Time For Change? Just Don't Forget The Past


 With many bloggers having a Spring Clean and updating their blogs with new, fresh designs and ideas (I am thinking about it myselves), it is important to remember where we came from, what we've accomplished along the way, and what didn't quite go according to plan so we can learn from our little mistakes in an effort not to repeat them ad nauseum.
 So, from the archives of certain bloggers, I have gathered a small collection of incriminating fascinating photos just in case they get "deleted" in their respective Spring Cleans...


LẌ looking glum in his homemade Ren Faire costume after being lumbered with Herr Mago's do-it-yourself Sunday Music paraphernalia

And here's Herr Mago himself!  Doesn't he look thrilled to be Princess's personal knicker elastic tester?


Sick to death of changing stinky diapers, Savvy takes one of her many grandchildren to the carwash -
the only facility capable of dealing with such stenchful excrescences  

An unfortunate dental patient of Dinahmow's.  This Victorian Borg tooth straightener was banned not long after this photo was taken

One of Beast's many girdles that he "grew out of"...

"Another three days on gas mark four ought to do it!"
Here we find Hound testing yet another pair of tin foil underpants

Ms Scarlet undergoing her fortnightly depilatory treatment at the Infomaniac House of Beauty

"Oh, gods, I'm bored.  Is there much more of this?"

Princess rigorously tests every gusset for wear and tear.

The district nurse putting the finishing touches to Norma's suppository prescription 

Norma generously lets the neighbourhood urchins play 'rocket ships' with her used prescriptions...

Mitzi enjoying her seventeenth pint of crème de menthe in the Rovers Return

The Very Mistress's gynaecological engineers prepped and ready for  action!

The Very Mistress's patented panty-pad with wings provides extra support, comfort,
and freshness on those heavy flow days

"Yikes!  I can't believe you went there!"

Mistress Maddie tiptoes out before she gets caught in the crossfire

Looking after one's nephew and nieces is horribly aging, isn't it IDV?
Hey!  Who put this photo in?

 Should you be disconcerted that a small number of bloggers seem to have escaped my notice, don't despair: there are plenty more photos in my files that I need to sort through...

  1. I now feel the need to cleanse my annuls, and perhaps install some new decor.... and, perhaps I will add some nice knitting patterns to my sideboard.
    Sx

    P.S I have this:-
    s�D@
    hanging over the comment box. What does it mean?

    1. Knitting patterns sound like a splendid idea! The one you're working on in the photo above doesn't look like it's too complicated as you're not frowning and your tongue isn't sticking out of the corner of your mouth.

      P.S. I have no idea what s�D@ means, or why it's there (I can't see it as I type this)? I was messing around in the settings yesterday in an attempt to make some of the text bigger (after Dinahmow mentioned difficult-to-read-tiny-text somewhere), so maybe I touched something I shouldn't have?

  2. Damn you, psychically going through my undercrackers. If it wasn't for you I wouldn't have developed the tin foil fetish at all, and now I don't know what I would do without it sigh

    1. Oops. Sorry.

      *pops to Post Office with tin foil care package for Hound*

  3. Yes, it was very much a struggle. I was, however, grateful that the instruments weren't for Oom Pah Pah Sunday Music!

    PS: It looks like Princess might have had a little "accident."

    1. Perhaps a variation on The Very Mistress's panty pad with wings would have come in handy for Princess?

  4. Gosh, this seems like ages ago...no wonder I forget about that whole Egyptian phase. But definitely covered more than the Garden of Eden phase....but not as confining as the Victorian one.

    And now that I see the picture of Norma's suppository prescription...this explains a lot of the looks in many photographs.

    And these must be very old achieved photos....am I not correct in thinking MJ'S gynaecological engineers now have to wear full scuba suits?

    And screw the updating....just change to a new style of underwear.

    1. Nowadays, its only the very largest that can induce a smile from Norma!

      And as for The Very Mistress: these days only a full-on Jacques Cousteau bathyscaphe will cut it!

    2. P.S. Consider my underwear changed!

  5. Those three fellas gearing up reminded me of a classic poem that has graced many public restrooms walls:

    No muff too tough
    We dive at five


    I hope those hardy, brave souls survived the hazards. When I was a kid, I had no clue what that poem meant. As an adult, I marvel that someone actually had enough time to waste to scribble on a public restroom wall.

    1. Perhaps whoever the scribbler was didn't have enough fibre in their diet?

  6. I know, right? Thank goodness, those little suckers are potty trained now! ;~)

    1. Yes, that's it for now. That pebble-dashed façade is the most embarrassing one I could find!

    1. I don't know, Mago? I checked the spam folder, but it was empty - not even any of Hound's comments in there (as usual).

  8. Good lord! Even back in my day, dentistry wasn't quite that bad!Mind you, I did use some pretty scary implements...
    And anyone who can down creme de menthe by the pint deserves a medal!

    1. Oh, you disappoint me, Dinahmow. Unless, you're just protecting patient confidentiality...?

      I don't know if you ever saw Ground Force (the gardening makeover show hosted by Alan Titchmarsh), but Tommy Walsh and Charlie Dimmock (the muscle) used to joke about going down the pub for a pint of crème de menthe after the show. At least, I think it was a joke...

      Delete
    2. Well, there is that...

      Oddly enough, on my desk at the moment are a dental probe and an amalgam carver. I think I may have used them in a pottery evening class...

      Some gardeners do have odd tastes so it may not have been a joke.

  9. You do notice of course how those suppositories transform once I've ejected them.

    It's all nice and fine to test Prinny's stuff, but I hate it when zhe elastic breaks ... Then it's back to DInahmow's teeth straightener and jaw corrector ...

      [unrelated, sorry]

      This is beach related. This link should bring you to a series of photographs showing beaches. Just in case you might be interested.

      Delete
    2. I wonder if Prinny's knicker elastic comes with a health warning?

      The beach pics are wonderful, thank you for pointing them out, Herr Mago. And I'm sure Ms Scarlet will be pleased to see the Jurassic Coast from her neck of the woods.

    I can't forget that old quartet that sang Sweet Adeline."
