A Bit of Fry & Laurie
The word today is Fry. Now I've said a million times before, I don't do cooking. I leave that to the experts (Andrew, Teresa & Lisa). So when I logged on to HSMSHS this morning and found today's word I knew I had to think out of the box and, well, basically cheat yet again. The first Fry that came to mind was a Fry's Turkish Delight (Mmmmm chocolate - said in a Homer Simpson voice lol). That meant a trip down to the shops to buy one so I didn't bother. The second Fry I thought of was the fantastic Mr Steven Fry. So here he is as my 'Fry' photo today. Which leads me on to talk about the other half of Fry ~ House aka Hugh Laurie. I had a sneaky suspicion that the next installment of House would be cancelled due to the American presidential elections so when I logged on to sidereel this morning I wasn't surprised the link wasn't there. (I'll just have to watch last weeks episode again to get my 'fix'.) I have no idea about politics, even less about American politics, but I was pleased when I found out that Barack Obama had been elected. I love 'firsts' & Mr Obama is the first black American president ~ cool! Thought I would catch up with the photos I missed over the last few days :O) So here's yesterday's Shimmer taken at Hardwick Hall last week. (Can you see the sun shimmering through the leaves?)Saturday's 'collection' (which should have been a photo of something I collect but the light is so poor today a photo just isn't possible). These Russian dolls were in a shop window in Pavillion Gardens, Buxton. Last but not least, on Sunday SuzieB asked us for a photo of ourselves when we were young so here's mine :O) It was taken just after I had won an award in the brass band I played in. I think I must have been 15/16 ~ many moons ago lol. George (the one in the glasses) was my tutor.
