If you ever go to France or Belgium, always keep pocket change with you or else you'll be forced to use the outdoor public urinals...




Good old Johnny...


And here in England, unless you manage to find a shop during opening hours. Except the outdoor urinals are only in little alcoves in frontages of building, usually with a door into the building.

Do a search for universal skillet lid and you should find some options.
We have a thin aluminum one that fits 12" or smaller, it's old, and don't know where or when we got it.


We just use a lid from one of the saucepans which came with one.

I did make a few exposures today, after work, but no time to process them. Now it is dark, I am having dinner, and then it will be time for bed.


He is exposing stuff - call 911 and send a car with sirens.

Oh, but the K-1 can see in the dark, no problem. It's not as if it is a Canon.

Amazon could probably have some there in a week or so.
I've given up ordering anything but books from Amazon. They let you go through the whole process just to inform you that "we cannot ship these items to your location"

Oh well, their loss.

Aha. I suffer the same problem. I've not touch a camera in more than a week - and then it was for work.
I had a three month long slump this summer. Now I've just started on my third consequtive Dailies. I much prefer the latter - even if I don't have a II

That's an awful waste of a number of good skillets!
Can't be very good, can they. I mean, it's just a .50 cal - just half an inch, almost nothing!

I've seen enough old western movies to know that any saloon table will take more punishment than those skillets!

I have noticed on my trips to US that they economise a lot on the partition materials in the cubicles. The partitions only seem to go down to just above knee height, and doors look like they are for one cubicle size smaller, they fit so badly, and the partitions are low enough a basketballer could simply look over the top.


How come?


Is it just an building materials economy drive or is there some other problem they are trying to solve?
Are you sure you want to know?

Nah, I think he should be allowed to expose whatever he want there out in his woods.

You know how everything is bigger in the US? The bigger gap at the bottom of the partition allows someone to roll you a bigger roll of toilet paper when you realise there's none in the cubicle

I can posit a guess: the architects and builders are perverts who want to facilitate the prurient desires.


Alternatively: they are incompetent and do not allow for the slivers and slices that must be cut from stock materials in the process of building the facilities.

Charlie's slacking, we haven't been informed it's TGIF day.
All day yesterday seemed like Friday to me, so it's my Saturday.

Short road trip for me and Mrs Bob today.
Lunch in a small town and peeping at fall leaves, those that didn't get knocked down by yesterday's rain and strong winds.
