show! And I'm absolutely thrilled by the kids on the see-saw...including a dog in the middle!

I am going to figure out a slide show one day. Long as your knees hold out, it's not so bad getting old. Unfortunately my knees are giving out more and more. Still better than the alternative.

That seesaw looks rather precarious with all those children on board! I may or may not have been to Hebden Bridge, but I've stayed in Rochdale which looks to be not too far away.

tony said...

Rochdale is quite closeby, Jo:Alan I retire 3rd week in August,So plenty of drinking time after that! Yes, another drink out would be grand! Kristin Yea! my joints are a tad creaky too...!Barbara yea I still think blogging is the most creative platform on the internet.

Cheers to you, Tony! Remember it's the patina you always want to preserve on any antique. Makes it more valuable. (Great choice of songs too!)

tony said...

Indeed Mike.Preservation with style!

I forgot to add how impressed I am that our good president took a break from twittering to send his congratulations to a foreign non-constituent! Do you think Her Majesty will call?

Happy Birthday and Happy Retirement. You don't look withered and wrinkled, so you must be doing something right! (I always enjoy your music.)
