Hope this does not offend anyone.

The title is a song by Motorhead (amongst others) also a ballet I think.

Annie was a great model the other day... although she hated wearing my skirt....That I love!!
Thank you Annie.

You have Annie trained so well to model for you. This is a well done manipulation, and not offensive at all. Nice to see you posting again.

Surprised to hear you are a head banging Motorhead fan Mavis.Gotta be an influence from Scara's record collection I reckon.I don't believe this is your skirt either.Gotta be from Cormy's collection this one.But it is nice to hear you love seeing him wear it.It probably looks a lot better on Annie however.She has developed into a very sophisticated young lady with her balletic pose here.I do not believe Danny when he says you have been working on this one during your absence from the site.Were you in London for THAT wedding,and you are going to surprise us with loads of pics of the punters there ? There were a few skirts and dresses on show there after all.But I bet you none of them were bought out of Primark.I wish someone on the site did take the wedding pics.I would have a lot more respect for them.I read that the guy that did,used one of these Medium Format 64 megapixels jobs,and he has a team of computer operators doing all sorts of jiggery pokery on them with adding people in and taking people out.That is not photography in my book !! But what do I know.Had I been the photographer,all these royals would have been standing about,while I was taking pics of the rusty locks on the Abbey door.But I suppose these locks would have been as rare as me getting an invite in the first place !!

Mavis - how could anyone be offended at this - I am sure any souls around that graveyard were so pleased to have such lovely life and vitality around them. It is gorgeous. I so envy you your models - my 17 year old grandson would like a right nana in one of my skirts - plus the fact as he is 6ft 7inches tall they would not even come to his knees. OMG - I am turning into a Mick - goodnight!

That's just beautiful Mavis, and a really accomplished image.

Life is for the living .... you can't be offended by this, but you can learn a very important lesson. We're only here for a short while and soon it will be us beneath those stones. So let rip while you still breathe.

P.S. I'm not keen on the red border line Wink
