Aliens? / Extraterrestres?

THEIR HOME PLANET must be brutally cold. It was 12C (54F) here in Fuengirola that afternoon and they were dressed for summer. In any case, shouldn’t this sort of alien be illegal?

SU PLANETA NATAL debe ser brutalmente frío. Hacía 12C (54F) aquí en Fuengirola esa tarde y estaban vestidos para el verano. En cualquier caso, ¿no debería ser ilegal este tipo de extranjero?

Roll Another One / Enrolla Uno Más

My only excuse is that I was 19 years old in 1973 and most likely stoned when I dressed for my cousin’s wedding.

Mi única excusa es que tenía 19 años en 1973 y lo más probable es que estaba drogado cuando me vestí para la boda de mi prima.

A Short Post / Una Entrada Corta

JUST A “SHORT” post today. All is well with my eye, I think. And, unlike this guy, my legs match.

SOLO UNA ENTRADA “corta” hoy. Todo está bien con el ojo, creo. Y, a diferencia de este hombre, mis piernas coinciden.

The Original Sweater Girl

If you’ve been with me since August, you might remember the huge collection of knitwear, all made by My Mother The Dowager Duchess. In addition to the sweaters pictured in a post from August 25 (click here), I set aside photos of some special ones to share with you when I had the time. Well, I have the time.

Of the items pictured below, I only remember the first, which my mother made some time in the early 1960s. The others were all new to my eyes, so, while sorting through her photos, I was really pleased to find a shot from 1984 of the Duchess wearing the last one.

WITH INDIVIDUAL CRYSTAL BEADS. THIS WAS PAIRED WITH A FLOOR-LENGTH
TAPERED BLACK SKIRT (ALSO MADE BY THE DUCHESS). CLASSY.

1984. THE DIFFICULT YEARS SHOW IN HER EYES.
(BUT NO DOUBT THAT WAS CLUB SODA IN THE CUP.)
