...mispent youth.

Somthing a little different.
I found some old sketches in one of my mothers cupboards, about two dozen from about 1984 to 1986

I have changed some of the notes , my hand writing at 14 was appauling.
I appear to have added "dewhurst", the family butchers at the bottom of the cliff.
This is what made me smirk at this one.

So this would have been about the time Ronnie Regan started playing silly buggers with the eastern block.

This is sort of what dated the bunch for me. Not Sly Stones best film ever.

He he he , sheep skates.
What no red booties.!

My version of the prisoner I suppose. Made me smile though.

My chemistry teacher. Odd fellow.

First red boots spotted in 1985. Woot.
Odds & sods, probably when I stopped drawing & had my 12 year sabatical.

Conclusions :-
a) I mis-spent some of my youth.
b) I was an odd child.
c) I spent to much time thinking about sheep.
d) Iv'e not matured that much.

......,but did it anyway.

Why do we put dolphins in the same class a kittens & puppies?
Not to be eaten unless you're wicked evil, a social outcast or French.

...musical downfall.

A belated cartoon for my uncles 60th birthday, which I forgot.
So I'll make this into a card for him.

Old enough to play the blues with authority.
Too old to remember the tune.

...teddy bears' panic.

...there was panic at the picnic as the fake fur flew and stuffing lay strewn amongst the dasies.

Ok people, It's officially Teddy Bear season. Go get 'em.

A headless teddy was found in the street at work today, makes me wonder how these things happen.....and then of course the mind wanders and you end up with......welll...this.

...high speed dirt.

Flirting with death.
How quickly I forget.
Iv'e been cursing myself this last week for being so unfit & not being able to run around the Rugby field as I did when I was 19.
I should be reminding myself that about this time last year I could not walk ten yards let alone run.

...stingy bits.

So I was taking part of a group of beginers out sailing yesterday.
A young lady walks up to me before we go out on the water & hands me a box containing a syringe.

"If I get stung by a wasp I'll probably die, but take this please."

This kind of thing always makes me feel really good about looking after peoples welfare.
