My Daddy would have been 93 today!  Wonder how he would have coped with old age... probably hated it, like Tithonus.  He was a real man's man and all my girlfriends thought he was eye-candy, even in his later years.  Actually, he did age well and i thought he looked better at 50 than in his tender years.  That's him & Ma in NZ.Weds 16.05.12 054
And some pictures to celebrate the 1st of June - adorable mog & kitten, Samuri armour, super cartoon, Hamilton Pool in Texas, i'd love this tattoo [with different year!], guardian angel in Warsaw, Utagowa Toyonobu's Swimming Horse, clever tapestry spiders, veg stall in Venice and Yinka Shonibare's 'Nelson's Ship in a Bottle' - clever, no?

I have vertigo, came on me in my forties...agh just seeing those last three photos makes me feel sick but I stare at them fascinated...my fave photo is the Texan pool, I imagine Texas like in Giant, all flat and sandy.
