Week 37 – 48.What a Character


Another image from our Scottish trip. Dundee is famous for 3 Js, so I learned at school. Jam, Jute and Journalism. Sadly all three of its famous products are no longer centred in Dundee. D C Thompson was the journalism one and among other papers, they were famous for many comics. The Dandy was one of them and Desperate Dan was one of the characters. There is a statue commemorating him in the High Street. I waited patiently for a person to add a bit of interest to the statue and this gentleman stepped into the frame. I thought he was perfect for the image, looking like a typical character of Dundee. I am not sure if he spotted me or not. So, two “What a Character’s for the price of one.



Week 37 – 27. Memories



I came across this iron when we replaced our last one when it blew up! It is similar to one I used to use as a teenager. My Mum was an invalid during my teenage years and I helped with household chores. One of my jobs was the ironing, which I hated, especially my Dad’s shirts. Using this one is a pleasure and I enjoy using it. Good to get in touch with these resentful memories and replace them with good ones!
