I was going to share some videos from Jerry Seinfeld’s “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” but now their only available on Netflix. It’s a shame. That show planted a bee in my bonnet to buy a vintage car.

Sepia Saturday 452 : 12 January 2019

This week’s prompt challenges us with a photo of a train wreck in Ireland and the workers starting to get things back on track. (Excuse the pun.)

I searched for an array of train photos to fit this theme. Here’s what I discovered.

Sepia Saturday

bike fat

When I saw the prompt for this week (above), I immediately thought of Laurel and Hardy. Surely, there must be some fun photos of them with bikes. Here’s what I found.

To see them in action, I’m sharing this clip with them evading someone who’s on to whatever trouble they’ve created. The duo commandeer a donkey costume and hop on a bicycle. Now that’s old time comedy.

I’m thrilled that libraries is the theme for Sepia Saturday this week. I’ll probably post again tomorrow, but here is a start.

One reason libraries are terrific is how they introduce children to reading.

Such organization!

melvil_dewey Melvil Dewey (left) the originator of the Dewey decimal system had his share of critics int the world of libraries. Not only was he known for designing a famous system to organize libraries, he was known to be a serial harasser. Shame, Mr. Dui, shame.

(Dewey was a proponent of phonetical spelling and preferred his name was spelled “Dui.”

This week’s Sepia Saturday honors WWI veterans and I thought I would find and share photos of the war itself, not the memorials themselves.  Here’s what I found.
