Between the bitter cold weather and being sick with a cold myself, I've had to take naps and entertain myself indoors for the last five days. One of the projects I've been working on is to sort photos from my two weeks in England last fall, which has resulted in wondering, well, what some of them are.
This lot is from an old area in a London Underground station.
While there is always maintenance going on in the Tube, it seemed like this year escalators everywhere were being serviced or replaced and stairs were compulsory.
But how could I begrudge 84 more steps when I would have missed this beauty entirely had I had the option of the escalator!
Alas, I had no photo of the outside of the station and couldn't find the scrap of paper where I had written down WHAT station it was. I tried Google. No help. Then I thought of my London friend Marie and within a few minutes, from just these photos, I had the answer! Marie is brilliant about all things London and you can click here for the answer and a photo of the entrance to the station.
So now I have a question (or six) for more of my brilliant readers.
Every day I walked past this lovely old car parked in the street a block from the house where I stayed in South Ealing. No one was ever around it to chat about it with and it intrigued me. Was someone planning to restore it? What is it and how old is it? Does it run? Where did it come from? Can I sit in the driver's seat?
So, Dear Reader, do you know anything about this car?
Back here in Minne-snow-ta, we're being promised a week long warm-up, starting today! The temps are already above zero F this morning, I'm getting my energy back, and I'm planning to get outside. (Oh, and P.S. I figured out my new slide converter as well!)
