you gotta laugh - a self portrait.

Why did the Colonel cross the road? To get run over.
That is unfair as I was not actually run over but instead given a free lift 15 yards up the road. -and lift is the right word because I flew through "the air with the greatest of ease". I am now the proud possessor of divers breaks, cracks, dislocations, cuts, stitches, broken teeth, bruises etc. I am reduced to typing this with one finger. It is now six days after the event and this is the first photograph I have taken (using a tripod). I apologise for it's narcissistic nature.

I must take this opportunity to thank all the NHS workers who have helped to put me back together and laugh at all those yanks who sneer at OUR "socialist healthcare".

Mad scenes inside the Bakelite

APM - Rajar No 6, Kodak Ltd - No. 2 Hawkette, Kershaw Soho (Sales) Ltd - Kershaw Raven, Soho Ltd - Soho Cadet.

Only one of these cameras is made of Bakelite (the Kodak) as Robert Zimmerman sang in his famous song "Well its a hard, its a hard, its a hard, its a hard plastic gonna fall"
