If You Want to Get Ahead....

I am a man of many ongoing projects, all of which involve transferring the contents of teetering boxes of stuff (be it audio or visual) onto a digital medium, and few of which I'll probably ever completely finish. Still, I'm having a great deal of fun along the way, particularly with my recent car-boot sale acquisition, a photo scanner, which is allowing me to fully explore the family negative and slide archive. Mind you, I've only just begun to scratch the surface and have already discovered many a dodgy snapshot of yours truly - the moustache period of the mid-1970's, what was I thinking? Then, of course, there was my early 1960's penchant for very small hats.

Well, what a fabulous collection of headwear. You were clearly a style guru in the making and I hope you continue to sport the 'tiny hat' look on special occasions!

I love seeing people's childhood photos and really appreciate these, so I'm afraid your mere mention of the moustache is not enough. We need to see some evidence, please - photographic evidence!!

Thanks C. Sadly all hats seem tiny on my head nowadays! I'll have a think about sharing a 'tache pic, but I'm not keen on the idea!

What a collection of titfers! Wonderful. Now - about those moustache pics? Come on!
Can't listen to the song as speakers currently busted. Sob.

SB. Oh no! Hope the speaker problem isn't too difficult (or expensive) to fix.
